True Ames Skip Frye Flex 6″ to 9.25″ Fins

The Skip Frye Flex longboard fin!  Stiffer than the L-Flex and straighter than the Norm, the Skip Frye Flex is a judicious flex fin choice, offering hold and vigour to a variety of eggs and logs. What makes this flex fin unique is that it is a perfect compliment to one of the greatest surfboard craftsmen… period. Skip designed these fins to work with his ultra sensitive boards in the mid 70’s. They excel when used in thinner, planing type boards. However, they also can be used in a broad range of equipment… such as 2+1 centre fins for performance longboarding. See more below…

Description

The Skip Frye Flex longboard fin!  Another long time hero of ours! Great bloke. Captivated by the knee-based carves of Greenough, Skip Frye was among the first So-Cal heads to experiment with reduced fin areas and flex. What makes this flex fin unique is that it is a perfect compliment to one of the greatest surfboard craftsmen… period. Skip designed these fins to work with his ultra sensitive boards in the mid 70’s. They excel when used in thinner, planing type boards. However, they also can be used in a broad range of equipment… such as 2+1 centre fins for performance longboarding.  The Volan fins are fine tuned with a precision foil as well as proper flex. They are handmade in the True Ames factory and go through the strictest quality control. Fins made with Volan fiberglass and properly aligned for optimal weave orientation have very high performance flex characteristics — with the flex coming more from the body of the fin rather than just at the tip.

Available in Volan as an 8.5″ only. (Special Order)
