Check out the FCS II PC Carbon

Check out the FCS II PC CarbonCheck out the FCS II PC Carbon fin range which we have full stock of in store at Zak Surfboards.  This relatively new version of this fin range features a whole new lay-up of carbon for each of the different templates.  This new layup serves to enhance their performance with a finer tuned flex from the base of the fin right through to the tip.   This gives each fin template a different axis point for flex enhancing acceleration when they load up through turns.

Check out the FCS II PC CarbonThe carbon at the base of the fins in the FCS II PC Carbon Range has been replaced with Innegra inserts, this gives these fins a more holistic flex along the entire length of the fin without sacrificing strength.

FCSII Neo Glass Fin Range

FCSII Neo Glass Fin RangeIf you’re looking to give your board a bit of extra Zip in the weak summertime waves then you should take a look at the FCSII Neo Glass Fin Range,  Made utilizing a unique combination of materials and precision engineering precesses developed by FCS to provide consistently accurate & predictable pro standard performance.

FCSII Neo Glass Fin RangeFCSII Neo Glass Fins are manufactured using a 50/50 combination of long strand milled fiberglass with high grade industrial nylon.  This creates a light, stiff material that possesses superior memory recall to traditional fiberglass (meaning the material returns to a neutral position quicker once flexed).

FCSII Neo Glass Fin Range FCSII Neo Glass Fin RangeThe Neo Glass construction adds a real bit of spark to your board in smaller or weaker conditions.  These lightweight, molded fins have a consistent lively, snappy and responsive feel underfoot.   “Twangy” would be a good way to describe these FCSII Neo Glass fins – they flex but snap back with quite a bit of energy, hence the zippy, lively feel.

FCS II Reactor PC Carbon

FCS II Reactor PC CarbonThe FCS II Reactor PC Carbon is a fin that will significantly tighten the turning circle of your surfboard.   The upright template combined with the stiffer Performance Core/ Carbon Fibre construction gives you a positive feeling, quick reacting fin – hence the name ;)

Great for short, peaky waves – you’ll be able to at least add another turn or two to each wave when you have a set of these in your board.  Particularly useful in flatter rockered surfboards – if you are finding it hard to draw the arcs you want on a flatter board, these can really help you.  Popular with those who like to do tight, snappy maneuvers tight in the pocket of the wave, rather than running out onto the open face to carve big, drawn out arcs.

FCS II Julian Wilson PG

FCS II Julian Wilson PGAnother of our most popular selling thruster sets  is the FCS II Julian Wilson PG. This medium sized thruster set features a nice medium sized neutral side fin template, with a smaller center fin.

Having a smaller back fin in a thruster set significantly tightens the turning circle of your board – compared to having a thruster set with all fins the same size.  The side fins become dominant,  making this fin set ideal for snappy short arc turns and releasing the tail.

The fiberglass construction and bigger side fine ensure that you don’t sacrifice drive and speed down the line.  The  positive yet stable feeling you get from an all glass fin means that you feel solid leaning into you bottom-turns, yet feel lively off the top due to the smaller back fin.  Loosen up your board without sacrificing drive with a set of these and feel the difference.

FCSII Carver PC Carbon

FCSII Carver PC CarbonThe FCSII Carver PC Carbon is one of our more popular fins with customers at Zak Surfboards.  This fin has an elongated/raked back shape which really helps you project down the line on wally waves, as well as hold speed through long arcing turns. The controlled flex that the carbon construction provides, ensures that this fin has a stable but positive feel to it – particularly in waves with a bit of push. The perfect fin for good days on the SurfCoast.

People often grab this fin to put in their all round surfboard for good/bigger days here in Victoria or for their trip to the tropics. Although this fin is available in bigger sizes, Medium tends to be the go to size for most unless you are a solid build or have a board with a lot of tail area.

FCS II PC Carbon Tri Accelerator

FCS II PC Carbon Tri AcceleratorThe FCS II PC Carbon Tri Accelerator in a Medium size is another of our most popular selling fins at Zak Surfboards.  This fast, drivey fin is very complimentary to the wally, long waves that we have in Victoria. These are also a great choice for boards with more tail rocker, or to get a bit more speed & drive out of you everyday shortboard.

FCS II PC Carbon Tri AcceleratorGenerally speaking  for drive, projection & speed down the line many people opt for a more raked fin template.  This extra rake in a fin’s shape does make your turning circle larger & more drawn out. The FCS II Accelerator template gives you the speed and projection of a raked back fin while still allowing for a tight turning circle when you put your board on rail.

The key to this extra drive, projection & speed down the line in the FCSII Accelerator is the placement of the fin relative to the finbox.  The FCS II Accelerator fin template sits a little further back towards the tail than many of the other fin templates – this further back position = speed & drive (although this can also make a board a bit stiffer & harder to turn).  The less raked/more upright shape of the Accelerator means that it’s turning circle is still quite tight.  In effect, you get the best of both worlds – extra speed & drive with a tight turning circle.

A touch on the bigger side that many other medium sized fins & the stiffer PC Carbon construction also makes this fin a great choice in bigger surf on your day to day shortboard.
