Custom fins can be ordered directly from this page. They are handled differently than the regular HRD-KORE fins in our store.
When purchasing a set of custom fins what is happening is that an order is being placed for the chosen fins, and a deposit is being paid upfront.
The amount charged is a flat rate (based on the number of fins) that serves as a deposit for the order. The amount changes slightly depending on what is being ordered and the options. The balance and the shipping charges will be due when the fins are delivered.
Here are the steps of the process, and the various choices.
- Use the appropriate category for your fin setup - TWINS, CENTERS , or SINGLES
- For QUAD sets select from the TWINS section and select both the FRONT and BACK fins
- Select the FIN SERIES from the dropdown list
- For SINGLE fins the FIN SIZE can also be selected, with slight price increases as the size increases
- Select the type of FIN BASE (FUTURES bases adds a charge to each fin)
- Select the preferred COLOR
- Make a payment that serves as a deposit for the order. Balance and shipping charges due when fins are delivered, the balance owing will be emailed to the customer on completion of the order.
The color selected is the primary color for the body of the fin, for FLIP TIP fins the tips are always OPAQUE WHITE, except for the CLEAR/RED combo that is also one of the color options, which has a CLEAR body with RED TINT tips.
NOTE: When selecting FUTURES bases for a custom order there is an additional charge for the base! This charge is added directly to the initial deposit so the amount paid upfront will increase by the number of fins ordered.
Delivery times for custom fins are from 4 - 8 weeks, with the longer delivery times applying to Australia since the fins are foiled in the USA and then shipped to Australia for finishing.
Single fins always have the standard longboard base, so there is no option to select the base. By default, the bases are always made with the tab in the front. Single fins include a screw and breakaway plate. There is an additional option for the FIN SIZE that ranges from 5.00" to 9.50" in 1/2" increments. NOTE: some of the larger sizes are not appropriate for some of the fin series, so if you are unsure about the size please CONTACT us.
Single fins start with a base DEPOSIT and then depending on the SIZE of the fin an additional charge is added to the base amount to arrive at the final DEPOSIT. Once the fins are completed the balance plus shipping will be owing.
The motive for this new process is to create a better paper trail for the order and also to speed up the process. By taking a deposit it also secures the customer's order in the production queue. Orders will be produced, in sequence, based on the order number and date received.
Hopefully, it will create a smoother process for all.
NOTE: all deposits are made in US$ as that is where the fins are initially created, so the deposit is going to the USA!
