Santa Barbara, Ca.This video is about my favorite fin by Channel Islands Surfboards called the RTM Tech 1. This is the same fin template as the trusted AM2 in the Honeycomb construction that surfers have been using for years. I use a Large fin 90% of the time even though my weight class has me fitted best for a Medium fin according to the Futures Fins website. A large fin will give me more drive in smaller waves and that's what I am surfing most of the time. This fin suits my type of surfing with it's wide base for maximum drive, great degree of rake for long arcing carves, and the narrow tip for release when I want it. I also like the foam core which makes them really light compared to a traditional fiberglass fin and still have great consistency in my turns. The Futures Fin Ride number system has them at 4.6 so they are solid in my turns and a prefect balance of flex to propel me in and out of turns. Here is what the CI website has to say about them: RESIN TRANSFER MOLDED (RTM) CONSTRUCTION. The Tech 1 honeycomb hexagonal core combined with the Al Merrick template offers a medium flex pattern, making this fin a versatile option for a wide range of surfing abilities and conditions. Unique core reduces resin content and weight. Proprietary fiberglass weave and orientation is designed for maximum response and performance. Versatile high performance option.This item has been viewed 8 times.
