Default RE: too long fin

Hi Crazychemical!
for rough estimation the correct fin lenght is 4 to 8cm shorter than the one foot off tail width to have the correct leverage as Roger mentioned. Thats correct for slalom boards. For the new formulas we are limited to 70cm fins and the one foot board widht is 81cm and more. So we need this season very powerful fins to compensate the lenght differenz to reach a goos lever.
