“Andy thought that the other boys always had something better than him - Especially Parko. When he tried Occy fins he found them drivey but not enough release. When he tried Parko’s fins he loved them but wanted more drive. From this we refined the combination into what is now the AI forever template - A slightly raked back fin like Occy’s but with the release of Parko’s refined tip. - Claimed them as the best fins he ever rode.
I spent a lot of my life surfing, shaping and traveling with Andy and he was one of the most all-time people I have had the privilege of knowing. He will always be a part of my life and am honored to help and contribute to his legacy being remembered - forever." "Missed but never forgotten." JS.
AI-2.1 is the larger of the two templates. It is recommended for surfers between 65-85 kg or 145-185 lbs as the everyday fin for most conditions.
The AI-2.0 and 2.1 are not only both enhanced with CARBOTUNE construction but the addition of an even stiffer and stronger carbon base. This large weave, 12K carbon works especially well with this new template to provide the perfect balance of flex, drive and release. Both sizes are developed to replicate the same characteristics in their weight category.
Carbo Tune is the absolute premium, high performance fin. The KR team have been instrumental in its development, with countless hours of test driving and fine tuning.
Light weight 6 mm Hex Core is the most proven and trusted weight reduction material available delivering the best flex and response.
