The new Kraken Freewave fin has been designed to increase board speed, wind range and turning abilities of all single fin freewave boards. We combined aspects of our Epic wave fins together with the speed and drive of our freeride fins to develop a new freewave fin. We collated rider feedback from the past 5yrs during which the Kracken’s predecessor was a top seller. Despite the popularity of this fin we decided that it was time to update things a little. We do not like change for change sake but wanted to enhance some aspects of board performance. It has been extremely fun to test the prototypes in a wide variety of conditions from wave riding to flat water blasting. The development of this new freewave fin was a team effort. Testing was completed by a range of customers, shops as well as our pro riders 2 x Aloha Classic champion Morgan Noireuax and Freestyle World Champion Dieter v/d Eyken. In the end we chose the fin for production which we were having the most fun on! So whether you are a bigger rider looking for more turning from your freewave board in waves or love to blast around, jump and try some freestyle then the new Kracken Freewave single fin is likely to be your next fin acquisition.

Enhanced Turning Abilities From a Freewave Fin

Building on the success of our legacy freewave fin we wanted to tighten the turning radius and increase board speed. With boards becoming shorter and wider we have been able to enhance the characteristics of the foil as a result. Freewave boards now turn much smoother and the new fin is designed to help further enhance the wave characteristics while maintaining the early planning and speed.

 

The Kraken & The Black Project Collection

The new freewave fin now fits more seamlessly into the updated collection of fins for 2017. The Kraken and it’s weed alternate the Freeweed are interchangeable so a Kraken 28cm should sail like a Freeweed L(28) and vice versa. As the diagram indicates the Kracken can be seen as a progression from the Epic, both share the same DNA but are tuned for their own specific environments. The Freeweed is the weed alternative to the Kracken.

Faster Speeds & Quicker Acceleration

Speed is important for jumping but also because it is fun! The new fin was been designed to accelerate quickly and reach higher speeds than the previous version. This will help you blast past your friends but also keep you upwind and between the waves quicker for higher jumps. Our foiling technology enabled up to achieve this goal.

 

Increased Freewave Board Wind Range

While it is preferable to change your fin like you change your sails that it doesn’t always happen. We designed a fin with a wider wind range so that it remains in control when over powered and has plenty of drive for onshore and lighter winds. While there will never be a one fin fits all solution, the new Kracken Freewave fin has a wider operating wind speed than our previous designs. This was achieved in part by concentrating the fin area and power closer to the base of the fin.
