Hi AJ,

The best one for light wind until max 15 knots is the R19 soft -- rake + 8cm.

After beter to use a R13 medium or soft rake + 6 or 8cm depend of your weight.

All the best

Hi AJ,

So you are heavy so yes the R13 is good but which rake are they?

For ultimate performances in light wind the R19 wil be better.

All the best

Hi Remi,

So, for a 170lb. guy and windy conditions would you recommend R13 Soft or Medium. And rake +6 or +8? What about the size, is 70cm the only size to get?

cheers!

Hi Jeff,

Personally I am right now at 84 kgs and don't need to use under 70cm.

I am using the R13 medium rake + 8cm with not so much choppy water, but go for the R13 soft rake + 6cm when is really choppy.

All the best

Hi Jairo,

We prefer to change fin profil than reduce the size, so in your case I will go for the R17 Soft 70 rake + 8cm

All the best

Thanks Remi.

Right now I'll can get a fin R16 70 rake + 8cm. Do you think that is a good choice too.

Regards
