For a while now we’ve been encouraging people to try riding their thrusters with a twin + stabilizer setup.
Tends to work well for many shapes; particularly swallow tails and fishy hybrids. Sometimes though, the fin box placement isn’t quite right for twins. Twin boxes are generally placed a bit farther back than those of thruster side fins, so it doesn’t always translate perfectly.
To address this we decided to do a run of Kraken Twins set back 3/4” on the base. This allows you to convert your thruster to a twin + Stabilizer (or even straight Twin setup for some boards). They’ve worked great for us and feedback so far has been excellent. They can also be used in boards designed for twins for anyone wanting a little more hold and drawn out turns.
We’re calling these the Convertible Krakens. We opted to go with the Kraken template as it’s the most high performance, upright twin template we offer. The kraken template has a fairly wide base, refined tip and is relatively upright which means they won’t fight you, despite having a surface area of 19.57 square inches. One of our favorite templates; so it’s cool to be able to offer you a way to surf them in a wider range of boards.
We recommend them with the stabilizer, especially for more classic thrusters that are designed around the fluid dynamics of three fins.
NVS Apex Series Fins
NVS Apex G10 Solid Fiberglass Fins: The Pinnacle of Performance.
What makes NVS Apex G10 solid fiberglass fins the best in the world?
Better Material: We use G10, an industrial grade fiberglass which is manufactured to the highest quality standard. Made by heating special fibers with epoxy resin under intense pressure in order to make a perfect panel; we?ve eliminated the errors which can occur by using a hand layup. By heating the fibers and resin under pressure we are left with the ideal resin to fiber ratio in order to maximize strength and decrease weight.
Now that each fin contains more fiber we?re able to foil the fin thinner to in order to decrease drag and save even more weight without compromising the structural integrity.
Better Foiling: Along with the thinner foils we use a very specific foil that was derived from a series of NACA foils whose purpose was to increase laminar flow (speed) while decreasing turbulent flow (drag). This translates to a fin that allows for faster/easier generation of speed and has a wider angle of attack, which means you won?t lose as much speed while bottom turning or going through hard cutbacks. Precision machined foiling yields the most accurate foils available on any fin type or construction; why do you think a vast majority of big wave fins are machined, not molded?
The combination of spring from the epoxy infused G10 fiberglass with the hydrodynamic foil allow for easy generation of speed while maintaining control in all conditions.
Better Manufacturing: By using cutting edge CNC machines and precise designs we machine cut each fin in order to have the perfect foil and finish. All NVS fins are designed 100% in house using advanced 3D software.
This is what makes the Apex Series G10 fins the strongest most high performance fins in the world.
Of course performing better than anything on the market isn?t enough for us so we left these with a unique and sexy tree ring finish that is sure to turn heads.
