Be Philanthropic, Ride Pink Hardware
New claws and pads from FCS and Julian Wilson.
Do you like buying new gear, appreciate signature lines from exceptionally good surfers, and enjoy feeling good about yourself after making a purchase, all at once? Well, FCS has something for you: Julian Wilson’s “pink” set of fins and traction.
Some background: Jules’ mom was diagnosed with breast cancer some years ago, which obviously had a big impact on him. But instead of sitting idle, Jules went out of his way to work with the Australian Breast Cancer Association, moving on to more localised charities as well, raising funds to both help his mom and others struggling with cancer. To help with this, he’s paired with FCS — rocking pink hardware that is available to the public — through the past to donate hardware proceeds to breast cancer research and recovery. This year is no different, as Mr Wilson will be walking up to Snapper Rocks with pink FCS gear once again to continue spreading awareness. With a majority of profits from related hardware purchases going specifically to Noosa Hospital as well.
On top of being for a good cause, the gear itself definitely works (you might have seen his mental edit earlier this week), so it’s certainly worth throwing your extra cash at. Check it out on the FCS online store and at selected retailers. You won’t be feeling any buyers remorse after picking up these goodies.
