    Don't take his NS remarks personally. If you are not from/in Southern California, you get reminded.

    If you quote dive history do research and quote history correctly ...

    There is an ample supply of late model dive historians who preface a statement with
    I think
    I suppose
    I heard
    And the big one--- My instructor told me

    Duck Feet is a Specific Fin -- Not a generic term for a type of fin

    Now you -- and others know

    Where are your pictures and description ?
