  • Handplanes are the new alaias.

    If someone on an alaia crashed into someone using handplanes a sphincter would spontaneously form.

  • I need to get some hand planes and some softer fins. I have a lingering bad ankle that, when I put Churchills on and tried to swim, felt like some sort of cruel torture device. Excruciating.  :-\


    Anyone recommend some less stiff/more forgiving fins that my ankle might be able to take?

  • Seacliff, you could probably just go with a single fin. Dolphin kick into stuff. Fins are tough on ankles.

  • try the pod fins, I got several pairs for snaggle, they are a shorter fin than churchill so they are easier to kick and the rubber is buttery soft.  As for the handboard, come by tomorrow and you can pick one up.

  • i LOVE my pod fins. i get cramps and my skin rubs off after a short while in churchills. the pods have saved me. i have a summer pair and a winter pair so they can fit over booties. i had the best shorepound session last weekend. dammit - i wish i were bodysurfing right now.... might be a good day for it.

    Yeah, I have a pair of Da Fins and they're a little stiff. What model POD fin do you have? there seems to be 3 different ones.
