Well, I got a hell of a deal from my local boardshop on the '06 Substance 138 and couldn't pass it up. I'm definately a begineer to the sport, limited to basically w2w jumps, and some surface stuff. Anyways, I got to go out on it today for the first time. I'd previously rode an LF Evolution 138, so I have the Element bindings on the Substance. It was definately a change from my Evo. I was kind of happy, it made me work harder for what I wanted it to do. I didn't really accomplish much, as far as w2w went, but it felt good. Solid, strong and fast edging. I know it's the same rocker as the previous two years, but I'd never rode a Sub at all. I really think I can do alot more with this board, over my Evo. Also, I rode it finless, which I'm not used to. My Evo has some huge fins (I want to say 1.5"), and since I didn't even put the fins on the Substance, it felt alot different. Do you all think I should keep the fins off to progress further as a rider, or learn with the fins in then eventually take them out?

btw, if you haven't seen the '06 graphics, they're sick.

Thanks guys

leave 'em off. It's the only way to go.

for sure leave the fins off..... board isnt ment to ride with fins. when you master riding it youll be able to basically get on any board. watsons boards are ment for a tail heavy approch so you will be able to ride anything faily well. its a slow board especailly compared to your evo which is continous rocker i believe. just learn your progressive edge into the wake and the substance will be sending you plenty high!
