About the sail
The Salt is the Point-7 all-out performance orientated four batten wave sail. Comprising high skin tension and a tight leech, Point-7 has created a very manoeuvre and reactive oriented ride maintaining a slightly flat batten profile. The Salt is fast riding on the waves, quick to respond in the new school wave sailing and ultra-light in your hands.
The SALT has been part of a continuous evolution since first introduced. Each size is tested separately according to the designated wind intensity for which the sail designed. A pure new school wave sail. The individual changes made on each size have been made very specific 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. This last generation has implemented the Black Team requests. Development was focused on getting more speed with a lighter feel whilst giving more control to the rider for that extra comfort. A great wave sail as Ricardo has shown from its potential illustrated best with his photos from Ho’okipa, Maui.
Increased S/shaping in the battens gives extra speed to jump higher so he can score more points. This new version further features a smaller and tighter sail head resulting in the sail being lighter and faster in manoeuvres, thus improving handling.
ABOUT THE SAIL
It’s my sail, but with some extra details to make it more friendly due to the more options it gives. Vario Top, clew positioning. The extra reinforcements will give you a longer life to the sail, but you can exactly do what you see I do in my photos and video’s, but that’s on you now!
