How big is Big enough

I am about to make a rear fin for a Bic Veloce 328, unless some one has one, but am wondering just how big to make it. first try will be to copy the 12" fin for the Fanatic Ultra Cat.

All and any thoughts will be greatly appreciated.

Re: How big is Big enough

Making a fin seems like one of the hardest things to make for a windsurf board. If you have a trim box (which was a common fin for the older Bic's) any of these would probably be better (and a cheaper) than making one yourself.

Thanks for finding them so quick, my web searches only came up with three on Ebay at over $150 each.

You are right, however as I do not do FB is there a alternate method of contact?

A quick Duck Duck search showed that board came with a 13.28” fin. The manufactures usually supply a fin that works best with sails in the middle of the boards recommended sail range.
Maybe a inch shorter if you’re mainly using smaller sails or a inch longer if you’re only using bigger sails.

I have a 14.5” True Ames weed fin that that I bought from a guy here locally a few years ago. Used it once and have since retired the board I bought it for. I paid $45 but will sell it for $35 if you are interested.
