Matas Blancas Spot Guide – Speed Secrets

Fin Size

Well for the 7.0 it’s best on a 30/32/34cm, depending really on the ability of the sailor. For smaller boards then you could go as low as 26cm, it’s not really a place where you need to bring small fins because the starting area is a little gusty, not bad like Karpathos but enough to consider a couple of cm more. You also need to get upwind in the starting area to get a good run. I’ve been doing my best speeds with the 44 and 54, and I was constantly achieving higher than 42 knots on these boards last time I was testing there on a speed course over 250m.
