    Because of the interest in the Wayne Rich #3 fin lately I decided to get committed. Been trying to stay focused and keep moving forward. Tons of time, a lot of dust created, and I ain't done yet. Two locals are stoked on this template and are waiting. Some others want another style so I'm a laminating foiling maniac. Sharing some pics of the progress.

    Thanks all. Yeah the Kumano Bearing system has been working really well. You just need to pay attention that the sides of the fin are nice and snug in the box. On these the bearings will be pressed in then a gloss and polish finish.

    The first 2 are finished. I hope to deliver them in the next couple of days.

    Radness, Neil. Congrats and keep on making them; the results are looking so professional. This is such a great shape and, having one--albeit with a little less area on the trailing edge--I'm stoked on the results. Your fin and the Cuda flex are the two I judge all my other fins by.

    This is the rough cut of my rice fin before foiling. Such a beauty.
