F8 fin series  CNC fin Range


This is the latest series is all about High Performance surfing!! The F8 is loosely based on the DV9 design but with the added tip extension. Most of the designs in this series feature a slight flip in the tip as well, called the FLIPTWO.

This Fin range is a high-performance fin that handles various conditions. It features our PHAT FOILS and HOLOFOILS, with the FLIPTWO allowing for more efficient HOLOFOILS. In addition, extending the tip gives the fin a lot more feel later into the turn while also providing a better pivot point.

The main design of this fin is more wing-like than the typical dolphin fin and allows the fin to be very efficient at generating lift and thereby creating forward momentum.

Due to how the FLIPTWO is implemented, the fin profile features a distinctive taper from the base to the transition to the flip. The FLIPTWO is, in turn, a lot thinner than our first-generation flips. We are minimizing the risks of cavitation. There is also a slight hollowing of the inside face of the flip to give it a little more bite during a turn.

The F8 centre fin design features even more prominent tips to provide greater holding power and feel in the water. In addition, the centre fin has very distinctive foils that differentiate between the Body and blade of the fin.
