RE: Carve 131 (2005) fin

Hi Tony,

I'm a bit lighter than you and use a 36 cm fin with 6, 6.5 and 7.3 sqm sails on my ST126. 38 cm should be OK with your 6 sqm sail, or even bigger ones as long as there is enough wind.

Thanks Roger!

Actually I want it for low wind days only, for freeride fun. And if the wind goes up, it gets very unstable (I weigh 70kg), and I thought, maybe with a 38cm fin (from the 121lt Carve for example) it will be ok for the smaller sail I use with it (6m2). What do you say?

Thanks again for your time.

Hi Tony,
You can use a smaller fin, but your upwind and early planing performance will suffer.
Why do you want to use a smaller fin?
Sandbars and water depth problems?
Something else.....?
You might go a little faster with a smaller fin, but getting the board to plane is going to be much more difficult.
If water depth is the issue, have you considered a weed fin?
Hope this helps,

Carve 131 (2005) fin


The Carve 131 (my2005) has a factory fitted 48cm fin. Has anyone tried a smaller fin on this board. Will a 38 be ok, or is it too small?
Conditions of use: 70kg, 6-8m2 sails, flat or chop, up to 5bft.
