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 of its time, but they knew that wing sail is a necessary next step in windsurfing evolution. We see it and feel it every single time when designing new product, or making changes or updates to existing one. Our design platform is based on comparison in efficiency of different aerodynamic profiles. Unlike traditional method of creating sail - putting an idea strait to sewing machine, our design process starts from assigning properties and parameters to the feature product. It seems like an easy part, but it’s not. Creating user friendly product is a holy grail of all industries. For us is to take in account what majority of sailors want and identify our customer is the most important aspect. Everyone wants to go fast, but very few want to do it using true race gear. For our customer, comfort and speed should go hand by hand.
After assigning parameters to the wing, we use 2D CAD to produce first drawings.
