Jason Diffin: “The Nexus is pure freeride and freerace performance. While cut for power, speed and control in all sizes, the focus is on maneuverability in 4.3-6.9 and lift and control in sizes 7.5, 8.2 and 9.0. Forward and focused drive and crisp, easy handling make Nexus the “go to” sail for maximum performance in bump and jump and flat water conditions.”

ECO Concept
Goya ECO sails make use of factory stocked Goya foils and cloth, hence not creating the need and impact of producing new materials. What that translates into is an economical advantage for you and an ecological advantage for nature.

ECO Construction
These sails are a win win for both you and mother nature. They are at the same time economical and ecological by making use of factory overstocked genuine Goya foils and cloth. Hence the need and impact of producing new materials is reduced considerably, saving energy, raw materials and waste.

Reduced Head

2013 Hot Sails Maui SpeedFreekHot Sails Maui SpeedFreek

The SpeedFreak is a sail which was developed by Jeffrey Henderson in conjunction with our forum participants. The idea was to make a SuperFreak for light wind flat-water sailing in the same style as our Dacron® SuperFreak and we are thrilled with the result.

The SpeedFreak is an amazingly smooth riding sail. It is much easier to sail than a comparable monofilm freeride sail as the Dacron® absorbs the gusts, and the sail can be pumped onto a plane in very little wind. The ride is completely quiet and jibing is so smooth you would never guess you on a speed type sail. The sail is not critical of your sailing style either. If your harness lines are a little out of balance, or your outhaul is slightly to tight or too loose, this sail can work with you. It turns lighter wind sailing into a completely low stress pleasure. It is no slouch for top end speed either, having its outline and shaping based on our universally loved Speed Demon sail.

SpeedFreak Sail Features

  • The main body of the sail is made of 3 different weight Dacrons with the high-tension downhaul supported with 125 micron Polyant/Dimension X-Ply®. The sail is available with or without a PVC window.
  • 7 battens total (no cambers)
  • 4 Epoxy tube race sail battens
  • Ox-Webbing luff sleeve
  • Durable Dacron®, X-Ply® & PVC construction
  • Easy rigging and de-rigging
  • Extremely crease and wrinkle resistant
  • Smooth, and quiet power delivery
  • Colorful
  • Lightweight

Options: The SpeedFreak is available in custom colors, please let us know how you would like your new sail to look, alternatively you can choose one of the production colors.

2013 Hot Sails Maui SuperFreak ULHot Sails Maui SuperFreak UL

The UL (Ultra light) version of the SuperFreak Classic utilizes a fabric that is 50% lighter than our normal lightweight Dacron on 50% of the sail results in shocking performance.

Though the physical weight of the sail is nearly the same, the "feel" is dramatically lighter. Increased, gust absorption, lighter handling, and reduced momentum all result in the feeling of a sail .5m smaller.

The SuperFreak Classic UL can be rigged with much less tension than the SuperFreak Classic in standard Dacron. This gives great low-end range and inexplicable perfect stability in gusty winds making it a premium Freeride sail.

Superfreak Classic UL Features:

The Superfreak Classic UL is one of the lightest sails in the world. The construction is second to none, and the quality of the construction is amazing.

The Ultralight panels are sewn with smaller needles and thinner thread to keep them smooth and prevent seam damage. All the edges of woven cloths are folded and hemmed under, all seams are glued and triple stitched. The mast sleeve can withstand having the mast break in two and splinter without damage to the sail. These are not normal features on ANY other brand of sail.

2013 North NaturalNorth Natural

Windsurfing at its best! He who does not want to deal with technical trimming but just wants to enjoy windsurfing in the most relaxed manner has found exactly the right sail with the new NATURAL. Great handling and balanced performance! The NATURAL accelerates without pumping, offers a surprisingly high speed potential and inspires with its high draft stability.

The current NATURAL with CROSS.BATTEN.CONSTRUCTION CUTAWAY.CLEW makes the problem of choosing the right sail for many riders obsolete and brings windsurfing back to what it should be: pure fun! This is ensured by the all new VTS.PLUS trim indicators (FAST.RIGGING.INDICATION) which makes all NATURAL with fix-top even easier and faster to rig. Thanks to precise specifications of the mast- and boom lengths the down-and outhaul are simply pulled as far as it goes, done! Of course, the traditional VTS trimming dots are also available to allow all specialists more flexibility for maximum performance.

The secret of the perfectly balanced range of the NATURAL is the PROGRESSIVE.BATTEN.CONFIGURATION. As a result, the focus for sizes up to 5.8 is still on handling and draft stability, which explains why only 5 battens are in place. At 6.2 and above, the design focuses on performance while Kai Hopf once again concentrated on simple rig control and handling characteristics. Both versions offer excellent control, a high level of comfort, and plenty of planing ability - the perfect synthesis of speed, acceleration, and handling.

The new NATURAL with CROSS.BATTEN.CONSTRUCTION and CUTAWAY.CLEW will make windsurfing much less complicated, and we believe that for many sailors the problem of choosing the right equipment is almost obsolete.
VTS.PLUS fast-rigging indicators for even easier trimming

2013 North X_typeNorth X_type

One who says that only sails with cambers are true performance engines has never been out on an X_TYPE. This extremely versatile sail combines convincing handling and rigging of a NoCam sail with a very tangy power delivery and top speed. Simply powerful thrust and speed AND the ease of a NoCam sail for relaxed maneuvers. The secret is the reduced aspect ratio that was taken over by the World Cup winning sail WARP F2012 plus the relatively high sail foil tension which guarantees maximum performance even without cambers.

The new X_TYPE fascinates not only with top end performance but also during acceleration and planing due to the deep profile below the boom and the TT.TOP with active twist. Thanks to a pronounced CUTAWAY.CLEW the boom length is kept nice and short!

The forward draft location facilitates rig control and steering, and significantly contributes to what is an unusually high draft stability profile for a NoCam sail. Thanks to the PROGRESSIVE.BATTEN.CONFIGURATION, all X_TYPE models feature batten numbers relevant to size and application, with Kai Hopf managing to perfect the 6.0 and 5.4 sizes with just 6 battens. This helps reduce weight and improves handling. What’s more all X_TYPE sizes can be used with a single 460 mast - one mast fits all!

 

KEY FEATURES

  • 01 NEW: Steeper top batten for more power and better twist, greater acceleration and wider wind range
  • 02 iBUMPER, the most advanced and effective moulded mast protector
  • 03 Lower aspect ratio makes for increased acceleration after start and jibing
  • 04 Increased durability through solid X.PLY foot construction
  • 05 MINIMUM.MAST.CONCEPT: one mast (460-25) fits all sizes

2013 Sailworks Retro

Sailworks Retro

For 15 years the Retro has set the benchmark for freeride sail performance. In 2011 we introduced the most significant overhaul to the Retro in 10 years: a new tri-radial panel layout; significant weight optimizing for a lighter, livelier feel; and more low end power. For 2012 we are consolidating those very successful improvements with a small collection of subtle refinements on targeted sizes.

The Retro sports a low center of effort, made possible by a smaller head, longer chord and deeper foot profile. Mitigating the longer chord length is a clew cutout for the boom, which reduces the actual boom length, lowers the swing weight of the rig and makes it possible to use a given boom on a larger size sail than was previously possible.
