    In windsurfing - Nash used it a lot in his wave jumping the others are set ups I pulled from my Oz files- I have no clue how they would work but
    I dig the ingenuity-
    Remember the Tinker Tail? An add on to your board that came in either a diamond or pin with flexible panels to allow your board to stay connected
    Did it work no but again the idea was sick and guys like Jeff Ho made thin glass tails to bend and flex- again sparked the interest
    I’ve seen 6 finned boards infinity made one in the 90 s called the 6 shooter- no work but cool
    Funny thing is someone did the same in the 60/70 era and were still going full circle-stay stoked- I enjoy one high aspect fin possibility a tri set in hollow stuff I even made a twelve fin board as a joke for a surf combo to protest their rules and no I worked like a Hugo in a mud bog but we made a point mi made these for myself and had hem displayed in several art shows overseas and yes they work- patterned off a sculpin
