“It was always in our minds to seek something that could be approachable for the everyday sailor, and it looks like we reached our target with the QUAD fins set-up. The board has drive. The different foil sections on the center and side fins drastically reduce the drag, which make upwind performances superior.

This in turn makes riding waves easier for everyone.  The board feels looser yet drives harder at the same time without compromising speed.   It makes wave riding more forgiving.  The board can be pushed with the front or back foot and the board and fins will continue to hold your style.  We tested this set-up in different conditions, side shore, side-off, and on shore light winds and the result was amazing. We had to design and change many fins to reach the shape that we put in production. Our 25 years of fin knowledge together with 2 of the best wave sailors in the world, brought us to the next level of design and performance of the QUAD”, Pio Marasco, MFC owner, stated.

For 2010 MFC came up with these 2 different Quad set-ups:

QS-300 for a 85/95 liter wave board from 4.0 to 5.5

QS-250 for a 70/85 liter wave board from 4.0 to 5.0

Fins are available since October 2009.
