Santa Cruz shaper Marc Andreini started shaping boards in Santa Barbara back in the early 60's. His "hull style" boards influenced by George Greenough became a very popular specialty. For the Andrenini 50th anniversary limited edition boards, True Ames made a limited run of custom volan multi color "D- Fins" A classic template for a classic shape. Check out the video above to learn more about Andreini Surfboards. Below is a shot of the custom limited edition fins in production.

Here is a clip of Adam Robertson riding Bamboo FCS fins by True Ames. A few clips from some fun surf at one of his home breaks in Victoria, Australia During the making of the surf movie Way of the Ocean: Australia. This is mainly shot at Winki Pop, an amazing right hander that just keeps peeling. This clip demonstrates how these fins can hold in to solid waves and give amazing drive. Adam Robertson is naturally a powerful surfer and it shows in his turns and cutbacks. These bamboo fcs fins that he is using are our Channel Islands template that we offer in Futures fins and FCS fins compatible bases.
These Bamboo fins are Hexcore and a Bamboo overlay. A great look and just as strong as all of our other Hexcore templates available for FCS fins and Futures Fins.

What are the best fins to use in summer surf conditions? We have a few to highlight on here. Also a few clips of Malibu, California's summertime surf mecca.
Every culture has a staple crop, a plant that has flourished for generations in the happiest and harshest conditions that nature presents. The Mayans had maize, and True Ames has the California Classic - a versatile design, moderate in area and rake, that will adequately nourish any board in any wave, especially the long peelers of Malibu.
You are frustrated. We understand. This confusingly agile silhouette just breezed through three insurmountable tubes, toes wrapped over the nose all the while. You can't go. You feel cheated. Consider new avenues. The silhouette is Josh Farberow, and he energizes his 50-50 rail logs with a flexible version of our California Classic.
