Help!! (fins)

Postby oliver vlc » Fri Nov 19, 2010 10:08 am

( Course Racing Equipment (a submission from PKA)
To limit the maximum amount of fins to 4 and require them to be production. Maximum 1 set of fins to be used during one event. Minimum production number of fin sets: 50

Result: Rejected (3 approve / 16 reject / 0 defer / 1 abstain)

The motion around the table was that free choice of fins are essential to trim the boards for different wind and water conditions especially taking into account that only 1 board may be registered per event.)



We are a lot of beginners in kiterace.

Can you explain how choice of fins for different wind and water conditions?

Thanks.

big fins will drive up wind better and be definitely a better light wind alternative...shorter fins are easier to control and goes down wind (apparently) better....but dosn't have the same drive...then there is a ton of different angles...etc.
