Episode 7 With Harley Ingleby
Surfboard fins play a significant role in shaping the performance of a surfer and their board when they unite on a wave. While the design of a surfboard holds its own allure, it is the fins that truly breathe life into a board. With the aim of unraveling the secrets behind fin templates, we reached out to some of the world's best surfers.
In episode seven of Beneath The Surface, we catch up two times World Longboard Champion, shaper and Coffs Harbour local Harley Ingleby.
FCS jumps into his Coffs Harbour board cave to get deep on fins and how different fins have complemented the wide array of boards in Harley's quiver.
"A lot of people will get hung up on a set of fins, but I always ask what was their point of reference before you got on those fins or on that equipment? I know guys who ride twinnies a lot and they don't look loose or slidey but if you've come off riding something standard and functional then your first surf on a twin is going to feel swirly."
In episode five of Beneath The Surface, we catch up with one of the world's most promising and exciting surfers Crosby Colapinto.
Cros gives us his insights into his favourite fins and why he's now jazzed on riding quads.
