Description: Neilpryde Alpha Windsurfing Sail 4.0m
Consistent power, and consistent control. With a design emphasis on manageable power and upwind ability, the Alpha is the sail in the NeilPyrde wave collection that is best suited to onshore, or sometimes less than ideal, wave sailing conditions. Regardless of your size, Alpha is the sail that delivers the power you need to get out of the disturbed air in the impact zone and into a good position. "out the back"- and take best advantage of the conditions.
Key Features of the Neil Pryde Alpha 4.0m Windsurfing Sail:The ALPHA has the most shaping and the least rotated profile of all NeilPryde wave sails, this generates the most power of any wave sail in the range delivering power in onshore conditions.
A mid-size head means the ALPHA can be designed with relatively high surface tension. This enhances upwind ability - without giving the sail a "top heavy" feeling.
The ALPHA is a low-aspect sail compared to the Combat and Zone which brings the power closer to the rider. This improves upwind performance, generates lift and delivers more constant power.
A wider luff-sleeve allows the sail to "neutralise" easily and be less "direct" in gusty conditions.
For 2008, sizes 4.5m to 5.4m all rig on a 400cm mast.
