True Ames Surf Fins New Video: Hexcore System Fins for FCS and Futures Fins Compatible July 20 2012

 

Here is a quick clip that showcases our line of Hexcore System Fins. These ultra light fins are available in FCS compatible and Futures Compatible. We use the Resin Transfer Method that allows us to construct a composite fin, inside which hexagonal pieces of lightweight coremat displace fiberglass and resin. The result is a fin that is up to 25% lighter than a normal fiberglass fin, yet retains the same positive flex and amazing drive! Whether you are surfing small beach breaks or solid reef breaks, we've got you covered with a wide variety of fins to fit your board and type of surfing.


FINS, FINS, FINS..... February 16 2011

Just a few of our selection here at True Ames Check out the site for our full selection and latest products. This morning, under the variable clouds of a thousand fractions of sky, perched on the dented hoods of cars domestic to a hundred countries, we are looking at the same waves we looked at yesterday. As the other 99.9% of surfers, we’ve cheated, become infidels to the savagely nomadic wavesledder wed to our minds long ago. We’ve instead become frontiersman of our own backyards, cartographers to an infinity of patterns across the wave faces we know best. For over 30 years at True Ames, we’ve forged enterprise and folk science from our desire to redesign these lines in as many languages as we can learn. Faster. Stronger. Lighter. Stranger. Each member of our little family of designs is an opportunity for reinventing our turns and reliving old ones, this time with a little magic, and next time with a little more. Enjoy.
