This has been in the works for awhile and now they are finally here - CNC HANALEI FINS!

These are the closest we can get to our custom fins and are far superior to our excellent RTM molded fins. Over time we will be moving all of our production to the CNC approach as it gives us greater flexibility, better quality, and improved strength for the DUAL TAB bases.

The designs are digitized from our custom fins and then reproduced via the CNC machine, which does an amazing job of reproducing the foils.

All of the first run of these fins have a sprayed finish, but going forward we will be moving to an oiled finish just like the one we use on most of our custom fins. This type of finish allows the foils to be as true to the design as possible, while making for a less toxic finishing process, and allowing the pattern of the fiberglass to be visible. The oil finish is 100% organic and does not leave an oily film on the fins.

Initially, we have the following templates in stock:

A4C-550 - GEARBOX, DUAL TAB, FUTURES Deep
A4C-500 - GEARBOX, DUAL TAB, FUTURES Deep
A4C-425 - GEARBOX, DUAL TAB, FUTURES Deep (no shallow yet)
A4C-500CK - GEARBOX, DUAL TAB, FUTURES Shallow
Q2-500 - GEARBOX, DUAL TAB, FUTURES Deep
QB2-425 - GEARBOX, DUAL TAB, FUTURES Deep (no shallow yet)

The A4C side fins are all a MANGO color, with the center fin BLACK, the Q2 and QB2 fins are a RED tint. See photos.

All of the currently available fins will make it onto the online store within the next couple of days. Also inventory of these fins will also be on the way to Australia in the next couple of weeks making them available from Sanded Australia, soon!

Initially there are not large numbers of these fins, but we have more on order and the turnaround is generally faster than with the HRD-KORE fins.

All of the specs for these fins are the same as can be found on this site for the HRD-KORE versions, but we will shortly be adding a dedicated section for the CNC versions.

These fins are going to be more expensive than the HRD-KORE, but cheaper than the CUSTOMS. The price will be US$10 per fin more expensive than a HRD-KORE fin, putting them midway between the HRD-KORE and CUSTOMS. Our HRD-KORE fins have never seen a price increase in all the time we have been in business. These fins cost more to produce and are of a higher quality so we have to raise the price accordingly.

All of this information will be on the website soon!

Going forward all production will move to this construction technique. Plus all of the new designs that we have in the pipeline will be manufactured exclusively via the CNC machine. We are working on getting the entire Q5 line into production, along with the K9-500K, K9-450K and PWR-400. Along with these fins we also have a range of TX single fins in the works.

With the availability of these new CNC fins it is a dream come true for us. It has always been our goal to deliver the best quality fins to the broadest market possible. This is just not possible with custom fins as they are so labour intensive. These CNC fins are as close as we can get to a custom, and they faithfully reproduce the original foils. We could not be more stoked, they are unreal!. People are going to love them!

HANALEI FINS

HANALEI FINS manufactures an extensive range of both RTM molded composite fins (HRD-KORE), as well as custom fiberglass & G-10 fins (HANALEI FINS). The custom fins include quads, thrusters, side bites, and regular single fins.

We offer a range of completely unique templates that are unlike anything else available in the marketplace. All fins are offered with either GEARBOX or DUAL TAB bases, as well as FUTURES bases on some designs. All of the designs feature our HOLOFOILS inside foils for an extra performance boost.

Our custom handmade fins are produced one at a time the old fashioned way, with hand foiling and finishing. These are high quality fins that all feature our PHAT FOILS with very unique characteristics. What we call "Fearless Foils"!

The HRD-KORE range of fins (A4C, XPD2, Q2, WTF, XTC, DS, WS2, and H5) are RTM molded composite fins. This is a light strong construction method that allows us to deliver high quality fins at a reasonable price point. All of these fins are offered with our GEARBOX base, as well as DUAL TAB, and in some templates FUTURES bases.

The various choices will be presented in three groupings - HRD-KORE, CUSTOM, and SINGLE fins.

Delivering the future

Our fin ranges are offered in three distinct categories as shown below.

Each choice will delve in greater detail on the designs that make up the category.

The HRD-KORE are RTM molded fins, while the CUSTOM and SINGLE fins are all solid figerglass. All CUSTOM and SINGLE fins are handmade and only available by pre-order, we do not stock the fins that make up these ranges.

HRD-KORE fins can be purchased directly from this site in the Australia and Hawai'i stores. CUSTOM fins can be ordered through the custom store where a lot more detail can be found on the ordering process.
