With an electric display of speed and power surfing, Filipe claimed his 9th CT Victory in pumping four-to six foot surf at Margaret River’s Main Break.
Building throughout an event which saw some of the biggest surf in recent competition, FT timed his run to perfection, unleashing a barrage of critical forehand hacks to take the win.
“I’m just so stoked. My equipment feels so dialled. My fins feel perfect in these solid conditions. I feel glued to my board! I promised to win a comp for my son Koa on his birthday today & I did it! I'm fired up for the next comp at Rottenest, Bring it on!” – Filipe Toledo
Taking a closer look at the equipment Filipe used throughout the comp he preferred the FCS All Round leash as a trusted option in the big stuff.
His fins of choice were the FT Larges – which sit under the Accelerator family and are ideal for controlled, high speed turns in critical waves – pretty much the exact conditions over in the West!
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.
