    Nice work! Love the fin too. I alway get too impatient to shape fins for my boards. How did you make the blank for the fin? 6oz glass with resin in one shot?

    You're all laughing but there was a guy on one here at a RI break. On the plus side, maybe it will hurt less when they lose control and run us over.

    I wonder if anyone ever surfed Diego Garcia; that place looks amazing for driving, fishing, etc. The gov barely acknowledges that it exists. It's in the Indian Ocean if you've never heard of it.
