This weekend ive been trying a surface 360 but i have huge fins(sr200's) on my board so im finding it really hard to get rotation. Can you sugest wot fins would be best to buy next.

Remember the post where Lloyd Murray wrote that Shaun's boards were stolen and he described the new model that they were testing out? That it had two fins each side, one was molded and the other wasn't which would make it easier to ride switch. <BR> <BR>Has anybody tried using different sized fins on their boards? I have the Belmont 136 and was thinking of taking out the center fins and having a big and a little on each edge. Yeah, i know, i could just try it, but i wont get out to ride again till 2 weekends from now...

Speaking of fins...could someone help me out. I have a liquid force with original fins on it. I have been riding for 3 summers now and need help getting past wake to wake jumps. Would getting smaller fins help with 180's and riding switch?

No, smaller fins won't help with either and may make it more difficult. The only way to learn to ride switch is to practice - a lot! It will take a while to get comfortable so try to ride switch every time you go out. At first you should just try 1 wake 180's since they are really easy to do. It also may be easier for you to do a TS 180 than HS since you land facing the boat on a TS 180.

So you're saying its me and not just the equipment, eh?...darn <BR> <BR>now my lack of air...that's solely cause I'm not riding behind a 2007 model X-Galaxy, right?!

Bill thanks for the info. Going out this weekend and I'll see how it goes. I'm thinking I need the youngsters to give me a wakeboard camp <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0>
