I have big feet and wear booties. On my 2010 isonic 101, I had to replace the drake straps and also use the additional inserts to widen the straps further.

Also, to place the straps a bit...

My last experience with Drake straps was a 2010 isonic. I wear booties and do usually widen straps by using wider set inserts. Nevertheless the drake straps gripped the booties too much and always...

I'm using 40cm fin, and it's doable but...

I'm 86 kilos. I've used an 8.5 on the isonic, but indeed it felt like the biggest reasonable sail. I was using a 40cm goldwing and it was ok. Was looking for 44-42cm to get extra power. Can't...

46cm fin in isonic 101 2010

I'm experimenting with an old fin's interantional slalom fin in 46cm in my isonic 101 for extremely low winds and 8.5 sails. At the very low end, the fin planes like crazy and goes upwind easily. ...

That's great - I've also had a lot of satisfaction with my foray into formula. The uphauling does suck, but you learn not to drop your sail pretty fast. For me, the key with uphauling is to do it...

Thanks Sean and Karolis,

Any advice on buying the "expensive" fins used?

I understand that g10 gets soft with use - the modern big fins are carbon, right? So, there should be no issue with...

I set the straps one notch wider using the additional footstrap inserts. It's much easier to get in/out of the straps even with the booties. No more problems. I decided it would be...

Moving straps inboard on iSonic 2010

I took out my iSonic 101 2010 for a first time yesterday. Great, fast board - BUT - because of my huge, thick bootied feet, I'm having hard time getting out of the front straps during the jibes. ...

Thanks Roger, I will sleep better. The gouge is near the bottom of the board - not where the fin bolts attach.

What happened is that for mysterious reasons, one of my tuttle fins have the fin...

Finbox in iSonic

While increasing the diameter of the fin screw holes in my 2010 isonic 101, I somehow managed to make a small gouge/chip in the side of the box. Now, I know that I was probably stupid to mess with...

I would add two more things:
-bodyfat - even 5 pounds extra weight seem to make windsurfing more effort. I tend to use boards right on the edge of uphaulability, so the extra load really impairs...

Fin fit for iSonic

I'm contemplating purchasing a used iSonic or perhaps Futura. The question is whether Tectonics fins fit without sanding/shimming into these boards. I'll be sharing fins with a mike's lab,...
