Origin combines the convenience of detachable fin functionality with the proven power & drive of traditional fixed fins.

DESIGN

The Origin system by FCS is designed for surfers who like the feel and performance of traditional fixed fins.

The concept itself was created by a group of like minded Sydney based surfers and designers craving a specific type of performance, with the added convenience of detach-ability. After years of external development FCS helped to refine the Origin system and fin range in preparation for the global release in 2013.

Below are some of the key features:

THE PLUG: 

- Hybrid construction of specialized polymer and PU foam that provides an exceptional bond to the blank and fiberglass laminate.
- The shape of the plug compliments the footprint of traditional rovings, and the overall shape of the surfboard. It also creates a curve that evenly distributes any extreme impact force.
- Overall size has been kept to a minimum so as not to interrupt the natural flex of the board. The plug length is 133.5mm or 5.3” (16mm shorter than Futures).
- Origin is the thinnest and lightest system on the market.

THE FIN: 

- The first true removal “glass on” fin. 
- Cant angle is built into the fin, not the box.
- Rovings are tightly tucked to minimise drag.
- Side fins feature a flat inside face to mimic traditional fixed fins.
- Fins are available in composite Glass Flex (GF) and Performance Core (PC).


THE SYSTEM: 

- Origin is a pre-glass system (installed before the board is glassed).
- Unlike most systems, the fin rolls in from the side; a recess detail in the fin marries with an undercut in the plug. 
- Screws pass through the fin and when tightened create an opposing force, completing the “lateral locking system”. 
- The roving base, combined with the lateral locking system, completely eliminates all movement at the base of the fin.  
- The perimeter of the fin base sits recessed within the plug, allowing for a seamless transition between the fin and the surface of the board, while enhancing water flow. 
- The stiff base translates to an extremely responsive fin setup that transfers the surfer’s energy directly into the fin
- Rovings translate to more drive through the turning arc, and smother rail to rail transitions.
