So, I am a huge fan of my Transcend. The pop and the landings are fantastic. Lately I just feel so slow riding it. I ride at 24-25mph at 75 ft. Any suggestions on my next setup?

O'Brien Natural, Coda, or wait for the Decade. All these boards have the Delta Base which greatly reduces drag and that slow feeling!

09 Transcend coming soon too.

I felt the same way on my LF Substance...rode the Lyman thinking it would be fast, it was still way too slow. Rode the O'Brien Natural and it was awesome...exactly what I was looking for. I would 100% go with the Natural, no questions asked.

I think I know what he is getting at. For me, boards seem to ride faster with the fins removed. My Transcend feels fast compared to other boards I have ridden, but I have never tried the Transcend with fins.

I just stepped up to a 142 Transcend also, which feels even faster.

Mine is 142. So taking those tiny fins off makes a difference J-Rod? I'll try it this weekend.

I would give a nod to the Natural. However, the Ibex rides pretty fast with a little more vertical pop.

I have the 142 Transcend and I have rode with and without the fins also. Big difference without the fins. I think the board feels faster and I think it releases off the wake better.
