North LTD 2010

Postby orwell » Tue Feb 01, 2011 4:40 pm

Hello guys,
Is any of you have used the north ltd 2010 ?
Which is the best setup in fins ?
Straight, with angle ?
Shark fins ?
I'm still using this board with same fins that came from series, i want to put bigger fins to go faster.
If any of you could give me a hand it will be very positive.
Thanks !

I am using this board, both with standard fins, bigger race fins, and big anti-seaweed fins.

But I dont understand your question - you want to go "faster" ???

Then you should definitely keep the standard fins, if speed is your major concern, as the bigger the fins the slower the board :thumb:

But upwind, bigger fins will increase the upwind angle and vmg sligthly - but that is a totally different thing than speed.

Thus - course racers choose fins so big that upwind is fine, and so small that downwind speed and control okay.
A balance 8)
And depends on wind strenght and water conditions also.
