Surfwave 3 Batten
Featuring the same quality window film as the Fringe Pro, with the addition of ultra-strong Spectra yarns for added tear resistance. An entire window area full wide spaced X-Ply.
The Fringe X Pro is a super lightweight, smooth power delivering and effortless handling sail in our wave range, yet it packs some hefty armor, and this is why it is big wave team rider Levi Siver’s top pick, as well as his personal Pro Model.
All other performance features of the Fringe X Pro are identical to the Fringe Pro.
Pro Construction, X-Ply window, Scrim panels.
Available in 2,8, 3,0, 3,3, 3,5, 3,7, 4,0, 4,2, 4,5, 4,7, 5,0, 5,3, 5,5, 5,7, 6,3 square meters.
Available in Blue & Fluo Yellow.
Cypher Pro vs. Fringe Pro
Cypher with 4 battens brings more stability to the sail, compared to Fringe’s 3, expanding the range and control particularly in stronger wind, while weights between comparable sizes of those 2 models are nearly identical at Fringe 3.7 = 2.69 kg and Cypher 3.8 = 2.68 kg.
Cypher power is “lifiting”. “Up” force compared to “neutral”. This lifting power makes the sail go well for both freestyle tricks and also foiling, where lift helps get you up out of the water and on foil more quickly. A lifting power delivery also works well for any rider in lighter wind, to help initiate early planing and easy handling.
Fringe power is “neutral” to “slightly down”. This power delivery really helps keep the rider settled in wave sailing where you really want to focus on driving your rail through turns without being lifted or digging the nose in too much. Fringe really allows you to feel the board on the water without too much input from the sail. Nevertheless, Fringe also goes well for foiling, because of its neutral lift, which makes the ride very predictable.
For maneuver oriented windsurf foiling, we recommend moving toward Cypher, compared to Fringe.
