Talking Fin for a Futura 111

I have a Futura 111 and have been sailing it with a Choco Fireblade 40 (it's what I was given with the board). This is great, particularly in marginal conditions and for getting upwind, but I am only 52kg and find that there is too much lift, particularly when it's windy. Obviously because of my weight, I rarely use a sail bigger than a 6m, and am also learning to carve gybe. Would I be better off in windy conditions/ practising carve gybes with a smaller and slightly more curved fin?

Should I go for the Drake Freeslalom Swift (standard recommended fin for the Future) in say a 32 as my high wind/ practise carving fin? Any other suggestions as to fin length/manufacturer?

Thanks in advance!
