Default RE: How to avoid "spin outs"?

What size board (& type), sail, fin are you using? What are the wind conditions? How much do you weigh?

Last weekend, I went sailing with a 9.8 and a 56 cm fin. I thought I was using a 66cm fin. ooops. My mistake, but the point is, if you don't have the right combination you might have these sorts of problems.

Technique is important too, of course, but if we can rule out equipment matching as an issue first that would be good.
