Smile need some help with this hairline cracks + fin sizes for Futura 111

Hello,

I'm pretty new here. And I picked windsurfing again since, well too long I guess. Anyway I bought myself the Futura 111 [ this years model] .
And I have so many questions to ask.
First [see pic] I noticed some hairline cracks underneath the sticker at the tail of the board. There are no dents or it does not feel soft underneath or around the fractures so nothing has hit this part.. just these 2 hairline cracks that become a little smaller if i push them together. What could this be? is this the sticker that is broken? I know these are little things .. but she is may baby now .. and I just want . well I was a litlle worried ..does anyone see this before?

I also made a little dent at the back just next to the anti-slip it's a small dent but the paint did crack a little .. a little bit of epoxy filler would easily take care of that with some white enamel or epoxy paint to finish off I think .. or does anyone have a better suggestion.
I guess my mistake was to think like I used to that I should be able to rest my boom on the tail part of the board while doing a waterstart so that the board helps to keep the dial afloat, meaning I put my boom very [too] low and somehow damaged the board a little. .....

I would also like to know what kind of fins you guys are sailing under the futura 111. I liked the stock the 40 cm venom C3 but bought myself an additional MC RC2 [44cm] for when there little wind and a 36 cm SL [MFC -fin] to use with my 5m arrow sail .. although I experience so many spin out's with it .. that I need to get a smaller fin with it.

My weight is 71 kg 1.75 m and I sail the 2010 gaastra vapor 6.7 and 7.6 + a 5.2m arrow trixx sail and an ancient [15 years] gaastra slalom Pro 6.2 m. SInce my girlfriend is learning to windsurf I surf now in 12 to 20 knot wind mostly flat/choppy water with small waves

thanks for all the input ..I think it's quite a fast board and I am very happy with it


What kind of fins to your guys /girls use with what kind of sail/wind .. what is the biggest fin and what the smallest you put underneath it?
