    Nice, some of our fins have been nicknamed 'Patu' fins after maori war clubs.

    These wavy edged sword blades used the same principle I'm sure, and the alternative theories for their existence are pretty weak:

    They may well find a new nickname along the lines of 'Crappu' after pier-shotting on 23' foamballs.

    I must be missing something here but which is the leading edge, the bumpy side or the smooth side? The bumpy leading edge looks like it might work well to cut/saw through kelp or Puerto Rican bodyboarder limbs. Then we can call it the Ginsu.

    Looking at the position of the pin and screw, isnt that a Bumpy Trailing Edge Foil???

    Bumps are on the leading edge, the tab can be at leading or trailing edge, currently at the front due to the cutaway at the trailing edge.

    At $200 per fin, you should definitely buy at least a baker's dozen, chucka-boo-boo. Help pay for the gnome's vasectomy.

    Actually Yankee that's pretty well priced for a fin like that. A well made fin usually goes for 100. This happens to be Roy's blef fin so yeah it's kinda hard to come by ya god damn moron

    Roy I'm gonna order one from you at some point but I was thinking a 10 inch would be good. I will be putting it on my person arrow laird sup. should he interesting.

    Yes, chucka-boo-boo, you with 10 inches of your desired gnome up in ya would be quite a shpectacle.

    Hmm actually Yankee I don't think so pal. Your the one who clearly suffers from some form of suppressed homosexuality with all the man on man references you constantly refer too. I suggest you not post and troll an otherwise perfectly interesting thread.

    I recommend you have a speak with your good friend Wayne. He can help you supposedly.
