iSonic 111 + 43cm Sonntag Fins Testday

10-13kn, sunny, onshore, Amstelmeer

Today it was a perfect day for testing longer SL-S 43cm fins, my first session in a boardshort. Nice warm, couldn't imagen a few days ago I needed my winter wetsuit...

For lowwind with the iSonic 111+ Reflex 7.0 the SL-S 43cm was a good size. I tested 2 version:
  • stiffer 43cm 13 degrees rake
  • softer 43cm 11 degrees rake
The softer one gave me a bit better "speed" feeling, lower drag. The stiffer one could handle more pressure, which is nice for lowwind (upwind). In the "best gust" the stiffer one did 50km/h run.

On the Afsluitdijk trip I used the SL-S 40cm 12 degrees rake, this fin rocks and allows choppy conditions. For lowwind however the 43cm gives a much easier ride. The iSonic can be trimmed well with these different fins, I am happy with the results.

Next goal: SL-P + iSonic 111
