The KS3 is still THE wave sailor's choice. Three out of the last four Aloha Classic contests have been won by the KS3 sail. It is the only 3 batten sail proven to be worthy at the highest level, and may be the best down the line wave sail in the world.

Powerful yet unbelievably stable the three batten design has radically less sail momentum which leads to faster response times and improved feel. The result 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 2018 is our even lighter lightweight OX Webbing sleeve that is nearly indestructible. Even a broken mast in the sail will rarely damage this new .055 mm thick amazing fabric.

Jeffrey has developed an amazing new batten SuperSkin® for all the 8mm battens that contains any failures allowing for mess free batten replacement with no sail damage.

Newly designed top of the sail sleeve is softer allowing for the sail to be rolled even smaller.

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.
