The fin size means nothing... Thinner fins will be faster in theory, so you could change of course. But you won't be able to feel the difference on a TT with small fins. It is the rocker line without release edges, that makes the board slower than other boards. The 140 is shorter, and has less rocke...

I think its the perfect kite for her, because of its upper windrange !

It is one of the easiest high performance kites to hold an edge, because you can sheet out much more than on other kites (on cost of poor low end - but with 45kg thats no problem i guess...)

I have ! The Mystery 140 is an awesome board. Light, good grip, and a perfect trim. The Mystery 150 I tried to use as a light wind board (its quite big - wide all over). No good IMO (as a light wind board that is), because it is too slow. For some reason the bottom concave depth is very different on...

" They promised us light wind surfing ! " This does not apply any more, just like you suggested. BUT - the surfing is 100 times as fun in relatively ligth wind (11-12 knots), because you ride a small board, and jump like crazy. This will first happen in windsurfing from 20 knots and up - and you nee...
