The FIN System™ is a revolutionary Patented new upgrade for the Surf Adapter that allows riders to alter the pivot angle of their Surf Adapter. This Kit can be added to any existing Skateboard setup. 

The FINs can be added in 2 configurations, in addition to a standard 150° Surf Adapter configuration. One configuration is Super Carve 145° and the other is Mega Pump 155°. Super Carve gives you a more responsive turning experience, and lets you carve very tight maneuvers in tight spaces. Mega Pump is a lighter feeling and allows you to efficiently drive the board with small pumps over long distances. 

We are very excited to be offering this system to our riders! We hope that you find the FIN System as transformative and fun as the Surf Adapter itself!

In one word: VERSATILITY

For me FIN SYSTEM is a revolutionary innovation and a successful evolution of the Waterborne Surf Adapter (of which I consider myself a fan and supporter). If I could define its virtues in a single word, I would say VERSATILITY, since with this ingenious system two lines ("Mega Pump" and "Super Carve") are opened for countless configurations to suit the rider, from a cruiser to nimbly traverse the city or have a supercar, a true and vertiginous "hot-rod".

Live in Lanzarote, Canary Islands (Spain) and received my system last tuesday (october 18) mounted on a Waterborne TAURUS deck; I've configured it as a "Mega Pump" by putting on 76mm Bigfoot Mountain Cruiser wheels, crossing streets in the city of Arrecife (in much worse condition than the idyllic avenues seen in the videos "Made in California" ;) ). On the other hand I've also configured it in "Super Carve" with 62mm Waterborne "Living Water" wheels that have allowed me to "risk my skin" carving from "rail to rail".

Finally, declare myself totally in favor of the spirit of Waterborne, bringing surfskate as many enthusiasts as possible with a universal tool, low cost and without secrets or threats of "losing warranty" if you want to find out how your system works. I feel like that's true democracy, "Surfskate to the people"... GO AHEAD GUYS!!!

FIN System

Set your FINs to Super Carve for an increased responsiveness and high performance. Super Carve is a very lively setting that emphasizes how tightly the Surf Adapter can turn within a space, and carve it to pieces!

Remove your FINs to utilize the Standard Surf Adapter Geometry. This geometry was something that we created with the goal of achieving the most universal surf style performane for riders across the world. It's still as fun as ever to ride the Standard setting!

Set your FINs to Mega Pump for a dialed back high performance cruising feel. The Surf Adapter won't lean as deeply into turns, and the flatter deck angle allows you to gently pump this board up to high speeds with minimal exertion, and maximal forward propultion. It can still carve with a distinctly Waterborne fluidity.

What are FINs?

FINs snap into the Surf Adapter's turck holding Pivot arm. The effectively change the angle that the arm rotates on, and in turn changes the way that the wheels move as you press on your rails. This is what gives you a totally new feeling to experience.

DESIGN INSIGHT

The Surf Adapter is an extremely robust design that has been mounted onto everything from 12 inch skateboards to 12 foot long skateboards! It has been paired with every truck under the sun, and riden by people on all 7 continets. We believe that the Surf Adapter's design language, aids in it's mission for universal appeal. This rebust design lan guage is why the FIN System works. Had we taken a more common approach, had we coppied an existign design, or had we put any less consideration, we would not have been able to add these clever little wedges to the Surf Adaper without significant further modification. It is only becuase we found the best solution, the bushing, that we can change the pivot angle and still have the same functionality and resilience.
