New Fins Won’t Make You Surf Better, Or Will They?
Meet FCS' new line for speed, power, flow, and lovers.
If you’re happy with stock fins, stop reading. But if you’re still here, it’s because you, like us, want a set of fins that you can feel a difference with. Because if you feel like you’re surfing better, doesn't that mean you are? Maybe. Perception’s one hell of a drug!
Introducing: The FCS II Essential Series, individual fins designed for speed, power, and flow – like the WSL scoring criteria. Four fins to fit four styles of surfing. For the tech nerds, here are the specifics:
The reactor: Designed for speed, tight turns and impressing girls who are probably watching their phones on the beach. These claws have a low sweep, which means they sit more upright and respond to redirection. Technically great if you’re into progressive manoeuvres or airs into the flats.
The performer: This is the well-balanced meal. All the food groups are represented: Speed, flow, and response. A great pick up if you’re not into thinking too hard about hardware selection but still want something that you can feel a point of difference in.
The carver: If you’ve dropped the un-ironic “Phoarr!” while making a swooping motion with your back arm every time you describe a turn, then the carver might as well have your name written on it (and what’s stopping you from breaking out the sharpie after picking up a pair). Ideal if you’ve ever said the words “best surfer” and “Taylor Knox” in the same sentence at some point in your life.
