Medium (65Kg - 80Kg / 145 - 175 Lbs).
FCS II Keyless Plug system fins - will not fit the FCS original 2 tab plugs.
Designed in collaboration with Nev Hyman, the Firewire template sits deep in the water and has minimal sweep (rake), meaning it has great pivoting capabilities, yet will hold nicely through turns. The significantly smaller centre fin provides additional tail release. FW fins feature a carbon tissue inlay and extra fibreglass layers making them amongst the stiffest in the FCS range.

The FW side fins sit really deep in the water; this produces exceptional drive and maintains hold when the board is on rail. If all three fins shared the side fin template, this set would feel really stiff, however the significantly smaller centre fin, combined with the lower sweep angle, maintains a modest level of pivot and tail release.
Overall this set will have a stabilising influence on your board, without restricting movement or feeling stiff and tight. The side fins provide exceptional speed off the mark and hold when driving off the bottom, while the smaller centre fin provides a
loose and free feeling off the top. Notably, it’s quite easy to break the turning arc at higher speeds and pivot tightly in the pocket with just the right amount of control. The balance between drive, hold and tail release is perfectly balanced for boards with a lower tail rocker such as the Sci-Fi by Tomo. The steadiness of the quad set is also ideal for larger hybrid boards, and surfers looking for a set that will feel fast and sturdy on the open face, and perform smooth, controlled turns.
By using carbon tissue layers and a large hex core we’ve achieved a softer, more forgiving flex compared to the previous generation of Firewire fins. The resulting aesthetic also ties back
to Firewire’s current surfboard technologies. This versatile PC construction delivers a consistent feel similar to a traditional fibreglass fin, but with the advantage of reduced weight. With a flex pattern that extends progressively from the base through to the tip, PC fins are reliable, very responsive, and can be used in a variety of different conditions.
