In this example, only a user (via request) can implement the editfins method if they are also associated with the surfer who added the fins in the first place.

from functools import wraps

def surfer_matches_user(test_func):
    def _wrapped_view(request,surfer_id):
        if int( == int(surfer_id):
            return test_func(request, surfer_id)
            return redirect('/{}/'.format(
    return _wrapped_view

def editfins(request, surfer_id, fins_id):
    fins = get_object_or_404(Fin, pk=fins_id)
    form = FinsForm(request.POST or None, instance=fins)
    if form.is_valid():
        return redirect('/{}/'.format(surfer_id))
    return render(request, 'surferprofile/updatefins.html',
            {'fins': fins, 'form': form})
