Our approach to speed is nothing unique, smaller gear and more power equals more speed.

If our original Storm line is primary oriented for an average sailor who demands reliable and stable run, our Speed line is all about how far we can push our limits to achieve maximu...

Just to say that sail with thick profile is something absolutely new is simply not true. In the past sailmakers of some leading brands and independent sail developers invested considerable time and effort to implement this idea. Like many inventors they were just ahead...

Low AOA for windsurfing sail has been always challenging because this is where cambered, classical sail gives up. Great example of this is Foiling, where friction with water is greatly reduced and operating sail with high AOA is impossible. This is why foilers are usin...

Even canard wing aircrafts, which resistant to stall, advised AOA during landing , do not exceed more than 15 degrees. Generally low AOA means better efficiency and less drag. Just real life example: when sailing big cambered sails during low wind conditions, it is ver...

30 degrees AOA is probably most common configuration when sailing square cross wind. Using example from previous post: 25kt board speed, true wind 25kt at 90 degrees and apparent wind 35kt at 45 degrees. To achieve 30 AOA you need to position your sail at 15 degrees re...

Hi load in windsurfing is not unusual. Just an example: if sailing 90 degrees, true wind - 25kt, with board speed 25kt, apparent wind will be at 45 degrees.  In order to achieve AOA 40, relative angle of the sail to the board needs to be 5 degree.  This is a real life...

I have to say that Lüderitz-Speed challenge organizers put last year’s (2017) event in much better light. Channel is wider, safer and media coverage was much better.  I choose Lüderitz for this blog because this is where sailing is done with super high loads under crit...

These airfoils have been in use for quite a while. Besides America's cup catamarans, there is a number of windsurfing sail designers who invested considerable amount of time in these profiles. Let's take a look at CFD image and see what is going on around these profile...

These series of blog posts will contribute to understanding how traditional profile works and what gives thick profile superiority.  In our CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) simulation study we compare two identical outer profiles, with one difference, one is thick an...
