Koi weed testing

Posted on May 15 2012

Hey guys,  So we've been going all out the past couple days testing the prototypes.  They're both working really nice.  Jon and I both like the narrower based fin better.  It's got more than enough grip in a straight line and still slides really nice.  It's a dramatic improvement over the Naia for freestyle.  The one with the wider base was a little too sticky in the tricks.  The narrower fin was the first weed fin I've tried that I can keep planing through a double flaka on.   I also hit my first double spock today with that fin.   So we're totally stoked with that narrower fin and I would say that's the one I'd like to see in production.  Now I'm wondering what a fin with the narrower top section combined with the bottom section of the wider fin would be like.    So the tide was super low today, more so than normal because of the water being blown out of the sound from the 50-60 mph winds yesterday.  Anyway, I hit a rock at full speed with the fin I like the best.  The bottom inch or so of the fin is shot, so i'm gonna try taking a little off the bottom and back and see what happens.  Really though, you guys came up with a great design and I'm totally stoked to be using that fin.  Now I won't mind having to switch to a weed fin!!!  I brought along the video camera to make a demo clip for you guys, but it's hard to find people willing to film for a while when it's below freezing.  I did get someone to take a few shots though.  Thanks again for everything,  Mike
