Hitting the waves at high speed to pull out new school aerial wave moves, whether you are jumping or going for aerials. The right mix between drive on the bottom turn, but at the same time a neutral on/off performance going for the cut back. Ricardo Campello is our perfect testimonial to prove what The SALT PRO can do. It?s not only going to podiums, but it?s about being the most radical out there in any situation and conditions. With this sail we want to make sure that you feel confident in trying anything out! Scoring quality points on the water will make you stand out from the rest.
The Salt is the Point-7 all-out performance orientated four batten wave sail. Fast riding on the waves, quick to respond in new school wave sailing moves, and ultra-light in your hands. A pure new school wave sail! Adjust the back-hand power, and it?s ready to offer precision, according to the wind strength, the board we use, and what we want to do. We can flatten the profile in Side-Shore conditions to neutralize the profile of the sail in high speed surf, which can give more power in the back hand to get more support in on shore conditions, or when you want quick acceleration to hit the lips of the waves. It?s fast, it?s agile, it?s up to you to let the next move be or dream, or to make it happen. The Salt is ready to stand out!
ON THE WATER
The Salt translates to plenty of useable bottom end grunt, the large luff panel expanding to significantly increase the depth of the draft. The delivery is soft and forgiving, and comes through both hands, the centre of effort focussed around the rider. Used in properly powered conditions, this transforms into a power-hungry animal, locked in and dancing over the water as it advances in every gust. It moves smoothly around the rider thanks to the softness in the luff panel, enabling to keep the pedal down in attack mode, even in the most uninviting conditions. With speed comes light handling, which combined with the Salt?s on-off capacity when eased out, makes it a formidable weapon on the wave and in transition.
Batten 3 has been completely re-tuned to increase further the comfort. More profile on the front, straighter exits. This allowing to close further the leach in the batten 2 area, increasing stability and power. Batten 4 has been lowered to allow more freedom to the clew making the sail even more friendly when simply cruising.
