C-Drive (L) - Apex
The C-Drive® template was developed by Troy Clutton C&C Fin Design and has been used by the likes of Ross Clarke-Jones, Maurice Cole and many others. The unique design is so innovative it was awarded a worldwide patent.
So how does it work? The combination of a very wide base with lots of surface area lower in the fin provides ridiculous amounts of drive paired with the cutout and more refined tip allow for more maneuverability. The base is wider than the depth which isn’t seen in your typical thruster fins.
Best suited for Intermediate+ to advanced surfers who spend more time on rail and those who like to get in late.
The C-Drive fins are a stiff fin which is why we made them with G10 fiberglass, we’re able to keep the rigidity needed for these to perform properly while keeping them foiled thinner than when using standard fiberglass.
These aren’t like your standard fins and will take a few sessions to get used to but once you’ve ridden them you’ll be hooked. Think about it as the drive of a keel fine with the agility of your thrusters.
We're releasing the C-Drive thruster fins in our Apex Series construction; made with a solid piece of precision foiled G10 fiberglass for the ultimate in performance and durability.
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.
