Surfboard with long daggers fins will go up wind better than standard fins.

Jolly Green,

Have John Amundson make you a Custom. I finally did and wish I had done it several years ago. If I remember, you are in the Clydesdale division like me not the Popcorn Fart division.

He made me a 6 ft 5 23in Wide and 3 inches thick. You won't be sorry.
