Overview: I actually love these fins. For me they work amazing especially in the local average beachies. The EA’s are a thruster set up, that are all about generating maximum speed. The feature that allows this is futures V2 foil technology which is on the inside face of your side fins and allows you to create more speed out of softer surf conditions. The carbon also gives them a super responsive feel with a lot of spring and rebound through your turns.


  • Carbon
  • V2 Foil Technology

Recommended Use: The EA Blackstix is a fin that I use whenever I need that extra help to generate speed. If the waves are a bit fat and don’t have much push I can’t go past them. I’ve found that especially in my smaller wave boards these fins are perfect.


  • Speed generating
  • Responsive
  • Simple yet stylish artwork

Cons: The only downfall with these fins would be they don’t have great hold and drive when the surf gets bigger and more power full. However, the EA’s were not designed for those types of conditions.
