View Full Version : 70cm fins for Apollo?

Hi, at the risk of sounding stupid, here goes.

I was wondering if someone could advise me of which 70cm fin would give me the nearest possible "LIGHT WIND" performance to the 75cm fin that comes with the board? Or at least, keep me ahead of the other guys on their regular formula boards. I know that nothing can quite match those extra 5cm. But i'm hoping for a magic solution.

And, which 70cm fin would keep me from watching the 160's and 161's flying past me when the wind gets over 10 to 12 knots? I know that I will not be able to stop them overtaking me. I would just like them to work a little harder to do so.

I'm 90kg and 185cm tall. I use 11.9m warp for light wind. And 9.6m for strong wind.

I've been reading the thousands of replies that Remi has given regarding fins, and am now too confused to remember anything.

Any help would be most appreciated.

Hi JJay,

For ligth wind condition with a 70 cm, the best solution is the R19 soft -- rake + 8cm.

As I explain already the F161 is definitely faster over 15 knots, no chance for the Apollo, but you can increase your perfomances over 15 knots with a R13 soft rake + 8cm

All the best
