    Step........ no leap through the looking glass- were happy to suck oxygen to produce what we
    Believe are the finest steerage designs out there- and they have a faint scent of Patchouli- Which bottle will you drink from?

    Snake oil , you mean.

    Gotta love the marketing of surfboard fins using airplane wing findings.

    Classic.


    Where to begin....?

    But wait... you’re just tongue and cheek with this. Ohhh...

    Cool, you can use it to blow dry your hair after a day in the wild surf. I need one for my soft top. Lol

    Wrong thread. This is just one of Artisan’s 50 fin threads chock full of aerodynamic principles applied to water. So spacey.

    I learned most of what I learned from Curtis H the Future fins developer
    His education in marine engineering and principles of aeronautics was based on solid principles . You always are
    Positive which is great some poo poo the science which also is fine as solipsisim breeds discontent- it’s a shame as the information is out there yet most ignore it- a bronzer only works due to the aerobatic concepts developed and transferred to the medium. Seems there’s a few self designated masters of hydrodynamics out there which is fantastic as
    Hopefully we can all learn from them- I’m still learning 45 years later but thanks to folks like Curtis(rip o sensi) Mr Lexcen and others far smarter than me- I try to keep pushing what can be- if all the keyboard warriors out there would contribute it would be a better world- but as the inter web is ripe for blah blah- it’s expected and amusing
    Fins simply are vertical wings doubt it grab the Rogers) asronaticanvolumes and mull over the science and diagrams
    If you read French cool if not scan the diagrams -
