Some Scurvy Shreds from Captain Fin Co.

Our buyers found these insane retro-style fins from Captain Fin Co. 

Taking art to a new venue, Captain Fin Co. makes some intensely insane, unique, and art-driven boards with a huge retro-influence. With these factors considered, it’s no stretch to say the team includes Alex Knost, Joel Tudor, and Cj Nelson to name a few. By far one of this years’ style drivers, whether they were going for that or not. 

‘Ere be Captain Fin Co., with fins that landed it, matey.
