FCS Fins

About FCS

FCS OR THE FIN CONTROL SYSTEM WAS THE BRAINCHILD OF BRIAN WHITTY BACK IN THE EARLY 90S. HIS VISION WAS TO DESIGN A SYSTEM WHICH WOULD THE ALLOW FINS TO BE REMOVED FROM FROM A BOARD TO MAKE TRAVELLING EASIER, WHILE ALSO GIVING THE SURFER THE CONTROL TO ALTER THE FEELING AND PERFORMANCE OF THEIR BOARD WITHOUT HAVING TO BUY A NEW ONE. THE PATENTED SIX-PIN SYSTEM WAS SIMPLE AND GENIUS IN EQUAL MEASURE, AND SINCE THEN HAS GONE ON TO BECOME THE INDUSTRY STANDARD.

IN THAT TIME FCS HAS HELPED RIDERS TO WIN OVER 30 ASP WORLD TITLES AND HAS GROWN INTO A HUGE GLOBAL SURF BRAND SELLING SOME OF THE FINEST FINS, LEASHES, SOCKS, BAGS, TAIL PADS, SOFT RACKS, TIE DOWNS AND ACCESSORIES AROUND.

TODAY, FCS FINS CAN BE FOUND ON THE BOARDS OF THE MAJORITY OF THE TOP NAMES IN SURFING, INCLUDING BIG HITTERS LIKE THREE TIMES ASP WORLD CHAMPION MICK FANNING, AS WELL AS TOLEDO, MEDINA, FLORES AND THE REST. THE BRAND USES THE UNIQUE FEEDBACK AND INSIGHT IT GETS FROM THE WORLD’S BEST TO INNOVATE AND DEVELOP NEW TECHNOLOGY THAT GIVES SURFERS THE SPEED, POWER AND CONTROL THEY NEED TO RIDE ANY WAVE.

Different fin systems to suit every rider

THE SURF BOARD FIN IS FCS’S BREAD AND BUTTER, AND THEY HAVE LED THE PACK IN MANY OF THE INDUSTRY’S BIGGEST STEPS FORWARD IN TERMS OF PERFORMANCE. THE ORIGINAL FCS I SYSTEM IS STILL IN USE TODAY, BUT HAS BEEN SUPERCEDED BY THE FCSII. THIS NEW GENERATION SYSTEM REQUIRES NO TOOLS AT ALL, BUT STILL HAS THE SAME SOLID HOLD OF THE ORIGINAL SYSTEM. THEY’VE EVEN MADE THEIR NEW SYSTEM BACKWARDS-COMPATIBLE, SO IF YOU BUY A BOARD WITH FCS II PLUGS, YOU CAN STILL USE YOUR OLD FCS I FINS.

EACH SYSTEM HAS A CHOICE OF DIFFERENT FINS AND CONFIGURATIONS TO SUIT EVERY BOARD, TYPE OF WAVE AND RIDING STYLE. THRUSTERS, QUADS, SPECIALITY OPTIONS, LONGBOARD-SPECIFIC MODELS – WHATEVER YOU’RE LOOKING FOR, YOU’LL FIND IT IN THE FCS RANGE. 
EACH FIN IS DIALLED IN WITH THE SIZE, SHAPE, RAKE, FOIL AND FLEX TO GIVE YOU THE EXACT BLEND OF SPEED, FLOW AND RESPONSE THAT YOU’RE LOOKING FOR. AND WITH THE FCS II SCREWLESS SYSTEM, IT’S EVEN EASIER TO MAKE CHANGES ON THE FLY – TO TRY NEW CONFIGURATIONS FROM ONE WAVE TO THE NEXT, OR ADAPT YOUR BOARD’S CHARACTERISTICS TO CHANGING SURF CONDITIONS AS THEY HAPPEN.

IT’S NO SURPRISE THAT FCS ARE ONE OF THE MOST TRUSTED FIN BRANDS ON THE PLANET.
