Down The Line Wave

It totally depowers on the wave, allowing you to fully focus on your surfing. The new construction and compact design significantly increase sail control in gusty conditions. Pure surf.

KEY FEATURES

  • Forceline panel incorporates both clew and tack radial construction into one laminated panel.
  • Reduced distance between the clew and the cross batten distributes the load very evenly and prevents the draft to move back as well as keeping the sail stable.
  • Shorter luff with a compact outline: Distance between the battens on the leech is reduced and the crossing batten is even closer to the clew improving handling of the sail.
  • Cross batten construction allows all three battens to provide the critical leech support while the bottom batten shaping is kept low and forward below the boom area.
  • Mini flat leech rod battens for optimum support and smooth finish.

DESIGNER'S COMMENT

The new PVC/Dacron lower luff area of the sail works like "suspension" to absorb shock loads present when the sail twists-off in gusts, on chop or when landing jumps. This elastic front section absorbs the shock while at the same time locking the profile distribution to the front. The result is a much softer, more forgiving sail that is incredibly stable (even when compared to 4-batten sails) and that depowers completely on the wave. In order to ensure good power in light wind and early planing we increased batten shaping on the front part of the cross batten, but kept back shape very flat to not compromise control.
