Wait a few months and Tomo’s dad should have them copied and listed for sale as his own design. Krypt Blades!

Kidman was selling them at the screenings for his "Edge" film. Just $300...

Would love to hear more feedback, especially regarding successes and failures in different types of boards. The fin is meant to provide variable tow for singles, giving them more success at higher rates of attack (or surfing vertically easier).

I see a lot of guys (who most likely bought them because of George's name attached) on boards like Liddle hulls and Andreini gliders. I'm curious if anyone has had success on a shreddier single like a Parmenter V6 single or an egg?


Look what the light did now.

Looks like he’s using one from about 3:30. Conditions are a little bumpy but he seems to be struggling. He definitely looks better at the start on a more traditional looking single.

You can see he is still dialing in the handling but he definitely does bigger turns on the power blade.

New Surf Splendor came out today with Ellis and Kidman, I'm sure they'll mention the fin.

I picked one up (8.2") at the boardroom show, riding it in my 6'4 Andreini Vaquero edge. Still trying to dial the placement in the box, definitely a bit more lively than the high speed fin.

Only really ridden it in size once, but the combo of edge and powerblade in chop was pretty great. Barely felt any chop on the face and once the rail was engaged their wasn't any chatter. Also didn't feel like there were any speed bumps slowing me down.

I was lucky enough to pick up a barely used 6' Greenough template Andreini edge from KP yesterday that came with a 7.8" power blade. Once Malibu or Leo has waves I'll give it a go and bring a report back.

What about a regular vaquero (non edge)?
