Wed Mar 14, 18 7:44 pmNew Video: Reo Stevens and the FCD "KiteGun"
I've been working on this board with Fletcher Chouinard at FCD Surfboards trying to create a "step-up" for kitesurfing...
Made specifically for good waves and high speed riding (or if you just like going fast) the FCD "KiteGun" was a board I didn't know that was missing from my quiver. The KiteGun is simply a 6'8/7'0 step up shrunken down to a 5'10 length and has quickly become my board of choice the moment the waves get good. Check it out here from a good day at home this past winter.

I just got a 6'0 sky surfboards kite gun called the spartan. Have not taken it out in big waves and probably won't, but it's identical dimensions. Looks like it works!!! That guy might rip a door that hard though!!!

Ive got 4 fcd surfboards, i think theyre pretty sweet. The guy that does my ding repair (Tom Scott in seaside, cheap, really good, very interesting) was telling me that the type of foam they use (which is supposed to be more durable and enviro friendly) is prone to bubbling when the board is either left in direct sun or a place where it heats up. No biggie, now i just make sure it gets back in the dakine board bag (not the board sock).
I cant qualify my opinion across a bunch of different brands or shapers. Just thought Id throw in that I think FCD has been great for me, and this one little tip to take care of your whip in the event you go for one.

Nice clip Reo.
I have an FCD that Fletcher shaped for LF back in 2008 ish.....great board.
I think the foam referred to is I-foam....and I am not sure about the bubbling.
But we have made a couple of boards with it in the past and didnt have any issue.
Busy making surf/kite/wake/foil/foilsurf conversion boards with Cush Tech.
In case anyone is getting ready for the season and/or has new goals? _________________ www.silencersurfboards.com
