BENEATH THE SURFACE WITH LUKAS SKINNER
Surfboard fins play a significant role in shaping the performance of a surfer and their board when they unite on a wave. While the design of a surfboard holds its own allure, it is the fins that truly breathe life into a board. With the aim of unraveling the secrets behind fin templates, we reached out to some of the world's best surfers.
For the latest episode, we catch up with UK based junior ripper and World Rip Curl GromSearch Champion Lukas Skinner to talk his jump from medium to large fins and how they've allowed him to tap into more of his power.
"I find as soon as I jump onto a larger fin, like the Mick Fanning, it teaches you to hold your line and you still get all your drive and speed out of it. I think that's what you need when you're younger to teach you how to do it properly when you're older."
