Beau Nixon and his winning combination

by Chris D | Mar 26, 2013
Congratulations to FCS Team Rider Beau Nixon who has just taken out the Men’s Stand Up Paddle board (SUP) Pro final, at the Australian Longboard Surfing Open at Kingscliff NSW.

After the event, Beau commented on his wining combination:
“For this contest I was running the FCS MF-1s thruster set in my SUP. The flex in the top of the fin allows for release off the top, and will hold a line through snaps and cutbacks. The flat foil works to slice through bumps in the water, creating a smoother and more controlled feel. A perfect all-round fin, the FCS MF-1 is my go to fin no matter what the conditions."

FCS Team Rider Justin Holland also put in a strong performance, finishing in 2nd place with a score of 15.70
