Not sure what you mean. So the two links above don't cover your needs? Oh wait, do you mean the centre fin to a futures adaptor? If so no, but I haven't looked that deep into it. Maybe your only option here is to go with FCS adaptors all round and ditch your futures.....its only money!



yep, after a centre fin to a futures adaptor. haha...only money. You may have graduated from the same school as my wife.


That's because she is well educated and quite right , its only money !!

Speak with Troy direct from C-Drives , he hooked me up with an Longboard adapter for my Smik
Love the C-Drives set up as a Twinny

Anyone yet come across a Futures Longboard Fin Adapter you can purchase (i.e not home made)? I have a Jimmy Lewis and while I love the board, the fin setup is very frustrating if you want to go thruster and stick with one type of fin plug (i.e. not split sets)

Download the file and 3D print it. Many 3D printer places can go straight to the URL and print it. The holes and slot clean out really easilly with a pick or small screw driver. The pin from any of the crappy black plastic fins that come on generic boards pushes right in. the set screw hole is perfect size. Just heat the screw with a lighter and it threads right in. Fits really snug. The plastic along the side is really thin, and depending on the plastic, will crack horizontally, but not a big deal as it's in tension. Working like a champ.

thx. I work with a business that has a pretty fancy 3D printer so I'll give it a go.

i just started surfing a set of 'large'' G10 epoxy in my 9'1 H.P. surfboard. The G10 is ridic, i am selling all my glass fins .. gone. The C-drive template itself is seamless performance ,wow. I reckon you would need XL'S all day in a SUP, especially on the sides.
