Stretch’s Buzz template fins work on any of the Buzz models shaped for small to everyday wave conditions in boards that have relatively wide tail templates (15.25”+ tail width and 8” +/- tail block), deep concaves and for those who like to power heavily off their rear foot on higher aspect ratio boards.

Scientific origin and theoretical ramblings of technical information:
Originally developed to harness the unparalleled super dynamic efficiency of the hydrodynamic variables utilized in the Mr. Buzz model developed by Nathan Fletcher, the Buzz template has found it’s place in the enormous surge of board models consisting of fuller/wider tails, increased surface area, deep concaves and ample rocker.
Concaves and more efficient planning area in the tails of surfboards can add substantial lift and at higher speeds it must still be controllable. Don’t be afraid of the large appearance of the fin itself. The swept back rake combined with the full base and stretch’s custom cambered foil will allow you to retain lateral stability at speed and generate drive and grip without feeling tracky. A predictable response and surprisingly quick feeling not often found in a larger fin set only add to the benefit of having the Buzz fins in your Mr. Buzz, Super Buzz or Buzzsaw.
Can be combined with stretch quad rears at 4.0” or 4.125” and even larger 4.25” to 4.375” symmetrically foiled rears depending on wave conditions, rider style and preference.
