Designed as an alternative to the rake fins commonly used in performance-focused noseriders, the Flying Diamonds Phase 3 is for surfers who are planning to turn but still want maximum hold and maneuverability while hanging ten. The Phase 3 features the same trailing edge as the original Sea Monnster Pivot to maintain the same maneuverability profile from the nose, but has a slimmed-down base for increased pivot and whip off the tail.
Josh rides the Phase 3 in his 2.0 Model and any turn-focused longboard that he still wants to be able to hang ten as long as possible. He also rides it in his normal noseriders when he wants a slightly looser ride.
Josh: “If you’re looking for a fin that’s loose but can still get you the longest hang ten of your life, this one’s for you. The purpose of this fin is to increase turnability without sacrificing hold on the nose, so we chose to scale the smaller size from 10″ up to 10.25″ to make up for the slimmer profile.”
