Check out this clip that was posted on The Beach Telegraph. Yeah it's a formula fin, but if it's bending like this, you know more humble skegs are giving it up to a lesser degree. I had been a flex skeptic...now I believe. I Believe!

Yeah, very interesting Michael. My formula fins are big, thick, touch carbon. It's really hard to imagine that much flex. Also, think of the load on the fin box.

The vid is squeeshed! You should change the size to 480 x 385.

That is super duper cool. Also cool how glassy the water looks before the cameraman submerges. Definitely some light-wind planing going on there.

That is the coolest vid, Mike. I am definitely going to be using it during the fluid dynamics unit this year.
