Futures Fins Alpha Series 5-Fin (F4, F6, F8)


Futures Fins classic series is a complete line of classic fin designs, fused with the latest technology. Some of Futures Fins top team riders swear by these fins and work with them constantly to dial-in their templates and foils. The new F series from Futures contains the F2, F4, F6, and F8. These fins are balanced templates that are designed to work for all surfers in all conditions. The solid base directly transfers power, while the tip is still flexible and resilient allowing it to bend and load up.

Futures Fins Alpha 5-Fin
Futures Fins Alpha 5-Fin is 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.
