Futures Fins Alpha Series Controller Quad


Welcome Back Quad!

In case you haven't noticed Quad Fin setups are in and Futures Fins is on point! Not long ago the surf world thought three was better than four, thus the Thruster revolution began. Fast forward to circa 2005 and the thought is/was that three is not better than four, they're just different. Thus depending on surf style, surfers will bicker over which is better when in all reality we all want a Quad in our quiver now. So, if you have a Quad Futures Fins is there for you, designing a Quad line that was coming down the pipes long before Quads were cool. (again) So here we are and Futures Fins has us saying, "Welcome back Quad!"


Futures Fins Alpha Controller Quad
The Futures Fins Controller Quad is a large size quad set with a ride number of 2.9 and ideal for performance retro quads, or any wide tail fish quads. The Vector 2 low aspect front fins and high aspect Futures tow foil rear fins allow the Controller Quad to deliver the perfect balance. The Controller Quad’s fiberglass material, V2 foil and large surface area create both maximum drive and control while the fin will have a skatey feel in smaller conditions. Whether you're fishing at your local break or surfing that high performance line at J-Bay, the name says it all. With the Futures Fins Controller Quad you're in Control!

Futures Fins Alpha
Futures Fins Alpha fins are made with a special composite designed with the help of 3M. It's carbon and air infused, and it's super lightweight. Made in Huntington Beach, CA these fins give a balanced ride number making them a great choice to provide spring around those sections but still maintaining hold and predictability. These fins also feature 3D flow texture which helps decrease drag and fin hum. This works by controlling the separation pattern and influences the boundary layer to reduce the drag, resulting in a nice balance in speed and hold.
