Default +30 knots with Go 155

I made a bet with a friend about that. I believe with my Severne NCX 9.0 and a suitable fin it could be possible if I find flat water somewhere when it blows 15-20 knots.
The bet was a 2 sec peak not 5 x 10 sec average.
What fin do you recommend?
I'm 95 kg.

Not sure about the fin, but I think your challenge might just be doable if you have really ideal conditions.

I peak at 25knts with a 7.2m tribord sail (2 cams) and an old Bic Freeride 130l, 66cm wide, in less than ideal conditions, but still relatively flatwater.

What's your best speed so far?

Good luck!

SHould be possible, I remember my brother doing something like 27kn on the starboard start (2001), we still have this board at home and it is even a bit wider than 1.00m.

The easy way would be take a sail around 7.0 and a fin around 45cm with straight leading edge (no weedfin). With a 9.0 it is possible, but harder, because the fin needs to be better quality (higher pressure= more drag). Most good fins does cost a bit more than a few beers I believe the standard 52cm fin is a bit big for 30kn, would be a real achievement to do 30kn with that one!!!. The weedfin might be better above 25kn (only downwind and flat water)

Good luck!
