No shops on Oahu have them yet. I even went to surftec who makes his board and they have not even hear of them. Much appreciated.

They should be out soon! I've used them a few times now and like them in my wide tailed board... super powerful, stiffer than the Gerry middle fin and bigger too... probably work great in powerful Hawaiian stuff- I'm going to mix and match that middle with some GL sides... never stop experimenting!

808: If you're ever in SD and want to try 'em just email me at: john@paddlesurf.net

Ohhh, I'm going to be keeping my eyes open for them. No chance of them coming out in FCS is there? I'm still hunting for a legit thruster set for my ripper.

They're interesting- the middle is slightly larger than the sides- lot's of hold and drive... not a "twangy" off the bottom feeling like you get from a flexy fin but a stomp-the-back-foot and jam kind of feeling.

Thanks John, keep up the good work on your site. I have learned allot from it.  It was love at 1st site when I saw your write up about these bad boys.  I love to experiment with fins also just not do it in big surf though.   ;D learned that the hard way.  I might have to order these site unseen.

I've been surfing the Mitcho's for about a month and dig them.  John's description of the way they feel is spot on.  I surf with Kevin Krohn the Futures SUP rep.  He's a great guy.  If you want info on the fins you can e-mail him at Kevin@futuresfins.com

What kind of board are you riding them in. I am going to ride them in my XWide 9'11" ripper.

I ride a 10'0" Fanatic Fly Wood.  I was using the G.Lopez thruster set up, which is a great set up, but I like the Mitho's much better.
