Side-shore wave sail
The Legend remains our flagship sides-shore wave sail. After lowering the aspect ratio last year, a full season of daily testing focused on size-by-size fine tuning of the Legend designs.
The result is a perfectly balanced, meticulously refined machine. The moderately forward oriented draft eases transitions perfectly from driving bottom turns to correctly neutral when coming off the top. The excellent combination of balanced power and incredible high end control optimizes the smooth, light handling even in the most gnarly, gusty, offshore conditions. The Legend's great control expands its popularity from side shore wave conditions to super high wind areas like the Gorge or Pozo, where overpowered handling is key.
New for 2013, is the extensive use of exclusive MauiSails™ light weight gradient X-Ply™ in the upper sail body. This custom material has excellent strength to weight properties and produces an original gradient effect that ties in with new bright colors to make the Legend stand out on the water like never before. This material is the result of several years of development and long term testing of our special Small Yarn Light Film laminate type. Two custom weights of Visual X-Ply in the window area match their loads for perfect tension.
