FCS II Fatboy 8” 9” and 10” review
I love the Fatboy fin. I have tried so many other styles of single fins. And I now just ride this fin. For me it seems to work in all waves and longboards. I have ridden the Fatboy on 12 foot Nettleton gliders, CJ Nelson Classic 10’, Neo Classic 10’ and Parallax 9’9”.
I like the smaller base area near the board. This allows it to be loose. The upright nature of the fin allows you to turn hard. It is easy to pivot around the fin. And the bulb at the end really holds in turns.
I love changing between the 8”, 9” and 10”. The 8”
seems to have about half the surface area of the 10”. I have used all sizes in all wave heights. Anything above 4 foot I use the 9 or 10”. On smaller days the 8” is fun. You can even break the fin out and slide the tail.
Big tip. Always apply the rubber strips to the bottom of the fin that FCS provide. I have lost two fins because I forgot to put it on. It provides dampening. And prevents the fin coming loose and falling out. Even if it is tight fit apply the rubber strips.
Please come out with some new colours for the Fatboy please FCS!!!
