The MS-P Thruster (Pivot Template): The MS-P is my interpretation of fast and loose with quick directional changes and excellent hold. Get into the lip quickly with the upright template and medium fin depth without sacrificing down-the-line speed as you push off the large fin base. Pair them with your favorite Groveler for more pivot to offset the board’s wider outline and low rocker design. Couple the MS-P (Pivot) side fins with the MS-QDP (Pivot) Quad Rears for excellent speed, hold and maximum pivot.
• Large Fin Base (maximum drive)
• Medium Fin Depth (loose and responsive)
• Wide Tip (more hold)
• Smaller Center Fin (Keeps the board loose and playful)
• Upright Template (offers quick pivot)
• Fast Directional Changes
• Beach Breaks and Point Breaks
• Good hold at High Speeds
• Promotes Progressive Surfing
• Pair with MS-QDP Quad Rears for Maximum pivot

What sparked the idea of creating my own fin designs? After rigorous testing of so many fin templates over the last 5 years, I began researching specifically how the smallest detail would change the feel of a board. I compared fin after fin, but I could never find the combination of what I was looking for.
Most fin companies suggest a medium fin for my weight (160 lbs.). However, I have been riding a large fin for years. Why? I am looking for something specific. The more resistance I feel from a large fin base enables me to push harder and generate more speed through turns. However, the large fin goes deeper into the water producing more drag, (equaling less speed) and makes my board feel tight and less agile on the wave face.
So, my concept is hybridizing a Large fin base with a Medium fin depth.
The large fin base offers excellent resistance for surfers who like to push hard through turns for maximum drive. The medium fin depth enables surfers to retain the speed they generate through turns with less drag, keeping the board fast and loose.

Naked Viking “APEX Series” fins are made with a high strength fiberglass called G10 which is made by compressing layers of fiberglass and epoxy resin. We machine foil each fin to insure the highest performance of any fin available, regardless of the materials used. These are stronger, thinner, lighter and sexier. most similar feel to glass on fins.
