FCS II Kolohe Andino KA Fin

by Chris D | Nov 07, 2017

SAME GEOMETRY, NEW LOOK

The new FCS II KA fin has a new, more mature aesthetic that ties back to his signature traction pad, yet the geometry and performance of the fin remains the same. Available in Small, Medium and Large sizes.

PERFORMANCE

Sitting in the Accelerator family, Kolohe’s signature fin is suited to fast, explosive surfing in punchy waves.

Considered an ‘All Rounder +’, this fin has a relatively neutral sweep angle, so it’ll provide a balance of speed, flow & response with added control.

The best way to describe Kolohe’s style of surfing is fast and explosive. He likes to push hard off the bottom and perform dynamic turns on and above the lip. The well balanced nature of the KA template facilitates this style of surfing perfectly.

In comparison to the Performer template, Kolohe’s fin has a longer base, a touch more rake, and flat foil on the side fins which is great for making fast directional changes. The sweet spot for this fin is when the waves have a little more size, up to double overhead.

CONSTRUCTION

Performance Core (PC) construction delivers a consistent feel similar to a traditional fiberglass fin, but with the advantage of reduced weight. The stiff flex pattern extends progressively from the base through to the tip helping the surfer to maintain drive and hold through a turn. PC fins are reliable, very responsive, and can be used in a variety of different conditions.
