3D Printed Fins Update

2014-11-15 Fin after useWith perfect wind conditions lately there has been plenty of kitesurfing – I love summer! But with that my 3D printed fins (check out the full story here) have had a good workout, probably close to 10 hours in the water.

As you can see in the photo the fins are still in top condition, just some grains of sand that have become embedded in the plastic. I have to admit even I’m surprised they haven’t snapped or simply de-laminated when slapping into the water off some huge jumps or being dragged through the sand in shallow conditions.

It’s still probably too soon to call but I’m feeling like this is a success. Remember if you want a lifetime supply for your own kitesurfing adventures, I’ve uploaded the file to Thingiverse for FREE! Just follow the link here.
