Is this the carbon art speed boards or slalom?
for speed boards the KA fins that Chris L uses, as well as mal's wright TM45v7 should be the best, tec. f1 falcon probably good also (chris uses a 30cm falcon on the CAsp50)
for slalom boards.... check maui sails forum topics... i know their were some fin suggestions for CA boards there
in terms of goldwing vs falcom vs tomcat (for slalom) my opinion would be
falcon for downwind/ rough conditions from 26-32 cm
goldwing for upwind/moderate-rough conditions 28-38
tomcat for larger sizes.
really any decent brand fin should work fine- if it is possible to try before you buy do so.
hope some of this helped

I have 3 CA salom boards
55 I use vector ex 32-30-28 these work very well on rough water in Maui.
58 I use 36 -34 Rocket and 32 EX
62 I use 40-36- 34 Rockets
The carbon fins are better but are more expensive. I use carbon but have tested and used the g 10 ones.
The Rockets work great in New Zealand as the water is not as boyant or rough.
In a nutshell use the ex when it is highter wind and rough and the rocket if you need more power and lift.
Contact jeff @ vector fins
I made some coments in the Maui Sails site.

Hello my fin will be a 42cm for the 113l model, Ithink falcon are not good for big size fin, so maybe tom cat or goldwing?
