The Quiksilver Pro France is traditionally a pivotal event in the World Title race, and after taking the win, Julian Wilson is back in the strike zone.
Riding his recently updated signature FCS II JW template, which is now constructed in Performance Core material featuring AirCore technology, Jules showcased precision power surfing with some of the biggest airs seen this season.

Jules validated his new lightweight fins in the French beachies with a 10 point ride and the perfect event result.
Being lighter with a more ‘user friendly’ flex pattern, these new fins will ultimately help everyday surfers perform turns with more speed and flow.
The FCS II JW template is available in Grom, Medium & Large sizes. This fin sits in the Carver family, so it’s suited to power surfing and boards with more rocker.
“I’m really enjoying the feel of my new fin. The flex is a bit more predictable, and the weight advantage is a bonus. Overall my boards are responding faster now.” - JULIAN WILSON
Julian's Athlete pad remains one of the most popular in the FCS Traction range and focuses on increased traction and reduced weight.
Available in multiple color options, Julian’s 3-piece pad is made from a thinner EVA and features a high arch with channels, perforations and a double square groove.
Jules switched between the FCS 6’ Competition Leash in the heavier conditions and the FCS Freedom Leash on the smaller days.
Thinner and lighter, stronger with less tangling, the FCS Freedom Leash features a revolutionary new cord, streamlined cuff and hydrodynamic rail saver.
77 WSL World Championship Tour events, and 12 WSL World Titles, have now been won by surfers riding the FCS II system and fins.
In this episode of Behind The Curtain, 4 x World Champion Mark Richards explains how a simple idea produced one of the most fun and rippable board + fin combinations in surfing history.
