I have a lab70 with rista 37/35 fin set. I like this set for all around riding. I am not doing any racing yet just messing around really. But I want to go faster. So far I am having trouble getting above 30kts. Can sometimes hit that mark but usually not.

Would smaller slalom fins help, maybe in the 28-34cm range? Has anybody out there experimented with this?

I ride 42 fronts and i have noticed when i get 35 back fin i go a lot faster downwind and reach.
Probably slalom fins would help. As well as cant
I have 3 sets of highspeed slalom fins brand new Vector fins
They literally rip!
I was going to get a Temavento slalom 60 but then i decided to buy a foil instead
Let me know if you might be intersted

In this video Erica reckons that Johnny and Bernie were using 42cm front fins on their Lab70 race boards for the slalom racing.
