VANDAL WINDSURFING SEASON 2016

 Open the catalogue to page 1

ABOUT US At Vandal we are certainly not new kids on the block. We were born under the wing of Gaastra, a company that has been leading the field for over 25 years, and we were born with a purpose… we aim to create the highest performing products at low costs. Windsurfing is an expensive sport, there is no denying that. It’s time for a fresh new approach, to buck the trend, to offer more for less... Here we don’t believe in having a large international team of riders, we don’t have the overheads of a small start up company and we don’t invest large budgets into fancy marketing campaigns. No, our...

VANDAL RANGE 2016 We use only the best materials for our Vandal range. The very light and durable “Dimension Polyant” 2ply and xply material is used throughout all the sails. This along with high quality clear and coloured mono film gives our sails high UV resistance and come in a range of great colours. We also included our own newly developed “IYU” neon water repellent mast sleeve material which is both the lightest in weight and strength aroun

INTELLIGENT MASTSLEEVE CURVE The intelligent mast sleeve curve has been introduced to the ‘Mission’. It is made with a narrow sleeve from the top of the sail down to the first snap on camber that sits just above the boom. The sleeve then opens up creating a deeper powerful profile with a nice twist at the top of the sail. This allows for an incredibly stable balanced feel in the hand and excellent early planing capabilities. 1. 2. 1. RAF MASTLEEVE FOR - EASY HANDLING - EASY WATERSTART - HIGHER PROFILE STABILITY 2.

RADICAL WAVE 100% XPLY The Enemy is our hardcore wave sail designed to cope with everything there is to be thrown at it. For 2016 we have made some major adjustments not only to the design but also by upgrading the entire range to a bombproof HD construction. The 2016 Enemy now comes with a shorter mast and longer boom lengths benefiting in a more compact, stable feeling in the hands. We’ve also added more surface area in the top of the sail and given a deeper profile in the centre of the sail. By doing this, the Enemy now has less loose leech and much more power for onshore wave conditions. The...

X - WAV E The Riot is our best handling and performance wave / freestyle sail. All wave sailors out there want that lightweight feel in their hands whilst receiving constant power throughout their turns, and all freestylers want that power instantly to pop into their moves. For 2016 knew there was no need for an overhaul to an already test winning proven sail. So for the new range we have made only minor adjustments and tweaks to a few key sizes where we felt improvements could be made. So for the 2016 Riot range we will be keeping the short luff concept, the bionic concave panel layout and all...

FREERIDE The Venture is our answer for a ‘one sail for all conditions’, a perfect match for the everyday freerider out there. Its design comes with our best quality x-ply for durability, coloured monofilm for great UV protection and our lightweight durable mast sleeve material. For 2016 we have introduced a new cross batten, cut out the leech to shorten the boom length and produced an incredibly balanced sail. The Venture is a perfect sail for most free riders using 100-200 litre boards and also comes as a complete packaged rig. As with all our rig packages, it’s designed for its ease of use and...

FREEMOVE FREERIDE The Addict is our no cam crossover Bump and Jump sail. The extremely versatile 2016 Addict has had a full range modification to bring a very balanced sail that delivers plenty of power for lightning fast speeds. We know how some freeriders out there like to get airborne and mix things up a bit on the water, for that reason we’ve focused on keeping the Addict as manoeuvrable as possible. The slightly concaved leach design eliminates any leach flutter whilst maintaining stability. The highly water resistant dacron luff panel keeps the sail lightweight and comfortable whether you...

FREERACE FREERIDE The Stitch is our no cam Freeride / Freerace sail. It has once again blown the competition away with its test winning results and incredible top end speeds. For 2016 we have improved the entire range giving the rider more control and improved power, allowing faster board speeds. The Stitch is the perfect companion to any freerider out there looking to use anything in the 90-180 litre freeride boards and who wants to go FAST! The 2016 Stitch does everything for you, just hook in, lean back and feel the acceleration. For a non cambered sail you won’t believe speed and stability...

The Mission is our twin cambered race sail. We thought it was about time to extend our sail range and build on the incredibly fast Stitch. The 2016 Mission is all about huge wind ranges, early acceleration and providing faster board speeds. From the top of the mast we have a narrow sleeve down to the first snap on camber that sits just above the boom. Right here we’ve opened up the mast sleeve to give a deep powerful profile providing all the acceleration and top end speed you can handle. The Mission maintains its lightweight stable feeling in the hand for 2016, the perfect sail for going fast...
