As we searched the market for the best fin boxes and fins we came to the conclusion that we need to develop our own. With in house developed carbon made fin boxes, we achieved a much stronger and lighter solution that plays a crucial role in multi fin boards. We always suggest the number of fin boxes for every model but you can choose yourself the solution that works best for you. Depending on the model and size of the board we suggest a certain type of fin box (slot box, US box, power box, or tuttle box), but you can choose your preference.
usually comes with 3 boxes. This shape works great also in quad fin setup – so you can order a version with 4 or 5 boxes and combine different setups.
We produce different types of G10 fins. Our default option for a THRUSTER:
Central: Central fin type (09). Our suggestion: slot box up to 200 mm, US box up to 240 mm, for bigger we suggest power box.
Front side: medium type fins (02) with slot box,
but you can also choose hard (06) – more early planning/speed oriented,
or soft (04) – down the line oriented or asymmetric (505) type – for tighter turning.
Each product is good only as its weakest part. For this reason, we take a lot of effort to take care of every possible detail.
foam comes from a factory that is only 3 km away from our workshop. Together we developed and tested a special EPS foam that has the best characteristics for a windsurfing/SUP/paddle board. Due to the short travel distance of this voluminous, we are proud that we make a smaller negative impact on the nature that makes windsurfing a special sport.
We use highest grade divinycell foams in different density and thickness.
FOOT-STRAPS AND SCREWS
We make use of our own developed inox inserts that come with all of our boards. Over the years this system has proven to be 100% reliable and you won’t ever experience a broken screw or insert.
We use 4 screws per strap on the front and back foot-straps. We usually recommend 2 insert positions for back and front. More inserts are possible but usually not needed. Regular stance on a wave board is 42,5/45/47,5 cm, but all other options are possible.
Hint: For smaller riders, we suggest 40/42,5/45 cm. For taller riders, we suggest 45/47,5/50 cm.
You can also choose only one position as it saves some weight. And most people prefer just one foot-strap position anyway.
The board comes equipped with soft, durable and adjustable Flikka foot-straps. One important advantage of our custom boards is the flexibility to choose your own foot strap width. Regular is 15cm, but you can order a smaller or larger width.
You can choose white or black footpads with the option to have built in hell bumpers. There is also the option to choose white with tail-kick (no hell bumpers).
You can choose between a regular valve screw or a Gore-Tex valve. Both options work fine and it is up to your preference what your board will have. Gore-Tex valve lets air in and out all the time (but not water), so the pressure is always optimal.
