SWAGGALICIOUS - POINT-7 2013 SWAG 3 BATTEN
3 BATTEN wavesails? YES!! BECAUSE THEY CAN !
My smallest wavesails for coming(stormchase)season will be a set of SWAGS!
3.2m2 / 3.7m2 / 4.2m2!!
The 3.2m2 has a double function though. Ill be probably using it when forces hitting 9 - 11 beaufort. My 9year old son will be using it aswell, but then at the lakes nearby doing some kiddywindsurfing.
close ups of the SWAG 3.7m2.
okay some rigging.. above it says: 370 and compatible mast 340.. ok lets put a reccommended srdm 370 inside, with zero extension. it seemed out that it was a no go!
There should be saying -10cm (360cm)/ Here a pic with a 340rdm and extension set on +20cm.
I used a Waymaster which is quite specific. I used to weight my fishes/carps/catfish with it, when i get to catched a big one. :-)
The 3.7 m2 SWAG, see pic below. 2.8kg on the waymaster
SWAG 3.2m2 2,6 kg( my old P7 sado 3.3m2 from 2010/2011 was 3.350kg)
SWAG 3.7m2 2.8 kg
SWAG 4.2m2 3.0 kg
SALT 3G 5.6m2 3.8 kg, which is by far lighter then my sado 2G 5.4 from last year, which i measured on 4.250kg.
CURIOUS about different weights?
Other P7 sails i had on the same scale:
3.2 swag'13 2.6kg
3.7 swag'13 2.8kg
4.0 salt'12 3.3kg
4.2 swag'13 3.0kg
4.5 sado'11 3.9kg
4.5 sado2g'12 3.7kg
5.0 sado2g'12 4.1kg
5.4 sado2g'12 4.250kg
5.6 salt3G'13 3.8kg 2013! check the weightdifference!
6.4 sado2g'12 4.5kg
6.6 sado'11 Heavy!
By far, the 2013 wavesails are much lighter then the years before. Should improve its handling alot. The swingweight goes to a minimum. Soon we ll see how they work out on the water :-)
I’m 38 yrs old. The last 25 yrs I've been surfing along the Dutch coastline.
My fave dutch spot is IJmuiden-NL. At times I'm travelling around in search for the best wind and waves.
I enjoy surfing in South Africa/Capetown, France/Bretagne, Ireland/Brandonbay, UK/Cornwall, Denmark/Hanstholm.
Besides wavesailing, i am also into SUP’ing/Wave and cruising around on a SUP with my loved ones. Just love to spend time on the water.
Occasionally i go GPS-speedsurfing. My PR so far is max 78.5 kmh with an average 74kmh (5x10sec). Would like step up and go over 80km/h.
The main issue, i mostly go wavesailing in hurricane conditions.
Wavesailing always been my #1 passion. In that catagory id like to; work on my wavesailing techniques, land more backloops, tweaking tabletops, do Frontloops, with force 10-11 do insane high jumps.
Wouldnt want to miss out on a stormchase for the world. My 5-Oceans 3.0m2 3batten is ready to get wet! I’m ready for the next stormchase! Are you?
