Depends on board's size, YOUR size, your sail used, whether you're good at unweighting the back foot to get onto a plane, or are just a back foot stomper.
Basically anything from 8" up to 60 cm's.

Have you checked out the baord/sail/fin size calculator on James' blog?

If 60 cm is knee high for this fellow that makes him about 8 feet tall. Just sayin'. Smile

Just saying here, but I'm 5.9, and leg measures 58 cm from floor to the top of the patella. Best get out that tape measure again, Mike.

Back on topic. Lots of online fin charts don't really offer a definitive answer do they? Now, if they included such factors as fin type, fin material, water surface (ie,chop), tide, current, body weight, sailing size and style, width of board, strap position, and most importantly, sailor skill level, wouldn't they'd be more valuable?

It looks like this board size range is 100 --136 Liters

If this is a serious inquiry to make a reasonable answer more information is needed.

Board size, sail size, rider weight, are the minimum
