Stiffness - SOFT = more power and light winds.
HARD = stronger winds and more control.
Rake angle - 0-10 The lower number the more upright the fin.
Lower number give better upwind performance
Higher numbers better higher wind control and speed.
Profiles - Thicker foils = more power in lighter winds but less speed
Thinner foils = less power in light winds but higher speeds
Area - Larger surface area = more power in light winds
Smaller area = less light wind power but higher speeds
Big tips and narrow bases = more control
Skinny tips = high top speeds
