Luff: 448 Boom: 187
The 360 Free covers the needs of everyone from beginner to accomplished freestyler. It has everything a transition sailor wants without being complicated to rig. The refined leech twists away cleanly and progressively with increased downhaul tension. Rigging with a looser leech lowers the draft, making it a perfect match to single-rear strapped boards. A touch less downhaul places the draft to work with the wider boards most use to hit their first jibes. Adding downhaul flattens the foil noticeably, making for better depowering in transitions. It also reduces the size of the sweet spot, transforming the sail from a solid-pulling freerider to sensitive freestyle sail. The longish boom ensures early planing but also slows down rig movement a little.
