One fin only. Any more would go against nature. Not really but I've tried 3 fins and the board felt sluggish and 'stuck' in the water.

I could probably guess the brand, but I won't do it publicly.

I have a topic that should take over: How many fins should a windsurfer have? tell me about it and then tell me all about toe-in on the side fins and why or why not windsufers should have it. quad, thruster, single fin, bonzer? discuss


at least 1, maybe as many as 5. Why not toe in on the rears of a quad ? mine have .475

fronts 1.75 + toe depends on which fins you will entertain using, symmetrical or asymmetrical, or how asymmetrical. 1 if 50/50 up to 1.5

why takes too long and gives me a headache.

1 fin works anywhere
2 is a lot of fun and loose
3 ..quite the variation in feel here ..if all are similar to the same size ..or if large rear and small sidebites, option variation is a trailing tri fin, loose like a twin, but firm.
4.4 fins, sail most like a single, more drag, less speed, slo to plane, turns are its forte.. read a wave machine or swell riding magic.

UPWIND a plus on all but the twin
