STEP 4: FIN MATERIALS

Select a fin material to match your surfing.

Fins with more flex create a whipping action that helps lighter, more agile surfers generate and hold speed through turns.

Stiffer fins allow heavier & stronger surfers to push hard through turns without overpowering the fins.



STEP 5: SLIDE & GRIP

Within each fin family, you can fine tune your selection using the Slide and Grip scale.

FCS Fin Slide To Grip Ratio


Fins with more slide release easier, while fins with more grip offer more control.
