Imagine cruising along on a nice clean wave and then all of a sudden, bam - your fin hits a rock, sending you over the nose and your fin damaged. Your session gets cut short in an instant and that awesome fin that you've been bragging to your friends about is now better off in the garbage. Sound familiar. We hope not, but this can happen. Not only the fin can get messed up, but the fin box as well.
The Skeg Saver is here to help! In the event of severe impact to the fin from contact with under water obstructions, Skeg Saver's internal nut separates from the plastic slide, thereby releasing the forward tab section of the fin. The fastening screw is retained in the fin tab by Skeg Saver's internal nut. Skeg Saver is able to sustain repeated impacts below its breakpoint without suffering degradation of changes to its designed failure point. This is a great replacement for a standard metal screw and plate for your surfboard or windsurf board.

What are the best fins to use in summer surf conditions? We have a few to highlight on here. Also a few clips of Malibu, California's summertime surf mecca.
Every culture has a staple crop, a plant that has flourished for generations in the happiest and harshest conditions that nature presents. The Mayans had maize, and True Ames has the California Classic - a versatile design, moderate in area and rake, that will adequately nourish any board in any wave, especially the long peelers of Malibu.
You are frustrated. We understand. This confusingly agile silhouette just breezed through three insurmountable tubes, toes wrapped over the nose all the while. You can't go. You feel cheated. Consider new avenues. The silhouette is Josh Farberow, and he energizes his 50-50 rail logs with a flexible version of our California Classic.
