shorter fin = easier to turn in non planing winds. My upwind 360's and heli tacks improved when I got a really small fin. Easier to push with backfoot and get the board rotating into the wind and...

Finally got a hold of an old powerbox fin and cut it down. It is now 18 cm and works great I guess (don't have experience with such short fins). However, the thickness (cord length?) is rather...
