3 fins probably has much wider appeal from a amateur perspective.
Think i may try order one of these and bash up and down the english channel a bit, take on the local formula boards and dinghies.
would be very interested to see what it is like for reaching with just the back fin . would be a very fun thing to do i reckon- high speed in rough terrain is something i'd like to do more of- TT and speedboards are only really fast in the flat inshore. not of interest to me.
it may have taken 20+ years but I have been waiting patiently for the kiting equivalent of This:

They have a few demo boards here that I've been out on. If you ask me to compare the board to other race boards I cannot, but I can say this...it is a ton of fun!!!
Going at high speeds over the chop is fantastic. Different sized fin completely changes how the board handles...it is very different from riding a regular board..you have to ride it flat. The upwind angle is insane..well worth a try.
