    Does anybody else wear their bodyboarding fins upside down?

    My normal summer go-to fin is a pair of L makapuus that I wear right-side up; however, I've found if I get foot cramps, sometimes switching them to upside-down helps. <br /><br />My winter over-the-socks pair of fins is a pair of XL Australian Manta Blade IIs that came free with my apartment, and I find that they just have way more thrust catching the wave when I wear them upside down. Somehow, right side up, the curve is wrong and they just drag and push water the wrong direction. Here's a pic of some extremely similar fins:<br /><br />

    Weird, no I've never heard of anyone putting on a bodyboarding fin upside down.

    Fitz that was one of the best videos I've seen in a while. Much respect to Russell Brand.

    Talented dude, but he did lose mad street cred from me at least when he said in an interview last year that he took it in the poop shoot before... I was like, WTF bro?
