SuperFreak Classic

The Superfreak Classic has influenced the global return of vibrant color back into windsurfing sails and now leads in material development.

The SuperFreak Classic is arguably the most forgiving, easiest handling, widest wind range sail ever created.
The 9th generation Superfreak has a new panel layout that provides the cleanest SuperFreak thus far.
The feel of the SuperFreak Classic is very soft. There is delayed response as the Dacron panels stretch to absorb strong wind gusts providing a super smooth ride that is easily controlled.
The manageability of the SuperFreak Classic allows sailors the possibility of pushing their limits with a positive outcome. The large PVC window will not haze and it can always be kept crystal clear using any glass cleaner type product. Since the introduction of the first SuperFreak to Maui waters in the summer of 2002 this sail model has now evolved with a totally redesigned Dacron panel layout as well as a proven Kevlar 15000 denier ""skeleton"" usage resulting in a snappier feel and more consistent performing sail.

The SuperFreak Classic is all about self-expression. On Maui as well as around the globe, we have an ever-growing core group of windsurfers who swear by the magic feel of this sail. The SuperFreak Classic is an absolutely unique sailing experience.

The 2 battens directly above the boom are both 90% in length, stopping just short of the mast sleeve. This batten design provides a super controllable, luffable sail that can be powered or de-powered in an instant. The SuperFreak Classic is the best tool for self-expression and FUN no matter what your age or ability!

Superfreak Classic Features
The Superfreak Classic is one of the best built sails in the world. The construction is second to none, and the durability of the materials is legendary.

All the edges of woven cloths are folded and hemmed under, all seams are glued and triple stitched. The mast sleeve can withstand having the mast break in two and splinter without damage to the sail. These are not normal features on ANY other brand of sail.

So take our sails and punish them all you want, you will not be disappointed.
FAN PATCH CLEW DESIGN
Made from 7 to 10 strips of our lightweight Dynamic Dacron. Over lapping all layers from the grommet and fanning out to single ply reinforcing. The fan patch efficiently distributes loads while staying lightweight. Dual stainless steel pressed clew rings allow for different clew heights and can be used to adjust leech tension.
SKID PAD
The soft full-length skid pad protects both the sail and the sailor. The soft EVA prevents scratches and chafing of the sailor's legs giving confidence to push hard and not worry about scraped legs!
STAINLESS/BRONZE PULLEY
New removable HSM tack pulley made with superior 316 stainless steel that won't rust in salt water (unlike our competitors 304 stainless) and bronze pulley wheels. This is a significantly stronger, corrosion free pulley than any other on the market.
MAST PAD
The mast pad built into the bottom of the mast sleeve provides maximum protection for the board and the sailor. The pad can be opened on one side to provide easy access to the mast extension and adjustment collar when rigging. Inside the bottom of the pad is a mesh pocket to stow the down haul line and other small items. The mast pad has logoed rubber chafing strips on the side to prevent wear from the board deck grip.
BOOM MARKINGS
The luff sleeve is marked with a boom height guide to make it easy to set the boom at the right height every time.
OX WEBBING®
Our mast sleeve is made with our exclusive Ox Webbing® leading edge and a combination of woven cloth sides triple stitched together. The mast sleeve is immensely strong and resistant to abrasion. This sleeve will laugh off a rock trip or a broken mast without damage.
SAILMAKER'S LEATHER
Real sail makers leather protection is found at the end of each batten pocket as well as encasing the top of the mast sleeve. The unidirectional nature of the leather provides far longer lasting protection than any synthetic material. The leather has the ability to absorb reef scrapes while plastics tend to tear or peal off in chunks after minor damage.
BATTENS
Super strong vinyl-ester rod battens with tapers ground to individual specifications for each sail. Each size of every sail has it's own set of custom tapered battens designed to exactly match the sail shape. The battens and the sail shape work together to provide maximum stability.
DOUBLE-SIDED PATCHES
Patches and plys are mirrored on both sides of the sail for superior strength. All edges are hemmed for strength and to prevent fraying.
SEAMS
All HSM seams are glued and fabric taped x2 for maximum strength - even the ones you can't see (our competitors don't tape seams that are under batten pockets).
KEVLAR® RIP STOP
15000 denier Kevlar® structural skeleton that takes all static loads. Each strand has a breaking strength of 450Kg and in 10 years less than .01% have broken.
WRAP STRAP
The Wrap Strap, which is neatly incorporated into the mast pad, can be used to secure your sail when rolled up.
CUSTOM COLORS
Unique to all sails in the mainstream windsurf market; the SuperFreak can be ordered in ANY color combination. No extra charge is added, only extra time to make it especially for you!
SOFT LUFF
The SuperFreak is designed with the 2 battens above the boom stopping short of the mast. This allows a small part of the sail to "luff" and creates a de-power system unknown in all other sails. This system can be used as a clutch to de-power at any time.
PVC ULTRA CLEAR WINDOW:
All PVC window for excellent visibility and endless endurance. Stays clear for the life of the sail.
UL (Ultra light) fabric
UL (Ultra light) fabric is the same lightweight polyester used in the canopy of surf kites. Though tear resistance is less than our standard Superfreak fabric, the weight reduction is significant. The effect of this material is a softer feel and lighter weight. Also sails can be rigged with less tension as material flexes more. UL built sails are not built with Ox Webbing luff sleeves except by request.
SuperFreak Dacron
The secret and the soul of this sail is the special lightweight polyester fabric used in the SuperFreak. This fabric is NOT the same dacron of the old days! This fabric is nearly 40% lighter and does not absorb nearly as much moisture. The fabric also has an amazing "memory" so even when damaged by laying the rigged sail on a rock or other object, it will heal itself in a few days. Expect these sails to outlast any other sails you have ever owned- most last over 5 years in fine shape!
UL (Ultralight) Sleeve
UL (Ultralight) Sleeve does not utilize the OX® Webbing in order to save weight. When the sail is wet, this can add up to 1 full kilo in weight savings when combined with UL fabric. The Ox webbing is replaced by normal sleeve material, but the construction remains the same. This allows for the many colors of our sleeve material to be offered, unlike the Black or White OX® webbing.
