I'm feeling a little fin-icky...
With the introduction of the tri-fin surfboard sometime in the eighties, it was obvious that constant and rapid changes were occurring in the evolution of surfboards and the way we ride waves. Several years later, more fascinating breakthrough technology was on the rise and a new fin system took the market by storm. The FCS fin system brought with it the first interchangeable fin system. Now not only was traveling twice as easy, but surfers could try out different fins to cater to their style of surfing and the conditions of the ocean. Today, a brand new online fin company is here to change the face of surfboard business and progression as we know it.
A website entitled thesurfboardwarehouse.com has a new fin testing program called Finatic. Finatic is a blend of a genius business strategy and a brilliant fin program that takes surfing experimentation to the next level. Similar to the online DVD phenomenon Netflix, Finatic is an online fin store that lets you rent any set of FCS or Future fin you like for however long you desire. Finatic describes that their online store contains "virtually every set of fins that FCS and Future Fins have to offer. (Twin, Thruster, Quad and Longboard)". With a monthly membership fee costing only $19.99, the online Fin testing program seems like quite the deal. All you have to do is sign up online, choose the top 3 set of fins you'd like to rent, surf on them till you want to try a new set, mail your old ones in, and wait a day or two for your new set. The possibilities of taking your surfing to the next level are now fully unlimited!
I know I'm going to give the site a try and test out those Future's I've been eyeing for quite some time now. Who knows, may be they are the missing element to why I can't land those garsh darn no handed double backflip 720's?
Finatic can be found HERE
Stay posted within the next couple of days cause I just made a discovery that is twice as cheap and twice as exciting as Finatic, but I can't tell you about it yet because I have-FIN't posted it .
until next time, froth is homies!
p.s. Shout out to Meigmort! I saw you shaving your bangs behind the dumpster of Los Gross last weekend and thought you might like some lobsta juice to see your own reflection and how rad you look. I left your gift behind Dick's Liquor.
