INTRODUCTION

COMPACT FOUR BATTEN WAVE SAIL 

The 2017 Blacktip presents the best overall combination of drive and maneuverability in our wave sail range. Blacktip is the most popular choice for the modern progressive wave riding style when you have multiple factors at play like apparent wind, gusty power bands, competitive crowds, and the need to get planing quickly to get out of trouble. Blacktip features ultra-light and direct handling, while also providing an expanded wind range to allow the rider some flexibility in rigging and tuning. The compact outline offers a lot of front-end drive to generate speed in turns, the 4 batten profile extends the threshold of environments that one can venture out in. Blacktip goes from powered up to neutral instantly, which allows you to generate more torque off the bottom turn with a generous release of power off the top, all the while not compromising whatsoever in placement and position. Blacktip is always a top choice.  It rides so effortless – everything feels easy !

There is a good reason why the Blacktip are the best selling wave sails at Simmer.
The power delivery is amazing and locked forward, where you want it. Yet it is light and forgiving and never pulls you off balance. For jumping the draft stays forward and near the centre of the board where you want it for control. When wave riding you have heaps of power in the bottom turn. At top turns or aerials there is no pull on the back hand, and it won't pull you off balance. Everything stays nicely in control and the sail is soft and forgiving enough not to punish you for imperfections in your moves. The Blacktip will make you feel like a 'better' sailor instantly.
