Never really familiarized myself with Point 7. They look like nice sails. Interesting that the ACX is designed so that there is no downhaul tuning. Makes even more of a case for adjustable outhauls.

I also have no-cams that look relatively flatter on the beach (even when set for power with the batten above the boom protruding in front of the mast). Both "types" have a deep profile when ...

My Simmer has full shape rigged and only moves about 2" more with wind.
Flat static sails are quicker to flip during jibes, and some say they uphaul slightly easier.
My Lofts are very flat. ...

A common critique of RAF sails is that they lose their deep draft as winds change, unlike cammed sails. Yet Ezzy Cheetahs seem to have a deeper pre-shaped profile than most other RAF sails I have ever ...

There are some old Liquid Pro sail sizes floating around the internet. 44 for 7.5 and 42 for 7.0. Fin area is likely a better apples to apples comparison. I think that is part of why you see 48's and ...

I also think a 42 or 44 sounds about right. Some manufacturers like Select and Makani have fin selectors where you can plug in your numbers and see what they recommend. My experience is it's tough to ...

Or why not foil? My immediate group of windsurfers ride slalom gear, formula or whatever depending on the wind. We're a bunch of old guys that like to drag race each other across the bay, or just crui ...
