Shapers Fins - Darc Drive - (5th Fin)
Shapers Fins - Darc Drive
The Darc Drive is a collaboration by professional shaper Stuart D’Arcy and the specialist fin company, Shapers on the Gold Coast of Australia. Inspired by the love of quads, Darcy designed this fin to bridge the gap between Quads and Thrusters. The Darc Drive adds extra drive and takes out the drift whilst keeping the speed and flow associated with quads. Therefore a boost to drive and control without adding the drag associated with a typical back fin.
With this fin you can also flip it around 180 degrees so the high point of the fin is forward thus moving the pivot point closer.
This fifth fin is Shapers answer to the FCS VS Knubster that Kelly Slater uses.
Material: Fibreflex(plastic composite)
Base: 4.25" (108mm)
Depth: 1.25" (32mm)
Totally necessary for quad rider!

This is the sickest addition to my boards - ever! I love the speed and rail sensitivity that my quad gives me but I don't like the drift. Having the D'arc drive gives me that little bit of control at the bottom and top of the wave that I need to drive me in and out of turns. I just used this last week in Haleiwa, on the North Shore in pumping 5-7 foot (Hawaiian) surf and it worked an absolute charm with both TC- Aqualines and Shapers Quad fins. This really brings out the quality of my quads, and I love it. Absolutely destroys the knubster in every way. If you have a quad- you need the Drive!
