Hot Sails Maui - Windsurf sail Hot Sails Maui - Windsurf sail

The SpeedFreak sail was developed by Jeffrey Henderson in conjunction with our forum participants. The idea was to make a fast SuperFreak for light wind flat-water sailing in the same style as our Dacron® SuperFreak and we are thrilled with the result.

This season we really put the SpeedFreak on a diet and cut down a lot on the sails weight, but more importantly, the WET sail weight. The new .55mm thickness OX webbing can reduce a wet sail weight by up to 3 pounds!

The SpeedFreak is an amazingly smooth riding sail. It is much easier to sail than a comparable monofilm freeride sail as the dacron absorbs the gusts, and the sail can be pumped onto a plane in very little wind. The ride is completely quiet and jibing is so smooth you would never guess you on a speed type sail.

The sail is not critical of your sailing style either. If your harness lines are a little out of balance, or your outhaul is slightly too tight or too loose, this sail can work with you. It turns lighter wind sailing into a completely low stress pleasure. It is no slouch for top end speed either equipped with race sail style tube battens for draft stability and weight reduction.

Now available with a super smooth rotating single cam below the boom the larger sizes stay fully shaped at all times. Full power while jibing, and water starting delivering a stable pull between gusts and lulls.
