I have a 2003 AHD Convert 60. I am having trouble getting it tuned
correctly. I am 178cm tall and 65kg. I usually pull it out when winds
average around 18+knots.
Image of board and statistics:
The board doesn't have much volume in the tail and the tail is pretty
narrow. I've been using a 6.6 V8 on it with a 38cm SR6b fin but when I
get moving (and the sail really feels powered up) the tail spins out.
(I think it is doing this when I'm in chop and heading upwind -- the
only thing in the water is the fin? I know there has to be more to it
than that though.) I know this fin is larger than the recommended size
for this board.
I have a 6.0 V8 on order, which I expect will be the largest (most
powerful?) sail I will use on this board in the future. My other fin is
a 32cm freeride fin.
So my I guess I have two questions...
(1) What could I do better with the 6.6 and the Convert 60? Different
fin? Move footstraps around? Mast track?
(2) What would you suggest for a fin to complement the 6.0 and the
I do plan on getting more freeride style sails for this board in the
