FireLight

The revolutionary Firelight will transform the way you think about windsurfing.

The first thing you notice about the Firelight is its weight; at only 2.9kg for a 5.3m this is the lightest production 5 batten wave sail on the market today. Once on the water this is transferred into a light and direct feel in the hands, which redefines possibilities in your wave sailing. Whether you sail in onshore bump and jump or mast high Ho'okipa you will complete more moves, build confidence and develop skills faster.

The range was designed to rig on shorter masts compared to other sails in our lineup with the 6.0m perfectly suited to a 400cm and the 4.7m on a 370cm mast; this further reduces overall rig weight.

The key materials used are the ODL09 Technora and the super light C1295 laminate supplied by USA based market leader Dimension-Polyant. These exotic materials enable us to deliver a super light and responsive sail, which is built to survive the toughest of conditions.

C1295 LAMINATE
Made from both a scrim and an X-ply yarn laminated with a thin film this material is incredibly light yet very stable, strong and amazingly durable.
ANTI-CHAFFING BATTEN BUTTONS
Rugged PVC buttons that can be dragged across parking lots whilst protecting the sail from abrasion.
ANTI-CHAFFING HEAD BUTTON
A larger rugged PVC button on the tip of the mast sleeve that can be dragged across parking lots whilst protecting the sail from abrasion.
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.
CRUMPLE ZONE
An often overlooked feature of our sails is the Crumple Zone on the foot of the sail. This area is regularly abused being crushed, crumpled and creased by the sailor and the board. Regular laminated materials can´t cope with this kind of treatment but it is no problem for the exceptionally tough T18070G high performance woven Dacron.
LIGHTWEIGHT BATTEN POCKETS
Our new lightweight batten pockets are made from the performance laminate MPK4 which combines a Kevlar yarn, polyester scrim and taffeta combined with a film.
LIGHTWEIGHT MAST SLEEVE
The sleeve is made from two different woven materials with a low stretch 161 gram Dacron at the top taking the downhaul load and a more open weave softer cloth below. With no center seam the sleeve is as light as possible with no stitching to wear out.
SKIDPAD
The soft 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 or damaged sails.
TECHNORA PATCHES
Our patches feature OLD09 laminate a high performance material designed to absorb a wide variety of loads. It is produced with Technora® Black in the warp and fill and 22° X-ply. This material is very low stretch and has an excellent strength to weight ratio which has allowed us to lighten the patches considerably without compromising strength.
TECHNORA PATCHES

This material is very low stretch and has an excellent strength to weight ratio which has allowed us to lighten the patches considerably without compromising strength.
WRAPSTRAP
A simple elastic loop and button system keeps the sail tightly rolled when not being used.
TACK PULLEY
The tack pulley is made with superior 316 stainless steel (that will not rust in salt water) and bronze pulley wheels. This is a significantly stronger, corrosion free pulley than any other on the market.
