Default Need advice from the team on fin for futura 133

Hi there,

I have the standard fin for the futura 133 (drake 48 cm). But shorlty there will be lots of plants in the water so need a smaller curled fin. Otherwise all the plants stick to the fin (if you know what i mean...) What fin type and size do you recommend. My weight is 80 kg and I am normally surfing on flat water with sails ranging from 6.7-8.0

thanks for the tips.

Regards,
Alwin

Hi Alwin,

You will probably need a weed fin typically raked at about 45',
which translates in size (with 45' rake) to around 36cm for 8m and 32cm for 6.7m.

Brand of weedfins depends on what is available at your location (varies..)
Some known good brands in weedfins include Tangent Reaper and Lessacher.

The handling/control/speed of these heavily raked fins is not so bad
an overall compromise as you might expect

Cheers ~ Ian
