The original CI fin is designed to be surfed with boards that you'd surf in bigger, better open face waves, this new CI Upright fin has a higher rate of return and responsiveness, which means it’s great for beach breaks and smaller waves where you need to generate speed quickly. This Channel Islands collab fin is designed for maximizing speed and executing tight turns. The original, highly raked CI fin is more suited to classic down-the-line thrust and drawn out turns, the reality is that for most of us we're surfing smaller, weaker waves that need quicker turns to generate and maintain speed, and a fin that allows for more pivot, the CI Upright fin fills that gap.
The Performance Core (PC) construction is made using a multi-layered resin transfer molding process. The flex pattern in PC fins extends progressively from the base through to the tip, helping the surfer to maintain drive and hold through a turn. This versatile fin material is light and can be used in a variety of different conditions. The FCS II CI Upright PC fins are another step forward in using fintech to maximize your boards' performance. This excellent fin is best suited to more performance shapes with more rocker and deeper concaves.
PLEASE NOTE: These FCS II fins are NOT compatible with the original FCS and FCS Fusion fin plugs.
