SW500 – SW540 fins
Take surfing up
Improving the efficiency of surf-board fins, and increase speed and relaunch through biomimicry
If you surf, you know how difficult it is to detect the subtle differences between fin models, as they tend to be very similar and haven’t changed much since the invention of the Thruster.
S-WINGS have made it possible to move up a gear by rigorously analysing hydrodynamic behaviour.
Xabi and Philippe had reached some interesting results by modifying existing fins, and were looking for help to transform their prototypes into mature, market-ready products.
The sizing of materials and the choice of process was an iterative work carried out in parallel with the hydrodynamics and style of the product, using finished element calculations and true production material prototypes.
The brand now sells their products worldwide and we are always delighted to model the new products to complete their range.
