Default Fin and sail size for Futura 141

Hello,

I want to buy a Futuras 141 as my biggest board (I also have a rocket 115 and a synvro 94). I am 95 kg and had a Isonic 137 but this board was to demanding for me, especially when riding in chop, so I think the Futura will give me nearly the same performancew with more fun and better jibing.

I want to use a Point-7 AC-K (Three cam sail) in 9,4 aand 7,8 on the futura. When the wind picks up I will go with the rocket with 6,7 hellcat.

Which fin size would work best for this sail sizes.
I would have said, 50cm (the stock fin) is fine for the 9,4 and mayby for the 7,8 a 46 cm?
What do You think?

Best regards

Alex

Hi,

ont thing to add: I could get a used "Drake ready to race - slalom 8" fin at a resonable price.
Would this fit for the 7,8 sail or would it be to small?

Best regards

Hi,

one thing to add: I could get a used "Drake ready to race - slalom 8" fin with 42 cm at a reasonable price.
Would this fit for the 7,8 sail or would it be to small?

Best regards

Personally I think it would be a bit on the small side, a 44 or 46 would be more the size you should be looking at, you could even use a 48 if all that you can get. If you do go the Drake route look more towards the Venom range.

I still have 2 select S1 fins in 51 and 47 cm from my isonic. But they are deep tuttle box. On the isonic i liked this fins very much. If the size would fit to the futura with 9,4 and 7.8 sail I could shorten them so they fit into the tuttle box of the futura. Otherwise i will sell them an buy new fins for the futura.

Does the Futura not have a deep Tuttle box? If not you could get the fins re-headed?

No the Futura has normal tuttle box. I would re-head my select fins if I am sure, that the size is perfekt for my sails.

Hi Alex

I would have thought you could go a fair bit smaller actually. Somewhere between 36 and 40 works well for me with a 7.8.

Hi Alex

At you weight who is exactly mine I would recommend you the 2015 Futura 144 who have a lot from iSonic performances and way more easy than iSonic but also compare to the 2014 Futura particularly in control.
Very easy to jibe and this come from the shape but also from the fin, the Drake Venom is really the perfect one to get the best from this board.
So Venom 46 with your 7.8 and 42 for your 6.7.
Hope this help

All the best

Thams a lot for Your replies.

I already bought the 2014 Futura 141.
So I will try the stock 50 cm fin for the 9,4. For the 7,8 You recommend the 46 drake venom. I will try to rehead my select S1 XL slam fin in 47 cm so it fits to tuttle box and try this one with the 7,8.
The 6,7 sail I will normally use with my Tabou rocket 115, but good to hear that I can also use it with the Futura 141 8with a smaller fin).

Best regards

Alex
