i have a star-board futura 111 ltd but i want a new fin ihave a 25 cm but i think that he is to short for my board

Yes, very much too small.
Futura 111's are supplied with a 38 cm (Drake 380 mm Freeride Glide) fin and the recommended fin range is 30 cm-42 cm.
Your 25 cm is smaller than any fin supplied with a Futura (including the 93 ltr).

What size sails you will use and your body weight?

7th December 2009, 04:48 PM
my sails 5.5 6.0 6.5 7.0 and my body weight 53kg

Hi Mau888,

The recommand size fin for this board is the 38 but of course cannot cover all this sails, so you need basicly minimum 2 fins. The C3 Venon work very well on this board if you want really to upgrade your board. 32 and 36 should be ok for your body weight and size sails.

Hope this help

All the best

Consider keeping the fin and change to a smaller board.

I feel you have a board and sail quiver more suited to a person 30kgs heavier than yourself and you may have control problems.

Think about a Kode 94 or Futura 93 and replacing your 7.0 sail with a 4.5.

I'm 53kg as well and I use a 29cm fin on my 106l board. Although I sometimes go into spinout, especially after jumps, I tried an 31cm Tabou freeride fin and it really felt like I was dragging seaweed, so I'm sticking to the smaller size.

I use a 6.0m and 5.3m mainly and get spinout with both, so unless you're going to be using a much smaller board and sails from 4.5 - 5.5, 25cm may be on the small side...
