I have one and it's awesome. Believe it or not once you get used to it it's super easy to get up on. It's pretty easy to do 360s and stuff on them and they're just fun to mess around on. I have the twin fin but on smaller cleaner days I take the fins out and surf it. It does get harder to surf with the fins out as the surf gets bigger, but I have noticed an improvement with regular surfing especially popups.
