Take all fins off surf to do tricks?

Anybody try this for 360's and other tricks? Should I just learn to rotate the board with fins on?

yeah, the board will certainly spin well, but after your rotation its going to be hard to stick if that makes sense. you're going to want something to grab after the spin. if you have a sharp edge that might be enough, if not you'll want a fin of somesort. its alsongoing to help with the speed you will need to catch up after the spin.

No fins is like riding a piece of ice. You can go down to one fin to start a 360.

I do 360's with 4 fins on my soulcraft but this board is a custom and easier and faster to ride.

I have two fins on the my Hyperlite Broadcast. When I first got the board i had the standard three fins but it was hard to break loose so i took out the center fin. The board is a little slippery but the consensus from all the rider is they like it now that they are used to it and can break it loose for tricks.

I have a friend with a cove and they only run the center fin. For that shape of that board it is better then with two side fins where it just wont break loose.

It really depends on the board, the wake and the rider(s). Just try different fin combinations and see what you like.
