Lot of info about the isonics on the forum what really help to choose the right board! I did it and I get the isonic111 just now. Please help me out to find the right trimming for the board, based on your experience, complete all the relevant info here in one place.

I'm 184cm 85kg. Sails are 9,0 7,7 6,6 race sails.

1. Footstrap positions? Front or back, which holes is the right from the opportunities?
2. Where is the right mastfoot position? (you talk about the whole mast track or just the active area, without the back appr. 2cm?)
3. Which Deboichet SL2 fin work the best for 9,0?
4. Which Deboichet SL2 fin work the best for 7,7?
5. Which Deboichet SL2 fin work the best for 6,6?

To save your time you can write your answers just after the relevant number…

Thanks a lot for your help,

Hi Willy,

Please excuse the delay/s- April was a bad and busy month for us..

Strap positions : Full back for flatter water, lighter wind speed; otherwise with open water choppier conditions, the middle position on FRONT and REAR straps allows a more balanced, calming stance over the iS which allows the rider to push-on when otherwise might be backing off..

Mast track; well, we generally just consider the "active area";

Typically :

9.0m : 50-70% FWD
7.7m : 50%
6.6m : 50% (maybe back a bit [30-40%] on flat water speed)

SL2 Fins

Typically (80-90kg):

9.0 Lightwind 42-44cm
9.0 Midwind 40cm
9.0 Overpowered 38cm

7.7 Lightwind 38-40cm
7.7 Midwind 36cm
7.7 Overpowered 34cm

6.6 Lightwind 36-38cm
6.6 Midwind 34cm
6.6 Overpowered 32cm

(No big suprises there, and relatively easy to build a nice 3 fin iS111 quiver to cover all ranges)

Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Cheers ~ Ian

Hi Ian,
it would be great if you tell us when a 80 kg guy should switch from 9,0 to 7,8 and then to 6,8 .
I know it depends from many factors that are very difficult to right evaluate but it can help to have an idea....
thank you
