Jeremy Flores 2x Pipeline Master

by Chris D | Dec 19, 2017
Jeremy Flores has finished the 2017 WSL season with a last minute victory at the Pipeline Masters over the new World Champion John-John Florence. Riding the FCS II Carver PCC Medium for extra control and drive, Jeremy etches his name on the coveted trophy for the second time.

FCS II Carver

Here’s 3 reasons why JF rides the FCS II Carver PCC at Pipe.

1. Fins in the Carver family are defined by having high sweep, so they have plenty of hold and drive with an emphasis on control. All the elements you need in a fin to take on a hollow, powerful wave like Pipeline.

2. Like most pros, Jeremy’s board has lots of rocker. Because of the high sweep, fins in the Carver family are suited to boards with lots of rocker because they help anchor the tail into the wave, adding even more control in critical moments.

3. The extra stiffness and super quick response that comes with our Performance Core Carbon (PCC) materials is perfect for driving hard off the bottom and setting up the barrel.

Leash

When surfing Pipe, you need a strong leash, and the FCS 7’ Premium Regular does the job for medium size ‘Hawaii’ waves that pack a solid punch. The Regular Leash has a thicker chord compared to the lighter Competition leash, and a slightly wider cuff. All FCS Premium leashes have double swivels and a deluxe high-density neoprene ankle strap with soft lycra edging.

Traction

Jeremy’s signature 3-piece FCS JF Traction pad has dual grooves, a low kick, narrow arch bar, and perforations for added sensitivity. This low profile pad is great for surfers who prefer less bulk under their back foot.

“Whenever I’m riding bigger, hollow waves I tend to use fins in the Carver family, rather than my signature fin which I like for everyday conditions. That extra control makes you feel more confident, especially when you’re driving through the barrel”. Jeremy Flores
