Great clip Steve, really nice. Got to love José too :wink:

Edit: No idea why I confused Piers Faccini with José González.

Back on topic.

you know, with your finless and small fin experiments you're almost on a wakeboard...
have you checked out some of the contours on the ones they use for butterslides? deep channels and ridges (?), whatever the opposite of a channel is!
they're used with tiny finlets (kind of like bonzer sidebites), hold in carves and straight lines, but you can 'break' them into slides.

it'd be hard to shape, i guess, but could be interesting.

I have been looking at alot of diff places for ideas and inspiration and have had a brief look at wake boards but will be looking alot more, makes sense.....learning so much from riding all these variations of fins and finless but it really has made finned surfing seem dull.....thanks
