Design and Feel

The FCS G-AM PC fin set is made up of 2 side fins and a center fin which is smaller than the side fins. The larger side fins have a base of 4.61” (117mm) and a depth of 4.70”(119mm), with a total surface area of 15.63”2 (10083mm2). The side fins are also more upright than the center fin with a sweep of 36.3 degrees.

These side fins work in tandem with the smaller center fin. This fin has a base of 4.47” (113mm), a depth of only 4.45” (113 mm) and a total area of 14.68”2 (9469mm2). The sweep of the center fin is also slightly more and equals 38.6 degrees.

Since this model of the FCS G-AM fins is from the Performance Core line of FCS fins, they have the feeling of traditional fiberglass fins with reduced weight. Because of this construction technology, you are investing in a lightweight fin with remarkable flex.

This design makes the FCS G-AM PC fins very fast and smooth removable fins, with quick, controlled release allowing for snappy turns .

These fins are also available in FCS’ Glass Flex material (FCS G-AM Glass Flex Fins) for an even more traditional fiberglass feel.

Wave Conditions

If you are an average surfer then these FCS fins can be used in almost any surf conditions and can be ridden at pretty much every type of break.

The Look

The G-AM PC Fins are a nice solid blue color and show the well known Channel Islands logo stamped right in the middle of the fins in white. They also have the FCS logo and G-AM stamped towards the base of the fins in white. Since they are made using the performance core technology you can also see the hex pattern of the fins’ core.

Surfer Specifications

The FCS G-AM PC fins are specifically made for surfers in the large weight category and would therefore be ideal if you weigh between 165 to 200lbs or 75kg to 90kg.

What We Say

We would suggest the FCS G-AM PC fins for a large surfer looking for not only speed but also maneuverability.  The combination of the smaller center fin and larger side fins does just this by providing you with great speed but yet enough pivot and looseness to release the tail when necessary.
