SPRINGY. FLUID. RESPONSIVE.
Enhance your surfing experience with Futures Blackstix fins. Designed to excel in a variety of
wave conditions, these fins are specially crafted to benefit surfers when the waves are small and mushy.
Featuring a V2 inside foil, these fins generate and maintain speed throughout turns, ensuring you
stay in the sweet spot even in less-than-ideal wave conditions. The precision carbon and fiberglass
matrix construction, paired with specialized epoxy resin, results in a lightweight fin with incredible
response, making your board feel more lively and responsive.
Upgrade your surfboard and elevate your surfing experience with Futures Blackstix fins. Take on
any wave conditions with confidence and enjoy the thrill of riding even the smallest and mushiest waves.
We’ve added two layers of unidirectional carbon to the base of the fins, at an angle that controls how the tip of the fin bends and rotates. This makes Blackstix 3.0 hold better through power turns while feeling just as springy as Blackstix 2.0.
Future’s revolution in fin and foil design. The inside surface of the fin is concave at
the base and transitions to a flat surface at the tip of the fin, improving how water
flows across fin. The V2 foil creates an effortless feeling rail-to-rail so you can keep
speed while setting up big maneuvers down the line, even when the waves you’re
surfing lack power.
Carbon & Fiberglass Matrix
Our proprietary matrix construction featuring precision shaped carbon fiber
and fiberglass combined with a lightweight core is engineered to provide a highly
responsive flex pattern. This gives a snappy feel to your board and enables the
unique liveliness that only Blackstix can provide.
To add one more layer of performance to the Blackstix, we use a proprietary
epoxy resin that is lighter, tougher & more responsive than polyester resin.
These features all play a role in making the Blackstix the liveliest & fastest
fins in the world. As a bonus, epoxy emits 50-75% fewer VOCs (volatile
organic compounds) than polyester resin, which means a decrease in harmful
chemicals in our environment.
"I developed this fin with Futures and Haydenshapes. It took nearly five years to
get to this point and I'm stoked with the final outcome. The fin's base is wider to
provide plenty of baseline drive to any board. The template is slightly drawn back,
with less area in the tip to provide a crisp release. The Blackstix 3.0 construction and the
V2 foil power the fin up through turns giving a continuous speed generating feel."
