Puakea rudders?

Due to the current Zombie Apocalypse I'm lucky enough to be spending alot more time paddling. I paddle a Kahe Kai. When I surf I sometimes feel I could use a little more rudder. I also venture close to reef and have done serious damage. Thinking it might be cool to have a few rudders available depending on my "mood" (yes I'm bored). Anyone have any experience with Puakea's Grip or Flatwater rudders?

I have the flatwater rudder for my gemini and have been on a hurricane with one. It's only 4" of rudder and only really suited for flatwater. It's much harder to turn and manuever your boat. The trade-off is you have less drag.

I took it off and switched to the standard rudder because it was difficult to simply dock the boat next to a dock.
