Hi,
I was reading last threads, about this issue, and I am still confused about this fin subject!!!
I have the new Futura 111 (have 65 Kgs), wich came with the 38 cms fin has you know, my questions are:

This size of fin (38) is for around 7.0 mts. sails ? What is the range recommended to use with the 38 ?

For a second fin, to sail with 5.7 and 6.4, what kind of fin (SIZE/ TYPE / BRAND),do you recommend ?

Many thanks,
Fernando

Hi Fernando,
You can extend the range of you sail by tuning it and adjusting fin size. 38 cm will do fine for an unpowered 7,0 sail or a well povered 7,8. For your 5,7 and 6,4 I would recommend a 32~33 cm fin. It will do fine for the 6,4 when well powered and you can use the 38 in unpovered conditions. I would not go below 32 cm with the 5,7 because the FU has quite a wide tail. Type of fin depends on you practice: slalom, freeride, long distance, B&J...
