    Missing Tech 2 Fin

    This past weekend, I lost a clear/ice colored, right footed, Tech 2 bodyboarding fin around 46th in OC. If anyone could let me know if they picked it up I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

    You'll be lucky to get that back man. I've lost several fins in OC and I never find them. Worst feeling ever having a fin pulled off your foot.

    I'll keep my eye open for the tech.

    Two words: fin teathers.

    I use Tech one fins, never liked the two's. But, a few years ago I was surfing around 80th street in OC. I got sucked over the falls on one wave and the fin literally ripped off my foot. I went to Kcoast to buy fins quickly and drove down to Bethany to swim in front of a friend who guards. Right when I paddled out in Bethany, a tech one fin, same size but different color, floated to the surface. It felt like I had struck gold.

    its gone, bye bye... most likely got sucked out into the ocean never to return. fin teathers are a good idea if your fins frequently come off, however if the fin fits you correctly it shouldnt be very loose.

    More than once has a fur ball of the collapsing tube behind me ripped off a good fitting fin, but never once has a fin been lost with fin tethers on. I learned *my* lesson well on a sweet 5' getaway Sunday morning session at Big Rock - hard to find replacement fins at 7:30am and a flight at 11am! Not to mention if you travel to places where there isn't a surf shop every 3 blocks.
