Futures Intros the Jordy Smith Signature Fin

Futures Fins designs and manufactures performance foilcore fin systems for all types of surfing. The core values of Futures team are experimentation, innovation, and out-of-the-box thinking and their fin systems are used by many elite riders all over the world.

The company is proud to announce the release of the new Jordy Smith Signature Fin. This is the first fin designed by Jordy, who has extensive knowledge in this industry since he grew up in his dad’s surfboard factory and he is a rider oriented towards high performance surfing in all conditions. The new fin features a wider base and a thinner tip, and it is shaped with the idea of delivering the ultimate performance out on the waves.

Here’s what Jordy says about his involvement in fin design and shaping industry: “I used to lay up the fins in the shop. I’ve worked on thousands of boards, and have had a lot of experience with fin placement, tow angles, cants and templates. When I signed with Futures, they came on board and said we’re going to make you your own fin, and I was super excited. […]I was surfing New Pier, my homebreak, and the board just felt so under my feet. It felt super alive. I was pushing as hard as I could and at the same time when I wanted to release, I could. It was mid-way through this year that I really found the fin, and I was just like this is really what I want for my surfing.”

The new Jordy Smith Signature Fin by Futures is available in specialty stores in large size. Small and medium sized models of the fin will be available starting with spring 2013.
