Futures F8 HC Thruster Legacy Series
A perfectly Balanced Large Honeycomb Thruster Fin Set
This template is a real no brainer if you are unsure about which fin will suit your new board. A well balanced shape that is not too upright, not too raked & not too big in the base or tip either. The fiberglass honeycomb construction & foil of the fin also means that the F8 has a nice medium flex pattern – which equals a good balance of drive and release.
This might all sound a bit vanilla to you, but the combination & balance of all these factors means that this is one predictable, reliable fin that will work. A great go to set for small to medium sized surfers, a fin that will get the job done in a variety of conditions & in a variety of different boards.

Futures have significantly simplified the process of selecting fins with their new Legacy Series. 3 templates (Rake, Neutral & Pivot) in 3 sizes (Small, Medium & Large) with the exact same area and construction.
Switching the fin template while retaining the same fin area allows you to dramatically change both the turning circle and the drive of your board. The area remains constant – allowing you to retain a consistent amount of fin under you feet. All constructed in the honeycomb fibreglass – making the flex relatively constant.
With three sets of fins you can easily fine tune your equipment to a wide variety of conditions. If it’s peaky beachbreaks – chuck in a set of the Pivot template so you can make those tight direction changes. If your local point is pumping – grab a set of the Rake template and enjoy the extra speed, drive and control. Sitting slap bang in the middle of the Pivot & the Rake is the Neutral template – with a great balance of pivot, drive and hold.
