Beauties. Still dig that SG lam too.
very nice indeed!
Holy eye candy! Even aside from the impressive handiwork, I am loving those color choices in the photo with the first 4. (And bonus points for the coastal wooden background.) Almost looks like something out of a design book.
How does that Kumano system hold up in the long run? Do you have to lubricate the bearings or anything to keep them moving? Do you have to remove the fin regularly or rinse regularly to keep the bearings from getting all boogered up with sand or anything?
Thanks Chilly. A few of us have been using fins with the bearings for at least 2 years with no issues. It is a molded plastic cylinder with a stainless spring and ball inside. There are specific measurements for installation. Done right, the bottom of the fin base rests on the bottom of the box, sides of the fin are fitted snug, and balls expand into the channel where the metal plate would go. I always rinse my boards off. No contamination or corrosion issues so far. Easy in the water adjustability.
Two current fins for forum members. Foiling done yesterday. Bases need to be shaped and fitted, split pin and Kumano System bearings installed, then glossed sanded and polished. 9" Velzy Classic and 9.75" G4A.
You taking custom orders? I want 10" 4a profile for hansen and waveset boxes. Hmm....hmm....
Yes I can do customs but I’m not really equipped to make fins with older bases for vintage boxes. Juan Rodriguez can but you already know that. I have a mold made to produce a Wave Set adapter to use modern fins in the vintage box. It has been working well. Pretty backed up on orders right now and trying to keep it a hobby. PM me for pics or details. Thanks.
