The MiniEPIC windsurfing wave fins are your choice for THRUSTER wave boards. These are the exact fins which Morgan Noireuaux used to win the 2014 and 2015 PWA Aloha Classic and are the fin of choice for riders who are serious about their performance and want to have more fun on the water.
What are the features & benefits
SPEED – the foiling of the MiniEPIC thruster set up will help you to generate more speed on the wave which makes every aspect of wave sailing easier and more radical. Catch more waves and rip them harder! Speed and drive is also a huge benefit when blasting through the waves, move speed will give you more height on your jumps.
TURNING – the combination of foil and outline help you to increase the rail to rail roll of your wave board which exaggerates and tightens your turns on the wave. Tighter turns are more aggressive and radical!
CONTROL – enhanced grip lets you throw yourself into the turn with the confidence that your fins will hold in and grip hard to the water, more grip and control helps you ride tighter and faster.
LONGEVITY – our [Black Ed.] fins are made in black G10 which is incredibly strong and resistant to sun light, even if you ding your fin it is easy and quick to repair with wet and dry sandpaper. Your fins are likely to out last your board!
CUSTOMIZABLE – with 84 possible thruster combinations available there is no greater opportunity to fine tune your board on the market.
WINNING – these are the fins which are proven winners at the highest level, as used by Morgan Noireux to win the 2014 & 2015 PWA Aloha Classic events at Ho’okipa. Also used by many other champions including 4 x AWT Champion Ingrid Larouche, Youth & Amateur Champion Jake Schettewi & many more. More podiums positions at the 2015 Aloha Classic were filled by Black Project Fins than any other brand!
