bought my first wakeboard last season off craigslist. 05 hyperlite murray. came with no fins. the board seems to slip out from under me real easy. im not any good yet so it may just be me. should i get fins, or just learn without them. if i should get some, what size? i looked at them and saw the different sizes and thought i should get some advice. will all the fins fit on my old board?

Hey mate, I'd say give finless a go. Riding without fins will teach you to edge properly and help with board control. I gave up fins in 07 and have never looked back. Usually the 'built in' fins are more than enough for any board. My 2c but I feel that fins are overrated. (I ride both boat and cable FYI)

If you feel like you need fins, buy fins. Smaller the better I'd say. How many fins does that board accommodate.

That board does not have any built in (aka molded) fins to speak of. It will be very slippery without any fins on it. It came from the factory with 4 one inch fins. I'd try and find some decent .8" A-wings.

I'd definitely at least try fins. If you don't like them you can always take them off. Some Hyperlite 0.8" fins for $10 here:

If it is sliding out from under you too much go ahead and try some fins. After riding finless, you will feel like you are locked on rails!
