New Stand Up Paddle - Shallow water / touring fin November 05 2009SUP Shallow Water / Touring ( SWT ) [caption id="attachment_195" align="alignleft" width="425" caption="Stand Up Paddle - Shallow water fin"][/caption] These fins were designed to be used primarily as a single center fin. #1 Best for areas that have shallow water and or any kind of floating grass/kelp. Effortlessly paddle through thick mats of grass. Transition the shallows of your beach without hitting bottom. Great near shore touring ability. #2 Paddle a course with less effort due to excellent tracking from this design. Glide is enhanced so less side-to-side paddle exchanging is needed. A thin foil section along with a surface piercing leading edge makes this fin fast on all angles. You will find this design to be faster, with less drag than the fin that came stock with your board. A great upgrade fin that has many uses. The SWT is a must have!! Prices Start at $61.00
Everybody Loves Rincon October 22 2009Here is a clip with Kelly Slater, Yadin Nicol + some of the local boys ripping at Rincon from seasons past. With NW swells beginning to march down the coast of California, we are starting to see waves at Rincon and of course with the usual crowds of 5 guys to a wave sometimes... The good thing is that the water quality has cleared up a bit since the rain last week. Looks like more surf on the way with a moderate El Nino winter weather pattern prediction. Seems like the summer flatness has passed as we are moving onward into Fall and anticipating the winter months to get our fill of waves. Be prepared for the surf this season and make sure you have a few solid sets of fins...To purchase fins for your shortboard or longboard go to true ames online store.

Greenough Classic Footage 1969 September 24 2009[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3u8mXGdOQo&feature=related] Amidst his wind generators, blue ocean boats, and camera housings, George Greenough had enough energy to revolutionize fin design. A seed of the revolution, the 4-A has a narrow, flexible tip that enhances maneuverability and a flared base for increased stability and drive -- an ideal combination for the point surf George fancied. Check out our selection of George Greenough surf fins.
