SPY Development 024

If you are 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, nice rides side shore, this is the sail you are looking for:

  • We develop the Spy to be your strong wind slalom sail?
  • We develop the Spy to be your free wave sail?
  • We develop the Spy to be your Bump and Jump sail?
  • We develop the Spy to be the wave sail to let you hit hard and with control and lip of any wave around the world?
  • We develop the Spy to be your strong wind slalom sail?

The question is YES to all five questions!

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 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. 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!

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 the 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 always.

5-batten construction, with important profile along the lower three battens to satisfy the stability and power in all conditions. 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 lightweight sailor.

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.

100% assembled with X-ply laminates, mixing the base with the five 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 reflex.
