Hey Marco, I recognize your problem. Maybe you can try but giving the fin more rake or using a smaller fin (with more rake) definitly can help you gain looseness for the iSonic slalomboard. I have...

I don't know the Tushingham Lightning at all. But if I guess the sail has too much lift for you when the wind increases. Mastbase, stance, fin is rather hard to say what is right or wrong on a forum,...

For lightwind slalomracing the 7.5 will be most fun to ride, but the iS111 + 44cm fin should handle 8.5 too to glide a bit earlier.

Just make the decision:

All I know, I enjoyed trying the Select S10 39cm under iS111 (2010) a lot. Translate that to iS117, this would be 41 or even 43cm.

Hi k. lauman,

I repair many fins for myself and a few others. The trailing edge is often not too hard to repair.
