Kestrel Quad - Apex
The front fins are an adaptation our Marlin twin template. The idea was to split the surface area of the twins into a quad setup for a looser, more playful feel. We drew in the trailing edge for the quad fronts and scaled them down some. The trailers complement this outline but are considerably smaller; providing stability without sacrificing flow.

We're releasing the Kestrel Quad fins in our Apex Series construction; made with a solid piece of precision foiled G10 fiberglass for the ultimate in performance and durability. The combination of highly durable material and precision foiling yield a fin that is stronger and has a more ideal flex pattern than your traditional honeycomb or composite fins.
G10 is made by compressing layers of fiberglass and epoxy resin and baking it an autoclave to have the maximum strength of any fiberglass available. Learn more about the NVS Apex Series fins here.

These fins literally transformed my 8ft performance fish. I tried many quad fin combos and really decided that it was not surfable and disliked the board. I decided to give it one last try with these fins because it was similar to the Machados that has great reviews and my board is similar to the seaside and beyond. I am glad I did because from the first wave it was great! Now it’s my favorite board because of these fins. It is WAY faster and more maneuverable! Thanks for bringing back the stoke. I am looking forward to trying out more templates in the future.
I am super stocked on these fins. I have a quad fish that was literally unrideable with other fins but this set took the board to a whole new level!! I actually tried to sell the board but after being low balled too many times I decided to give the board one last chance with these fins. I am glad because it really paid off. I will be purchasing more templates in the futures for sure!
When i first got my Lost Libtech Puddle Fish, I set it up as a thruster and lacked speed and drive in general. As soon as i popped in these split keel quads, I felt instant speed down the line and control through turns.
I was getting ready to sell my seaside because it felt to "sticky" and slow when using the FCS seaside quads and a friend recommended NVS. I was a little hesitant with their pricing but my buddy spoke highly of NVS and after calling them I decided to pull the trigger.
To say I'm impressed is an understatement. The Kestrel quads made the board come alive and I could really feel the different in foiling when comparing the these to my other fins. These are hands down my favorite fins.
