View Full Version : 101 slalom and course slalom

11th September 2007, 01:46 PM
I use a 101 for slalom and course slalom with a 6.6, 7.2, and a 7.8 . Can you recomend some fins for me to use with it I weigh about 215 lbs and am 5'8". I've used Techtonics tomcat in a 40cm. for the 7.2 but it seem a little small. for course slalom as I get beat upwind by lighter guys on similar fins and narrower boards. Do I need a bigger fin to utilize the wider tail given my weight? I tend to do much better in the downwind part of the course. Thanks for your help!!!

I would think that the 40 would be a big enough fin for the 101. I have never used this board for going upwind, but maybe you could try a Debiochet SL 2 that fin seems to work really good but I normally use it on my 122. Sorry I cant be a bigger help.
