THRUSTER – SMALL
The F4 Control Series is a small Speed Control fin with a Ride Number of 1.5. The solid fiberglass construction features a single layer of uni-directional carbon fiber for weight reduction and response. It is the stiffest, most durable version of the popular F4 template and is ideal for stability in powerful surf with additional durability at reef breaks.
The Control Series is an upgrade to our fiberglass line. Now featuring a layer of uni-carbon strips which give them a much more dynamic response. This addition also allowed us to give these fins a thinner profile. This translates to a lighter-weight fin and a decrease in drag without sacrificing the durability or control you’d expect from a fiberglass fin. The Control Series is also a great addition to our Ride Number story, contrasting with Speed Generating fins such as Blackstix or the Generation Series. These fins will fit into the 1 to 3 Ride Number range as the most Speed Controlling options in our line. Make sure to have a set of these in your fin quiver for powerful conditions.
REDUCED WEIGHT & DRAG
With a solid material like fiberglass, the only way to reduce weight is to reduce mass. We reduced the thickness of these fins by 5% which results in a lighter fin with less drag. Now you’re flying!
STRENGTH & RESILIENCY
After thinning out the profile, we were left with a fin that was too flexible. To compensate, we added in a layer of uni-carbon which provides all the stiffness you’d expect from a fiberglass fin with an added bonus of resiliency.
FIBERGLASS CAN TAKE A BEATING!
When you’re riding in shallow waters or paddling across the reef, your fins might take a hit. Luckily, Fiberglass will stand the test of time! Simply sand away any ding, scratch or imperfection and they’re good as new!
Built For Power!
IDEAL FOR POWERFUL CONDITIONS
When you’re taking off late and stalling, controlling your speed is everything. The Control Series was built for just that… hence the name. If you’re planning to come face to face with heavy conditions, make sure to have these fins in your arsenal.
