    My gas station-grade scraper was not up to the task of last night's snowfall in Chicago. On the other hand, I did have three pairs of fins in the car...

    I tried using a plastic discount card to scrape my windscreen, but I only got 10% off.

    Until I saw this, I used to feel bad about kicking the tips of my XT's on the side of the boat to get my foot seated in before pulling the straps on. Not any more!

    I am amazed someone here has not said "use a force fin".

    This is definitely not a place for split fins for sure :)

    This is the one time that you want to use a silting kick.
