The sail which reached PWA podium in its first generation and first event. Lift, lightweight, LOTS OF POP, short boom, high foot, and straight profiled battens! These were the requests from our freestylers. To meet the requirements of the team, a large Dacron panel was introduced into a four-batten construction to create earlier planing and more pop in the sail. The straight profile in the top of the sail combined with a tight leech allows for super easy ducking of the sail and back winded tricks. No gimmicks have been invented or stitched onto the sail. The team requested the most functional freestyle sail possible with a slashed down weight to have no restraints for pulling the fastest and highest moves.
Power in the front of the sail was the main concept, to have more power in light winds. Low clew and straight foot of the sail to allow for better ducking and shorter boom length to allow for extra power. The Dacron luff panel is wide and covers a long area along the mast: centred perfectly to contrast the push and weight of the rider to get the max stability and higher pop. The sail is a powerful toy, with fast acceleration to allow moves in shorter spaces, power in lighter winds and higher stability in stronger winds. The construction is light, but extensively tested on the water to make sure that it would still take the biggest crashes. Because the sail is so light, it gave us the chance to use Xply monofilm, (except for the window zone), allowing you to take the Slash into waves too, or to challenge harder crashes.
