View Full Version : Best size fin for 7,3 and s-type 115?
6th February 2007, 02:03 PM
I will need to buy a new fin for my futur s-type 115. The Drake 32 is perfect for my 6,00. But for my 7,3 North crossride, could you give me the best choice (size and profil) for a fin to boost the board for early planning and cap?

No team member, but maybe I could help.
Since Deboichets are available at competitive prices, I really can't see any reason not to give them a try. The SL2 are great performers and their moulded construction will live so much longer than any comparable performance CNC fin. It should be a good choice for a speed oriented board like the S-type, and in lighter wind you should be able to do without the added control of a less competitive/more raked/swept fin.
As for size for a 7.3 freeride, I'd go for a 36; but note I have a bias towards smallish fins.

Hallo Benjamin! Try a asymmetrical fin. Hyper Duo 34cm. 100% carbon.
No spin out. Only for speed: Hyper Duo 30 cm
Le Wo Duo 30cm
B+F Speed 30cm
They all made top speed between 40 and 42 knots. Wolfgang

I now use for my s-type 115 (2007) the stock drake 38cm fin with my 7,5 (gps 2sec max = over 30 knots with this combination)
On lowwind days I use my pro slalom 40cm fin from my insonic 133 to get more lowend.

I am using Lessacher hiper duo 34 fin with my S type 115 (2006) with 6,0 sail. This combination is great! For 7,5 sail I use stock Drake fin.
