Question tricky freestyle question

Hi Starboard Team!

I just ordered a 2009 Flare 106 in Wood Carbon and i don't know which fin i should get myself to Freestyle.
My homespot is a lake and a pretty gusty place where you sometimes have to wait 15 minutes for a gust to make you move.
I'm using Severne S1 4,2 - 5,6 mē, my weight is 75 Kilos (165 lb).
Would be sweet to know which fin size fits me best as a adition to the stock 26cm.

cheers

Max

Default freestyle fin

Hi Max,

If you're into all the slidy freestyle tricks I highly recommend a smaller freestyle fin than the 26cm.

I generally use a 16cm or 17cm on my WoodCarbon 98 with sail sizes from 5.4 down. For the 106 I would recommend trying something around 18cm and see how you like that.
