The needessentials Hand Foiled Fibreglass Quad Fins are designed in conjunction with world class freesurfer Laurie Towner to be the best possible all round quad fin set up. Sold as a set of two fins and designed to be paired with your existing front thruster fins to provide a quad option. These individually hand-foiled fibreglass fins are superior to moulded fins as they provide far more speed, drive and hold due to the increased rigidity of the flex pattern - rigid at the base for speed and drive then tapered towards the tip to provide release and spring.
The needessentials 50/50 Foil Rear Quad Fin template is designed with a symmetrical curve on both sides of the fin to create a smoother feel while maintaining increased stability and control. The 50/50 Foil performs best in bigger more powerful waves and allows you to push hard through your turns. These 50/50 Foil Rear Quad Fins will work with standard needessentials thruster side fins in the front fin boxes.
Specifications: Height 110mm , Base 105mm, Foil 50/50.
The needESSENTIALS 80/20 Foil Rear Quad Fin template is designed to allow smooth rail to rail transitions while still offering bite and drive through turns. The 80/20 Foil tends to work best in small wave grovel boards and allows you to generate maximum speed when surfing beach breaks. These 80/20 Foil Rear Quad Fins will work with standard needessentials thruster side fins in the front fin boxes.
Specifications: Height 110mm, Base 105mm, Foil 50/50.
“I've always loved the drive and flex hand foiled fibreglass fins provide. The fibreglass maintains a great flex when drawing out turns, but still releases quickly in the pocket. I've designed this set to be the perfect all rounder fin in a variety of conditions… from 2ft to 30ft ! This template is my go-to in all my boards from 5’9” to 10’0.” Laurie Towner
