Where all the latest news about HANALEI FINS can be found, we tend to put all of our announcements here, as well as information about new designs and the testing process.

Some of the historical blog posts from previous years are slowly being moved into the new blog. Initially, all of the most interesting ones will be moved over. Eventually we hope to get all of the old posts up here so they are accessible.

Most of the new posts also get placed on our Facebook page, so they can be read there as well.

Finally, the bulked out wing fin blank.

After adding the extra pieces of material to the tips of the wings we are now ready to start creating the wing profile.

More Block WNG Fin Blanks

This involved tapering the wing blocks up to the top (bottom) tips and tapering from the tip to the base plate on the top (bottom).

This is a tricky part of the process as the taper has to be flat and square in order to layout the foil for the wing. Makes a lot of dust doing this, going to have to figure out how I can get my CNC machine to handle the blocking of the taper. Using it will likely make the taper more accurate. But with the CNC there is always a little experimenting involved, so I'd be nervous doing it with a fin blank as you could lose the whole thing.

Just finished another WNG fin today and part way through another. Three more to go!
