    Hey everyone,

    A buddy of mine borrowed a set of fins from his friend and absolutely loves them. They are quite unique looking and he has no idea of their origins. Is there anyone who could replicate a set of unique fins like these? He reached out to True Ames and a few other fin manufacturers who said they couldn't.

    Thanks in advance!

    Did he try Rainbow Fins? They used to make curved fins like that, they called them Turbo fins. I have a pair of turbo Lokbox fish fins. Don't know if Rainbow ever made turbos with FCS base.

    Webber was doing curved twins that were made for him by Phil Wey and later switched to fcs.
    Webber flex twins in the desired template are available from the link above but don't have the curve. If you really want the curve you could ask Greg if he will make them with it.
    See my post on the unusual twin fin thread further down the page for pics of these fins in my board.
    Says not in stock but I hit buy it button anyway and they were in stock.

    I'll second, or rather third, Juan as a great choice, just a wonderful craftsman in both wood and fiberglass.

    Thanks for all the help everyone! And thanks Cuttlefish, it looks like Greg was indeed the one who made the fins originally. I was secretly hoping to help him get them done so I could snag a set for myself also haha.
