    "What you carry in,carry out!"Well,they wouldn't let me in with my soupy bowels then!
    Looks lush.Funny,they have those feral cocks on Kauai too!
    Re:Dafins,I've only snapped on strap-that was because it was too small and I tried to really stretch strap over heel r.t pushing toes up when fin and foot wet.
    If they fit right,the straps shouldn't have be stretched at all to go over heel.They should feel too loose!
    Anyhow,tough luck.

    Looks amazing mate!

    Very Happy

    Re DaFins, don't pull them on by the strap. Put your foot in, then pull the strap over your heel.
