M pro right 2.75 needed

Hi folks. Meha Boost..I Lost a right side fin at porth Towan. I don't suppose anyone has a spare around before I have to get a full set.
Alternatively a set of 3" would do if you have any you want rid of.
Thanks.

Back rest/block

Could you post a pic of your back rest block if you use one please. I have a Boost with a rachet system which could potentially damage the cockpit so I'm looking at alternative set ups.
Also suggestions of where to get cost effective closed cell foam would be useful.
Thanks

Re: Waveski/surf kayak advice

My personal journey was from ww paddling into surf kayak. The move is easy & the benefits are huge. Use kayaks holiday their value so perhaps avoid top end performance for a season then if you like it trade up. My budget was limited so I went Mega Neutron then to Mega Boost over a few seasons.

Re: What do you do if your mate is swimming?

Plenty of buoyancy in the kayak really helps when Your swimmer has a good chance of using the boat as a board & surfing in. I would then shadow a safe distance to one side if they want me there & in case I'm needed. & I know this is debated a lot but wearing a buoyancy aid/impact vest makes a huge d...
