As a beginner what do I look for in Fin configuration. I noticed some of the boards have 3 on each end some have 1 on each end. What are the pros/cons and how do the boards behave differently?

Kirk,
Different boards are designed for different fin configurations. You can also change how a board rides by changing the fins. Are you looking to buy a board, or do you already have a board and thinking about changing the fins?

boards with three fins are more for advanced riders id say they feel slippery on transitions but once you master them they are the way to go id say, 2 fins are gonna be much more stable cause of there depth too, 3 fin boards have small fins and most two fin boards have longer curved fins, also carving and doing flat water tricks are much easier on 3 fin boards, ive got a belmont dna with 6 fins and i just take them off all together, i guess it all depends on your skillz man!!
