Of the four samples selected from the Alkali library to help Josie Prendergast develop her own fin, the first one she picked up was always going to be a favourite.
In neat surf at The Pass with fins laid out on the sand, the traditional dolphin shape caught her eye first and became the measure for everything else she tried.
After 2 days, countless rides and some tweaks to outline and foil - the Josie fin was born.
Modified from an old Mick Dooley template, the Josie Fin is a reliable and versatile fin for most longboards.
* A fairly upright base with an even rake allows smooth turns and noserides.
* We shaved some area from the top half of the template, and foiled out the tip to loosen turns a little.
* Ideal for smaller and lighter surfers, or anyone looking for a dependable fin without too many surprises.
