Big Fins vs. Small Fins

Big Fins vs. Small Fins

We have two new fin options for the R-Series—or any quad-finned surfboard for that matter. 

The Controllers (pictured left) are noticeably larger than the F6's, and the Finlettes (pictured right) are noticeably smaller. 

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.
