The KS3 is THE wave sailor's choice. Two back to back PWA Maui Aloha Classic 1st place results by our rider Morgan Noireaux and a 2nd place by Kauli Seadi on this sail have put to rest any doubt that this 3 batten sail design was a "fad". It is the only 3 batten sail proven to be worthy at the highest level.
Powerful yet unbelievably stable the three batten design has radically less sail momentum which leads to faster response times and improved feel.
The result for Kauli, Morgan and dozens of other top wave sailors is a more explosive wave ride and quicker action in the air. The result for the rest of us is an amazing new type of sail that seemingly does not get overpowered and maintains a locked in feel under all wind conditions.
The KS3 was created in 2013 with three-time world wave champion Kauli Seadi and sail designers Tom Hammerton, & Jeff Henderson. They work tirelessly to continually update this wining design. Our challenge has been to improve this near perfect design, and not change it for change sake. If we cannot improve on a shape, then we concentrate on construction and materials.
New for 2017 is our next generation of SLAMLAM® grid window material. This triple laminate utilizes extremely clear adhesives to keep your view of the wave cleared for a lot longer.
Returning for 2017 is our lightweight OX Webbing sleeve that is nearly indestructible. Even a broken mast in the sail will not damage this new .095 mm thick amazing fabric.
The KS3 is the most powerful and direct sail in our line. It is also our best wave sail for larger sailors who now can use large size wave sails in heavy surf with no drawbacks. The proven larger sizes of 6.1m, 6.4m and 6.7m have opened whole new areas of light wind wave sailing. When is comes to wave sailing Be Kauli Now.
