Hey everyone here's the deal, this is my first year on the water and I progressed alot, most of the year I rode my obrien custom 135 with 2 removable fins. The fins were real big and other than the 2 removeable ones there is no other fins. Recently I had an injury to my chest from sliders so I couldn't do big jumps. The only way I could ride was take out my fins and do surface stuff. I got so use to riding finless that when I started jumping again I never put them back in. After riding 3-4 weeks finless I can almost land a tantrum behind my little tiny wake as well as land as big of d ups as my boat drives. My season only has about 2 pulls left since I'm in MI but for next year, I'll be getting probably the LF team 134. Should I ride that finless? With the 4 outer fins in? Or get use to riding with all fins?

You ride the Team ideally with the four cupped fins only... the board is still going to be loose but the fins will lock in when you need to edge hard... It is a really GOOD thing that you got good riding your board finless, it means you are using correct edgeing technique, and its just alot more fun that way! Good luck and get out and nail that tantrum!

I would stay finless. I switched boards which gave me much less fin in the water and helped me to improve. I believe most pro's ride finless.

Ya I love finless I'm just thinking about landings on teh big tricks and cutting in for d-ups can be hard sometimes. I can do the tantrum with fins but without I have more trouble.

You wont have a problem with "grippy" fins on the Team!
