A Quote from a kite surfer............................., so how about fins on twin-tips?
"......* Twin-tipper talking to twin-tipper :
"When I get a waveboard, I'll be able to ride waves properly."
* Strapped guy talking to strapped guy :
"When I get rid of the straps, I'll be able to ride waves properly."
* Strapless guy talking to strapless guy :
"When I get rid of the kite, I'll be able to ride waves properly."
Seen many articles recently on fins and are they worthless, unless in chop in regards to going upwind. Mark shinn did a perspective on fins, 4 riders or varying ability, 4 boards exactly the same and all different fins and or course a control.... A board with no fins.
You hold an edge not a fin and some of the newer boards with 3D flex feel more like snowboards. The rider who could go upwind the best rode upwind regardless of the fin configuration.
Lou Wainnman(?SP) also recently hetalked about in ideal conditions fins are a restriction as it prevents you from landing sideways out of a crazy trick.
look at awake, unhooked and any that have been posted...?
