GATOR - Freeride
The Delta Quick Review: I have often wondered why no other brands build a sail to compete with the Gator. It's unique concept is a one model sail, from 3.7 to 8.0, morphing to cover the conditions each size will see the most. In other words; all the sails are designed around masts with the same bend; they all have similar rigging habits; they all have similar reactions to tuning on the water; they all have a similar feel from size to size; and they are all designed to suit the conditions you'll a particular size for. Or another way to look at it, is that these sails are designed to take away all the excuses one usually comes up with when they blame their gear for a bad day. Hmmm... maybe I just figured out why the idea hasn't caught on? Well for those of you who want to minimize gear struggles, and take some of the technical part out of your day of windsurfing, the Gator line is for you. They are built as the high-end freerider's, with attention to detail in aiding user-friendliness and a full X-ply construction long lasting durability.
The Gator sail range covers every type of windsurfing conditions from around the globe.
From lightwind freeriding to high-wind blasting.
The core principles are durability, manoeuvrability and a consistent feel across all sizes.
Every size is designed to echo the demand of the aggressive freeride rider no matter what the wind conditions. Batten count is optimised for every size to maintain a consistently soft feel and stability.
The perfect sail for plug and play performance combined with 100% X-Ply durability.
The smaller sizes feature a higher cut foot and geometry biased towards wave and high wind bump and jump. Larger sizes have a lower cut foot to generate more drive in lighter winds but still maintain the light, throw about feel.
