FCS Introduces Hippo's Traction Pad
Designed and tested in collaboration with the world’s best surfers, the FCS Athlete Series Traction range has rider specific features for the ultimate in performance. Spearheaded by FCS’ 100% Hardware Athletes, this exciting range of pads sets a new benchmark for comfort and functionality.
Ryan ‘Hippo’ Hipwood’s three piece pad is the longest in the FCS Traction range. This is great for bigger boards and guns, and surfers who like to shift their back foot forward when driving down the line. It’s also the only three piece pad in the range without an arch bar, again for unrestricted back foot adjustments. Spreadable to fit just about any type of tail design, Hippo’s pad features a high kick, double square groove, and channels for extra resistance to help lock your foot in place when the pressure is on, especially when riding waves of consequence.
