New FCS “Fusion” fin plugs

I have been wanting to comment on the blog about the new fin system that fcs just came out with. It is a figure eight donut looking insert that is put into poly or eps foam and makes the fcs fin system as strong or stronger than any other fin system. Go to fcs website if you want more info directly on this system. Typically on eps boards we only use future or lockbox. Now with this new system you can go with fcs as well. This is nice if you already have a good selection of fcs fins and may make it easier to choose a eps/epoxy board in the future.

About neilsonsurfboards

I started shaping surfboards when I was 16 years old and ended up selling that first board to one of my neighbors. My big break came a few years later when I got a job shaping full time for Quiet Flight surfboards. I shaped about four thousand surfboards before burning out and leaving that company. At that point I went back to massage therapy full time and shaping surfboards part time for a few select surfers and close friends. After sailing the Caribbean for a year in 2000 when I came back I went back to shaping my own private label full time and doing massage therapy part time. The progression of names or labels was first “Sugar Cane” in the 70’s inspired by trips to Mexico and traveling in a bus cross country and seeing all the sugar cane growing there. Then “Quiet Flight” in the 80’s and then “Creative Visions” which then became “Neilson” surfboards in the 2000’s. I still make some boards using the Creative Visions name and unique mandala art work created by Courtney Davis. I’m up around the 10,000 mark for surfboards shaped and crazy as it sounds I’m still learning new things and still improving what I’m doing. Still love to surf and try and ride different shapes all the time! View all posts by neilsonsurfboards
