Deal now covers Sally for fins, leashes, covers, tailpads and more
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 22 April, 2015 - The team news continues for Surf Hardware International with the recent re-signing of Sally Fitzgibbons. Under the new multi-year agreement Sal will endorse the full array of FCS hardware including the fins and systems, traction pads, leashes, covers and other assorted accessories.
Sal has been endorsing both the FCS and Gorilla brands for a number of years, and following a strategic repositioning, is now 100% firmly aligned under the FCS banner which represents performance, innovation and progression.
“I’m excited to be expanding my deal with FCS. As my fin and hardware needs have evolved over the years it’s been a real advantage having access to premium products to keep me performing at my best”, commented Sally.
The new deal also includes an FCS Athlete Series traction pad and fin, both of which have been developed and tested by Sally, and are set to hit the market later in 2015.
“I really love the feel of my new signature pad; it’s the perfect size and indicator for knowing where my back foot is for each and every manoeuvre. Paired with my new signature fin which offers great release off the top, I think it’s the perfect combination”.
Being one of the most celebrated and determined surfers on the women’s tour with 8 WCT victories; Sally has proven that it’s only a matter of time before she claims her maiden world title.
She now joins a distinguished list of 100% FCS Hardware athletes including Gabriel Medina, Julian Wilson, Filipe Toledo, Harley Ingleby and Ryan Hipwood.
To date 21 WCT victories and 5 WSL World Titles have been won by surfers riding the FCS II system and fins.
