As an expressive platform for some of the most influential personalities in surfing to create and experiment with custom fins, Captain Fin Co. celebrates originality in surf lifestyle while progressing the sport in its own inventive way.

‘The Captain’, steered by the simple philosophy of “bringing fun back to the beach,” imparts his unmistakable panache to create a colorful assortment of Vans x Captain Fin Co. goods, unifying the distinctive DNA of two classic Southern California surf brands. The Vans x Captain Fin Co. collection features Captain Fin’s unique anchor logo and green color scheme fused with Vans’ iconic checkerboard accents, yielding a bold statement of modern-day surf style. The exclusive capsule is represented in three Vans footwear styles including the brand new “Costa Mesa” Surf Sider, the “Lanai” sandal, and the Classic Slip-On, which features a black/gray checkerboard pattern and custom Captain Fin artwork on the insole.

In addition to footwear, the Vans x Captain Fin Co. collection is accompanied by a thoughtful selection of Vans apparel featuring the signature logos and color schemes on a checkerboard boardshort, a carry-all style military rucksack complete with a laptop sleeve and plastic trim, a painter’s cap, and two premium tees.
