After earier rain wind arrived as forecast on dropping tide. Tries new Tabou 86l in trifin configuration as Gary recommended for Llan. Centre fin is 18cm with 2 x 9cm thrusters. Lost grip sometimes which I think was as I was overpowered in difficult chop. When sea smoothed at end board gripped fine and during gybes. I was using 4.2m and compared to 76l single fin board bounced more, as expected as 2.5cm wider and felt like it would not sink so easily in lulls. OK speed wise, and probably 1-2 knots slower than single fin but turns easier and sharper and with volume should carry lighter winds easy. Got going easy but there again wind was very strong and too gusty for anything more than 3*. Mid tide seems to be worst for chop in Llan.
