Hi there,

The best strap positions is:

Front strap foot: in the center section

Back strap foot: in the center section.

fin all the way in the back or you can adjust it by sliding it a bit in the center of the fin box.

The setup i use mostly with 5.2 and 4.8 sails.

hi taty
got another question for you. what fins do you use? and what size?
at the moment i just cut mine down, would you notice much difference in performance from a cut down fin to a proper freestyle fin?

congratulations for the sylt result by the way.

Hi There,

I use on the flare 88 16 or 15 cm choco fins.

Flare 98 16, 18 cm fins

I proper fin could work better.
