    While checking out side fin angles, I found some info that on strapped waveboards for huge waves and tow-in surfing, they use very little toe in - sometimes zero.
    Its a bit different on kitesurf boards because often the fins are canted and the board is sailed banked over.

    AFAIK the 2010 *board quads, have no toe, they have been said to
    a. work like charm
    b. have some problems

    you "would" think that developement on any..unfairly (well maybe) using them as a bad example
    production released board would be to the extent that all the ducks are in line, go figure.

    someone is always tryin to make the better mousetrap, CPO, we should start our own company, want to move halfway, probably be Iceland ?

    iceland? seems you like vulcanos..
    pimp: "Iceland Boards - hot and melting!"

    regarding tow-in boards: also read an article some
    time ago and they said that the standard flat inside
    surffoils led to spinouts at this high speeds.
    therefore they settled with a 80/20 profile.

    Imho dual foiled, but asymmetrical fins are
    the happy medium for our speeds in windsurfing.

    my best sidefins to date are the 90/10 profiles
    with a slight concave pocket inside (s-curve)

    as quad rear fins the 70/30 seem to be just right,.
    but still play with the angles for them.

    we have a good forcast of constant 5-6bft for tomorrow,
    some final tests and decisions to be made..

    aloha,
    chris

    Don,t know if i would send a board to Iceland for repair, or finbox replacement but a decent employe of the month will certainly help!

    say hello to Miss Iceland
