Fin, water conditions, setup, skill, weight, height ....
Too many variables.

15 knots may be the limit for an advanced beginner that weighs 70 kg. An expert weighing 90 kg may be able to handle 30 knots.

Like Coachg said = too many variables.

Vict90 - what is your skill level and how much do you weigh? Do you sail in open water or flat water?

Oh sure,
So, I'm 70 kg, and I'm 1,70m tall. The water is flat, or sometimes choppy. I'm quite good! The fin is the original one, 38 cm Freeride glide.

With time on the board to get comfortable, you should be able to handle at least 20 knots in flat water. You may be able to go over 20, but you will probably need a smaller fin and smaller sail. In 20 knots in open or slightly protected water with 1/2+ meter chop, the ride will be a little crazy with the 6.6.

For you, I think the board is best suited for a 7.2 sail in about 11-14 knots. 6.6 sail in 12-18 knots and a 5.8 sail in 18-22 knots.

I haven't sailed this board, so these are just estimates. Hopefully someone your size with an F111 will jump in and provide a better estimate.
