Product Info

The C-Drive® template was developed by Troy Clutton C&C Fin Design and has been used by the likes of Ross Clarke-Jones, Maurice Cole and many others. The unique design is so innovative it was awarded a worldwide patent. Best suited for Intermediate+ to advanced surfers who spend more time on rail and those who like to get in late.

So how does it work? The combination of a very wide base with lots of surface area lower in the fin provides ridiculous amounts of drive paired with the cutout and more refined tip allow for more maneuverability. The base is wider than the depth which isn't seen in your typical thruster fins.

The C-Drive fins are a stiff fin which is why NVS made them with G10 fiberglass, they're able to keep the rigidity needed for these to perform properly while keeping them foiled thinner than when using standard fiberglass. These aren't like your standard fins and will take a few sessions to get used to but once you've ridden them you'll be hooked. Think about it as the drive of a keel fine with the agility of your thrusters.

NVS is releasing the C-Drive thruster fins in their Apex Series construction; made with a solid piece of precision foiled G10 fiberglass for the ultimate in performance and durability. G10 is made by compressing layers of fiberglass and epoxy resin and baking it an autoclave to have the maximum strength of any fiberglass available.

NVS APEX SERIES FINS


NVS Apex Series Fiberglass Fins: The Pinnacle of Performance.

Better Materials:

  • Apex: Made using G10; an industrial grade fiberglass, which is manufactured to the highest quality standard. Made by heating special fibers with epoxy resin under intense pressure in order to make a perfect panel; they eliminated the errors which can occur by using a hand layup. By heating the fibers and resin under pressure NVS is left with the ideal resin to fiber ratio in order to maximize strength and decrease weight.
  • Apex Flex: Made using Volan Fiberglass for increased flex through the body of the fin.

Better Foiling:
One of the main benefits to NVS' Apex line of fins is that each fin is cut on a CNC machine using the exact foil profiles NVS developed.

  • SeriesIII: The benchmark of high performance. NVS uses a very specific foil that was derived from a series of NACA foils whose purpose was to increase laminar flow (speed) while decreasing turbulent flow (drag). This translates to a fin that allows for faster/easier generation of speed and has a wider angle of attack, which means you won’t lose as much speed while bottom turning or going through hard cutbacks.
  • Concave: or inside foils are used on board where you want easier rail to rail transitions. Concave foils will generate more hold at slower speeds but will not be able to go as fast as flat foiled fins.
  • Retro: Used on some longboard fins such as the Da Clutch and Gypsy which feature a more period appropriate foil to suite the classic board designs.

Better Manufacturing:
By using cutting edge CNC machines and precise designs they machine cut each fin in order to have the perfect foil and finish. All NVS fins are designed 100% in house using advanced 3D software.

This is what makes the Apex Series G10 fins the strongest most high performance fins in the world.
