The Apex Series GL Thruster surfboard fin is a large sized template, available in both FCS and Futures base. The GL is a scaled up version of the widely popular NV-5.0 template. We extended the base to optimize down the line projection and drive through bottom turns. We also thinned out both the trailing edge and tip significantly, yielding a very progressive, responsive flex pattern. These fins are extremely fast and will allow surfers speed and control through arcing turns and in powerful surf. The GLs also allow larger surfers to more easily generate speed in smaller waves.

We're releasing the GL thruster 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.
