Default RE: Tuning S-Type 126 for Slalom use

I used to use the same board and fin combo with a tush lightning 7.8.

The fin really changes the boards character. With the select fin installed gybing is a lot harder but the extra speed gained is well worth it.

The main problem I found is when the sail is reaching overpowered, the board fin combo becomes very overpowered and rides high loosing control even with my 86kg on top. With a 37 select it was good in this situation but I had to be careful to choose the right fin based on the wind.

You may find that the 37 is a better choice for the 7.3. The S05 is very powerful IMO.
