MFC Quad Fins

The infamous Maui Fin Company have just released their new fins for quad set ups.

With a huge team of PWA riders pushing the boundaries in waves, we knew it wouldn’t be long before MFC had their fins ready for anyone wishing to ride a quad fin board. With stacks of experience and a hardcore R&D team, we’re pretty sure these fins will perform to a World Cup winning standard.

Over to Pio from MFC to explain all:

“MFC, in conjunction with Kauli Seadi (JP, NeilPryde, Mormaii, MFC) and Keith Teboul (Goya sails, MFC), developed the new QUAD set up for wave boards. It was always in our minds to seek something that could be approachable for the everyday sailor, and it looks like we reached our target with the QUAD fins set-up.

The board has drive. The different foil sections on the centre and side fins drastically reduce the drag, which make upwind performances superior. This in turn makes riding waves easier for everyone. The board feels looser yet drives harder at the same time without compromising speed. It makes wave riding more forgiving. 

The board can be pushed with the front or back foot and the board and fins will continue to hold your style. We tested this set-up in different conditions, side shore, side-off, and on shore light winds and the result was amazing.

We had to design and change many fins to reach the shape that we put in production. Our 25 years of fin knowledge together with 2 of the best wave sailors in the world, brought us to the next level of design and performance of the QUAD.

We do not choose fins looking at the size/length, but at the surface area we are using.

For 2010 we came up with these 2 different set-ups:

QS-300 for a 85/95 litre wave board from 4.0 to 5.5

QS-250 for a 70/85 litre wave board from 4.0 to 5.0

Fins will be available soon, but for now we can make custom fins Made in Maui.
