I’ve surfed these fins for 6 months now. Quobba fins have the hold and drive of larger fins, while allowing me the critical short turns of smaller fins…..for me, the perfect combination….I just can’t go back to a standard foiled fin !!!

I love playing around and riding lots of different shape surfboards- it keeps things interesting for me . But theres never been any fins that you get that feeling from- only ever been quite subtle feeling changes, like a different size fin or a different flex in the material etc. Until now no fins have made a difference to my surfing as these fins have. they feel so fast and make all more boards feel like they come alive in no way they have before- makes me never want to go back to the fins i used to ride, I’m now hooked.
These fins have really got me frothing on surfing again, I’m making sections i never would of normally been able to make surfing and for kitesurfing the hold through turns is crazy, gives you that extra grip when turning against your kite! do yourself a favour and get your hands on some, you won’t regret it!

#1 G’day lads. Just got out of the water surfing 2ft slop with the fins. Epic! Made sections I didn’t think I would heaps of speed and drive. Can’t wait to get in the water again…..once the sharks have gone. Yeow

#2 More drive than my bloody jet ski can deliver!

I was sceptical on the fins at first because they were a lot different from anything I’ve ever tried , but gave them a shot on a small day and they were some of the best small wave fins I’ve used , instantly felt the speed difference from a standard set of fins I would usually try, the drive and speed immediately from take off was amazing, can’t wait to get them in some solid stuff!

Hey Mitch, thanks for the fins used them out at gas and they went really well, could get speed out of nowhere and hold it with control, felt great going into the air. I’ll keep on them for sure!

Nat Hozier *Surfing Quobba Shifter

Used FCS M5 Carbon side fins and rear Shifter set on shapers marks.

Board felt a bit stiff so could have shifted the fin forward.

Board felt really drivey and inspired confidence. It did not feel like it was going to “spin out” and a few pumps sent it flying.
Held rail. I thought it would cavitate like crazy – Nup!

Nothing negative to say. Great work guys.

It’s like nothing I’ve ever experienced under my feet. Quobba fins have the drive and speed of a quad but yet you could still put them on rail like a thruster.
It’s the perfect balance!

I was blown away how the fins instantly transformed a board I hated into being one of my favourite boards. The board was previously slow & stiff through turns, now it’s super drivey and turns on a dime. It’s insane how much more speed now I can generate pumping down the line. I can’t wait to get them in some bigger powerful waves. Bring on Fiji!

G’day mate,

I had three separate surfs on two different boards,

one of the surfs was at Wiktons (Rare Left Bank that forms next to gas reef)on a small 5’2, it was about 3ft surf. This surf was extremely fun for me as i have never felt this board react like this before;

Pros- acceleration from take-off, extra drive off the bottom and through turns, also the feeling of hold through all turns is amazing!, the drive around sections feels like i’m on a quad!!

Cons- Personally i don’t have any cons on the fins, they have changed the way i surf in such a positive way. Hopefully i can get out on a good solid day 10ft plus and really put them to the test.

The other surf i had at Wiktons was on my 5’10 all round board, i really haven’t surfed this board for a long time so this session i had was more about getting used to the board again than the fins.But i must say i haven’t had or felt this board go this fast on such a small wave since i surfed it as a quad in Gland a couple of yrs back, and that surf was 5-6ft Money-trees compared to 3-4ft sand bottom point that wiktons is.

The third surf i had was at small gas reef on the 5’2, again this surf was definitely a lot of fun waves backhand and forehand, the backhand waves i got (rights) were amazing once again the hold when backdooring the peak was crazy as the wave can have a lot of steps in the face at the take-off, the drive through top turns was amazing, I’m still trying to get used to the feeling as i have never experience this before.

Hopefully this helps mate, can’t wait to get home and get back in the water!!!

P.S. i really want to thank you for giving me a chance to surf these fins as in my 25 odd years surfing i have never felt my surfing feel this good and it has definitely given me new fire in the belly to try surf everyday, it’s brought back my super grom froth!! Yeewwww!!!!

Cheers

I’ve been involved in the testing of the fins for the past of couple of years. These fins really perform and it is amazing the difference the small keel makes to your board’s performance . They are faster and create really good lift once you get them going – especially on clean faces.

They also feature incredible hold heading up the face of a wave, through carves and in the barrel. Once you have worked them out you can basically bottom turn in a more critical part of the wave . When I go back to my normal fins it feels like my board has flat tyres. Someone asked me the other day, “Are they worth $230?” and I can honestly say yes they are.

Sounds like I am getting a bit excited but I honestly feel like I am surfing better on them…

Mate these fins are unreal. Just had my first surf on them at a Morrocon point break. Insane, they just hold and then release perfectly. Frothing on them.
