    Watching black sails makes me want to visit Nassau. I heard they have a really good pirate museum.

    Honestly I don’t know, but I wouldn’t doubt it. Linz and I loved black sails! Great show...

    What’s the difference between the Foil and Flares? The Foil looked smaller in size - about a Med in Flares.

    I’m sure Nick will chime in and answer the question. The Flares have a little “how ya’ doin” at the tip of them.

    So first, "Foil", foil basically refers to a shape or object when talking fluid mechanic/dynamics. Essentially a foil creates lift at a certain angle of attack whereby the force generated perpendicular is greater than the drag. Much like a airplane wing, you have one side in which water flows past faster than the other. All fins are foils and have foils, the shape of your surfboard, the contours of the rails and deck are also referred to as foils; hydrofoils, water wings, etc., are also just call foils. Our "Vectored" foil and 'Flare' fins, both have similar over all foils, they have a fairly typical convex shape on the outside and a mix of concave, flat and convex contours on the inside (commonly referred to a a Vector foil, as opposed to a flat foil or symmetrical foil, or 80/20 foil). The contours change the way water molecule move around the fin, playing with lift and drag, changes in pressure. Our "vectored foil fin" was one of the first wakesurf specific fins we brought out and we always called it the vector to indicated it has a vectored foil versus a symmetrical (like center fins and traditional twin fins, both side with similar convex shapes) or flat (flat inside and convex outside), 80/20 or 60/40 (similar to symmetrical only the inside foil is not as convex as the outside, not truly symmetrical).

    The way to think about our standard vectored foil fin is as an improvement of to say a general surf template like the blackstix f4. It is similar in size and template, with a slight wider base for drive, less sweep for faster turns and tighter pocket turns and a more progressive cant (lean towards the rail). The flare fin takes all things great about our vectored foil fin, and combines it with a slight more aggressive template with a little more overall fin area, and a double cant (the tip is tilted further out, improving lift and release). In simple terms you get a supercharged speed generating fin, that allows for similar release of a smaller fin. More fin=more speed. Less fin=looseness. Looseness is often confused with speed/drive. People think loose boards are fast, because they feel loose and easily moveable, but in practical terms you are not actually moving faster.

    Probably clear as mud.......

    Man that is such a great looking boat!!! Do you have a pair of 8s and a pair of 10s on the tower or is it just the depth of them on the tower?
