Swap meets August 11 and Sept 2. You absolutely will not believe the prices of excellent fins there. I've paid as little as $5 for apparently unused modern fins, and have bought as many as five at one swap meet. A flawless carbon race fin might fetch $40. Any that show some wear can be made as good as new in minutes with abrasives and running water. I've recently bought NEW, full retail price, True Ames fins directly from the factory that had more flaws than many of my swap meet fins. One TA fin took me a couple of hours, another the better part of an hour, to fix hydrodynamic flaws. After some phone calls, the next one arrived as expected: flawless.

Guy at Stevenson yesterday had some PB fins he wanted to get rid of. I can check with him on Tues. I'm guessing you want a curved fin?

thanks!

yes, freeride it is called? on another hand race will work too.
just the right size and good quality and not beaten up.

the main fin is 38 on 115 litre board. When it is getting strong 34 cm will compliment it nicely

This, from the same guy who, in the lightest 4.2 sail thread, wrote:
Iím not promoting any brand, as you are
because I cited some facts about a light sail.
