I have a Caddy 142, and I like it but I always feel like the board wants to go switch on me. Maybe I am not on the edge enough. I was wondering if this might be due to the lack of a center fin, it just has 4 molded fins. How would a Ricky G feel, since I beleive it has a removable center fin system. Is it a much faster board than the Caddy, how does it compare on pop and landings.

Thanks for your help!

im getting one in the mail this week. I will let you know after this weekend. I would think the caddy would do you fine and maybe you are riding it properly. Normally boards without a center fin have to be ridden on its edge right. I have ridden all of my boards without a center fin. Its preference, but it takes a little to get used to.

Yeah the caddy is pretty much flat on the bottom, and i found you have to ride it pretty tail heavy to get a lot of speed out of the board. I really like the board, but now that the ricky g comes in a 142 i mite have to pick one up.
