Yeah I did order mine wider than standard. I was looking for max light wind performance. Two years ago I owned a Hana Crew with 7 fins. I recently tried my friends Hana to see if my memories of the board were still correct. Yep itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s slow, and you can hear the fins making noise.On 2002-08-22 21:11, Anonymous wrote:
Dwight, thanks for the info. Why do you think 4 little fins have much effect on speed? When I am powered, Usually just the back fins are really in the water. The fins are small and are nothing like the monster blades used by some screaming fast windsurfers. I have certainly heard this before from others, but was wondering if someone had some rationale why. I have a mess of fins on my boards and have never tried popping some off. I would assume that you would have to edge more if you have fewer fins. Doesn't this increase drag alot? How about a sharp edge (eg: Slingshot) as opposed to a softer rail. I am interested in the Underground. I have seen you comment on it before. My recollection is that you got it a bit wider thatn is standard. Big difference?
It's up to you and what you're use to riding. One friend of mine loves his 157 WT, but his previuos board was long too, compared to mine. So maybe it's just me.On 2002-08-22 22:20, Anonymous wrote:
I'm a little confused. Unless I'm reading this wrong you started out with a very favorable presentation of the Wavetray 157, but the last message said you thought it was clumsy. What's the scoop. Should I steer clear of the Wavetray 157?
