The FCS II Tom Carroll SUP Fin

by Chris D | May 05, 2015
Designed in collaboration with legendary waterman Tom Carroll, the new FCS II TC SUP Quad Set is designed for surf use and delivers pivotal control on rail and exceptional tail release off the top.

OVERVIEW
• Developed in conjunction with Tom Carroll.
• Ideal for high performance surf SUP’s.
• Small rear fins promote tail release.
• Performance Core (PC) construction.

PERFORMANCE
Tom’s quad set is designed to perform in a variety of different surf conditions ranging from 1 to 10 feet. With an emphasis on pivot, this set allows you to execute tight controlled turns on the wave face with smooth flowing transitions. The smaller rear fins allows more capable riders to release and slide the tail.

GEOMETRY
Side Fin:
Full bodied fin with minimal sweep angle allows for tight pivotal turns on the face, while a narrow tapered tip balances manoeuvrability and control when the board is set on rail or going through turbulent water. High area in the base produces exceptional drive and down-the-line speed. Inside Foil Technology (IFT) creates positive water flow over the fin and enhances overall response and feel on boards with more surface area.

Quad Fin:
Small stocky rear fin encourages a shorter arc and promotes easy tail release. 80/20 foil enhances turning stability while channelling water efficiently off the tail of the board.

CONSTRUCTION
Reliable and lightweight Performance Core (PC) construction is enhanced with stiff carbon inserts on the inside face of the fins. The stiff flex pattern produces immediate response when engaging a turn, which is an advantage on SUP’s that typically have higher volume.
