The Thorn FC is a high performance freestyle board intended for the pro and hardcore rider who loves to perform radical moves and is ready to join world class competitions.

• Full Wood Core
• Grav-D Footstrap System
• G10 Fins
• Carbon Laminate Layups
• Hi Ten Response Flex

All freestyle enthusiasts will be glad to hear that Naish has released two extremely versatile boards to suit their needs: the Thorn and Thorn FC. Both of them are powerful and fast boards with top control and perform great in a wide range of wind and wave conditions. The Thorn is a great choice for both and intermediate riders and it offers high performance as well as tons of fun.

The Thorn FC is a more technical board intended to suit the demanding needs of hardcore and pro riders. The main difference between the two models is the construction technology. Both use a Tip2Tip Wood core, but the Thorn uses additional NASA Tech 2 laminates, while the FC version uses full Carbon laminate layups. The FC stands for Full Carbon. The Carbon fiber makes the Thorn FC much lighter and generates a more explosive pop. At the same time it provides the Hi Ten response flex, which is carefully optimized to suit advanced freestylers.

The Thorn FC uses a compact shape and slightly rounded outline which makes it very agile and responsive in most wind and wave conditions. An enhanced rocker and bottom shape provide excellent upwind and planning abilities, as well as a fast top speed and instant acceleration. Due to the high Ten Responsive Flex, the board offers on demand power, and the rider can enjoy high jumps and lifts without any effort at all. Although it is a very powerful board which offers a massive pop, the Naish Thorn FC is very accurate and stable. The rider can perform the most advanced tricks without worrying about losing control even for a second.

The G10 fin setup optimizes the power delivery, prevents drag and increases the grip at high speeds or in tight turns. The perfect bond between the rider’s feet and deck is provided by the Grav-D footstrap system. It is easy to adjust and it offers top comfort. If you wish to secure the first place in any freestyle competitions, it is time to pick up the Naish Thorn FC.
