    surf purge part deux

    i'm really working on simplifying things & to that end, am sticking w/ what i know works for me in terms of removable fins...solid fiberglass. these, then, are on the chopping block:

    True Ames CI template, clear:

    VERY lightly used, excellent condition w/ no nicks or scratches. yours, shipped, for $55.

    Soar MF template, yellow:

    Mick Fanning's signature template before he switched to FCS. much narrower tip than the FCS version, very light. Soar is an Australian fin company that is highly regarded for their quality. VERY lightly used w/ no nicks or scratches. yours, shipped, for $65.

    FCS MF-1:

    these had been my go-to fin set before i got on the Soar/solid fiberglass wagon. lightly used, no nicks or scratches. yours, shipped, for $65.

    FCS K2.1 quad rears:

    a great set of rear quad fins for a hp/McKee set up. been my go-to pair, but i'm not riding those types of quads anymore. yours, shipped, for $25.

    FCS PC-3 fronts, red:

    pretty heavily used, but still in excellent shape. these would make an excellent pair of rear fins for a wide tailed simmons-type quad, which is exactly what i used them for. yours, shipped, for $20.

    if you're local & want to pick them up, knock $5 off each price. if you're buying multiple sets, we'll talk pricing.

    the quality is far superior, IMO, to the bulk of FCS fins on the market, & the foils are much better; thinner, so they're more efficient. the True Ames is a thin foil as well. that's what i liked about the MF-1, it's a much more efficient foil than the thick, bulky foils used on all their other fins. then i got a set of True Ames, but the flex is a bit soft for my liking (i think it's the honeycomb...but i'm big, 195lbs. i'll flex anything out), so a friend suggest the solid glass Soars. i love 'em. no looking back! i also like that they're not made in china like all the other fins; they make them in australia. shipping costs a bundle, but the quality control is much better.
