Size depth: 116mm / 4,57 inch

Thrusters, you know, those things that cost at least 75 dollars if you buy them from the ‘twin tab’ or ‘single tab’ guys. That setup that comes times three so you can surf like the Pro whose tropical trips you are indirectly paying for. Those fins that changed the game back in the 80’s. Well now you can make them yourself and they will fit your ‘twintab’ thingies. It will cost you around 5 dollars in material if you own a 3dprinter, a bit more if someone else prints them for you. And you know what? They come in all colors of the rainbow too, full customization is now possible. They have a pro-core performance unobtanium structure that let’s you destroy every wave out there, dude! Or is it just the same old setup and design since the 80’s that adds a little balance and drive to your surfing? We think the latter. For real though, if you print these files and go for low infill you will get the coolest honeycomb structure you can imagine. You will learn about ‘infill’ from your geeky friends that own a 3dprinter. Add some glassing and you will be sweet as a nut. Now go, my young apprentice and try something new for once! You really do not need fins that cost more than 75 dollars.

– When choosing filament (the stuff that your fin will be made of) you have several options. We highly suggest that you choose a very tough filament that is either carbon reinforced (Colorfabb XT-CF20 for example) or has some other claim that makes it tough and stiff. You can also use Regular Plastics like PLA or ABS for your print. The big advantage is that you can choose any color you like. We do recommend that you do some glassing to add stiffness to the fin. We set out to create a fin that can be surfed straight from the printer and we believe that you will be fine with regular PLA or ABS, but still, there might be some f*ck ups in flex patterns/stuff breaking.
– When printing we recommend a 90% infill. Whatever material you chose to use. Our extensive research has shown that this is better than 100% infill, which may sound counter intuitive at first

    hey really nice work, however you should put something for the fins plug.People who doenst know how to use well the printer machine may not be able to print it because its not touching the plate and the ink falls by itself. Pretty nice work though

    Great work guys! Thanks for sharing your work.
    I´m starting to print some fins exploring materials like polycarbonate and carbon fiber mixed with PLA and ABS.
    Let´s see what happens…

    Thanks and keep the nice work!
