Well I ended getting some dafins and had them out for 15 minutes. had to go in and switch out to my repellors. I then cut them down and brought them out and had no improvement. Now I had a pair of fins stashed in Florida but I couldn't remember what they were. I'm pretty sure that I was supposed to get the same ones here in CA but I think I got side tracked with trying something different, I have no clue because we're talking 4 yrs ago. They ended up being hydro techs so I brought them back with me. They are very comfortable and a little stiffer than the repellors. Should have them out in some swell this week and see how they are getting around. don't have the new board yet gonna be a couple more weeks.

Pes, my buddy that loaned and encouraged me to try out the DaFins during a surfing session together recommended giving the fins a chance to "modify my kick stroke" and to just "feel the flow." He was right... the first 5 to 10 minutes were a lot different than my Vipers kick but then the feel started to kick-in.

Rod I threw them out and I don't think I'm going down that road again. I've done some dumb stuff the last month with my equipment.
