hey guys, my board is VERY slippery...my parents bought it for me w/out my testing it, and i dont have the money to get a new one. it has the original fins on it. It's a hyperlite RPM, and i have a hard time sticking jumps becuase it always slips out. any ideas?

I may not be the best to give advice, but here are a couple of things I can offer. 1) Try finding longer fins. 2) Try sticking your edge better...just lean on that edge, and eventually it will hold. Don't lean too far though.

I doubt its the board. Check your technique. Video tape yourself and then see if there is something you can do to fix the prolbem.

Lucas,
do you have a picture of your board? I think we actually used that same board in testing, but Hyperlite had a different name for it at the time with different graphics. The problems we had with it was that it would slide out on landings. Anyway, we might be able to help you out. We know a little about fins around here .
