Default f161 and fins

REMI

I read your fin suggestion (dedoichet custom) for the F161 is
< 15 knots R 19 S rake +8
&
>15 knots R13 M rake +8

What happens if I use
for light winds
<15 Knots R13 M rake +10
and for strong
Winds > 15 knots R13 H rake + 5??

Best regards

Hi Bubi,

This with wide board you need a fin a have a good flex (soft) in light wind to get the lift. Stiffer don not give you this important effect to drive over the water and accelerate.

R13m rake +10cm under 15 knots will not work really good, the board will never get the lift and will push water.

R13 H rake +5cm, you will loose in angle with that one.

So I recomand you the R19 soft -- rake+8cm under 15 knots and the 13 medium rake + 8 or + 6cm over 15 knots.

All the best

Default RE: f161 and fins

dear remi

today was the first day i tested the f 161
you have right about the soft fins... the first day was wind from 10 to 16 knots and i used the standard fin r 19 soft.

i found that this board has increadible speed when you are sailing downwind .

any comments from you with a fin R 13 deboichet custom soft rake 6??
i know the R19 is the best but who do you find this solution??

best regards

bubi


p.s the f161 its a great board...

Hi Bubi,

The R13 soft rake + 6cm still a good fin, but need more power in the tip to get the lift more quickly. This fin was an amaising one on the F 159, but now with the F161 who is a lot more wide in the tail and the size limite at 70 cm, we was oblige to develope a new fin for the F 161.

The R17 soft rake + 8cm was a good base, good aceleration, but not enough power, so I develope in colaboration with Jean-Jacques something between the R13 and the R17 and the R19 born. The R19 is a R13 75cm cut at 70 cm and reshape the last 30 cm to have the perfect curve and flex.

All the best

Will R13 soft FR6 also work for heavier sailors on the F159?
And for the SF 160 as well?

Hi Guest,

Yes this fins work on this 2 boards, work beter particulary on the F 160 with rake + 8cm if you are heavy.

All the best
