    i think we all started somewhere along those lines, but in all seriousness fins have nothing to do with your spins.."where your head goes your body follows"

    I gota deside

    So you guys like the techs, but they make you have less thrust and make it harder to catch a wave then the churchills?
    My fins now are cramping my feet and squeezing them together. I need new ones but im still not sure which are better. I mainly want one with better thrust

    if your decent at bodyboarding you shouldnt have to worry about the thrust n catching waves, especially during the summer... you can catch waves with or without fins, you just have to know where to sit and when to go, fins are mostly about comfort...

    no way. Techs have the most thrust in my opinion. The tech 2's are a little lighter weight and have less thrust. Churchills are a little longer and have good thrust, and most people like them because of the style. I'm personally hooked on the original techs.

    I always wear fin socks with my techs. Everyone is different, but one session for me without fin socks, and my feet get ripped up. Its ashame, because if feels so nice to go without any fin sock.
