Default RE: Bigger fin for the Is 133?

Mezza30,

What's your weight ?

Rémi (85-90 kg) is using a Deboichet SL2 52 cm fin with iSonic 133 and Code Red 10.0 sail for slalom racing in very light wind. A SL2 48 cm fin is used most of the remaining time :

Rémi said on the french forum he's not used anything larger than 52 cm fin because increasing fin's drag starts to hinder the top speed/glide of the board (http://www.star-board.com/forum/viewthread.php?forum_id=12&thread_id=22797).

I've tested iSonic 133 with a 10.6 sail and a 54 cm fin in very light wind (7-9 knots with my 65 kg). The stock 48 cm fin is too small in such low wind for me but is absolutely fine once well to over-powered (9-12 knots for me) with such a big sail.

Cheers !
