NORTH SAIL WAVE
With North Sails’ new Wave sail windsurfing has changed in ways you couldn’t have imagined. For the better. This featherweight sail wants to be thrown around. Low swing weight gives you maximum precision while doing so, allowing you to surf as hard as you are willing to push it. No stitching, no seams. All moulded into one piece out of exclusive Dyneema Aramid Fibers, giving you a super strong sail that will be in your quiver for many years to come. This sail is designed for the most radical of wave sailors in the most radical of conditions, charging down the line with a very active sailing style. The waves are its home. Truly a wave sail unlike any other sail out there today. Revolutionary technology for windsurfing, brought to you exclusively by North Sails. Go Beyond.
A relatively compact outline, with a slightly reduced luff length, for low swing weight in maneuvers. The profile of the wave is slightly forward-oriented, subtle enough for the sail to power up easily, but remains active, agile, and playful. 3 battens in 4.7 and smaller, 4 battens in 5.3 to 5.8, for a super smooth and lightning-quick transition between power-on and power-off. Maximum wind range, stability, and responsiveness with fewer battens, and lighter weight, thanks to the 3Di Molded Construction.

North Windsurfing and 3Di
North Sails 3Di exemplifies outstanding value with industry leading shape holding and a longer service life compared to any other sailmaking technologies today. Proprietary software, engineering and construction methods allow 3Di sails to maintain their shape to an unprecedented level. There’s a reason why Volvo Ocean Race teams trust 3Di mainsail for 45,000+ miles around the world. Solo ocean racers are even circumnavigating the globe with 3Di sails for multiple laps. 3Di sails also have a lower cost of ownership than any other sail in the world.
3Di sails are significantly stronger and lighter than our competitor’s Laminate string sails. North Windsurfing is the only sailmaker who utilises ultralight unidirectional filament tapes to build sails from materials in their most basic elemental form.
