Futures Fins - EA Blackstix Thruster Fin
The EA Blackstix, designed by Eric Arakawa of EA Surfboards, is a medium size Speed Generating fin with a Ride Number of 9.8. The Blackstix construction and V2 foil are ideal for building speed in smaller waves. The EA template features a slightly refined tip, making the EA Blackstix one of our most popular fins for medium sized surfers in softer conditions.
BLACKSTIX: Blackstix have a flexible Carbon Fiber tip that loads up and releases energy for generating speed when you need it. These are the lightest fins in the Futures line.
V and V2 foils feel fluid and drivey, and have the ability to generate speed while flat fins break free sooner and are better at controlling speed. Often surfers prefer flat foiled fins in fast powerful surf where they do not need to create additional speed.
