Smile Serenity weed fin

I'm finally going to order my serenity. I will opt for the sport model due to price.
I am looking for a weed fin recommendation. I will use a 7.5 to 9.0 meter sail most
of the time. I weigh 230 lbs. I would say I am and advanced intermediate.

Hallo! Try a 32 or 36cm Duo Weedfin in 100% carbon. No spin outs. What sail and what board?????????? Look: designlessacher.com
Fins are asymmetrical weedfins for tour and retour. Wolfgang

Hi Don,
I've used the Design Lessacher 32 and 26 in the Serenity quite a bit, as well as using Tangent Dynamics Reaper 36 and 39 cm.
Also the True Ames Shallow Water weed designs work well.
I think what you will find on the Serenity is that you don't need nearly as much fin as the huge wide blade fin supplied with the board.
Also, you may find, as I did, that you don't need sails larger than 7.5-8.5.
You need to consider the additional weight of a larger rig against the performance in very light winds.
Hope this helps
