Default RE: iSonic 105 Fin Suggestion for lightweight sailor

you know if you are really overpowerd and do not have control. Than the easiest solution is take a smaller fin. Maybe some more leech in your sails.

So you do not have 1 fin @ 1 sail option.

I have now 1 board and use it fom 12-35 knots I can hold it because I can tune my board down with the fins.
I have drake sl pro 28,30,32,34,38,40
The drake fins are not very popular in holland so cheap thats why I use them. I am just waiting for a cheap 36 fin...

I have few examples:

Is105 + 6.3 in 18kn wind vs 25kn wind is drake slalom pro 32 vs 28
Choppy versus flat water with 20kn is 32 vs 30

I can not tell what fin will be the best, it just depends on circumstances, weight, etc. The standard fins do their job good if you want more... than you need more fins to ride your board as high as possible in any circumstance.

If you want the fastest& best fin for SB.. I would go for Deboichet SL2 & Deb upwind.
