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. Ricardo Campello is our perfect testimonial to prove what The SALT PRO can do. It’s not only going to podiums, but it’s about being the most radical out there in any situation and conditions. With this sail we want to make sure that you feel confident in trying anything out! Scoring quality points on the water will make you stand out from the rest.

THE TESTS ON MAGAZINES SAY

An efficient on/off profile designed to be radical on the wave. It’s a versatile wave sail which can be used in all conditions by tightening or loosening the clew. Fast, agile and supremely comfortable to use, the Salt Pro’s soft delivery style makes its spirited rearward rider-focussed power both useable and stable across a far-reaching tuneable range.

IT’S 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! Adjust the back-hand power, and it’s ready to offer 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. It’s fast, it’s agile, it’s up to you to let the next move be or dream, or to make it happen. The Salt is ready to stand out!

ON THE WATER 

The Salt translates to plenty of useable bottom end grunt, the large luff panel expanding to significantly increase the depth of the draft. The delivery is soft and forgiving, and comes through both hands, the centre of effort focussed around the rider. Used in properly powered conditions, this transforms into a power-hungry animal, locked in and dancing over the water as it advances in every gust. It moves smoothly around the rider thanks to the softness in the luff panel, enabling to keep the pedal down in attack mode, even in the most uninviting conditions. With speed comes light handling, which combined with the Salt’s on-off capacity when eased out, makes it a formidable weapon on the wave and in transition.

FOR ZERO19

Batten 3 has been completely re-tuned to increase further the comfort. More profile on the front, straighter exits. This allowing to close further the leach in the batten 2 area, increasing stability and power. Batten 4 has been lowered to allow more freedom to the clew making the sail even more friendly when simply cruising.

COMPETITION RESULTS

The sail that has brought Ricardo Campello back on to the podium on PWA from 2015 to now. The sail that made Ricardo claim his first wave event victory at the PWA in La Torche.

Thanks to 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!

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 light feeling.

BATTENS

Four-batten construction, with some profile along the lower 2 battens to satisfy the drive on the bottom turn.

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 is 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

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 lightweight sailor.
