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 also be read there.
Over the last few days, we have introduced you to the individual new designs that are in the latest batch of CNC fins. We have brought them together in a single image to show them all together.
Each of these new designs will be in the next production run ordered up. Included will also be some designs that were done in some of the earlier batches ...
This is the smaller fin of the F8 series, and it serves primarily as the back fin in a quad setup. However, it could also be used as a smaller thruster side fin or a side bite in a 2PLUS1 setup.
It features the same FLIPTWO tips as the larger version and generally is a scaled-down version of the shape. However, it does not have ...
We have added another size to the Q5 series to fit between the standard Q5-500FT and the smaller Q5-450FT - the Q5-475FT. This is ideal for someone looking for a slightly smaller quad or thruster setup.
Like most other Q5 fins, this one also carries FLIPTWO tips. However, it is just a scaled-down version of the Q5-500FT with less area. This ...
The F8 series has its dedicated center fin design for thruster setups - F8-438C. It is a shallow design, but adding an extended blade makes up for the lack of height. Because this blade is deep in the water, it provides a lot of hold and directionality.
This template has an unusual foil through the throat of the fin, where the foil is abruptly ...
This is the largest fin in our new Q5 series - Q5-600FT. This is an awesome twin fin or large fin in a twinzer setup.
The design features the new FLIPTWO flipped tips for increased performance. Along with the Q5-475FT from the most recent batch of samples, this rounds out the fins that make up the Q5 series.
This fin has a lot of area ...
The latest iteration of our classic Hammer fin design is the H8-400. We continue to refine the design of the Hammer fin to make it more efficient and versatile.
This new version brings a better balance to the area of the overall fin, particularly the spread of the area between the blade and the throat of the fin. This fin also has radical ...
The latest samples have been scanned, and we are verifying them to start production.
The F8 fins will be the first fins from this latest batch, to be CNC machined.
The F8-500FT is the main fin in the series that will be used in either a quad or thruster setup. It features our latest FLIPTWO tips and a strong HOLOFOIL—a true performance ...
