NOW WITH NETPLUS
THE FIRST SURF FINS MADE FROM RECYCLED FISHING NETS.
Made in Huntington Beach, California, the Alpha product line is made by incorporating Bureo’s NetPlus recycled fishing nets with Futures’ compound 6 Carbon and Air infused technology. NetPlus material is sourced from Bureo’s fishing net recycling program in Chile, which provides collection points to keep plastic fishing nets out of our oceans. Preventing harmful materials from entering the ocean, their program protects wildlife and supports local fishing communities through financial incentives.
Our Alpha product line is molded carbon fiber that delivers every bit of performance you’d expect from an upgraded fin at a Balanced Ride Number. Incredibly lightweight and resilient, Alpha is the first of its kind; created using one-of-a-kind materials and new technologies developed by Futures.
CARBON & AIR INFUSED
We have developed a brand new material blend that is lighter than Honeycomb
and the next step in innovation for Futures. Infused with the resiliency of carbon
fiber and the lightness of air, this is the most advanced injection fin material
ever created. Working with the talented team at 3M, we were able to combine
two key features that make our exclusive material so impressive.
LIGHTWEIGHT & RESILIENT
First, we infused carbon fiber which has a higher strength to weight
ratio than fiberglass. By replacing fiberglass with carbon fiber, the
Alpha line is more lightweight and resilient than your standard fiberglass
or plastic injection fins.
LIGHTWEIGHT & STRONG
Second, we infused air. Yes, air! With our friends at 3M, we were
able to develop a one-of-a-kind composite material that creates air pockets
in the fin to reduce weight without sacrificing structural integrity.
STEEL MOLDS MADE IN-HOUSE
At Futures, we’re professional mold makers. Have been since day
one. We designed, cut, and polished molds for the Alpha line at our
headquarters in Huntington Beach. This level of involvement with our
product is what allows us to push beyond the boundaries of what’s expected
from your surf equipment.
RELIABLE AND FAMILIAR
The Flat Foil is the most available foil in the Futures line and is a
very reliable option for all conditions. You will find that they work especially
well when making late drops or stalling for the barrel are your primary
concern because of their controlled and stable feel.
