RE "weed" if you have sailed Berkeley you have sailed over major beds of eel grass (close to the Emeryville Launch). Unlike most aquatic plants, this suff is not really a problem for windsurf fins. A straight big pointer fin might collect this stuff, but not the regular fins.

I invite you to come try a regular fin at Bodega harbor once summer hits - you won't get far. Weed fins are mandatory. I've even had to use a weed fin at Tomales/Dillon on occasion.

no need to drive to bodega for the experience.

not nearly as bad, but marina bay has some thick, fin grabbing clumps floating around these days.

Kidding aside on the weeeeed fin comment, I've hit a few large fish/small sharks at full speed in the flats at Larkspur over the years and it generally causes massive splashdowns and wrenched ankles / faceplants when the blade stops dead on the side of some mysterious aquatic beast. You can tell by the feel - kinda squishy as you hit dead stop. Never had dinner float up after though. Wish I could hit salmon with some regularity.
