Oh my god! he’s changed the world!!!
It’s better now!
Seriously, I’d be interested to check ’em out but man the hype overload is a little much!
I guess fiberglass fins are passe’?

It’s interesting that Marlin brings up the issue of character and the significance of it in that article because I think of him as a good role model himself in that category.

Hype or stoke?

I love my 101 fins. Proof’s in the pudding.

I’d be curious to try these on a contemporary Bonzer shortboard?
I must say though on the mini HP eggs
I really have no weight issues with the regular runners.
Still keeping an openmind, I’d love to try them but to commit on an order would be pricey.
Is there a demo bonzer with ’em (of any shape) out there?
For a bigger guy?

all thrusters 6,1 6,3 6,6 & 6.9 just in case you were wondering. Tube quiver. actually the 6,9 is getting fcs so I can use slater fins. I know I Know that could not be cheezier, but they are so nice on sick waves.

Lokbox has an FCS adapter so you can still use your old fins.

Haven’t tried the fins yet, but after seeing the fins up close at the UK Fish Fry, I can’t wait to try them out.
Marlin was one of the most sincere, yet humble people I have ever met, even taking the time to examine my boards, and give me feedback.
Stoked on the coverage for him, as he deserves it, especially after taking all the time, and money to develop the fins.
Whew! Stoked for your Marlin!
