Rudder

Rudder fell off my hurricane and I will be molding a new rudder on the rod (that attaches to the hull) and am looking for design ideas.
haven't yet decided if I will make the rudder a spare for flat -small, less drag, or bigger for better downwind maneuverability. I guess it depends on how feasible the design.
My original idea was to shape a mold based off of the current outrigger zone rudder and reduce size by 20-30% and use in flat water, if not satisfied with result then I would just increase the size by placing in new larger mold to test for downwind. Thoughts?
Hows this rudder developed by Epic:

That Epic thing looks pretty dope... for (really) flat-water. Can't imagine it doing anything if the swell is 1 ft. or more. Seriously though, I'd use it.
