Hi there.

Just bought a 2008 isonic 96 on an end of season oportunity, along with a Severne Code Red 7.7
As i can't afford having more than 1 board i chose the 96 and am trying to stretch its sail range as much as i can.
My doubt now is which fin to use with this sail. I have the oportunity to buy a 2nd hand Deboichet SL2 38cm. Is it the correct size?

My weight's 70 kgs, height 1.74m

Thanks in advance 4 your atention

Hi Guri,
I used to sail a Sonic95 and Maui Sails TR-2 7.6 in '06, so not perfectly aligned with your setup but nearly so. I used it with SL 34 and the fin was a bit (a bit!) on the small side. As the SL2 is a much powerful fin, I would not suggest you the 38 for that purpose: my guess is a 36 is the perfect fit. Oh but I see you are 70 kgs, so the setup really turns into a light wind machine at your weight. Well, then maybe the 38 would do for the lighter end and slower speeds.

Hi Guri,

To use this size on this board you are at the maximum size on this board and for your weight I recommand you a SL2 36, 38 max.

All the best
