FCS launches Julian Wilson FCS II JW template

 

 

Industry Updates

New fin comes in medium and grom sizes

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 12 December, 2014 - 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.

OVERVIEW
-    Developed in conjunction with Julian Wilson
-    Available in Medium and Grom sizes
-    Smaller center fin for quick tail release
-    Ideal for beach breaks
-    Performance Glass (PG) construction

GEOMETRY
The JW side fin template has a very neutral sweep value, moderate-to-long base length, and a slightly pointed tip. This versatile and well balanced template offers a consistent feel in small to medium size waves.  

The centre fin has a very low sweep value of just 31°, and in comparison to the side fins is almost 10% smaller in area. For this reason, the JW template offers great tail release.

PERFORMANCE 
Julian’s fin is ideal for fast, radical surfing in punchy beach break conditions. Offering quick tail release due to the smaller centre fin, this dynamic thruster set is also great for performing airs, with an emphasis on fast rotation. 

The sharp leading edge combined with a flat foil on the side fins allow surfers to turn in a very tight radius in the steepest parts of the wave. 

CONSTRUCTION 
Machine cut from layered fiberglass, Performance Glass (PG) fins have a rigid, highly responsive flex pattern that's isolated towards the tip of the fin. These fins have remarkable memory properties, and are widely used by pro level surfers because the integrity of the flex is maintained under immense force, and in the most extreme of conditions and situations.
