Wingnut developed his Longrake as a traditional longboard fin, not just a traditional longboard noserider fin. The Longrake has, not surprisingly based on its name, a more pronounced rake to it as the fin curves backward that, along with the relatively thinning profile of the fin to its tip, ensures your longboard will maintain the maneuverability you need to hit those bottom turns in order to get in perfect position to trim across the face of waves. Yet this fin still has plenty of hold that will allow you to, like Wingnut, step your way (cross or otherwise) to the nose of you longboard.
This fiberglass fin comes in 3 sizes: 8”, 9” and 10”. It is suited for really any size longboard, and can be inserted into a tri fin setup with two side bites. General rule of thumb is 9” fin for 9’ longboard and 10” fin for 10’ longboard. Note that we cannot guarantee the color of the fins available as each fin is handmade in California.

About Wingnut: Wingnut aka Robert Weaver is a throw back to an era gone by, a longboarder with serious soul and style. He surfed his way into the mainstream with his role in Bruce Brown’s sequel, the Endless Summer II, retracing the steps of the original’s Mike Hynson and Robert August, surfing places like South Africa, Bali and Costa Rica, among others. He followed that up with roles in a number of other surf vids, including Step Into Liquid and Chasing Dora. Based on his extensive surf knowledge and water time logged, he’s one of the most knowledgeable surfers around, and has developed a line of longboard fins with Rainbow Fins to prove it.
About Rainbow Fin Company: Rainbow was started back in 1968 in Santa Cruz, California, by a group of Santa Cruz surfers who were looking for fins to ride for their own boards and to sell to others in the surfing community. Since then, for over four decades and counting, and through the evolution of fin setups, designs and constructions, Rainbow has been relied on by surfers throughout the country and around the globe to provide them with the perfect fins for any conditions. Whether your go-to is a longboard or shortboard (or a SUP), a single, twin, thruster, quad, or five fin setup, or have FCS or Futures, Rainbow has you and your surfboards covered.
