For more than three decades Chuck Ames and the True Ames Fins team have been at the forefront of the fiberglass fin industry. Balancing a surfer-driven design ethic with an unyielding commitment to innovation and production excellence, we have forged an international reputation in the surfing and windsurfing communities as the guys who, simply put, make your waveriding vehicle of choice work even better. After all, as Chuck likes to say, “You could have the best board in the world shaped for you but, if the fins are off, it won’t go- the thing just won’t work the way it should.” Day in and day out, it is our goal at True Ames to make sure such fin failures never happen to you.
You might notice that your FCS surf fins don’t fit exactly flush on your board. There might be a gap in the front or back of the fin that can create drag and collect debris. Most people think that you just file down the fin tabs to make them fit deeper in the FCS plugs..That won’t work. This is because the bottom of these fins are actually flat. You have to customize the angle and depth of the fin to fit properly. This video will show you how to fit FCS surf fins flush on your board.
