I once was told that the kids in Bonaire learn freestyle sailing without a fin.

But they do not carry on sailing without a fin after that.

The fin setup:
Look for a swept back 11-12 cm fin and put it as far back as possible in the front boxes and you'll notice something interesting. Perhaps with a super small trailer in the center.

Here is the Machado quad set I recently converted. I did not try it yet though.

Will give it a go! Not sure about the trailer idea though; there’s only four boxes on this board.

It’s also quite a different shape from the Torrent.

Send me a 60/69l proto to try :P :D

Was waiting for that Bill! You’ll have to provide some fronts though, I don’t have any Slot Box fronts at the moment! :D
