CONSTRUCTION: Alpha (Netplus)
The first fins to be made from recycled fishing nets, made in California using Bureo’s NetPlus recycled fishing nets with Futures compound 6 Carbon and Air infused technology. NetPlus material is sourced from Bureo’s fishing net recycling program in Chile, which provides collection points to keep plastic fishing nets out of our oceans, protecting wildlife and supporting local fishing communities through financial incentives. This line is moulded carbon fiber made in Huntington Beach, California that delivers every bit of performance you’d expect from an upgrade fin at a Balanced Ride Number. Super lightweight and resilient, Alpha is the first of its kind, lighter than Honeycomb and an innovation for Futures. Infused with resilient carbon fiber and lightness of air, this is the most advanced injection fin material ever created.
ABOUT THE BRAND
Futures Fins began in a garage in California in 1996, by the Longo brothers who had a reputation for tackling challenging aerospace parts and fabricating hydrogen fuel cells for research. This all changed when they decided to combine their technical know-how with something they both loved – surfing. Keeping it local was important, so Futures is able to dream up a fin, design it, cut it and surf it withing a few hours under the one roof in Huntington Beach. With this ability, they have been able to constantly evolve their designs, to create new feelings and experiences to share with other surfers. They continue to refine and research, creating ride numbers and employing in house engineers to provide the best equipment. Futures fins ethos is about being authentic, challenging the status quo and standing for the evolution of our sport, creating some of the strongest, lightest fins on the market, to create the fins of the future.
