or grow in the water. A Weedfin rake 45° is 32cm vertical deep,but 45cm long
(diagonal.) When you need for 130l and 8m² a fin with 40cm, is the 32cm Weedfin
not so deep. Good for shallow water . Weedfins have a easy handling downwind.
Please look: Wolfgang
I have a question to wolfgang
I had a 32cm Lessacher Chamäleon in may hand for my SB go 155 (Drake 52cm) 6.5-8.0 sail but i think maybe 32cm is to short for 8.0 is 36-40cm right size for my kit?

Are Chamäleon the right weedfin for my board?
