Re: Futures fin screw

The oils of Peppermint & Wintergreen are both very good penetrants. I'd slather some down in the threads and let it sit over night and try it again. Making sure its free of salt first. If that doesn't work you can take a steel screw of that size(IIRC that's a 10/32, pretty common) and file a gro...

Re: Basics.

IMO About the only thing riding a finless wood paipo has in common with riding a boogie or a finned body board is the prone position. I've been riding prone now for about 15 years.

Re: A Ripple in the Force

The stuff in the article is not mere conjecture.
Here is one of Tom's Air Injection boards.
