Big Fins vs. Small Fins
We have two new fin options for the R-Series—or any quad-finned surfboard for that matter.
Why would we simultaneously offer both bigger and smaller fins for the same board than the fins we currently recommend?
Advantage of bigger fins: more drive.
As you pump your surfboard to generate speed, you are side-loading the fins with energy that creates forward speed. With the Alpha Controller fins, you have more of that effortless speed generating that you would expect from a keel fish.
Advantage of smaller fins: slide more.
I have been fairly vocal recently about my love for this fin arrangement. This surf approach requires you to keep a lower center of gravity, and find the right spot on the wave to maximize your speed potential.
Instead of a finless-specific board, these finlettes allow for a "when the mood strikes" semi-finless approach that will certainly put a large smile on your face.
