"These are my go-to Futures quads. With a bamboo base and honeycomb tip, they have a perfect balance of control and drive. They're loose, but predictable. For the thicker, wider tail Simmons/hybrid type boards that I tend to ride, there's no better Medium quad. FYI - I'm 5'9, 165lbs. They hold rail in bigger surf and generate speed well. Plus, they just look cool!"
Co-designed with one of the world's best free surfers, this V2 quad set was created for high performance surfing. These fins are made with renewable bamboo, which provides a lively flex pattern, and are wrapped in symbolic art provided by Rasta. A medium sized template that performs in a variety of conditions. The Quad set up with a medium base and tip allow you to generate more drive and stay on rail.
A portion of the proceed from sales of the Rasta Quad will be donated to the Dave's non-profit organization, Surfers For Cetaceans.

Futures' Dave Rastovich Quad marks the second signature release from Dave, following his Sea Shepard Keel twin-fin from 2010, and expands our ever-growing range of non-thruster sets, further evolving our team's experiences.
Rasta, as he’s affectionately known, hails from the Gold Coast of Australia, but now spends most of his time an hour south, surfing the points around Byron Bay. He spent the better part of 2011 fine-tuning his new fins on trips to Indo, Tahiti and at home in Oz.
"To me personally, they feel perfect. I’m stoked to have a set like this with the flex, the outline and the materials that make it a really alive, sparky set of quads. The template we came up with is of course a hybrid of designs, influenced by other fins that are out there in the world. I wanted something that had a little less tip and a bit more upright and had a little more flex in some ways."
The Rasta Quad features a layer of Bamboo at the base of the fin, and a very Rasta-esque geometric pattern graphic.
"Incorporating bamboo into the base of the fin is a really good feeling. It’s stiffened it up, but the tip still has a bit of twang. Which is a good balance." Dave also provided the artwork, "I love sacred geometry and patterns. The pattern that is on the fin is just one of those. It’s a linked up pattern, and just like with the fin and how we designed it, it’s interconnected, will all other fins done before it, because they all influence each other."
A percentage of the proceeds from sale of the Rasta Quad will be given to Dave’s foundation Surfers For Cetaceans, in support of his passion for the ocean and its inhabitants.
