Hanalei WS2 Quad Fin Set Futures Base
The WS2 series are a second generation version of our split keel design.
This series is made up of only two designs - a front fin WS2-400F and a back fin WS2-475. The front fin features a flipped tip for better performance and transition speed. Both fins feature extensive hollow foils on the inside faces, again geared towards improved performance.
These fins can be used in a wide range of boards but are especially well suited to fish-style boards. When placed correctly these fins can provide an enhanced twin fin feel but without the twitchiness of the typical twin fin.
The design of these split keels depends for the best performance on the fins being placed as close together as possible. By this we mean the fore-n-aft placement. Because the fins are essentially a keel fin that has been split into two separate fins their functionality depends on a tight cluster.
However, this setup can still work really well in fin setups that are more spread out, they are just not as optimal as a tight cluster. These two different templates can also be used separately, although the design was intended to be used as a quad setup.
