last Sunday I went to the park and it was actually the first day that I had a bad time. It was extremely busy and I busted ass pretty bad in a kicker and hurt my arm with the board(got some nice bruises to show for it). At the end of the day I decided to try riding without the fins, so I removed them to try it out.
The thing was like soap, the board is everywhere but were you want to be , you realy have to work your edges to turn the thing. It's sort of riding your snowboard with very very very dull edges. On the bright side I managed to ride switch for the first time .
Most of the extreme guys have either very small fins or non, but for me at the time being I need fins. Although some boards have nice size fins built into them.
So today I installed the fins again, but I moved them backward a little to see what happens. I would buy smaller fins but they are mad expensive, I am waiting to wear this ones out before making another investment.

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.
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
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
