FCS is proud to announce that Filipe Toledo will be riding FCS fins, pads, covers and leashes for another 3 years. The FT hardware franchise, which includes his signature fin and pad, have become some of the more popular merchandise in the FCS range.
“Being able to work closely on my fins and hardware can’t be understated. Without the right gear, I simply can’t perform to World Title standards. We have great synergy, and I’m stoked to be representing FCS into the future”, said Filipe on penning the new deal.
Now residing in California, and with a super easy-going attitude, the decision to re-sign Filipe was an easy one for Global Sports Marketing Manager, Richie Lovett.
“Besides his surfing talent, Filipe is a pleasure to work with and he’s also managed to blur the lines between countries and boarders. He’s got true global appeal; groms are physed on his act, and the older guard can also appreciate where he’s taking the sport”.
SurFebruary is a fun annual event in February, where participants raise money for cancer research by catching a wave or getting in the water every day – rain, hail or shine.
This episode sees Rich catch up with Mick Fanning on his recent trip to the US to chat about what he’s been riding, the development of his iconic fin template and how he came to embrace the FCS II system.
