Considering bigger fins on my mako due to sliding out in 25+ winds jamming hard turns.
I currently use the H156mms in TT mode. Can anyone comment on any improvements the 85mm or even the 100 might yield? Thanks
There was a kiteforum thread where larger fins on Mako we discussed extensively. I cannot recount what I said exactly then, but my conclusion was that the best compromise for my most used board (Mako Wide 150) were fins from my Spleen Zone, re-positioned nearer the center of the board by 1.5 or 2 inches. The result is a completely different board: no more sliding (spinout) in hard turns or when landing, more grip, better upwind, and just as easy flipping (which is not the case with large area fins with low aspect ratio) , and most importantly, a more wave-board like feeling on the lip.
I'll try to post a pic if you insist...
