Karo van Tonder (South Africa's rising Star)
The fin is one of the most important aspects of my rig, because it is the board’s pivot point, and plays a major role in the board’s maneuverability. Being a lightweight female racer, I felt a dramatic improvement in my sailing since I started using Robbie’s Zulu fins. Within days I was able to hold down much bigger sails in stronger winds without feeling out of control. This empowered me to give the bigger windsurf men a tough time on the water! I believe that the greatest part of my success on the water is due to complete control over my board and sail in all conditions, because this gives me the confidence to push my limits, even in the scary choppy conditions. Langebaan is my home town, and the chop here can become extremely messy. For the first time I am able to fly over the chop and not having to brace myself for that detrimental spinout! I have been very fortunate to borrow Robbie’s Starboard Isonic 107 and have been blasting across the water with a 38 Zulu fin. I have also been using his fins in my Tabou Manta 100L and Patrik 87L boards. There is a massive improvent in my sailing speed and control on the water with all my boards since using zulu fins. It gives me the peace of mind to focus on my sailing technique and speed without having to contemplate on when the next spinout might happen. My gybes have also improved dramatically and I am able to put a lot more power into my carves. Zulu fins rock!!
