Yes, there are different models: at least two different lengths; did you purchase the longer ones?
If not, is it possible that your scales are a bit off? 55 g. or 77 g. is very light, so it's easy...

Alex,

If you leave the fin permanently on the board, over time, sand will find its way eventually between the fin and the box, and it will be super difficult to remove the fin when you must, at...

You should go for either the Kode Wave 83, or the 78. Obviously, the 78 may feel a tad smallish to go out in 18 knots with 4.9, and the 83 may feel a bit biggish when you are on your 3.7.

Alex,
To get a precise answer, you should indicate your weight, and whether you sail in mostly flat, or mostly choppy, conditions.
However, the ideal board size for your 7.9 is normally the 107,...

Kode wave or kode freewave for freeride?

I am a slalom sailor, and I do not do any wave sailing. Sometimes, I sail in "nuclear" winds on a spot that gets extremely choppy, and even when I use my smallest (4.3) race sail and my smallest (68...

Yes, Taty is around that weight. He was 76 kg, then he bulked up for slalom racing, and I think that he is about 80 kg now.

The differences between a carbon iSonic, and the same model in wood, are:

Asle,

I am with Mark: a 28 elliptical-shaped slalom fin (e.g. Sonntag, Gasoil Elliptique, Deboichet Upwind) is the ticket. If you can source a Deboichet SL4 (they are super fast), then go for a 30...
