The EA Quad was designed by master Hawaiian shaper, Eric Arakawa, to provide hold in fast, heavy, barreling waves. The Control Series construction of fiberglass and uni-carbon is stiff and durable, making them ideal for controlling speed in heavy conditions. This setup is a go-to fin for chargers like Reef McIntosh during serious Backdoor days. These fins fit into the 1 - 3 Ride Number range as the most Speed Controlling options in our line.

Flat foiled fins break free sooner, and are better at controlling speed. Often surfers prefer them in fast powerful surf where they do not need to create additional speed. If you have muscle memory from riding glass-ons, flat foiled fins will feel the closest.
