Something as small as a leash string is actually quite valuable to a surfer, and for some mysterious reason they often go missing. So, FCS decided to make these special blue strings available as an essential accessory for any surfer.
FCS Strings for Charity is an initiative created for the sole purpose of supporting Surfaid International, with 100% of the profits going directly to the cause. In essence, every surfer who purchases an FCS Leash String is helping to support this worthy cause.
The concept is pretty simple… Surfers are always in need of leash strings. They’re a hot commodity, and for some mysterious reason, they often go missing. So, FCS decided to make special Blue Leash Strings available through retail outlets with 100% of the profits going directly to SurfAid International. In essence, anyone who purchases one of the blue FCS Leash Strings is helping to support this worthy cause.
