w.o.t.d. wild set of fins in the pic,can anyone explain WTF they are all about ?
took the words right outta my mouth...optical illusion maybe? one shot looks like they raked forward?
oops...slow internet...last few pics not optical illusion, just plain out there! seem to perfom well enough though.
Just to add to their uniqueness , they appear to be fixed down with three fcs plugs . could the board be a five fin setup of plugs . and the side fins are like a Hydrofoil or tube cut to a thong or y shape looped over or around back to the other plug ?
Regardless , it reeks of Jetski assist . can almost see the wake in the back ground of one of the shots ?

They're called 3-D fins. Don't know much about them except they're used by a few guys in WA. Here's a short vid: www.vimeo.com/28101251
Would've thought they'd increase drag but I'm no hydro engineer...
is roy stewart a hydro engineer ? or had to much hydro, check his site for crazy fins,roy stewart surfboards
