My prediction (After only sailing it in lighter winds) is that it will take really well to being seriously pinned down by sail (over) power.
Hi again Ola. I have now sailed abit more with 13 cm and also with the 16 cm front fins. The 13 cm works a bit better in 4.7m2 weather, but with 5,3m2 I actually prefer the 16 cm. I wouldnt say there was a very big improvement in how well the board turns when using the 13 cm finns...
I looked at the Evo 71 measurements, and I still think its sound quite whide, especially in the tail kompared to the Kode fex. Do you have the excact specs for the quad 69? I really have problems deciding what wave board I should pick for 3.7-4.2 weather...
