The new 2013 John John Florence Futures Fin is here! Before going into the performance aspects of this fin, I just want to say that it is one of the sickest fin graphics out there. Each fin has it’s own unique graphic, but as a whole they are truly a work of art. These fins are based off of the F4 TechFlex John John grew up riding, but lately he has outgrown them so he started developing something a bit bigger, and more tailored towards his surf style. The results…a medium sized light weight fin that balances drive and release for optimal control. Check out the 10 point air from this years ASP event in Bali. John John was no doubt riding a prototype of these fins in that contest. After over a year of testing the fin is ready for the public, but the question still remains….are you ready?
Scheduled for release mid 2013 the new FCS 2 Fin System is a fully tool less system that will replace current system. Now you’ll be able to pop your fins in and out on the fly in a matter of few seconds. You would think the fins wouldn’t be as locked in, or pop out while your riding them, but FCS and their team riders have been hard at work testing the new system, and they’re all giving it the thumbs up, calling it the best fin system out there. The system will require special tool less fins to work as a tool free setup, but will still be compatible with older FCS Fins. So if you have a set of fins that is no longer made, you can still throw them in with the new FCS II system, but you’ll have to screw them in.
We’ll have the new FCS 2 Fins for sale on our website as soon as they’re available, so keep checking back, or subscribe to our newsletter at the bottom of this page to get updates on new arrivals.
New from Futures, the Elevon Quad is a revolutionary surf fin made from space age materials that has a price tag to match. Is it all a gimmick? We don’t think so. Over seven years in the making, they’ve got to have come up with something! Watch the video below and decide for yourself.
ěl’ə-vŏn’ – The Elevon has a surface combining lift and control. It took seven years of R&D to come up with the unique 3D surface contours that create an unbelievable amount of lift and drive. Use them on your quad to effortlessly carry you through flat sections and find speed to go vertical where you didn’t know it was possible. A balanced medium sized template designed to perform in a variety of conditions.
Here at Cleanline Surf we have ramped up our selection of True Ames Fins in the last month. Currently we are stocking mostly longboard fins, but we are planning on getting in a larger selection of fins, including Thrusters, and Quads, in the future so check back soon, and don’t forget we are always able to special order fins if you don’t see what you want on our website.

About True Ames
Since 1979, Chuck Ames and the True Ames Fins team have been developing the finest fiberglass fins available. Known throughout the international surfing community for innovative designs and a prowess for experimentation, we continue to fulfill our mission to help surfers and windsurfers maximize and manipulate the performance of their vehicles of choice. This mission began in the turbulent surf industry of the 1980’s, as True Ames forged lasting relationships with notable surfers and shapers of the Santa Barbara area and beyond. We worked closely with local comrade Al Merrick and Channel Islands Surfboards, producing the templates and foils that helped navigate young Tommy Curren toward the first American World Title in many years. We began to make fins for Reynolds Yater, one of the most prolific and renowned figures in surfboard making. We worked with cult icons the Cambell Brothers in developing fin designs for Bonzer surfboards.
