Future Fins – Elevon Quad

Future Fins - Elevon Quad

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.

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.
