DESIGNED FOR

Everyone who want to have fun! Fun, Freedom, Friendliness and now even Foil! There are many freeride sails on the market, but Point-7 has one pure freeride sail, and its duty is simply to let its riders have FUN. It’s not built to be the beginner freeride sail, but a real quality-built tutor, for those with aspirations for a blasting style without forging down a dedicated path too soon.

THE TESTS ON MAGAZINES SAY

With looks that can deceive, the AC-F uses its form in the best way possible and exhibits plenty of blasting performance. Bold obvious power delivery, with plenty of natural range, the AC-F possesses Point-7s insatiable urge for speed and blasting without it being an overbearing attribute.

IT’S CHARACTER

The AC-F features a super light construction, early planing, easy handling and demands very little from its user to work optimally. Speed, maneuverability, power, easy. A mix of all the AC lines, with a lot fun inside. It’s called freeride, but the battens are displaced with three kinds of different tube diameters, the graphics are stepping up to show off luxury. The slightly longer boom allows the AC-F to give more push than expected to even the larger volume boards. You can take the three smaller sizes bump and jumping in the waves, and the bigger 2 sizes on free race boards, with the 6-batten setup to amaze yourself with the speed in real light conditions. With three tubed battens incorporated, x-ply in the alternating batten pockets to mitigate stretch, and no fewer finishing details than you see on any other Point-7 sail, the AC-F is a well-considered sail, with plenty of durability built-in to withstand the inevitable abuse and wipeouts an intermediate experiences whilst progressing.

ON THE WATER

We call it freeride; others would call it something more. The acceleration, the maneuverability of the small sizes, the stability when overpowered is a great blend between a wave and slalom sail. In the hands it will be effortless and fun. The 6.9 and 7.5 are not made for being the freeride sail for maneuvers, but the easiest and fastest freeride sail on the market.  

RESULTS

The most versatile sail for everyone.

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.

DEVELOPMENT TARGET

The AC-F sits in the Point-7 range as their freeride sail, designed specifically for fun and user-friendliness. Whilst its stable-mate, the AC-X, is focused on providing race-like performance in no-cam form, it is easy to make the distinction that the AC-F is targeted towards “light wind qualities over high wind performance.”

RIGGING

The AC-F is straightforward to rig, requiring a reasonable amount of force to counter its moderate luff curve and apply the downhaul required, guided by the visual aid in the top panel. It can rig both rdm and sdm mast, but from 6.5 up the use of the sdm will give a better performance. Playing with the outhaul will boost up power or increase control. Tighten the bottom and top batten, but just remove wrinkles on the other battens, overtightening them.

CHIEF DEVELOPMENT COMMENT

It’s an exclusive and luxury freeride sail, not only developed by our pro riders, but also by gathering information directly from our friends who we have around us every day on the beach. Precious feedback for great enjoyment.

AC-F

AC-F

It sets flat at rest, with an important profile evident in the front of the main batten below the boom. The battens are free from any rotation around the mast.
The increase of profile in the front and lower part of the sail increases the drive for earlier planning and acceleration in lighter winds. The drive is fundamental for carving
the board better in the jibes. A deep front profile allows stability in stronger wind, therefore giving comfort and control. The flat profile on top of the sail releases light
weight in the hands and on the board for a pleasant light feeling over the water.

Winglet effect for extra power and stability. In the 3 smaller sizes the outline fits a wave sail outline, but with a lower base to make it easier to close the gap. The boom being a little longer to push better on bigger volume boards, and to find an enjoyable stability when blasting. The 2 bigger sizes, 6.9 and 7.5, therefore have a typical slalom outline for a full slalom stance. A shorter boom with the cross batten to allow the use of short booms in a larger size

Due to its s-shape leach opening, the sail will automatically self-adjust its power. Pull in with the backhand and the sail delivers the power effortlessly to the board. 5.4, 5.9, 6.4: With its large increments, it is not surprising that the AC-F provides a positive useable feedback through the backhand as a gust hits. It relies on the leverage delivered by the boom’s length. 6.9 and 7.5 are the sails designed to plane in extreme light wind. Due to the foil profile and the 6-batten construction it planes very early, and due to its foil leach opening the sail keeps accelerating without feeling any pressure. Pull in with the backhand and the sail delivers the power effortlessly to the board, accelerating smoothly and settling into a secure upright stance. Comfortable and always balanced in the hands, as a gust hits and pressure builds the AC-F simply seems to transform it into more speed. It feels slippery and exciting through the air, particularly off the wind. In transition, its lightweight and predictable power delivery makes it easy to manage. As the wind enters the sail it forms a deep and fast front profile along the mast to allow stability. The wind swiftly moves to give power exactly where the stance of our body is comfortably centered on the board, and releases quickly and smoothly through the back of the sail to allow gentle back hand pressure for pushing on the fin.

The longer boom pushes better on bigger volume boards for enjoyable stability. One eyelet position to make things simple. The smaller sizes do not have a cut out, but simple clew as on the wave sail. This gives the sail a bump and jump feeling, allowing you to try some enjoyable moves over waves and chop. A cut out with cross batten is present on the 2 larger sizes, introducing the fast S-shaping release as the wind and speed increases through the foil. This results in giving us the chance to increase our water performance without having to exert un-necessary power and energy. The shape of the cut out comfortably welcomes the back end of the boom.

Balanced in the hands, as a gust hits and pressure builds in, everything transforms into more speed. Slippery and exciting through the air. Lightweight and predictable power delivery makes it easy

5mil Anti UV- X-ply base panel for protection from accidents.

5mil central transparent monofilm visibility window.

X-ply alternate batten pockets for lighter weight and reflex. 5 tubular battens in the smaller 3 sizes, and 6 tubular battens in the 2 bigger sizes. Following the pure slalom foil profile, allowing even a freeride sail to have the extra performance and stability when the wind picks up. Something that not every freeride sail has the luxury to have. Each batten is assembled for easy replacements.

Dacron Luff panel for extra power and comfort

4mil Anti UV X-ply laminate for high reactivity. All our Ply, X-ply and Scrims monofilm are produced in the Unites States.
