smaller fin for s-type 115

I have a S-type 115. Great board. It includes the standard fin. I use a North Sails Daytona 7.3 m2 and it just runs perfect!

With more wind I use a Daytona 6 m2. I think I should use a smaller fin than.

What smaller fin and which size do you advise?

Thanks in advance!

I've got the s-type 115 (2005-2006-2007).

My set-up with the 2007 (I'm 190cm and +90kg)

overdrive 5.5 with select lightning evo 31cm or drake slalom pro 34cm
overdrive 6.5 with drake slalom pro 34cm
mega xr 7.4 with stockfin or drake slalom pro 40cm

I use the s-type for just blasting on flatwater/choppy lakes in the netherlands.

Thanks! I also surf in the Netherlands. Dutch might have been easier to communicate...

Thanks for your tip. I just bought my 115 this year. I'am gonna try the same fins as you use.

Right, if you want to explore the upper wind range and playful character of the ST115 you can certainly use freeride/freemove (raked, lower AR, broader outline at base) fins around 30cm. Depends a bit on actual fin and rider weight etc, but typically that is fine.
