Simply^Ride I like fins, the more research I do I find out that they really limit your riding as far as spins go. My new board has molded fins and it has a middle option fin that is really small .85. I will try riding with it first and see how it goes with it and its to hard to spin it I will remove it and learn how to ride without it.

This is a test

Thoris well i have Obrian clutch, It has the molded fins so yesterday i decided to go finless and all i can say is OMG is great. It feels like a snowboard. I am also learning how to ride switch which is fun . My only problem is my =back leg hurts way to much by the time i make it past the 2nd lap

maybe my stance is wrong i just dont know

dipshit13 yea alot of pros go finless lol. but yea wakeboarding is an up and coming sport. its not nearly as popular as snowboarding mainly because of the fact that you need a boat. gas isnt too great these days either lol. well you got another wakeboarder lol, i hope this section of the forms kicks off too
06-10-2008 07:31 PM
Simply^Ride for me it wasn't that enjoyable at all, as matter of fact i only did two laps and then I let go the rope. It's just to loose to get anything done, but then again I am sure some pros disagree with me.

It's cool to have another wakeboarder in the forum, I have been trying to get this forum started but its been kind of slow.

dipshit13 but if riding finless is that hard with the board slipping out from under you and all itl probably give you hella good balance for snowboarding hahah :P
well, if you get good at going finless

dipshit13 yah i dont have a cable park for miles. i have a boat and my local lake (irondequouit bay or lake ontario)
06-10-2008 06:44 PM
Simply^Ride Well I ride cable park, those kids trash a board in about 3 months. Of course it might take me about 8 years to trash mine , as most of my riding is light.
06-10-2008 06:30 PM
dipshit13 yea thats a downside but that will take a few years of rough riding. i have a hyperlite premier 136. basically all hyperlite boards have moulded fins like that
06-10-2008 06:15 PM
Simply^Ride Yeah some boards have really good designs as to the fins integrated into it, the problem with those boards is that if the fins wear down then the board is garbage, you got to buy a new one. But then again those damn fins cost about $100 and you still get the wear in the middle of the board.

dipshit13 yea i rode with fins last season. im dying to try it finless maybe itl handle more like my snowboard. ive got molded-in fins on my board so i should be ok without fins :P
