hey all.. im doing weymouth speed week in a month and am seeng if anyone has any tips for getting max speed, for example some questions i have are

which size kite will be fastest? if i had to choose between working a 6 or being lit on my 10 which would be best?

i’ll be riding my mako wide, which should do the trick, but my questions are:

is a wide or short stance preferable? the runs only in one direction so would i benefit from an offset stance to the front or back maybe?

should i leave the standard fins fins on or change them over to the shallower, longer ones from my other board? or are bigger fins preferable?

also any general riding tips?
hit me!
