PHD VolanJan 31 2015
Unlike most fins, the Volan PHD is hand foiled by the mad surf scientists at True Ames who specialize in the art of classic fin construction. Displayed above are 3 sizes of the PHD - 9", 9.5", and 10" - each size has its own custom template, making subtle tweaks to fine tune each fin perfectly. True to it's flex fin roots, this tall, wide based fin has a forward foil with a rounder leading edge and is designed for down the line drive while balancing a flexible tip to project you out of your directional changes. There is truly nothing better than a flexy fin springing a flexy board across the face of a racy point break which makes this fin a close friend for many mid-lengths and displacement hulls.
