Looking for the two front fins but NOT in the molded construction. Apparently, these were made by Rainbow Fin Company with the honey comb, composite material at one time.

It is these but NOT molded:

i spoke to Rainbow Fin Company and was told that these fins would be made available in composite (non-molded) material around March 2019 or so. there may be some lurking in a surf shop somewhere but i cannot seem to find 'em.

I had about six sets of these in fg, hand tuned by shawd bc my otr pair hummed like a mfer. The best pair still hummed when I rode them in oh waves. Sold them. Interesting today since foils are taking off.
