With a center rear foot strap you do not have the leverage to control a 56 cm fin

Jean-Marc,
I once found the limit.

Unreg,
The Rio S works nicely for lighter sailors and small beginners.
It goes pretty well in the 7-12 knots range, but it does not have the "glide"

Is this a sailboard/windsurfer or something else?...
