Without straps and fins.

What Rista fins do you have? Ordered online or have you been testing some befor?



I tested the black edition (41,5 front/38 back, cant 2,7°) , i got them through another racer (some guy found them to expensive) , the waiting list is too long so i decided quickly.

I have another set from Jayfactory (look at windsurfing fins.co.uk) no cant, they also go very good, little less control, but slightly better upwind.

now give me some wind!

Damn, that ain't good.
What's the serial number and is this a warranty case?

Interesting first post :roll:

Please inform the board's serial number, this way one can understand whether it belongs to the first batches or not (as I understood, the latest batches should have had the problem fixed)

The board is definitely under warranty and North is no Royal..
Drinking water is a malfunction and should be covered by warranty, so contact your dealer and go for it.

Mine arrived today, serial 0076.

Very disappointed with the fin geometry, with the aft finbox clearly tilted in relation to the longitudinal axis of the board. Contacted the importer, let's see how it turns out.

Dude, that looks horrible! My home made board that took less than 3 weekends to complete looks better than that. I would not be happy.

Did you measure from the sides of the board to the fin?
