    Developed in collaboration between Taj's father Vance Burrow and Nev, the ADDvance offers extreme flotation in RapidFire technology. Combining the buoyancy of a longboard with a contemporary outline, the ADDvance Series opens up new possibilities for fun and performance. ADDvance your surfing! We’ve also added a 5/4/3 fin configuration for the coming year.

    Hello,

    Can the Addvance use Fcs or Future fins system?
    I have just received my new addvance and I think that only can use the Fcs fins.
    I have never used Futur fins.
    I ordered last monday Future system Simon Anderson 5 fins set and now seeing the board I think that i canīt use on my addvance the futur fins.
    Hope that i am in a mistake but could the addavance use both systems?

      The Addvance is available in both Futures and FCS. If you want a specific fin system it's best to place a special order for the board with that fin system. If you don't specify then it's just luck.
      If you have received one with FCS plugs it will not fit Future fins, they are very different systems. It would probably be best to return the fins and get the FCS Simon set or talk to your dealer and if the board hasn't been surfed they might be able to offer a swap for one with Futures plugs.

        Thanks prjwebb,
        The good thing is that my dealer give me free Fcs Pc 7 three fin set so I only have to buy GX-Q rear to ride my addvance like quad.
        I will try to shell Simon Anderson Futures fins set but i am thinking that it would be perfect for a 5,10 SP.....my wife will kill me

                    Hi everybody,

                    i have to repair two dings in my addvance 6,10.
                    what is the weight without water of the addvance?
                    Other form to know when is out all the water?

                    thanks

                      hey gizona,
                      the addvance doesn't suck water that much so as long as the foam feels dry around the ding and isn't dripping, you are good to go.

                      Cheers!

                        Looking at getting an Addvance 6'6" as a small wave/higher wave count board. I'm 72 kgs, 40+, and have been riding mid-lengths for the past 15 years - regular board is 7'x20 1/2 x 2 1/2 .Any advise on the Addvance vs something else in the range?

                          Hi Atlas, I'm no expert but have an ADDvance so will offer my 2 cents. I'm 45 and 95kgs and surf a 7'2 ADDvance which I think now is too big for me.

                          It will paddle heaps better than your mid length but will have a lot more volume. It surfs well, goes rail to rail easily, takes drops, paddles on to waves like a longboard and turns like a short board. If I could only have 1 board, this would be it (but maybe a 6'10). I also have a Sweet Potato which I think is a more fun small wave board, but anything over head high and steep I get some serious face plants. A SP is not a 1 board quiver.

                          As I said the ADDvance does have a lot of volume and I think it was designed for the heavyweights like me. At 72kgs, your might be better on a Dominator as a 1 board quiver. I haven't ridden a Dom yet so will let someone else spell the virtues of it. It will be my next board. If you can afford to have this as a back up board the maybe a Sweet Potato, or the Baked Potato looks good. I also find the ADDvance a little corky in head high plus, so I am looking at a Dom to back up my SP, I was considering a Hellfire but I think this would be too big a drop in volume for me.

                          Have fun.

                            Have you consider going shorter?. We could throw in the poll the Baked or Sweet potatoes if you want a little board that excells on small crappy conditions.
                            As far as the Addvance goes the 6'6" will be more than plenty

                              Thanks stc67 great summary of how the addvance works for you. It sounds like a good all round wave-catcher board that can still be ridden reasonably hard. I do wonder though if i'll find it a little corky given my weight and compared to what i' m currently riding. Think a demo will answer these queries. Dominator possibility too but the 6'4 or 6'6 in this seem to be ideal for a much heavier surfer & the drop in length might be an issue...
                              Thanks too Iggy. Yeah wouldn't go bigger than a 6'6 in the Addvance - if i got a PU custom might drop to a 6'8. I'm a reasonably competent surfer but been too many years since I've riden shortboards:-)
