With FCS II now it's possible to go ‘Around the World with 4 Fins’, and be perfectly equipped to surf any type of wave. How does the Essential Series range work?
The Essential Series fin range consists of 4 thuster templates and 3 quad templates, all of which are available in different sizes and constructions. Each template has been named to reflect the type of performance it delivers. Essentially a surfer chooses a fin template based on the waves they’re surfing and the performance they desire, then they choose the correct size fin for their weight, it’s that simple!
FCS II REACTOR
: Fast reacting fin with an upright template for surfers who like performing tight radius turns in the pocket. FCS II PERFORMER
: Versatile template designed for surfers who like to strike a balance between speed and manoeuvrability with flow between turns. FCS II ACCELERATOR
: Functional template with flat foil on the side fins designed for surfers who like to attack the wave and surf with energy & power. FCS II CARVER
: Elongated fin designed for power surfers who like to push hard against their fins, draw out their turns, and carve on the open face.
Inspiration for the FCS Essential Series fin range came from surfers craving a family of fins that not only simplified the fin selection process, but could clearly deliver specific performance advantages.
By applying 20 years of knowledge working with surfers, shapers and experts in hydrodynamics, FCS has combined the essential elements of performance and design into four fin templates. The result is precision engineering in its purest form. Each fin has a purpose, and every design element has been infused into the fin for a reason.
