Kite-Specific FCS II Signature Fin

My signature kitesurfing fins are now available!

Kite-Specific FCS II Signature Fin

I've been working with FCS for over 10 years now, and over the past two years we've been developing the world's first kite-specific fin. They're finally ready to go and I'm so proud to see them out there.

Projects like this are one of the best things about what I do. There's nothing better than testing different products and working with designers to refine them and give other riders the best experience in the water. 

A lot of hard work has gone into this product from all of us and it's been awesome working with the team at FCS.  These fins are made from the best materials and designed especially to withstand kitesurfing's high speed and pressure. But we haven't neglected surf-performance either; this fin is still responsive enough to use for regular surfing.

I predominantly ride a thruster setup because I feel it works best in the widest range of conditions; it's predictable and controlled. I still ride a quad in certain conditions, however I chose to work with FCS specifically on a thruster. If you're interested in getting yourself a quad as well, I recommend an FCSII carver quad rear set as an addition. These work perfectly with my fins and I actually got a lot of inspiration from the FCSII carver fin.
