I have a Nov 2013 lift
when riding through Swells it has a tendency to track sideways , this I believe is caused by the pressure wave under the surface .
I have heard this from others as well.
To over come this added a small win tip Fin to work as a vertical stabilizer .& it works great .
Also to improve performance used glass putty to file in he hole on the fuselage where the retaining Nuts are .& also in the gapes between the foil & the fuselage .
the workmanship is not real good , but it works well .
Happy foiling . .

the foils still are easily removed as the screw heads are on the other side
the fins came with 2 small post & one screw hole
removed the rear foil , removed one of the positioning posts , positioned the fin so the post was over one of the foil screw holes & then drilled a hole in the fuselage between the 2 mounting screw holes .
Counter sunk the hole a little & counter sunk the foil a little as well .
Attach the fin with the screw & then mounted the rear foil ,
then used some 5 minute 2 part epoxy on the edges of the new fin for additional strength , ,this epoxy is brittle so easy to remove if you want to try a different fin .
I tried 3 different ones & positions before I was happy with this .

turned the fin 180 & it works much better
You mean you turned it opposite from your picture, so it is turned like on a TT ?
Yes, the fin has a round leading edge (at the diagonal so to speak), and usually sharp at the trailing edge - so for the yaw stabilisation to be good and smooth, it has to be turned that way.
Althoug - a "rudder" as it is here, would be even better (more stabilisation less drag) if it was turned exactly like your picture, just with a sharp TE and a round LE (which is the opposite of what TT fins are...)
But it is so small, that it really does not matter - as long as it is not too sharp at the LE (no matter how it is turned), which will work worse
