Did you have the molded rubber FF or the Neoprene ones? I like the Neoprene ones cause they didn't ruin my boots (I wear booted Hip waders).
Those Hot Spots are crazy looking. For surf boarders? Interesting Can get the momentum on the up and down stroke like with the scuba style, huh?
On really ruff waters, I still prefer my FF because they are a stiffer rubber and can dig in better than the Omegas
