Nice little short on hand-making fins in OZ -
inspiring. good post.
I always lol at how surfers cult worship hand done anything. Getting as close to a NACA profile as possible only makes fin produce more lift. Sure you can tweak stuff faster by hand but being able to accurately reproduce and tweak things is the fastest way to real progress. And RTM molding processes makes a MUCH better structure than hand layup.
so , ‘‘scientistblank’’ …show us the fins YOU have made lately , as it sounds like you’re obviously an expert on the topic … SHOW us what you got …
‘And RTM molding processes makes a MUCH better structure than hand layup.’
I disagree, solid fiberglass has the best flex. RTM are light but stiff.
RTM and solid fiberglass combinations…if they are far superior why would the best surfer in the world use solid fiberglass?
