BENEATH THE SURFACE - EPISODE 3 WITH MATT CHOJNACKI
Surfboard fins play a significant role in shaping the performance of a surfer and their board when they unite on a wave. While the design of a surfboard holds its own allure, it is the fins that truly breathe life into a board. With the aim of unraveling the secrets behind fin templates, we reached out to some of the world's best surfers.
For the third episode, we catch up with world-renowned longboarder Matt Chojnacki to talk through his eclectic quiver, favourite fins and how he's looking for something to cover him in everything from two to twenty foot.
“FCS has allowed me to explore all these different boards and use different equipment to the best of my ability from literally two-to-20 feet. It's the journey I'm on - surfing all boards, all waves and feeling the connection with the mind, the body, the board and the fins.”
