Alton Ing from BC about the Mano's weed fins
MANO 23 AT THE GORGE
Scored a couple of 5.2 days at the Gorge. Most memorable was riding
3km upwind (see http://g.co/maps/ad4y ) from the Hook W18 knots
(Oregon - where I left my daughter in windsurfing lessons) to the
Hatchery W25 knots (Washington - to ride with friends). Pinching
upwind with only 18 knots at the Hook was effortless. Riding
overpowered in 25 knots at the Hatchery was also effortless. Most
memorable was half-way (north of Wells Island on the Washington side)
where super smooth 5' swell made gybing down backside swell a dream.
MANO 26 IN LIGHT AIR
Had a couple of light air sessions SW 16-18 at Squamish and the Mano
26 performed well on 6.0 and 5.2 with my 2010 JP 93 Freestyle Wave.
The Mano 26 delivered plenty of lift when pumping in marginal
conditions. I would recommend getting the same quiver (Mano 23 and 26)
to benefit from minimal transition effects when changing fin sizes.
