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. Many of the fin designs feature hollow 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 with exceptional foils that feature very unique characteristics. What we call "Fearless Foils"! The single fin range only available in fiberglass.
The HRD-KORE range of fins (WTF, XTC, DS, WS2, A3, XPD2, Q2, H5, and STD) are all molded composite fins, constructed using a combination of carbon fiber, fiberglass, and a SORIC Hex core. 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.
HRD-KORE is our name for the type of construction method used on our line of molded fins. It is an RTM molding technology that produces accurate, light, and strong fins.

Fin Setup is more art than science, the beauty of an adjustable system is that you can easily experiment to verify what effect a change in fin placement has on the performance of a board. Starts by some terminology to help understand the primer details and then goes into more detail about the various aspects of fin layout.
These layout guides provide information on the positioning of fins for various types of fin setups. They are not specific to any given board length as they are only intended to serve as a guide. Downloadable versions available.
