1. Why do we use polymer and what advantages does it have over traditional materials?

We are committed to taking fins to the next level. Consistent with our innovative approach, we looked for modern materials with strength and flex characteristics that would optimise the performance of our designs.

The polymer we chose was developed by a Swiss company to eventually replace metal in the car industry (a ‘metal replacement’ polymer). It produces fins that are incredibly strong, light, with great flex rebound.

2. Why are our fins more expensive?

We are committed to taking fins to the next level. We have spent years developing and protecting a range of innovative fin technologies, and will be continuing to invest in research and development to push fin performance to new heights.

3. Why does the box include fin pouches?

These travel pouches are included to protect fins while travelling.

4. How strong are the fins? Are they designed to break off at the tab?

The fins are as strong as traditional dual or twin tabs fins and are designed to break at the tab under extreme pressure.

5. On international purchases is duty payable?

Your order of Quobba Fins includes free shipping to any worldwide destination.

However, some orders may be subject to local charges. Any customs or import duties and associated fees are charged once the parcel reaches its destination country. These charges must be paid by the recipient of the parcel. We have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Quobba Fins cannot be held responsible for any additional charges on your order, nor can we accept a return of the order in this case. Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so please contact your local customs office for further information. If you refuse to pay these charges your parcel may be abandoned, and Quobba Fins will not be held responsible for any loss of funds as a result of this occurrence.

We cannot mark International orders as a gift in order to bypass or reduce any customs fees. This is an illegal practice and as an established business we will not do this.

6. Why did it cost so much to develop these fins?

We are committed to taking fins to the next level. We have spent years developing and protecting a range of innovative fin technologies, and will be continuing to invest in research and development to push fin performance to new heights.
