3DFins - Platinum (FCS) - Josh Kerr Moonrakerr
3DFins - Platinum - Josh Kerr Moonrakerr (FCS Base)
You Want drive?
You got it!
This fin is a must have in your quiver. The combination of the swept back rake combined with Dimple Technology, creates incredible drive, quick release through turns and sky burning potential. desination acceleration! The Dimple Technology enhances this already very fast design. You will find these extremely fast into and out of turns, super smooth through transitions and when you want to accelerate these will respond fast. Suitable for vast majority of conditions.

The Moonrakerr™ has been designed to give extra speed and drive both down the line and through critical turns.
Constructed in Fibre Reinforced Thermo-Polymer Composite.
*Computer flow Dynamic tests have proven the Dimples on the Moonrakerr™ increase Lift/Drive significantly, this gives a surfer the opportunity to gain more speed and with more speed comes the opportunity for more advanced maneouvres.
As we all now know, a Golf ball with Dimples will fly further than a Golf ball without.
What most of us don’t know is why? There are two main reasons:
- The Dimpled Surface reduces drag
- The Dimpled Surface improves Lift.
First a quick lesson in Hydrodynamics (Aerodynamics). There are two types of flow around an object: laminar and turbulent. Laminar flow has less drag, but it is also prone to a phenomenon called "separation." Once separation of a laminar boundary layer occurs, drag rises dramatically because of eddies that form in the gap. Turbulent flow has more drag initially but also better adhesion, and therefore is less prone to separation. Therefore, If the shape of an object is such that separation occurs easily, it is better to turbulate the boundary layer in order to increase adhesion and reduce eddies (which means a significant reduction in drag).
Dimples on golf balls turbulate the boundary layer. So we at 3DFINScience decided to test these principles and apply them to a Surfboard fin. With advanced Computer Flow Dynamic testing 3DFINScience compared two exactly the same fins, the Moonrakerr Dimpled fin and the same fin design without Dimples.
The tests were conducted by flow dynamics expert Darrin Stephens (formally of CSIRO) and the results were surprising. A Surfboard Fin with a smooth surface is much like a golf ball with a smooth surface, it has a Lamina flow over the surface. This works quiet well when going straight and at lower speeds, but when you start to turn and reach higher speeds the fluid starts to separate from the foil or fins surface.
