HELP!!! Carbon fins Warped!

Hey guys so I recently bought a pair of carbonara GFT fins about 2 months ago Ive only used them on one trip. But when i took them out of my dive bag about a month ago (they were only in the bag a few days), I Noticed one of them is bent/warped to one side. Have any of you experienced this before and if so do you know how I can fix them?

I posted below a picture of the warped fin and the undamaged one camera held level

Thanks your help will be greatly appreciated!

You sure it wasn't like this when you got it? Most manufactures have some slight "warping" in their carbon. You won't notice it in the water.

I'very owned 3 carbons pairs and every one had just one fin that was bent like that. It didn't affect performance
