My conclusion from the post is that more fins makes a faster (more push) board? Is this a true statement?

We do noodle wars on knee boards. See who can stay up the longest. The best thing I ever did/saw was me burying the nose of my brother in law's kneeboard at speed. He went down fast!!!

Southern Albertan's???

Lakes around Waterton are COLD! Kalispell is around 6 hours away, and I'm not sure I'd classify it as a city. It's nice water there though.
