the 40 cm fin is for my 6.0 and 7.0 sails and works fine
my 47 cm weed fin is for my 8.5
the issue is the water levels are low this year
so, tried the 40 cm slalom fin with the 8.5

definitely doing the "quick tack" where you push the nose through the eye of the wind with your front foot

this should not be fin loading, non ?

later with the 47 cm fin , sail tightened in bigger winds = no issues

was just trying to make the best out of light winds with low water levels
could always go in deeper water , but winds were on-shore that day - it's in a bay

i use quick tacks cuz i can do em in any winds :-)
can do light wind jibes, but come from long boarding - so, still learnin :-)

windsurfers are avoiding that bay now - fellow busted his fin 2 weeks ago
that day it was 10 kiters and I in the bay - no other w/s ers !!!
