|For as long as there have been surfers, there has been an accepted standard of what was normal of finless redwood planks in the '20s, longboards in the '60s, single-fins in the '70s, thrusters in the '80s and '90s. But today, there is no standard; there is no norm. There is only a group of surfers that are going their own way. FIN is an examination of the current state of the art, a time in surfing culture when surfers are compelled to ride whatever they want in order to facilitate a style that suits them best. FIN is a study of the end of one mentality, a look at the current epoch of surfing history, and a celebration of a time in surf culture when what you ride means nothing, but how you ride it means everything.
