Also, 2nd today in the over 65s at the Alex Winter Classic.
Surf was the best it was all weekend. Friday was abysmal.
Today I got two good clean waves.

Any design or fin guru's know the theory behind the mini fins/nodules/nipples on Carissa Moore's board?

Extra foam is a revelation. Either that or this new shape is amazing.
What did you do leeg, add 1/16" to the thickness and 1/8" to the width?

Similar to vortex control winglets on aircraft wings.
An attempt to get more laminar flow off the tail, operating a little like channels.
Probably also gives her more feel for the tail, and lets her run smaller fins and get a bit looser. I heard some expert say a while back he thought most of the girls' boards were overfinned.

But honestly I'd say she's chasing shadows and it's a hologram bracelet situation, looking for confidence.

Re: Carissa’s claws
Kai Lenny posted a day ago “Recently the way I have been able to step up my game to the next level is thanks to the modern hydrodynamic advancements from @minksystems. I have them on every board. It has helped me go faster, throw more spray and has turned my average boards magic! #MinkSystems”
