FMN played a major roll in Parko’s 2012 title win, being the first choice when the waves were at their best. Although the DNA of this model has been around since 2009 it is constantly evolving and improving along with the surfers riding it. FMN is now at the peak of performance surfing equipment and when used in appropriate conditions is unrivaled. During 2012 I made a few adjustments to JOEL’S FMN adding more volume throughout the center of the board, yet still keeping the rail heights in line with what the model is actually for - GOOD waves. Having a lower more refined rail allows the board to penetrate and turn at high speeds. I have also added slightly more area to the outline yet leaving the tail tight with no hip for a continuous smooth curve. The rocker has slightly more lift at the nose and tail to fit into the curve that good waves offer. A subtle single to double concave means the board will harness all the waves power and give you optimum control. (double concave under front foot has been removed from the 2013 model) TIP: Too much concave in powerful waves will mean too much lift, making it harder to get on rail and ultimately less control.
