Default Fin size on GO 166


I'm trying to find the right fin for a 2008 GO 166 to use with a Gaastra Remedy 6.9, in choppy conditions, and in wind between 17 - 21 knots. My weight is 95 kg and Iím an Intermediate.

I've tried different fins, lastly a Gsport Freeride 44. This fin should fit the sail and my weight, but it keeps sliding when not driven hard on a plane.

I guess the board is so wide in the tail that I should get a lager fin to replace the R13 56 when the wind picks up. I really want a forgiving fin that can help me progress with the jibes. The NCX 9.0/R13 56 is a bit heavy to throw around for me, but itís a joy to blast around with.

Any suggestions for a good freeride/freerace fin for me?
