All fins in the FCS II longboard fin range now feature the tool-less technology
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 17 October, 2016 - One of Europe’s most decorated longboarders, Antoine Delpero, has extended his hardware deal with FCS for a further 2 years. Having been a valued member of the FCS longboard team for many years, Antoine was keen to continue the relationship.
“I’m super excited to sign this new contract with FCS. For me FCS has always had the best fin systems in the industry, with the best fin models”.
Having access to the full array of FCS hardware including fins, traction, leashes and covers, was a major drawcard in Delpero’s decision, however the convenience and performance of the new FCS II Tool-Less Longboard Fins, was also a determining factor.
“Even more today, the new FCS II LB fins have changed everything for me. The performance is exceptional, they are so easy to use and travel with. Being able to customise your board in seconds by adjusting the centre fin position is also so valuable”.
All fins in the FCS II longboard fin range now feature the tool-less technology, including Antoine’s signature FCS LB fin. Historically, the Delpero fin has been one of the best-selling FCS longboard fins due to the versatility of the template, and its popularity amongst performance longboarders.
“I’m very proud to have my signature fin in FCS Longboard fin range. For me, this fin is the best compromise for a central fin in any kind of surf conditions”.
While he is best known for his success on a longboard, Antoine is also regarded as an accomplished hybrid surfer on SUPs, retro shapes and regular shortboards. For this reason, he is considered a true waterman, and another reason why he is highly valued as an FCS rider.
With this latest deal Antoine’s secures his position on the FCS team alongside World Longboard Champion Harley Ingleby, and rising longboard stars like Jack Entwistle.
