ESPN: Kelly Slater's fifth fin it's had a big impact this year.

Kelly Slater and his fifth wheel...As Mattison watched Kelly Slater tackle big Teahupoo on a quad, he paused. Throughout the year Kelly had been switching back and forth between thrusters and quads. Maybe, Mattison's little fin would create a middle ground for the champ.

Pretty Good Feedback on the Nubster....aka "Guitar Pick by 10x World Champion Kelly Slater

No feeling board I can remember. Ready to slay people! Thank you so much. That fifth fin just tightens and smooths the whole thing up.

Thank you Mad Dog!

The Nubster Fin......aka Guitar Pick Fin.

Testing the Nubster aka Guitar Pick Fin.....this little guy can add drive and control to your quad without "over finning it."

The Nubster and the Twinzer 5

The Latest board design by the crew here at Von Sol is the Twinzer 5.
This board is Soooooo Fast it will blow your mind.The twinzer has always been a very
fast fin configuration/design but at times it was out of control.I have been working on the nubster fin to ride with a number of different fin set ups especially quads.For this design,
the nubster cures the "slide out" issue
that this design suffered from in the past allowing you to put the peddle to the medal with
"no worries!"

Claim it! We love it!

Hi Sean - long overdue feedback on the shadow. I got a board from you last Summer - blue 5'10" shadow. In short I love it. I took it to Indo with me and rode it the whole time except for one day that was 12ft plus (face). The board is definitely the missing link between performance fish and performance shortboard. It holds the rail line like a fish on those nice drawn out arcs but also goes straight up and down, and a little sideways, on top turns/snaps. Most importantly it goes backside with no disconnect in how tight you want to draw your line - unlike the more fishy quads out there. Anyway Im fired up on the board - rode it in Indo, Aussie and now last few months in NorCal winter when I thought I might put it away for more standard shortboard. Im keen to order the double black diamond in a month or so, but just wanted to get some feedback and a couple photos back to you.
