Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 3 November, 2014 - Surf Hardware International has launched its latest fin range under the Gorilla brand. This follows SHI’s ongoing strategy to separate its two premium hardware brands FCS and Gorilla, targeting two different segments of the market.
The new Gorilla fins fit the new FCS II system, are constructed in premium Performance Core (PC) construction, and feature a variety of colourful and unique graphics. Graphic updates will appear seasonally across the new fin range, and will tie back to the already established Gorilla pad and leash hardware categories.
