With its performance pedigree proven by Philip Koster’s multiple World titles, the Blade Pro is more than capable of delivering the ride of your life. Butter-smooth handling and the stability to extend both ends of the wind-range mean you enjoy every minute of your time on the water.
This year’s edition has been tweaked and tuned based on Koster’s feedback. Increased luff curve adds skin tension to hold the profile forward and low to maximise wind range. The control-oriented geometry sets the rake angles to maintain downforce at the mast base whilst setting the clew below shoulder height where it can be most easily managed. Stance is balanced with the upper shaping moved forward to put less pressure on the back leg and reduce fin load.
The HyperSpider membrane consists entirely of high-tech fibres: Technora for the body fibre, and now Dyneema for the X-Ply to increase strength. The pinnacle of windsurf sail materials.

HYPERSPIDER: THE WEB
In a traditional X-ply sail, very few of the fibres are aligned with the load of the sail, this means the film takes the load, this means the film has to be thicker and heavier.
In a HYPERSPIDER sail each membrane is custom built for each sail size and model. Every fibre is aligned along its exact load paths, this means film thickness can be reduced making a lighter sail.
