I took my new CWB Faction 144 board out today for the first time. I was previously on a Liquid Force Stance 138. The first thing I noticed was how the fins on the Faction really held the board in the water. I'm used to being on the Stance without any fins. I liked how it was so greasy and I could break the board loose almost effortlessly. But with the Faction, I have to fight the fins constantly. The landings were easier and more stable, but I felt like the fins kept slowing me down, especially when I was edging. Maybe its not as fast because its a 144 and I'm used to a 138? I feel like it was the fins making the board feel more bulky though.

So, I'm thinking maybe I can get smaller fins or is it just me? The Stance was the first wakeboard I ever had, so I don't have a lot of experience. I started getting used to the fins on the Faction by the end of the day, but I still felt like I wasn't getting the speed I like. I'm confused because I've seen other posts on here that say the Faction is a really fast board.
