We recently did a kite racing article in IKSURFMAG which should be of interest to some of you...

There is an error in the Article. Tri-fins did not dominate the World Championships in Texas, quads did. Only the first race in the mens division was won on a tri-fin.

Alex Aguera on fins



Another insight from Damien Leroy

Quads just killed it at the Carribean Champs in PR too. I'm sure that tri's and others will start to come along, but no one has it down yet. I think that one has to beat Damo or Adam to prove it.

In the heavy air it seems as though tri's might be ok, but this is often much more the rider than the board at this point. Up to 20 i'd still stick to quads for now...
