“Surfing” usually brings to mind standing on a board of varying lengths. But, there’s a whole subculture of alternative surf styles using different surf craft. Mats, Paipos, handplanes, and even lunch trays have their own devotees. Where a surfboard provides a lot of buoyancy, these alternative surf craft tend not to, and need more propulsion to catch waves. A good set of swim fins are essential and these Yucca’s are some of the cleanest we’ve seen. Designed by a dedicated bodysurfer of The Wedge, they use tall rails and a stiff blade to provide power on both up and down kicks. With three different rubber densities offered, you can get the right fin for your legs and your local break.
