I think most pros use fins. But they, like us have preferences aswell. The pros that go finless prefer to go finless because they like that 'loose' feeling finless gives you.

It's all preference - some use fins, some don't. Like vip20882000 said, a lot of pros like a loose feeling board, so they design them with molded in fins so they don't need a center fin.

well parks rides with fins so i think everyone should use fins. lol. most of if not all of the pros who ride finless have molded in fins on the board. these fins are all that is nesscesary to give the board enough tracking and molded fins are more durable on slieders as well. I think most boards that pros ride finless are designed to be ridden that way since they are designed by the pros for themselves.
