    Akila Aipa's/Slater Designs' Twin release

    Just double-checked a photo from the last lost fin; it appears I mis-remembered re: the front screw. I didn't have a front screw in but did certainly had the rear one in (I always use rear screws in any FCS2 fins, certainly would use both front and back in the future if attempting to run twins...

    Akila Aipa's/Slater Designs' Twin release

    Yup. The slot gaps a bit under reasonable load, but did not want to push it to point of failure for fear of breaking the box.

    Akila Aipa's/Slater Designs' Twin release

    TLDR for my cross-linked post above: I'm quite convinced that the boxes distorted under load enough for the fins to slip out, even with the rear grub screw. The only solution I can devise is to use longer screws and slightly recess where it lands on the fin with a drill, giving it even more...

    XTR

    If you happen to visit the shop again and don't mind taking a pic (looked for it on the website but not listed/shown), I might follow up with a call to the shop. I've been considering one in this size as a step-up for tropical/winter barrels.

    If you decide to go with mediums, I have a set of YU's I could part with.

    Lib Tech Puddle Jumper

    I just picked up a used LibTech 5'8" Rocket Redux for my daughter (she's been borrowing my PJ but it's a bit wide/bulky for her and, well, it's MINE... haha) and it's a really nice shape. I'm considering eventually buying one in my dims as a DD.

    Lib Tech Puddle Jumper

    I have a 5'9" PJ in LibTech. Has a wide range for me- knee high slop to HH barrels. Construction is certainly more durable but also stiffer than most others. That said, I think it is well-suited for shorter, stockier boards where flex is not of top importance (and could even be a hinderance...

    Can your surfing improve after years of surfing?

    We recently had some beach replenishment performed on local beaches concurrent with a winter that seemed to be a non-stop swell generator. Created, temporarily, pointbreak-like conditions with dredging barrels at lower tides and loooong rippable walls at higher tides. Surfed my brains out a...

    Getting a board bag zipper unstuck.

    Depending on how locked up it is, vinegar does a good job dissolving away corrosion without being too harsh to other materials. Application of a few drops intermittently over the course of a day might break it up enough to get it moving.

    Rusty Smoothie 5'10 x 20 x 2.44 (31.3L) PU/poly

    Someone should jump on this deal. The Smoothie is one of the most underrated boards out there, IMO.

    Gary "Gaz" Gregg aka Bloomies Paddle Out

    Wait, what? We lost bloomies? Never even came close to meeting him but I liked his vibe and and appreciated his posts. For what it's worth, I'll drink a beer and think of him next time I hook up with a trout or snag a soul-satisfying wave.

    DIng repair - dark boards

    A low-viscosity glue (like brand-name "superglue") will seep into cracks via capillary action and help hide the glaring contrast. Obviously don't try if there is any chance it will travel deep enough to touch EPS foam.

    How Not to Park Your Boat

    I'd like to join the classic hull/Ocean Runner party. The Bimini top drives me a bit nuts (much prefer unobstructed 360 access) but wife and two of my kids are fair skinned so it gets us on the water more often/longer, particularly on hot summer days. 'nuff room to fish with my partner off...

    Dry Rotted Leashes

    What component is dry rotting? Urethane cord, nylon rail-saver, nylon cuff, or neoprene portion of the cuff? A good rinse with fresh water and storage in the shade should hinder decay. If all else fails and you continue to have these issues, leashes don't take up much space in a carry-on...
