Default sailing small finned

Hello Roger and anyone else.

When the wind picks up and it gets choppier, I really don't like sailing the hypersonic. My next smallest board is an 80L hand made FSW from a local sailor. The fin on it is something like 22-21 cm and I find it sometimes difficult to get upwind and get up to speed )unless really powered). The fin is fine with a 5.0 and even better with the 4.1, but with my 5.8 it is not the greatest.

How do you deal with having such a small fin for the sail size? How do those freestylers do it?

Thanks a lot,
