Oops; no mas. You now have some new/old local competition. Doug van Zandt is making Hurricanes in the Gorge again.

Nice. I like the color on this one.
Occasionally using 5.7 zx9 but always puzzled on proper rigging. Both downhaul and outhaul are not clear settings. Had bunch of instructions and tips from NW and here on the forum (thanks Isobars) but still do not have a good sense on tuning. Would be great to see a video. I do not understand why it is so hard to post some on the manufacturers website. Ezzy has bunch of videos and they are super helpful. Very Happy

Don't you know what a sail is supposed to look like?
OP, add a touch more out, add a touch more down.
Almost planing, loosen out so it just touches inside of boom, barely loosen a bit of down.
The tuning is to adjust power. Deeper sail more, flatter sail less.

Yup, if that's the wind you sail in.

And don't forget to rig (and de-rig!) with the logo up and the battens below mast Rolling Eyes

Really tiring to go wound up 5.0 Thur, then fully powered 6.0 Fri, after 3 weeks of just windfoiling.
Landing jumps seem to overload these 71 year old legs.
