New SUP Fins

These gorgeous fins are designed with progressive flex in the tip area…the bamboo provides incredible flex characteristics and also displaces resin making them a greener product…

Bamboo is a sustainable resource because it’s one of the fastest growing plants on Earth. Bamboo is also light, strong, and has a great look. Every bamboo SUP fin looks unique…because of the wood grain no two are alike.
