Exclusive and limited to just 25 sets, the case study kit comprises three timeless examples of shaper-spec’d fins.

Drive and flow never looked so good.

A one-off, display-boxed presentation, this kit is a case study designed to arm a surfer with an array of proven options for traditional point surfing in the 2- to 6-foot range. The three included fins are shipped in a custom, hand-numbered wooden box. There are nested, padded storage slots for the fins when they’re not actively deployed filleting your chosen headland.

True Ames Surfers Journal Pointbreak Collaboration Box Set

Built in our shop here in Goleta, CA with a special two color panel per design, premium foil, and TSJ x True Ames limited edition logo.

The Skip Frye
Skip Frye single-fins are straightforward, have clean lines, minimal rake, and classic curves—all components that lend themselves to fluid trim, low drag, and graceful surfing. Minimalistic and pure, Skip’s fins do best in a supporting role for surfboards relying on pinched rails to do the heavy lifting.

The Greenough 4-A
The Greenough 4-A has become a timeless staple, as well as the most popular single-fin ever made. A truly well-balanced fin, the 4-A’s full base tapering to a moderately flexible tip makes it one of the most versatile and performance oriented single-fins available.

The Yater Apocalypse
A template that was as relevant 50 years ago as it is today, the design inherently compliments so many aspects of longboarding. The fin provides plenty of hold, pivot, and drive—truly the perfect conception of an exceptional longboard fin.
