Oh forgot to ask. Where is your actual proof that the Jet Flaps and the middle fin do not work? You say they don't, but still have not explained why they don't work.

I am sure the center fin makes it easier to go upwind, but I would think it would make it feel a lot more locked in and less skatey. I took the fins off of my FS Monster Door. It rides great, but I should cover the fin holes as the water sometimes squirts me in the eye.

The lightwind board that I really loved was the Slingshot Glide. It was just the right size and had small fins. It was also lightweight. Unfortunately, mine fell apart after a couple seasons.

Middle Fins on twin tips are crazy upwind and powerful and a little addictive.... for some like myself...
on the Flyrace..... big Fin!
Reminds me of my old Windsurfer One Design with the Pull up dagger-board Fin back a ways.... and flip sailboard down Dagger-boards...



And even in my 145cm show here up in shallow water but I ride fully down as well.
Allow me to ride a smaller kite... and lots of upwind power...
