    I have another question, does the fins make it easier to get out on a big day vs. paddling a surfboart with arms?

    Honestly dude, even if any of those tubes were happening in some tropical warm water spot, they'd all still be classified as "heavy". Jelly here.

    Don't be such a fucking stranger, hear?

    Many of the MD folk (including me) do both as we got blackball all summer. I absolutely look forward to getting barrelled in the summer shorebreak. We do a staycation every year in which my day consists of: wake up, surf TBTSNBN in morning (or fish if flat) then spend all day on beach with wife mixing in multiple bodybooarding/bodysurfing sessions, eat dinner at restaurant, drink several beers, bang wife, sleep then repeat next day. No BS - one of my favorite weeks of the year.

    Long paddles out it's easier with a surfboard, surfboards cut through long paddles out with less drag. Beach breaks like home above fins give you pretty good sprints on getting out and into waves.
