I just picked up the board at a swap and I have a 22 cm fin. I have not had a chance to sail it yet, but I was hoping someone may have some experience with it. I plan to use it as a high wind bump and jump board (4.7 to 4.2 mainly). I want to see if I can use it on a 5.4 sail also. The question is what size fin should I get to use with my 5.4?

Any advice would be great

Check the automatic fin-size calculator:

http://www.vims.edu/general/sailpaddle/SailCalculator.xls

Click the "fin-size" tab and enter your weight and sail size.

It recommends a 25 cm wave fin for a 5.4.

The recommendations are based on information I got from the True Ames fins website.

Good luck.
