Understanding FCS’s Fin Families

FCS has been a leader in the removable fin industry for decades, and each year they find new ways to evolve their lineup of products. Here at Hawaiian South Shore we have a large stock of FCS fins, including the four different FCS families: Performer, Carver, Reactor, and Accelerator. Each of these families of fins is designed for different styles of surfing, different types of waves, and different types of boards. The Performer Family is a series of great, all-around fins that have an inside foil for a bit more squirt through turns and pumps. Meanwhile, The Carver Family of...

Competitive Surfing Makes Its Post-Pandemic Return with Specialty Event

Competitive Surfing Makes Its Post-Pandemic Return with Specialty Event

Here’s one for those of us who have been missing competitive surfing. It has been seven months since the last world tour event when the Pipe Masters finished off the season and Italo Ferreira was crowned world champ. The entire 2020 season was subsequently canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the fact that no one can travel anywhere, which means no pro surfers in jerseys and no contests for fans to watch. But that all changed on Sunday, August 9, when the World Surf League ran an invitational contest at the Surf Ranch called the Rumble At the Ranch....

The H4 Fin Set: FCS Builds the Future

The H4 Fin Set: FCS Builds the Future

  The surf media has written thousands of pages on the various attributes of surfboard design, but much less attention has been given to the part of the surfboard that actually steers it. Fins are an essential part of what makes surfboards work, but we have only recently begun to explore their potential, in terms of design, materials, and other features. For the most part, the fins on today’s surfboards are pretty much exactly the same as the fins that were on boards 30 years ago—whether you are riding single-fin longboards, retro twin fins, thrusters, or quads.   That’s all...

Hawaiian South Shore August 2020 Newsletter

NEWSLETTER AUGUST 2020  SURF ETIQUETTE As most of us know, the complexities of surf etiquette can seem pretty overwhelming at times. But for those who understand how lineups work, there really shouldn’t be any confusion—so if someone is breaking etiquette, they are probably either ignorant or selfish. Let’s address ignorance first, and selfishness second. Nearly all waves break in a specific direction—either left or right. (An obviousexception would be Canoes in Waikiki, which is essentially a straight hander, and that’s why you often see 20 people on the same wave and they are all getting along great.) A-frame peaks like...

Surviving the Surf Shutdown

How the Surf World Dealt Withthe COVID-19 Quarantine It has been a rough couple of months for the world, with COVID-19 infecting millions and effectively shutting down the economy. And although our troubles might pale in comparison to those who have lost family members and friends to this pandemic, it’s been a pretty rough couple of months for the world’s surfers. Here in Hawaii, we were allowed to surf through the quarantine, but in most areas of the world, lineups have been empty, due to government bans on surfing. As you can imagine, people have been going a little stir crazy....

The Strange History of the …Lost Rocket, and the Inevitable Dominance of the Rocket Redux Carbon Wrap

The Strange History of the …Lost Rocket, and the Inevitable Dominance of the Rocket Redux Carbon Wrap

There are few board designs that have stranger stories than the …Lost Rocket. Back in the mid-2000s, Shane Beschen needed a board for his mini-grom Noah, and together with fellow …Lost pro surfer and shaper Noah Budroe scraped a broken blank into a straight-railed, low-entry rocker, wide-tailed, super-concaved speed demon. But then Shane ended up borrowing the board from his son, and found that the thing went ballistic. He brought the design to …Lost, where the design team tweaked it a bit and created what came to be called the Rocket—one of the most popular boards of the late 2000s....
