The Futures John John Florence Alpha fin is a medium sized Balanced surfboard fin with a Ride Number of 5.5. It is the same template that JJF rode to the WSL World Championship in 2016 and that has been a global best seller since the initial release. The C6 material and flat foil make this fin predictable, yet more lively in softer surf when compared to the Techflex version. All Alpha products are designed and manufactured exclusively in Huntington Beach, Ca USA.

Speed Generating vs Speed Control – RIDE NUMBER EXPLAINED
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
