The windsurfing bug has hit you? You cannot wait to be back on the board to have fun and improve your skills? Just for people like you, Kai Hopf has developed the DRIVE_CLOTH. A modern school sail that makes learning and progressing incredibly easy. Even considering the solid cloth construction, it works amazingly well, is light in your hands and has great control during maneuvers.
The brand new DRIVE_CLOTH features a cutting-edge two and a half-batten layout 2.5 (3.0 m2 and up), which offers amazing performance for a very wide target group. It was developed in close cooperation with the most famous surf schools and associations, whose insights and experiences have influenced the concept significantly.
The DRIVE_CLOTH is an easy planing sail that will accompany any beginner or dedicated improver for a very long time. It’s super easy to get out of the water and very easy to control on all courses as well as during maneuvers. In sub planing conditions it really gives the rider something to hold on to which is fundamental for improving your balance. This is especially advantageous in choppy water. Once planing, the sail stays very well balanced; the wind pressure can be gradually transformed into speed, so that the rider is always in full control.
The use of Dacron and Vinyl instead of mono-film makes the DRIVE_CLOTH virtually indestructible, which is why it is perfectly suited for use in windsurfing schools. The Dacron fulfills a second, very important purpose: thanks to the flexible material in combination with the unique profile the sail loads very gently. Thus, the DRIVE_CLOTH develops powerful propulsion enabling great planing power. Despite the full profile the draft remains very stable even when fully powered up.
