The Futures AM3 Honeycomb, designed by legendary shaper Al Merrick of Channel Islands Surfboards, is a small size Balanced fin with a Ride Number of 5.9. Designed for lightweight surfers to perform in all conditions, the Honeycomb material offers a neutral flex pattern. The template’s extended rake is ideal for powerful carves and the thin tip provides for optimal release off of the top.

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
