Rista
J-Factory
Vector
Tectonics

Select S12 Slam are supposed to be the fins RRD have developed the K-Race with - would also be interested to know which (if any) windsurf slalom fins work properly on raceboards?

What are the approximate prices? The only prices I've seen are on the Rista website.

Yea they have sponsored kite racing for a while now but haven't put out a race fin yet. Keep waiting for that announcement.

I like the description "tweaking" for that round up and out you get when your fins over power. It may not be fast but it is fun. :)

If you want a cheaper set than the custom options, North have fins from the 2011 season left in sizes 38/40/42. They retail about £120gbp per fin... Apparently very similar to Tectonics Talons.

I'm going to try a set on my Venturi (70) in 42cm front 38cm back to give it more lift & get it unstuck sooner. Hopefully having a bit less rake than the stock fins will also keep the nose down a bit.
