The Mod Keel is a highly versatile template. Suited to the new breed of short, performance fish, gliders, long fish and anything in between.
When designing the Mod Keel, our aim was to stay true to the traditional Steve Lis style keel but add more spark and freedom to carve tighter arcs.
We came up with a traditional keel curve on the front edge but more rake on the trailing edge. This means you can hold those flowy high-lines all you like but also carve through tight parts of the wave without skipping or losing edge control.
A low profile and raked outline allow the Mod Keel to flow through tighter turns without sacrificing down-the-line flow.
There is something special about owning a surfboard with glass-on fins. They feel solid and engaged underfoot, plus they look fantastic and earn respect from core lords.
Our glass-on fins are based on our best selling templates. We give them a rough sand finish which will provide a solid bond to your board. The laminator will thank you.
The team at Alkali Fins are proud of our history creating fins for the world's best shapers, and our template library is a history lesson in fin design. And if you've never given it a go before, we encourage everyone to get out in the back shed and make yourself a board. Once your board is shaped, hand the laminator some Alkali Glass-ons, and you're set.
