The reality for many of the local venues is seaweed. In such circumstances it’s essential to have a fin that sheds weed, yet still lets you unleash the potential of the flat water and wind available.
WEEDSPEED VS SUPERWEED
Besides our regular WeedSpeed fins, we have now added the SuperWeed to our range for special use in those areas where extreme weed growth occurs and our regular Weed fin does not quite cut it anymore… The SuperWeed’s rake is set up at a more extreme angle than the WeedSpeed to shed weed.
The Tribal line solves this weed problem with a more upright base region, which helps to keep the centre of pressure forward, giving more of the same feeling on the water as an upright fin. Weed is accelerated down the leading edge as the curvature increases, leading to a much better matched set-up than conventional weed fins.
We also used some techniques to control dynamic twist, so that the fin doesn’t lose power as you load it hard and try to bend it.
