How are the Fins Different?*click on a title below for more info
Our fins are about half the weight and reducing any weight on your rig is a good thing.
With 100% carbon in the laminate and our unique outline, carbon is only needed to control the bend and twist of the fin. VMG Blades doesn’t need to add more weight, to counteract the twist produced by their outlines. We also have some specially formulated ingredients to keep everything nice and light.
Our outline was designed especially for sailing control and ability to fully customise without the guess work. An outline with almost neutral twist gives the ability to control twist characteristics without having to combat or trade-off against the geometric twist built into other outlines such as swept-back designs. Where if you change one property of the fin and then need to compensate or neutralise other properties, well that introduces guess work.
So we use the best designers, like Boogie, to bounce around ideas and create new fins. It takes years of learning and understanding topics like hydro-dynamics, aero-dynamics, engineering and carbon composites.
We are constantly investing our time and energy into true Research & Development. At least it means we get lots of time on the water testing prototypes and next season’s equipment!
Only VMG Blades offer true custom fins for everyone, not just the pros. The advantages that pros have with fins that suit their gear, weight, height and sailing style are also available to you. We will provide the same service, expert advice and options to get you sailing your personal best on the right fin.
