Re: North Sails 2022

I see that NorthSails choose slalom race sizes very close to those of the S2Maui Venom sails. Such a competitor making similar choices also means that what S2Maui is doing is sound.

Re: AV-Boards 2022

The AV boards are built by Kinetik in Viet Nam. Same as FMX, FutureFly and previously Mistral. This makes for a HUGE difference as any user of such other brand boards knows very well and can explain. Kinetik is more expensive than Cobra, but some brands prefer it in order to have happy customers and...

Re: FMX Racing 2022

La freestyle wave avec un boitier central us c'est dommage !!! ... Why dommage. It is the technically correct choice. In perfect FM style: no compromises. It will let one use his wave fins on this 96 lts. board. At the cost of not being able to fit his larger freeride fins. But this boards seems to...

Re: Loftsails 2022

Very nice presentation from one of the very very few true sails guru around, who saw it all from the beginning! Only one thing is not clear to me: it says "For the first time, Racingblade is produced entirely free of monofilm materials", but looking at pictures and video it seems to me it'...

Re: S2 Maui 2019

It will be fun!
'18 Venom were already top sails, with an incredible balance between power and control. If the new ones are really more stable, lighter in the hands, more direct and even lighter ... it will be very, very fun!

Am I wrong, or the lowest batten is already broken?
Will the new sails be delivered that way? It would save a lot of time.

Re: S2Maui 2017

A priori le point d'écoute rapide est de nouveau d'actualité à la place de l’œillet, c'est une bonne chose :wink: Yes at last. I really don't like the Chinook pulleys I had to fit on my Venom's. I like the white mast sleeve bottom, a bit less the printed film at the top (I guess it's printed film)....

Re: MauiSails 2017

I really like the TR-2017 in black/white! My favourite colour combo.
It would be interesting to know whether the second clew pulley is intended for "longer than standard" or "shorter than standard" boom set. But I think we will have to wait until the official release to know ...

Re: MS TR6 2010

I have been using Maui Sails TR-'s since TR-6 to TR-XI, with the only exception being the '11 TR-7. I did not get the '7's because I liked my TR-6's so much and wanted to enjoy another season on those. I owned TR-6 in 6.3, 7.0, 7.6, 8.4 and all were extremely nice sails. That said, if you are consid...

Re: [Test] Carbon Art 58/2011

Past Sunday I tested my new '11 SL58. I rigged a Maui Sails TR-6 7.0 and choose a Tectonics Falcon 36. I mostly agree with laurentnc. The board is extremely easy to sail through chop, feels small, is probably better with powerful fins (next time I use it with 7.0, I will test a Talon 36 9.0%). As fo...

Re: [Test] Carbon Art 58/2011

I sailed the SL66 '11 a few times, with 7.0 and 7.6, fin Talon 38 (9.0%) and 40. My impressions are like yours: quick planing, high performances, total control and a jibe that is just incredible. I also agree about "sensations asseptisées", but have to add a thought. A few years ago, a ver...

Re: Les Carbon Art

une CA c'est ... une CA n'est pas - fun - la plus rapide ... I reckon CA's are so smooth, that when on flat water may seem not fun. But the heavier the chop, the more fun they get, compared with the competition. As for speed, it's deceiving: may not feel fast, but actually are. Just need ('10 model...
