Saw an Old School poster today. Yea, those 'Duck Feet' fins sucked and were hell on the ankles and Achilles.

Very cool. And yes the duck flippers sucked but jungle boots and rocket fins wasn't much of an improvement.

Great poster.

I had some pussy ankles.

Jungle boots, Israeli desert boots, rubber booties...none of it worked. After the awhile, the pain just got numb.

And there's always someone like Bad Brad D who leads you in doing 300 flutter kicks while wearing rocket fins on the beach before doing a 2k fin. The only pleasure was that he did it with us.
