Catalogue excerpts

“The new 2016 range has the distinct GA Gaastra feel and has been designed with the foundations of proven success. “ “Coming in the 2015 season as the PWA constructor’s champions and with Thomas Traversa as defending PWA wave world champion could not have given me a better sense of achievement and a renewed drive to continue on this winning path. “For our 2016 range, the team and I were very critical not to make unnecessary changes just for the sake of it. So for this season it became more about making a series of smaller steps and re-cuts that in the end has given us the greatest improvements....

In order to be able to reduce the weight of the sails we developed a completely new range of laminate materials, with a much thinner film supported by a double structure of fibers - a balanced scrim of fibers orientated in the warp that fit within a classic X-Ply angled series of fibers. From its structure the name 2-Ply arose. We have created a complex woven web with the highest durability that is also very lightweight. Besides the proven X-Ply, we use this laminate in the upper sail body to achieve minimal swing weight and protection of critical areas. • • • • • Less weight: use of new 2-PLY...

PROTECTED HEAD & CLEW We added an X-ply panel at the back of the window and at the clew of the wave sails to improve protection in this area from crushing.

Allows rider to adjust the extension across the foot of the sail from downhaul pulley to boom clew. More extension, more shape, more power. Its up to you!

The 2016 wave range continues to offer the most complete and versatile sails. Each model has its own individual characteristics, which can cater for any sailor’s needs or environment.

Adjustments to all luff curves, clew heights and batten layout / shaping has given better low-end response and acceleration. New panel layouts and less seams has made the ranges lighter and stronger. Our 2016 wave is better, brighter...
