If there is one sail in our line that speaks windsurfing, it is the Switch. That's windsurfing without waves, as the tube/rod battens are not suited to wave crashing, but for everything else people like to do, it's the tops.
Speed blasting, bump-n-jump, power tricks, even a little freestyle, all fit with the specialized design character of this six batten joy to sail. Always light for the size, Switch feels perfect for hours of total fun.
Magazine tests, user feedback, and even some competition results, all verify the easy handling, excellent gust response, acceleration, and top speed. Fast is fun, and speed always derives from similar combinations of tension and twist, regardless of outline or other factors. Carving a hard laydown jibe or pulling out of a tight Spock all depend on this delicate relationship. Switch is now in the fifth round of refinement since it was initially developed for Super-X racing, and every year it continues to improve as we update the subtle shaping with new ideas that usually come from race sail development.
By adding our new Small Yarn/Light Film laminate to the upper sections, and elegantly integrating it into the graphic look, we add durability as well as weight reduction. Tube/rod battens are in tapered pockets to lower weight and keep the batten tips in column for best shape stability.
Switch will be the first choice for all around free sailing, doing best what windsurfers love to do.
