Endorfins Kelly Slater KS1 Airtech Thruster Small - Single Tab
Finnesystem: FCSII - Single Tab
Designed by 11 time world champ Kelly Slater
B — 110.5mm B —105.5mm
H — 113mm H — 109.5mm
A better build – innovative carbon inlays in Endorfins add strength and flex that enable them to be built with a core comprised of 90% pure air. As a result, Endorfins not only provide optimum performance but also literally float on water.
AIRTech - Carbon twill combined with an ultra lightweight, non-woven carbon well to optimize the engineered flex patterns. Recycled P.E.T. core contains a minimum of 90% AIR and has zero water absorbtion. Fins are so light they float on water.
FIN BOXES: Each set is built with a base that is compatible with either TWO TAB FIN BOXES or SINGLE TAB FIN BOXES. The Futures compatible base on Endorfins will work just like a fin built by Futures with a Futures base. The FCSII compatible base will require two screws that will come with the fins. Endorfins with FCSII compatible bases will not click in and click out.
THE BRANDING: The circle on the side of each Endorfins fin represents flow. It's a new take on Kelly’s iconic circular branding that has appeared on every fin he's endorsed previously, paying homage to the past while building forward towards the future.
THE ECO STORY: ‘Screw your fins, not your ocean”. Kelly has a hobby of collecting fins from the reef in front of his home in Hawaii. These fins are trash, abandoned on the ocean floor. By screwing our fins into our surfboards – and with the fact that they float - we prevent this from happening. We are additionally continuing our commitment to Sea Trees – ‘wiping’ the yearly carbon footprint of our fin production through conserving kelp forest in California, protecting rain forest in Africa, and planting mangrove trees in Indonesia.
Kelly Slater has always had a deep relationship and passion for fins being that they are a critical component of board design and performance. We wanted to bring this to life by launching a fin brand driven by Kelly’s vision of performance and eco responsibility. We believe as surfers we have a responsibility to make fins as eco-friendly as possible and ensure we keep our ocean floor free from “Lost and Broken fins”. Endorfins are designed to be screwed into the fin box to secure the base of the fin and allow the carbon flex patterns to truely come to life. In addition, we have also designed the fins to float so they can be retrieved from the ocean if needed. Each set is built with a base that is compatible with either FCSII or Futures boxes. The Futures compatible base on Endorfins will work just like a fin built by Futures with a Futures base. The FCSII compatible base will require two screws that will come with the fins. Endorfins with FCSII compatible bases will not click in and click out.
The design of these fins are the culmination of Kelly’s many years and extensive experience with a variety of designs and templates. This unique flex pattern is created by a carbon twill, layered with an ultralight carbon veil over a P.E.T core. The P.E.T core is majority air resulting in Fins so light they float on water. Combining that knowledge, and several rounds of testing and adjusting over the past year and a half, we are excited to present Endorfins to the world.
