Default Which Fin on SB Carve 133 with V8 8.5

Hi, I have a question regarding a 2007 model Carve 133 with a NP V8 8.5 rigg:
In overpowered conditions the standard 46cm Fin seems not optimal. Which
fin type and fin size would you recommend. My weight is 90kg and I like to focus on speed and upwind performance. By the way the standard fin does work great with a V6 7.0.
Thanks in advance.

You may be best calling a fin dealer - they tend to give great advice on the phone or e-mail. For example. Last year I picked up a tectonics fin for a similar sized freeride board - totally transformed the board over the stock fin. I thought it was pricy but it was worthwhile as I was thinking of replacing the board.

Thanks Mike. I have contacted Select Fins and got some good advice on fin choise. (http://www.select-hydrofoils.com/en/). I recommend these fins over drake fins anytime.
