THE ONSHORE BEAST
Designed for: If you?re looking for power, but power
which can plane in the lightest conditions and at the same time
challenge even the toughest situations, this is the sail for you.
Onshore, blasting on bump and jump conditions, this is the sail you are
The tests on magazines say: Well-made and eye
catching, the Point 7 Spy is much more than its billing as a Power Wave
sail would imply. Offering an abundance of power and practicality over a
wide wind range, it is a true all-round contender and comes well
recommended by us. Particularly in onshore conditions and small waves,
to use the power of the sail in the surf and jumping. Really good in
Bump and jump also.
Its character: A powerful masterpiece and a symbol
of control. Using a rich forward positioned profile for great drive
mixed with good skin tension, the SPY is a powerful yet extremely
controllable sail which ensures you stay on top of things in the widest
variety of conditions and range of winds. Undoubtedly the right choice
for many and most. Power is nothing without control!
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. It?s not just our wave sailors who have enjoyed testing this
model, but a good part of the feedback to refine speed and power is
also coming from the Slalom team.
Development Target: Targeting an ideal blend of
measured power and balanced handling. Assuring an efficient energy to
the board, even with a shorter boom length, making it shorter than what
you would normally expect on this sail size. Delivering power
efficiently to the board, the Spy remains balanced in the hands with its
short boom length making it feel smaller than its quoted area. From
light wind wave sail, to high wind straight-line blaster; heavy weight?s
power wave sail to intermediates tutor- the Spy displays the manners
and practicality to cater for the demands of most. The key attribute is
the Spy?s low focused power position, which provides constant usable
power without pulling the rider on to their toes, yet helps to pin the
board down in extreme conditions and retain control at all times.
Outline: Ensuring efficient power transfer
to the board, even with a shorter boom length, whilst remaining balanced
in the hands. This dependable control remains a feature of the Spy
throughout its wind range, allowing it to adapt effortlessly to any
number of roles.
Battens: 5-batten construction, with important profile along the lower 3 battens to satisfy the stability and power in all conditions.
Clew and Eyelets: Two 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: a central
profile with a thin leading edge. A great deal of shape locked low and
forward in the draft, providing plenty of obvious bottom end power and
drive. On its minimum setting, the pronounced profile is complimented
with plenty of movement in its large Dacron luff panel and luff tube,
its structure maintained by the bottom battens pushing forward to sit
flush with the mast?s leading edge. Even on maximum setting the Spy
displays plenty of shape, the bottom batten retaining plenty of rotation
as the leech falls away significantly, to allow speed and fast release.
Body Material: 100% assembled with X-ply laminates,
mixing the base with the 5 mil Anti UV-Black X-ply Laminate, the entire
body with the 4mil Anti UV-Black X-ply Laminate, and 5mil X-ply
transparent window. X-ply batten pockets for lighter weight and improved
Rigging: The Spy 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 loose 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 a good outhaul tension
until you find your perfect performance. Tighten the bottom and top
batten, but just remove wrinkles on the other battens without
overtightening them. If the wind becomes increasingly severe, the Spy
can be retuned with more tension, increasing the twist in the leech
without losing much shape in the draft.
