kiki makes these fins in the java jungle using glass bottles for the template. i bought one off him back in 2007. a few days later the swell of the year hit. we were staying right down on the beach and the mega swell coupled with a full moon meant that waves were sweeping right into our pad. the sea threw a few things around and took a couple. including the fin. never got to surf it. i was back the next year and met kiki. kindly he offered me the above fin at a reduced rate and with a big grin. unfortunately i'd spent all my cash to get there. next time i'll make sure i got the spare funds. its pretty tripped out.
