Re: quad fins 44.25 paipo

There have been several evolutions in the board since the first description (e.g., the thread title still says quad fins). Please provided updated specifications including nose and tail rockers.

Re: Everybody wants to

Wow, Nels, I have never seen so many Wavemaster/Wavestorm boards. It is freaking crazy. Ouch. It is like cheapo bodyboards for the masses but now the masses are out in the line-up going every which crazy way.

Re: orca fins? other symmetrical fins

I would argue that one should never buy fins unseen unless they are absolute replicas of ones already being used. Simple reformulations can make a fin go from good to great or great to terrible. First step is a dry fitting in the store where 70 percent of fins can be eliminated due to fit (and bring...

Re: orca fins? other symmetrical fins

My two cents on Hydro Tech 2, great material, probably could go barefoot in warm waters, very soft and supple, and a wide and tall foot pocket. They must have done some serious re-tooling and sourced different materials. I had a pair about 10 or 12 years ago (guess they could have been Hydro Tech 1...

Re: orca fins? other symmetrical fins

Bob, Oh, I thought it was the legs ;) Honestly, I think the term might be French or Euskera, but not Spanish. I searched for escarpin thinking maybe it was a brand of fin socks or surf booties, not a generic term. Kept coming up with various forms of high heels. In the reference to the Hydro Tech 2,...

Re: orca fins? other symmetrical fins

belly rider : I've been to the store in France, they had a few models, happy because I could prove them before buying. It is very curious as some fins without escarpin, they fit me well, but a larger size with escarpin, they are fatal to me. Hydrotech2 example. without escarpin size 9/10. very bad,...

Re: orca fins? other symmetrical fins

It is good to see more of the pluses and minuses spelled out below. For one, if the swim fins can't hold up on rocky or reefy terrain they are not the swim fins for me, a real showstopper. I was very pleased to find out my DaFins were so much lighter than my Vipers because I usually take two pairs o...
