Jonas Claesson Northcore centre fin collection

Northcore have long admired the work of surf artist and illustrator Jonas Claesson so we were stoked when he accepted our invitation to collaborate on a collection of our longboard centre fins. Jonas hand picked a selection of his favourite designs and we produced the water transfer printed fins based on our classic 9″ fibre glass fin. The results are stunning! The fins are 100% functional but also stand alone as individual works of art. They are collectors pieces which look amazing in a home, work or retail setting.

Jonas Claesson said of the collaboration “Northcore reached out about getting some artwork onto fins and I thought it sounded like a very fun and cool project! We worked together on selecting the artwork and getting the quality to a level that we where all stoked on, and really happy with the result!”

Jonas is originally from Stockholm, Sweden. He mixes strong references from his new home in Australia with his Scandinavian roots. In his colorful drawings, moose, polar bears, reindeers, seals and surfers cohabitate in a wonderful world. His traditional hand drawn illustrations are sometimes digitally colored, resulting in a bold and expressive style.

The Northcore Slice/Jonas Claesson collection centre fins are fibre glass and resin moulded for exact tolerances. The shape is a classic centre fin template for use in the widest variety of conditions.
