Burleigh Heads based 3DFINS has picked up a 2020 Australian Good Design Award (Sport and Lifestyle) for their soon the be released ‘soft’ fin. The brief was to create a fin that had to perform at an advanced level while being safe and reducing the chance of injury. The concept was to create a fin that bridged the gap between high performance fins constructed from a hard inner core and prone to cause injury and the rubbery, low performance fins commonly found on learn to surf softboards. 3DFINS solution was to create a soft fin using their patented dimple technology on the outer soft skin that is durable, UV protected and can be applied to any fin or keel design and can be made from recycled or eco-friendly materials.
