  • Jordy Smith Fins

    Wassup Everyone!!!

    Anyone got a chance to try the Jordy Smith fins out yet??? I'm wondering how it performs as a thruster and as a Quad setup (e.g. Jordy front + Controller rear, Jordy front + any size S fin, etc).

    ALOHA!!

        Chris, I'm thinking it might work well as a quad...just gotta find some good trailers. Since base is huge it might be good for those weak knee to chest high waves! :D

              I got a set and I really like them. I really loved the AM2 futures. The Jordys seem to release a lot better, with all the drive that you get in the AM2s. They are my new favorite.

                MeanGreen, that's exactly what I want to hear! :D Have you tried them in a quad configuration as well? I'm looking for a new setup for my potatoes.

                  Like them in my Spitfire. Only surfed in thruster. The base is huge! The leading edge of the base partially covers the screw hole for the fin boxes. You can get em on okay but it makes it a two step process (slightly tighten, push fin all the way in, fully tighten). My only caveat is that I typically am on a slightly shorter board for my weight so I typically can get away with more beefy fins. Your mileage may vary. Good luck!

                    LeftLane, the fins look sick! I got the same size board, 508 spit. I just ordered a set of Jordys...anxiously waiting. thanks for the tip!

                      Indeed!!! those fins pack some meat right there, Pretty raked as well but with a nice release off the tip, they look pretty interesting indeed

                          If I am not mistaken Jordy is around 90kgs. His fins are huge and with you being much shorter and much lighter (77kgs) you will struggle to turn those massive fins. I am 85kgs and am a bit wary of buying them. Let us know how you go but IMO they are to big for you by a long way as a straight up thruster set. I understand if you are looking to use them as BIG fronts on the potato...that kind of makes sense but as a thruster in your Spit..I just dont know.

                            FW -Fan,
                            I'm testing the Jordys fronts and Rusty R1 rears on my Spud right now.

                            Next test will be on my spitfire: Jordy front and Rusty R1 center (M size). With this setup, i think i'll be able to turn board and release fins (hopefully...).

                            I'll keep you guys posted!

                            ALOHA!!
