PIVOT SURF FINS

SURFBOARD FINS FOR BETTER TURNS

The PIVOT surf fins are for turning easier on your surfboard. The PIVOT fins are for the surfer whose board feels stiff and has a hard time doing turns. This could be due to the board´s shape, or the little angle of the fin plugs, or when the surf is not so good.

PIVOT surfing fins are made to have FUN and to go VERTICAL on the face of the wave.

Due to their special shape the PIVOT fins give more lift to your surfboard. They are recommended to use in small surf (<6 ft or 2 meter waves)

Our shapers and engineers have work together to choose the best materials for this shape. Like the "BeachPROs", they have a Honeycomb Core to keep a light weight, and offer the right amount of flex to the surfboard fins

 

 

NANO CARBON FIBER FINS

Let nanotechnology materials work for you. Adding to the super light honeycomb core nanocarbon materials in the right places will give your surf fins better performance in general terms.
Carbon fiber will add extra stiffness for controlling the board better in bigger or stronger type of waves, the tips of the fins will be flexing while the base holds most of the power created. Adding carbon 12K fiber in the base of your fins will generate more speed when you come out of a turn and feel the surfboard more precise when turning it.
Sizes and fin specs have been designed by our of engeneers, shapers and riders to be simple designs that work in all around conditions for everyone. Then there are different sizes depending on your weight, sometimes you also may want to play with bigger fin size for bigger waves.

NANO CARBON MATERIAL TECHNOLOGY

First, What is Carbon Fiber

Carbon Fiber, not surprisingly, is made of carbon crystals aligned in a long axis. These honeycomb shaped crystals organize themselves in long flattened ribbons. This crystal alignment makes the ribbon strong in the long axis. In turn these ribbons align themselves within fibers. The fiber shape is the original shape of the material (its precursor) used to produce the Carbon Fiber.  These fibers (containing flat ribbons of carbon crystals) in turn are bundled by the manufacturer in thicker fibres and are woven into carbon cloth, made into felt, twisted or bundled without twisting. This is referred to as Roving. Carbon fiber is also offered as chopped strands and powder.

 

Carbon Fiber Properties, What's Not to Love!!

High Strength to weight ratio: Strength of a material is the force per unit area at failure, divided by its density. Any material that is strong AND light has a favourable Strength/Weight ratio. Materials such as Aluminium, titanium, magnesium, Carbon. Note that strength and rigidity are different properties, strength is resistance to breaking, rigidity is resistance to bending or stretching.
Because of the way the crystals of carbon fibre orient in long flat ribbon or narrow sheets of honeycomb crystals, the strength is higher running lengthwise than across the fibre. That is why designers of carbon fibre objects specify the direction the fibre should be laid to maximize strength and rigidity in a specific direction. The fibre being aligned with the direction of greatest stress.

Pan based precursor carbon fibre has higher strength than pitch based carbon fibre which has higher stiffness.
    
Rigidity: Rigidity or stiffness of a material is measured by its Young Modulus and measures how much a material deflects under stress. Carbon fiber reinforced plastic is over 4 times stiffer than Glass reinforced plastic, almost 20 times more than pine, 2.5 times greater than aluminium.

Remember stress is force, strain is deflection such as bending or stretching 

 

Corrosion resistance: carbon fiber itself do not deteriorate.


Fatigue Resistance: Resistance to Fatigue in Carbon Fiber Composites is good. Damage in tensile fatigue is seen as reduction in stiffness with larger numbers of stress cycles, (unless the temperature is high).
Test have shown that failure is unlikely to be a problem when cyclic stresses coincide with the fiber orientation. Carbon fiber is superior to E glass in fatigue and static strength as well as stiffness.

 

Good tensile strength but Brittle: Tensile strength or ultimate strength, is the maximum stress that a material can withstand while being stretched or pulled before necking, or failing. Necking is when the sample cross-section starts to significantly contract. If you take a strip of plastic bag, it will stretch and at one point will start getting narrow. This is necking. Tensile Strength is measured in Force per Unit area. Brittle materials such as carbon fiber does not always fail at the same stress level because of internal flaws. They fail at small strains. (in other words there is not a lot of bending or stretching before catastrophic failure)

 

Weibull modulus of brittle materials

Testing involves taking a sample with a fixed cross-section area, and then pulling it gradually increasing the force until the sample changes shape or breaks. Fibers, such as carbon fibers, being only 2/10,000th of an inch in diameter, are made into composites of appropriate shapes in order to test.

Requires specialized experience and equipment to use: In order to maximize Carbon Fiber Characteristics, a relatively high level of technical excellence must be achieved. Imperfections and air bubbles can significantly affect performance.

Typically, autoclaves, or vacuum equipment is required. Moulds and mandrels are major expenses as well. The success of any amateur carbon fiber construction will be closely linked to the skill and care taken.

BEACHPRO HONEYCOMB SURFBOARD FINS

The BeachPro honeycomb core fins are the basic fins a surfer must have. Due to the material properties (lightness, stiffness and flexibility ratios) you will get so much speed out of your turns that you will be able to show all your best maneuvers.
They are super light, and excellent to get your board up in the air throw out you best tail slides.

You will feel the board really fast out of the turns (because their flex gives you more Drive) but you will feel your board loose enough to air those lips or throw your tail around.

 

Material used: Fiberglass with a honeycomb core.

Plastics fins just don't cut it.
It is proven that plastic fins are not good for surfing. They are only good for beginners on their first 2-3 weeks because they are more forgiving on the mistakes, and make the surfboard more loose on the turns, less dangerous and less harmful. So if you really want to improve your surfing, take note of what everybody is doing, and get yourself a decent set of fins. You will surf improve your surfing.

BEST SURFBOARD FINSMerged Combined Merged viewbook 2

Surf fins are really important for the performance of our surfboard. There is no use of riding our brand new surfboard with fins that are not good. Fins go in the water and are really important in the hydrodynamics and reaction of the board when you ride. Good fins will give you more speed, the grip you need, and turn faster. Giving you more control of your surfboard.

Try them Be Noticed Surf Different
For the price of 1 fin set I get 2 or 3 fin sets with the same quality fins. This is awesome, now I have different set of fins: one for the beach with lighter fins, for faster turns, aerials..., and another for those bigger days when I need more carving power and more grip.
