Fins by Donald Takayama


MTP Fin

MTP Fin

 

A true classic, pivot style fin for more tradtional square tail boards. The MTP will help with noseriding and freeing up the tail of a heavy, single fin log. Can also be used on any other type of board for a more tradtional feel or if you want the tail to really hold in when on the nose.

Available size: 9", 9.5" and 10"

DT Pivot Fin

DT Pivot Fin

 

Donald’s tried and tested DT template is used in a wide variety of his shapes and designs. An excellent fin for someone looking to free up the tail of their 2 + 1 setup longboard, the more upright design allows the tail to pivot a little mote through turns. Also excellent for a single fin on smaller, narrow tailed single fins. 

 

Finger Fin

Finger Fin

 

Another of Donald’s tested and proven designs. This is Donald’s preferred fin in most boards he rides. Whether it’s his 9’10” Speed Shape, or his 6’0” Scorpion, it handles anything thrown at it. With a long, raked out shape and plenty of surface area this fin holds in and brings the board around quicker than any other. Use it in single fins and 2 + 1 setups and feel the difference of the Finger fin.

RP Fin

RP Fin

 

A great fin whether looking to noseride or make your board turn a little quicker. Nice wide base gives plenty of drive, while the raked outline and narrower tip gives great release when turning. Perfect for loosening up a tighter feeling retro log, or giving solid feel to a rickety, wobbly feeling tail.

Halo Fin (twin fin)

The Halo fin was inspired by the Stand Up Paddle boards and wanting to make something very unique and original. Donald wanted to make a fin that would be a lot easier to turn while riding such a massive board. The fins have a very unique shape with the front edge being flat and back edge curved. It almost gives the perspective of the fins being backward, but ironically makes the board turn much easier and forgiving. You don't need to step all the back on the tail like traditional fins, but are able to turn the board a little more further up on the board. While doing R&D on the fins, DT has created many variations of the fin to complement all different kinds of boards, from standard thrusters, mid-lengths, and Longboards, the Halo fin covers them all. Donald makes 14 different size halo center and side fins for endless combination and experimentation. It's a must have for all surfboard quivers.
