    The 2 worst that I can think of that I used were the butterfly fin and traction tape for the entire surfboard. The butterfly fin worked until you tried a bottom turn and the whole board would just shoot out from under you. The freaking traction tape, I remember buying a whole roll of it and you put in on the entire board eliminating the need for wax. Well after about 2 hours of surfing it had wore my skin raw on my knees, nipples and the insides of my legs. Needless to say I tore it off that same day.

    On an interesting note I found this page when searching for the butterfly fin. Holy fin contraptions!http://www.surfresearch.com.au/f.html

    I admit I tried the web gloves. Little baloons formed between my fingers and it was like paddling with 4 water baloons attached to each hand. Next came the tendonitis. I still have them in a box somewhere.

    Hydrofoils... when everything in the surf industry is focused improving performance, hydrofoils go in the opposite direction.

    Inflatable boards... especially inflatable SUPs.

    Handplanes... sorry George.

    pumpmaster... I was gonna say kneeboards, too, but then I remembered the hardest turn I ever saw was a kneeboarder. Guess it's that low center of gravity? Anyway... instant respect.

    DPSUP... please don't be offended. We're just having fun here... some of us even making fun of ourselves.

    yeah im the fence about kneeboards. never really caught on tho and my thinking is that even if its a good idea the fact that it never took off relegates it to the lame category. for SUP's i would specific to say SUP as a waveriding implement. for cruising on flat days or the bays, they could actually be pretty cool.

    how about lifeguards? (wait, not really a product)
