Buy Freestyle Windsurfing Sails
Do you like to make cool tricks and do you like windsurfing? Then take a look at freestyle windsurfing! This discipline is an extreme form of performing tricks. These tricks can be performed both on the waves and on flat water. A perfect outlet for all your energy!
When you do a lot of tricks during freestyle windsurfing, you make hard hits on the water with your windsurf sail. That's why freestyle windsurfing sails are made extra strong so they don't break the first trick you make. This is done by gluing and sewing the monofilm and sail fabric together. This has created a construction that is almost impossible to destroy. The freestyle windsurfing sails are also a lot smaller than the other sails. This is because the freestyle sails should not catch too much wind, if this happens there is a chance that you will become overpowered and therefore unable to make tricks.
We will explain below what the characteristics of freestyle windsurf sails are.
Characteristics of freestyle sails
Which brands for freestyle windsurfing sails?
There are many different brands of freestyle windsurfing sails available so the selection is huge. Each brand has put its own twist on the sail so that, according to them, it is the best sail you can buy to break personal records or even win races! To choose the right sail for you, you have to read the product descriptions carefully so you know exactly what the properties and characteristics of the sail are.
What material is a windsurfing freestyle sail made of?
Freestyle sails are made of sailcloth and monofilm. Sailcloth is very strong and can therefore withstand the blows on the water well. The monofilm in the sail ensures that you can oversee your surroundings. This allows you to keep an eye on other sailors and to better see gusts of wind coming.
How many battens does a freestyle sail have?
Freestyle windsurfing sails have significantly fewer battens compared to the other disciplines. This is done because many battens are used more in the larger sails. Freestyle sails are a lot smaller and therefore often only need 3 or 4 battens in their sail. These battens provide stability and reinforcement to the sail.
Which mast do I need for a windsurfing freestyle sail?
For freestyle windsurfing you need an RDM mast. This is because the RDM masts are very strong and can handle the hard blows on the water after a trick. The masts have a thicker inner wall that provides extra strength compared to the SDM masts that do not have this. There are many different brands and sizes of RDM masts available at Telstar Surf so there is enough choice for everyone.
