Default Apollo (2008) Fin advice

Hi,

I sail the Apollo 2008 in light wind conditions. It's an awesome board, I love it. The fin that I use it with, is the standard Drake 75cm fin.
My question is : will I benefit from I smaller fin in medium wind conditions (when I don't have my slalom gear with me, because the stronger wind has suprised me)?.
If so, what smaller fin would you then recommend.


Thanking you in advance, cheers,

TJ

Default Apollo fin advice

Hi Remi,

Is it possible for you to give advice on the medium wind fin for the Apollo 2008? A Deboichet fin?

Good sailing!

I think one good choise for you is the DB R20 Fin , Iam getting it in a few days for my SB 162 so I cannot give you real experience advices.
For my board the DB r13 soft RAKE 8 is just a compromise and nothing more so for your board it should be worse.

Ive got a 2007 Apollo its certainly a handful as the wind picks up with the standard 75cm fin. I weigh 75 kilos and normally use Point 7 AC-2 9.7 sail.
I dropped down to a Deb R17 + 6 which gave a lot more control but still a handful when it really blows.
On the lake I sail on Weed is a problem so I invested in an weed fin see :
http://www.designlessacher.com/Website/Uk_Duo_Formula_Weed.html[/url]. I use the 40cm it gives plenty of lift and has a massive wind range so no need to change back to the 75cm.
It really sorts out this board and works well on my SB 160 in fact I find myself using it all the time.

Hi Uneregistered,

When we developped this board we do it with a Deboichet R13 75 Soft and 70 soft rake + 6cm. This 2 fins work great on it but for the 70cm we like it only over 20knots.

Hope this can help

All the best
