Description: Neilpryde Zone Windsurfing Sail 4.0m
The Neilpryde Zone is a light feeling, responsive wave sail particularly suited to sailing in classic "down the line" conditions. Less powerful than the Alpha and Combat, the Zone is designed to feel neutral on a wave, thus making the sail ideal for tight bottom turns and cutbacks off the lip. In these conditions, visibility of the wave is important, so the ZONE has a large window allowing the rider to easily observe the critical section of the wave. This combination of features makes the Zone the weapon of choice for NeilPrydes'' 3Z''s - Jason Polakow, Levi Siver and Alex Mussolini.
Key Features of the Neilpryde zone Windsurf Sail 4.0m:Light to moderate shaping for a lightweight feel. The ZONE has the least, and most forward oriented shaping of all NeilPryde wave sails.
A moderate aspect ratio; low and forward positioned centre of effort located as close as possible to the body (rider focused surface area).
A well rotated sail body that flattens out and de-powers instantly.
An open leech allows the top of the sail to release in down-the-line conditions.
Light, but strong, construction (fitting between the Alpha & Combat).
Large mono-film window for optimum visibility.
A reduction in luff-curve and increased width of the luff-sleeve combines to make the sail more forgiving, particularly during manoeuvres, and less "nervous" due to the increased softness.
Further reduced, and more forward oriented shaping for the 2007 ZONE will give the sail a lighter feeling and easier rotation. It will also prevent unwanted pull on the back hand when landing jumps or coming off the top of a critical section.
