"The way I see it, FCS is unchallenged for the best system and fins available, so I couldn’t be happier to continue the great relationship while working closely on developing my fins even further." Julian Wilson
It’s no surprise the FCS II MF, Carver and AM templates were the most popular fins used by the WSL competitors at the J-Bay open this year. What do all these templates all have in common?
FCS is excited to announce the signing of 2014 Pipe Master and Triple Crown champion Julian Wilson to a 100% hardware deal with FCS. Julian will have a new signature FCS traction pad hitting the market, and having outgrown his signature fin is fine-tuning a larger fin template better suited to his stronger frame.
Designed and tested in collaboration with the world’s best surfers, the FCS Athlete Series Traction range has rider specific features for the ultimate in performance.
The FCS JW-1 is ideal for fast, radical surfing in punchy beach break conditions. Offering quick tail release due to the smaller centre fin, the FCS JW-1 is also great for performing airs, with an emphasis on rotation.
With FSC II now it's possible to go ‘Around the World with 4 Fins’, and be perfectly equipped to surf any type of wave. WATCH VIDEO
Designed in collaboration with ASP Tour Competitor Julian Wilson, the FCS II JW template is available in Medium and Grom sizes, and is ideal for fast, radical surfing in punchy beach break conditions.
FCS II was released back in March 2013, and since hitting the market has quickly become the new undisputed world standard fin system. The statistics speak for themselves, and to date no other fin system can lay claim to a single World Title.
