    Tool-less fin device.

    Big fan of the thumb screws. I have found that if you don't tighten down the thumb screws a ton then the fin will move back in the box if you're really moving. The little rubber washers get lost almost immediately too. Always thought about gluing the washer to the screw to keep them around but...

    Surfing in the Age of the Omnipresent Camera

    https://www.surfersjournal.com/feature/nu-rythmo/ Pretty sure this is the video that is referenced by Brisick. Pretty harsh criticism IMO. Very much enjoy February's style. It is pretty distinct and makes you think its a bit forced, but all the videos I've seen of him are pretty consistent so...

    Alternative bonzer fins?

    In on this thread cause I’m picking up a bonzer 3 from a local shaper in a couple weeks. I’ve heard 4a’s will work as well. In the context of bonzer 5’s though. Here’s some proof - https://www.instagram.com/p/BuZLR2lHr3W/?igshid=uq3kydf62cb3

    New boards arrived, wrong fin configs. What to do?

    Wet/dry backpack?

    Miami

    I always wonder how much surf there is in Naples. Go there a couple times a year and its always seems to be micro-trace swell but nothing rideable. Have seen pics of waves from the pier from a surf shop I follow on IG
