FUTURES Thruster Fin Set AM2 Al Merrick Techflex
LIGHT LIKE HONEYCOMB. STIFF LIKE FIBERGLASS
- Ride number: 3.4 – Speed control (solid and predictable)
- Finbox: Futures

The AM2 Techflex, designed by legendary shaper Al Merrick of Channel Island Surfboards, is a large sized thruster in the Rake template category. The template features a wider base and refined tip, for the perfect mix of drive and release. The Techflex construction and flat foil give this fin a stable feel, making it ideal for controlling speed in more powerful waves. The center fin is smaller than the side fins for increased maneuverability.
A TOOL TO HELP YOU SURF BETTER
Using Ride Number is easy, you just have to understand the feelings of Speed Generating and Speed Control. On one end of the Ride Number scale is Speed Generating fins. These fins feel responsive and provide that extra spring most often wanted when the surf is lacking power. On the opposite side is Speed Control. These fins feel solid, engaged, and predictable providing that extra hold usually only needed when the surf is cranking. The middle ground is Balanced, offering a mix of the two extremes for an all around feel. Just remember, when you're pumping - Speed Generating, when the waves are pumping - Speed Control.
SPEED CONTROL + RESPONSE
Techflex fins are engineered to be stiff and light. These fins will give you a solid and engaged feel for those big drops yet be lightweight and responsive when engaging the rail. These fins sit above the fiberglass line and have a Ride Number range of 3 - 4. Techflex fins are great for powerful surfers or powerful conditions.
Stiff & Light
Techflex fins are the perfect complement for those who like big waves or power surfing but want a little more spring off the lip. The honeycomb core makes these fins light while the carbon keeps them stiff and engaged. These fins are perfect for solid rail turns and drive down the line, while being springy and responsive when needed.
3K carbon along the base and tip of these fins makes them lighter than standard honeycomb fins while maintaining the stiffness of fiberglass. This engineered flex creates a vertical flex pattern, which enables you to maintain control and drive down the line while being lively and free off the lip.
