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 center 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 center fin range only available in fiberglass.
The HRD-KORE range of fins (WTF, XTC, DS, WS2, A3, XPD2, Q2, H3, 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 we use on our line of molded fins. It is an RTM molding technology that produces accurate, light, and strong fins.
The range of custom fins includes all of the HRD-KORE ranges, but additionally there are a number of new and unique templates that are currently only available as custom fins. Some of the fins shown are in the prototyping phase as we prepare them for possible additIon to the HRD-KORE line.
Hanalei Fins has an extensive range of very unique and functional single fins. These are all made from solid fiberglass and are available in a wide range of sizes. All of our single fins are custom handmade and finished.
