The further you lean/rake it back the more/faster your board will turn upwind and
the less speed you will lose.

I agree with Marc.
The Atom 114 Duo has a center fin (if needed) and you would need to get your GF a
larger rig.

Hi Hugh,
Actually you could have a small (<32 cm) surfboard fin glassed onto the middle of the bottom of your

Hi Hugh,
My guess is that the side fins are going to be very hard to find.
Are there 3 holes in the rails of your 2000 MY Go board?
If so, you could possibly make up your own set from some small...

Wooly,
You will need to get some round stock (or some 6mm fin screws you don't care about)
and push them down through the 2 holes in the top of the board that the fins screws
go into.
Then take...
