Kelly Slater’s 5 fin board that he used in the recent New york contest.

Kimmeridge Reef vs Surfboard Fin


 Read THE BENCH-LORD’s comment at the bottom of the page from

Magicseaweed. with the below link,

Jeff the Ding Man 

Andrew’s Al Merrick FCS fins impacted upon

one of Kimmeridge’s Jurassic reefs.

The damage shot..

note trailing edge flattened & rear tab has

stress lines visable – due to tab being bent out of alignment

resulting in a broken FCS plug.

During surgery…


Both side fins re profiled together to ensure

symmetry & tab trued to maintain alignment.
