The wave sail
Designed for: Hitting the waves at high speed to
pull out new school aerial wave moves, whether you are jumping or going
for aerials. The right mix between drive on the bottom turn, but at the
same time a neutral on/off performance going for the cut back.
The tests on magazines say: An efficient on/off
profile designed to be radical on the wave. Its a versatile wave sail
which can be used in all conditions by tightening or loosening the clew.
One of the fastest, very good for high jumps and a very reactive.
Its character: The Salt is the Point-7 all-out
performance orientated four batten wave sail. Fast riding on the waves,
quick to respond in new school wave sailing moves, and ultra-light in
your hands. A pure new school wave sail! Regulate the back-hand power
it?s ready to offer with precision; according to the wind strength, the
board we use, and what we want to do. We can flatten the profile in
Side-Shore conditions to neutralize the profile of the sail in high
speed surf, which can give more power in the back hand to get more
support in on shore conditions, or when you want quick acceleration to
hit the lips of the waves.
Competition Results: The sail that has brought
Ricardo Campello back on to the podium at the PWA in 2015. The sail that
made Ricardo claim his first wave event victory at the PWA in La
Torche. One of the most spectacular editions ever!
Developed and designed by: The Point-7 Black Team. A
team of professional sailors and designers who have proved themselves
by designing the winning sail for the World Champion in the PWA Slalom
World Tour. Ricardo Campello, with his background of being Freestyle
Champion and now winner of PWA events in the waves, has brought given
feedback on the New SALT PRO, which is nothing more direct than being
one of the newest school wave sails.
Development Target: The SALT has been part of a
continuous evolution since it was first introduced. Each size is tested
separately according to the designated wind intensity for which the sail
is designed for. The individual changes on each size have been made
very specifically to create the perfect sail range. Sail profile,
rotation and twist was tuned on each size to make the sails feel more
free, and lighter in the hands to allow the riders to focus on the real
deal. Development was focused on making the sail more comfortable in
heavier conditions, especially on the smaller sizes; a lighter feel
whilst giving more control to the rider for that extra comfort.
Outline: A balanced boom length and luff
height. A medium cut foot to satisfy the need of the new moves which go
close to freestyle, but at the same time low enough to give power. The
reduced head outline shape allows a fast rotation of the sail, and a
Battens: four-batten construction, with some profile along the lower 2 battens to satisfy the drive on the bottom turn.
Clew and Eyelets: Two light ring eyelet
positions. The lower eyelet to create more opening of the lower leach
to increase control in stronger wind, and the higher eyelet to increase
power and acceleration. We do advise the upper eyelet, unless you are a
Leech, Rotation and profile: Comprising
high skin tension and a tight leech, with lots of S/shaping in the
battens to give extra speed to jump higher. The Salt Pro has a very
reactive and maneuver orientated ride, maintaining a slightly flat
batten profile over the boom. The rotation of the battens are set so
that the battens sit in the middle of the mast, when the correct trim is
applied. This gives the stability in the drive, a quick change of tack
in the moves or when riding.
Body Material: A new Dacron panel was introduced to
create earlier planing and more comfort in tough conditions. Mostly
assembled in the 4mil Anti UV-Black X-ply Laminate ? highly responsive.
X-ply window only where it would not obstruct perfect vision while
hitting the lip when riding waves, centered by 5mil monofilm. Light XXX
Black Laminate to add comfort while hitting ramps at high speeds. The
construction is light, but extensively tested on the water to make sure
that it would still take the biggest crashes. 5mil Anti UV-Black X-ply
base panel for protection from accidents. X-ply batten pockets for
lighter weight and reflex.
Rigging: The Salt Pro is straightforward to rig,
requiring an easy amount of force to counter its luff curve to set the
rotation of the profile in order to obtain a slight lose leach which
falls to the front point of the first top mini batten. Playing with the
outhaul will boost up power or increase control, but do give it good
outhaul tension until you find your perfect performance. Tighten the
bottom and top batten, but just remove wrinkles on the other battens,
without over tightening them. The SALT PRO has been developed
specifically on the C80 rdm masts.
the development done on the Salt already last year I was able to pull
off moves that gave me high scores on the waves. This new version has
been reviewed with many details. From the leach tension to the Dacron
luff panel. A right mix to keep the sail highly reactive, but at the
same time giving the extra comfort! No limits, no boundaries in
development. This is how real development works!
