“You are a function of what the whole universe is doing in the same way that a wave is a function of what the whole ocean is doing.” (Watts, 15)



My question still remains how can I be a figure that helps connect people back with the sea, basic elements, and the unitive light of nature, while spreading the thrill of the art of surf as well as the understanding that it is such an aesthetic/energetic delight at the same time? This shall be achieved by modeling and creating my own 3d printed biodegradable surfboard fins, which will allow me to give back and become deeper further into the global surfing community and lead a life forever connected to the water.


Fins have revolutionized surfing for over  50 years now, and theses images following in my humble opinion are the optimum fin shape and are very close to the perfect fin that I keep seeing in my imagination.  They should give you at least some understanding as to the certain style of fin I’m trying to master.



This set up is a set of whats called thruster fins, they have always been what I preferred and equipped on a fairly small board.

By the way its dolphins who are the real geniuses of waves.

This is my latest prototype, it turned out rather swell but I still have yet to create a design that to me is ideal and that I can trust is brilliant.

A more recent design I’m experimenting with shaped more so like a dolphin fin rather than the classic thruster/reactor style Ive loved since a kid.

This shape is intended for a wide range of conditions from beach breaks to point breaks.

A new beginning...

New beginnings…
