FCS Toledo Tail Pad
FCS Toledo Tail Pad is a signature pad of progressive WSL charger Filipe Toledo. It’s a classic 3 piece pad which is one of the most functional designs. The two side pieces can be extended. So wide and narrow tail boards will get good coverage. The gradual curve of the pad will fit the tail shape of most shortboards. A drop arch bar gives your foot support and it drops away at the front so you can move your foot around easily. The arch also flattens out at the back and so creates a sweet spot next to the kick that the side of your foot naturally fits into. There you get maximum connection and drive.
The kick has a moderate angle but is not vertical. It only has a small flat section on top and this works well for Filipe’s aerial moves. The Diamond III pattern and lock-in directional grooves provide traction and there’s perforations and holes for toe grip. The pad thickness is ultra thin so you can really feel your board. The sanded surface gives you additional sensitivity. An angular incut allows pad placement right above your leash plug so your foot will be right over your back fin giving maximum drive.
