Hawaiian South Shore High-Performance Center Fin
One of our customers’ favorite fins has historically been the FCS Performer center fin, but since that fin is no longer available, we decided to make our own version. The Hawaiian South Shore High-Performance (HSS HP) center fin has a similar template to the FCS Performer center and is great for surfers who like to shred high-performance longboards or who are transitioning from shortboarding to longboarding.
The fin is made with G10 fiberglass, which is premium, industrial-grade fiberglass with a high cloth-to-resin ratio, which makes it stronger and more impervious to nicks and dings from the reef. Legendary shaper Dan Mann loves the G10 material for his fins, especially when he is traveling and a damaged fin could ruin his trip.
The HSS HP is available in both large and extra-large sizes and is perfect to pair with your favorite medium or large side fins (or XL side fins, if you are a very powerful or stout surfer).
Moving the fin forward (toward the nose) will loosen your board up a bit, while bringing it back to the rear of the box (toward the tail) will provide more stability and facilitate longer, more drawn out turns. If you are looking for a center fin to take your high-performance longboarding to the next level, keep it local and start shredding the HSS HP!
