If you are looking for a good wave board, bigger wave board, or a do it all exploration and adventure board the Happy Traveler is it! Proven in conditions around the world and in some of the most dreamy and serious surf, the Traveler is the one board travel quiver you’ll need for all your most memorable experiences ahead. The Happy Traveler takes the proven rocker curve of the Happy and tunes it for surf where a step-up is desirable due to size, power, or quality of waves.
In pumping surf, you need to be able to control and harness speed rather than merely create it. The Traveler’s decreased concave between the fins, straighter pulled in outline in the back third, and leading fin’s placement closer to the rail optimize hold and control in quality surf. This allows you to surf with more confidence and freedom as you are more connected to and seated in the wave face. When all the work is done, you’ll be thinking less and feeling more as you surf some of the best waves of your life.
When the waves are good you want to get as many as you can as well as have the confidence to get in over the ledge! The Happy Traveler maximizes your paddling power and ability to catch waves with more thickness carried in the forward deck and rail, and a fuller outline in the front third of the board. When the opportunity arises, you can be sure these same characteristics make the board perform exceptionally well in the barrel.
If the swell drops, the Happy rocker still gets the job done and proves this board to be the single board you need in your quiver.
The Traveler comes standard with a round pin and can be set up and ridden as a thruster or quad.

ive been wearing this model reef boot for nearly 20 years these are a upgrade in certain aspects but you cant get a better design very difficult for waves to rip off and also plenty of feel i use them even when not on reefs the extra traction is only a bonus dont get me wrong sea urchins can penetrate any bootie but if you want to look after your feet especially in the tropics these are my pick got to have the split toe on any boot your big toe does a lot have an injured big toe and you realise how much you control with it
On the recommendation from the Sandbah boys, bought these fins for my daily driver (Stacey Wave Slave), the smaller back fin is great and keeps the board lively/playful.
Used them in my HPSB (Channel Islands Two Happy) in solid 4ft and gave heaps of drive/confidence.
These are a real go to fin for me, highly recommended.
(Do yourself a favor and buy some grub screws to retain fins, incase like me, you accidently bump your fin under water from behind and lose it, otherwise FCS will gladly sell you a single).
The entire shopping experience was great.
Very happy with my purchase and the service that was provided. When part of my order was unavailable they called me personally and talked through the available options, my products arrived at my doorstep the next day.
