Futures Mayhem 3.0 Vapor Core Thruster
Thruster / 4.3 / Balanced
Handmade, Vapor Core features a woven carbon exoskeleton that has been preloaded under tension for strength and spark. Instead of using a low-density foam core to reduce weight, we’ve removed the core all together with a truly hollow core. The preloaded exoskeleton fibers, like a spark ready to ignite, yield instantaneous power transfer from your feet directly to the water for explosive power. The strong yet lightweight aerospace grade materials and hollow core provide quicker reaction times without sacrificing control and predictability.
“The Mayhem 3.0 is an all new template. With the trends in modern HP shortboards going towards more curve under the rear foot for critical pocket surfing, we felt the need for the fins to evolve with the board rockers. We wanted to add a bit more base, with more rake and a narrower tapered tip than our long-standing thruster template. The idea with the base and rake is more resistance and bite when deep into turns and to maintain drive through tight radius turns. The reduced tip area, with a tapered flex, adds release and freedom for quick transitions in and out of turns, when needed. We’ve been taking these fins to the wave pools for controlled, repeatable testing, and also worked with our crew of diverse sized, elite surfers for feedback and input.
This limited edition Mayhem 3.0 Vapor Core is available in our M/L (Medium/Large) template for typically sized full-grown surfers (150-190 lbs).”
