USA’s Caroline Marks has made her intentions very clear for 2019 with a victory in the first WCT event of the season; the Quiksilver Pro, Gold Coast.

Caroline’s savage backhand power attack was unmatched in the punchy crystal peaks of Duranbah, and her gritty victory over Carissa Moore in the final proves she has what it takes to win a World Title.

As the youngest surfer to ever qualify for the Championship Tour, Caroline went on to win the 2018 Rookie of the Year title. She now goes into the second event at Bells Beach wearing the Jeep Leader Jersey.

FCS II KA Medium
Sitting in the Accelerator family, Kolohe Andino’s signature fin is suited to fast, explosive surfing in punchy waves. Considered an ‘All Rounder +’, this fin offers a balance of speed, flow & response with added control.


FCS T-1 Traction
Available in range of colours, the FCS T-1 Traction pad is a single piece pad for boards with narrow tails. With features including a small size arch bar, double diamond groove, high tail kick, sanded surfaces for enhanced grip and perforations for extra resistance, this super functional pad is popular with younger surfers.


FCS 6’ Freedom Leash
The idea behind the FCS Freedom Leash is to make it feel like you’re not wearing one at all. Thinner and lighter, stronger with less tangling, it features a revolutionary over braided PU cord, streamlined cuff and hydrodynamic rail saver.

“I’m just so stoked to win!! Matt Biolos made me some insane boards, and I’m finding Kolohe’s fin really suits the way I like to surf… driving hard off the bottom and really attacking the lip”.
