|I just got a new 140 marius and was looking for some feedback and what people thought about riding it finless. I road with fins today but wanna try it without. Just dont know what to expect (edging wise, how slippery it will be, landings ).|
|its pretty slippery without but i love it landings take some getting used to but once you get the feel its all good. quite forgiving with no fins also|
|I like & trust the fins for extra grip....but most that I know ride her finless.|
|I've never really liked loose boards. I even considered getting larger fins for my Marius. Something about that dead period before my edge "locks in".|
|No fins except when it the water is really choppy.|
|The board feels a little slow to me so, I like the fins so I can "dig" a little more in the water to help me keep my speed. Without the fins I tend to slip right at the top of the wake and end up on my back(like your mom).|
|I ride the 07 Marius finless. I totally understand about the "dead period before the edge locks in". It is a little more difficult to initiate your cut into the wake. |
Also, I enjoy boardslides and it's a lot easier to do w/o fins.
|No fins....with fins track too much. |
Finless is the way to go...night and day
|Its pretty hard to get traction w/o fins but when u really put your edges in you'll have it... does that make sence?? |
i ride mine finless just because i love to wip my board around and everything...
it just makes it not as agggressive and more fun (i think)
|stay with the fins on because you can,t get no pop because you can,t edge hard enough|
|^ you're steering, you need to "edge"|
|Does anyone know if the fins have changed between the 08 and 07 Marius?|
