Default kombat 105 fin for onshore wave riding

Hiya Guys

bought a Kombat 105 wood last year and just love it for blasting around. however, I am told a smaller fin than its 30cm drake cross would fit better for wave use. I am 85 kg, mainly sail onshore and side-shore conditions, most often in medium winds. Am approaching wave and this is, at the moment, my only board for such use. Sails Severne S1 5.9, Ezzy Panther 5.2, Ezzy SE 4.7

what fin should I buy, if any, as an alternative? do you agree with a Drake natural wave 26 cm?

my 2 cents

the 30cm fin would cover the 5.9 for the 4.7 you need something smaller, 26cm being correct.

maybe like this:

thank you Carvesalot, you tips sounds very knowledgeable. I'll get that size, though I'm thinking about a natural drake fin which I can buy in Britain at a relatively cheap price

cheers
