This is the second "tech video" by Andy in the past few month. First one I think was about boots and straps. Are we looking at a series of short "tech videos" ?
I would like the next one to talk about rocker/concave/stiffness.

Small fins are 3/4" wake fins! I roll with the slingshot fins off my wake boards for my boot board. I use reg fins for my strap board.

Yeah, they're both pretty big, lol. And he doesn't really say anything informative. Pretty lame vid.

gotta love those small fins on twin tips for sliding, can even be fun when wave surfing.

I think he means and I could be wrong, is that he is talking about turning the board 90 degrees and then using the small waves/chop/flattest water as a slider.. I do this often and have fun with it but I haven't seen anyone else do it
