Futures Fins, a long-term partner with M2O has pushed the envelope with the design of custom downwind paddleboard fins. This year, they have incorporated Beard’s artwork into a commemorative fin that only will be awarded to division winners from this year’s race.


“This is a special race – there is nothing easy about it,” said Futures Fins’ Founder Vince Longo.

“These paddleboarders need to be committed to the training necessary to cross the channel and Futures is committed to supporting their sport. We love the way Matt’s art came out on this year’s commemorative fin and we can’t wait to showcase it at this year’s race.”
