So i messed up one of my fins on my board. Im going to order a new ones. Should i just stick with the 1.1's or should i change size? What do the smaller or bigger ones do? Thanks ahead of time

If I remember right, The Hyperlite P Wing Wakeboard Fin 1.0" gives you a quicker release and a moderate feel on the water. The trailing edge is based off Hyperlite's original ramp style fin. A Seattle style creation has a smooth turn and a quicker release off the wake. The P Wings feature a thinner profile for less drag/friction on the water and a durable aluminum construction prevents thread/insert damage. Our friends on the Atlantic side shaped the Hyperlite A Wing fin with more surface area in the trailing edge for a tighter feel on the water....OK, that was cut and pasted from here: http://www.the-house.com/fins-wake.html

I'm pretty sure that 1.2 and 1.0 refers to the "depth" of the fin. A deeper riding fin would give you a more locked in feeling and be harder to break loose.

Jesse, before you try a different fin, take them off and try finless. This leads to my answer to your question, if you feel you must have a fin, get the smallest one possible. I think they make a 0.7 fin as well? The fins 'lock' you in, so if you need that to get speed I guess they are important, but they also 'hold' as you release, so that hurts you if you want to do surface spins (or even start your spins early off the wake).
