Futures Fins began in a garage in California in 1996.
The Longo brothers had a reputation for tackling challenging aerospace parts and fabricating hydrogen fuel cells for research, but in 1996 they decided to combine their technical know-how with something they loved. Surfing. They have always considered building locally extremely important, and now this allows us at Futures to dream up a fin, design it, cut it and surf it, all in a matter of hours under one roof in Huntington Beach. With this ability, we constantly evolve our designs, creating new feelings and new experiences. Sharing these new innovations with other surfers is what fuels our devotion to progression.
