IS 101 09 best fin
 
Hi there, next month i will be surfing in a very flat water lake, pls if someone can let me know which could be the best fin for my board for speed sailing at 110 degrees, my weight is 70 kilos and usualy wind blows around 19/21 kts and my sail for those conditios is a Koncept 6.6 , my current fin is the Deboichet 36 cm but seems large for what i need. Any advise will be appreciated.
Thx.

Hi Willy;

Which fin model you have?

All the best

Hi Remi,
Sorry for the missing detail, mine is an SL2 36cm that glides perfect for slalom but now i need one for speed match race in about 110 degrees, could be a Venom or Tectonics but don't imagine which size.
Rgs.

Hi Willy, Im not sure you would want to go much smaller than a 34 in the 101.
If you were going broarded than 110 degrees you could perhaps go to a 32.
Ive had good results with the C3 venoms penty of control and range.

Hi Willy,

Ok SL2 is a very good alround fin, but the SL4 give more speed and confort. In normal condition we don't go under 34 for this board but in your special case may be the 32 will be good, but I will try fore sure the 34 first.

Hope this help

All the best

Thx Vando & Remi,
I see that from very different places of the world both have same opinion so I will go for a 34, don't know yet if Deb sl4 as already have sl2 36 that is very fine or a Venom 34 that seems to be great.

You can also try from www.vectorfins.com the canefire 34. It is a great fin and has had great results with many pros also.

Thx Nonopr for your advise, (but no any friend of mine had tested any Canefire yet to have references about them), now it wil be more difficult to me to choose a fin brand as now have three to choose from! and no any local store have any of them and we here must import them from country of origin through courier, HaHa.....
But as I am in a hurry, I'll take a desition about it in a few days.

No need to test any fin:
Here is the scoop:
From the top 45 pro in the PWA Slalom circuit:
Deboichet Sl4 over 15-20 of them,
Vector Fins Canefire over 10-15 of them,
C3 Venoms over 5-10 of them.
I ride Canefire from Vector Fins, But If the Deboichet were easily available I will be using Deboichet SL4 in bigger sizes and Canfire in smaller sizes. But I have not found any difference between Vector and Deboichet via GPS reading in that board.

I'm very happy w/ my C3 Venom 36 on my 08' IS 101, NP RSS MK3 7.0 sail. I weigh 70kg. It replaced my techtonics goldwing 34.

Boogie at C3 is also quick to respond to email. They ship out very quick. It took about 6-7 working days to get to me here in San Francisco. Very good value.

I also have the venom 28, 30 for my 08' IS 86, NP RSS MK3 5.5 and 6.2

You can go 1 size bigger if you weigh 80+ kg.

Dan
