DESIGNED FOR

Hitting the waves at high speed to pull out new school aerial wave moves, whether you are jumping or going for aerials. The right mix between drive on the bottom turn, but at the same time a neutral on/off performance going for the cut back.

 

THE TESTS ON MAGAZINES SAY

With masses of useable power and a fun active nature, the efficient and dynamic on/off profile is designed to be radical on the wave. Fast, agile, and supremely comfortable to us. A  versatile wave sail which can be used in all conditions. The Salt Pro’s soft delivery style makes its spirited rearward rider-focussed power, both useable and stable across a far-reaching tuneable range to make the most of in all coastal environments.

 

ITS CHARACTER

The Salt is the Point-7 all-out performance orientated four batten wave sail. Fast riding on the waves, quick to respond in new school wave sailing moves, and ultra-light in your hands Adjust the back-hand power, and it is ready to offer precision, according to the wind strength, the board we use, and what we want to do. We can flatten the profile in Side-Shore conditions to neutralize the profile of the sail in high-speed surf, which can give more power in the back hand to get more support in on shore conditions, or when you want quick acceleration to hit the lips of the waves. Light and balanced in the hands, the power comes from a high forward position, its punchy delivery softened by the stretch in the luff sleeve and large Dacron luff panel. Once the pressure builds and the draft reaches its elastic limit, the response from the sail’s high skin tension takes over, providing crisp, precise handling and inspiring the rider to explore its manoeuvre potential. On the wave, the Salt provides masses of useable drive through the bottom turn, whilst always remaining controllable. At the critical moment, it has a more of an on-off nature, the Dacron panel permitting the lungs of the sail to exhale and become light and easy for manoeuvre.

 

ON LAND

Rigged, the luff length increment provided 3cm extension is suggested to provide extra play. When applying downhaul, the Salt’s mid-leech falls away quickly whilst the upper leech remains relatively taut, its looseness masked in part by the large mini batten. There is plenty of luff curve in the sail’s leading edge, forcing a good deal of shape into the draft, whilst the two lower battens retain excellent rotation around the mast. It has a short boom length and high clew eyelet position, making it feel small and throw around yet providing direct contact with the power generated. Fast and efficient on the way out, it always feels compact and controllable, the breathability of the Dacron helps the sail to cushion impacts whilst dancing over sharp chop. active, yet controllable.

 

WHATS NEW FOR 2022

On the 3 bigger sail sizes the leach has been tightened to go more upwind and plane earlier to get back to the point break faster. The tightening of the leach and a narrower Dacron has allowed the sail to be more direct and reactive in light wind. The base batten has been lowered on all sizes to increase stability and power.

 

ON THE WATER

The Salt translates to plenty of useable bottom end grunt, the large luff panel expanding to significantly increase the depth of the draft. The delivery is soft and forgiving, and comes through both hands, the centre of effort focussed around the rider. Used in properly powered conditions, this transforms into a power-hungry animal, locked in and dancing over the water as it advances in every gust. It moves smoothly around the rider thanks to the softness in the luff panel, enabling to keep the pedal down in attack mode, even in the most uninviting conditions. With speed comes light handling, which combined with the Salt’s on-off capacity when eased out, makes it a formidable weapon on the wave and in transition.

 

COMPETITION RESULTS

The sail that has brought a PWA World Vice Champion results to Point-7

 

RIGGING

For wave riding the leach lose leach, should fall 15cm from the leach to the first mini batten on the top. (-3 cm from max downhaul setting). For the boom length, the lower ring to the minimum boom setting required in the specs. For Bump and Jumping, pull downhaul setting all the way to 1cm to the end of the setting required, and use the higher ring with the max setting required from the specs. Tighten top batten, but just remove wrinkles on the other battens, without over tightening them. The SALT PRO has been developed specifically on the C80 rdm masts.
