    yeah my son has a 4.5' surface retro fish that looks a lot like that. I tried to take it out one day and they made me take off the fins. I was able to stand on it and I am kinda big 6'1" 205lbs. The thing was hard to control without the fins and I did sorta get used to using an edge to hold it. Someone used to a boogie would have better luck then me but it was fun and you had the feeling like you were stealing waves. Not sure what danger fins are on a surfboard to swimmers, seams like the board itself is the danger and rubber fins would do nothing to anyone.
