Trainer and School Sails

Feb 7, 2010

Goya Surf in action

This category has a few variations in what they offer:


1. Trainer Sails: These are "triangle" shaped sails that are designed to catch the wind when it is very light. The foil is usually fairly "baggy" and not supported with any or very many battens. These are perfect sails for learning when the wind is light.

2. School Sails: Instructional schools need to have a variety of sails for beginner to intermediate riders and the most important thing is that all are durable so that they last a long time. The school should have "trainer" models (as described above) and also some more intermediate level rigs that perform better in a little more wind.

Severne Synergy

Severne Synergy

The Synergy line is aimed at first time windsurfers/families. What inspired you to produce the range?

Is there anything else like it out there? The reason I wanted to design the Synergy is that windsurfing is just too complicated. It's become a very high performance sport and the recreational windsurfer has been forgotten. If someone wants to take up windsurfing they need to understand a load of technical info just to buy some gear to start sailing. Everything is sold as separate components, so you need to understand what sail goes with what mast, etc. Too hard. Top end mountain bikes or skateboards are sold in component form, but all the entry-level stuff comes ready to go. But with windsurfing it's ALL component based

What is the exact thinking behind the Synergy?

The concept is that you don't have to know a lot about windsurfing to be able to firstly buy gear that all works together, and secondly to be able to set it up. All the tuning and setting of the sail is simplified, so it's just about matching all the colours on the components and pulling the ropes to the end. If you have the red sail, you set the boom to the red setting and the mast extension to the red setting and then tension the sail. All the relevant info is printed on each part of the sail, so it pretty much tells you what to do
