@ Troll,

Cut down: p.e. 75cm fin cut down to 70 cm - tip of the 75 cm fin, 5 cm is removed.

@ paffi:
I sailed some more sessions: still like the 70 cm virus fin a lot. The 167wide is very good in early planning. Especially when the water is flat the board is really quick and easy to sail in every direction. In very steep high chop and high winds (18+ knots) it becomes a lot more technical / difficult probably because of the carbon / stifness and the wide of the board (although when I look at the pic of Sean... I won't complain about choppy conditions any more ;-) ).

I think that the direction is that in Formula Windsurfing competition you more or less need to boards, depending on conditions. One very wide like the 167w for 7 - 20 knots, and one for choppy, high wind conditions (161 or 167?).

Hi nonopr, I have them in the back holes. For me this is the best setting with the wind / water conditions so far. Be sure to tighten the screws of the chicken straps a lot as they otherwise twist very easily during sailing which makes it harder to put your foot in.

Hi Nonopr,

This is personal set up and depend of racers style.

In light to medium wind I put all of them in the back with a Virus 70 (normal one), and when the wind get over 20 knots, I put all of them in front with the same fin and also move the mast base in front by 1/2cm depend how much wind you get and choppy water.

This board in my opinion don't need very powerfull fin to deliver great performances in light winds. Actually use one fin for all conditions and deliver performances really higher than HWR & LWR.

Try this set up, it might work if you have the same style as me

Hope this help

Hi Remi,

Does the new board 167W comes with the fin?

Thanks for the recommendation NED 136 . I notice this already whe I screw in the straps. I had some extra K9 Anti-twist plugs and solve that problem.
Dont know why they did not include more of those with the board. Small details make a better product.
