However a lot of traditionalist bowlers feel that bowling on "wood" lanes is the true showmanship of a bowler. The ability to change with the conditions, since each lane can very greatly from one to the other.

How do you bowl on synthetic lanes?

Assuming you've bowled on wooden lanes, you typically want to throw the ball a little slower, or try to lay it down closer to the foul line. The syntetics are a little more slick than the wood so you need to ball to have a chance at hooking. I usually target a little closer than the arrows and try to slow my feet down. You can also switch to a more aggressive bowling ball.
