How many of you ride without the center fin. It just seems like a very long center fin. And also, do we need to fill the holes?

I use a .9 fin.

I use a 1.0 short base for the center, but I'm thinking of taking it out.
You don't need to fill the holes with anything.

When I first started riding my Balance I rode without the center fin. It made doing surface spins a little easier.

However, I have been really focusing on my edging this season, trying to get comfortable with a bigger pop. I put the center fins back in and it has helped tremendously with my edging, thus giving my more pop off the wake.

I suppose it's a preference thing, being what you are more comfortable with for your riding style?

I took them out on day one, and never put them back

i am coming over from an absolute. i figured out it was too small for me and moved up to a balance 143. the absolute was pretty loose.

i busted my front center fin off riding doubles and rode with one for a while. i couldnt even feel the difference when i rode switch so i took the other one off too. it seems like one less fin to get caught on sliders.

I ride my Balance w/o center fins and love it. It gets a little squirrely in chop though.

your not edging properly if you have to have a center fin. you shouldn't need it at all....i am riding the Omega without the center fin and I can edge just as hard as the next guy. The Omega has tiny molded fins....i mean super tiny.

yeah, take the center fin out and you will know right away if you are using your edge or using the fin.
