futures FREESTONE CONTROL
The Freestone Control fin is a large size Speed Controlling fin with a Ride Number of 3.0. Jack rides this fin when the conditions are punchy and he needs a little more stability. Controlling speed is the key to survival in heavier surf. The latest in speed controlling fins, the Control Series has added a layer of uni-carbon which provides all the stiffness you’d expect from a fiberglass fin with an added bonus of resiliency.

Speed Generating vs. Speed Control
A TOOL TO HELP YOU SURF BETTER
Using Ride Number is easy, you just have to understand the feelings of Speed Generating and Speed Control. On one end of the Ride Number scale is Speed Generating fins. These fins feel responsive and provide that extra spring most often wanted when the surf is lacking power. On the opposite side is Speed Control. These fins feel solid, engaged, and predictable providing that extra hold usually only needed when the surf is cranking. The middle ground is Balanced, offering a mix of the two extremes for an all around feel. Just remember, when you're pumping - Speed Generating, when the waves are pumping - Speed Control
