almost

 I had almost convinced myself that I already had enough fins to last a lifetime.


Then Stevie D posted up some favorable information on the new Voit Duck Feet over at Surfmatters.

Now I don't know...

I've always been a vanilla Duck Feet kind of guy


well with a few modifications
just to make things interesting

I swear I can stop any time 


But you have to have summer fins, 

ones that you can wear with no fin sock, then a pair that works best with fin socks, then another larger pair for winter when I wear a full booty.

Then there is the pair you are breaking in so if one of your regular fins fails ...

That pair that I bought at the garage sale for 5 bucks that were pretty thrashed but in a good way,

Oh then there are the UDTs I've been whittling away drunken monkey style for years now. Eventually they will be perfect

There are the Churchills that I won in the raffle that work really good and basic black goes with everything in my closet...

and I had been meaning to get a pair of Da Fins...

Now the vanilla Voit rubber blend isn't vanilla anymore and is even better!


So I'm asking for your for help

I need a new story to tell my wife as to why I need another pair of new fins. 

She sees thru my normal BS like plate glass

so I think out sourcing the reasoning is best

The more bizarre the the story better!

Lets see what ya got in the comments section ...

"surfing makes me a better person and a better husband. a new pair of fins costs less than a tank of gas and if I don't like them someone on Swaylocks will want them."

far fetched, but crazy enough it just might work! I knew I could depend on you Steiny!

"A new pair of fins for me, and a new pair of shoes for you!"

Paul, If only my wife was a shopper! Sadly I have more fins that she has shoes...

Well, tell her all your friends have them and that you are worried you will slip in to a deep depression and be unable to cook her pizza anymore if you cannot own a pair too!
the other one could be "steiny's wife let him get some"

Take her, to her favourite restaurant ( the kind of place that takes your jacket on arrival). Have a pair of the new fins hanging on the coat pegs, make sure your the last couple out, bung the manager a few bucks to insist that their yours! Voila.

Prana,
Remember we’re not to count fins that haven’t been worn in a year!
I’ll see if I can find the Memo for her. :-)

Good sir, where did you get the three color Voit fins? I am in the market for a new pair and I can't seem to find those anywhere at all.
