We proudly present the Aphix v1!
Ever since we started the Flight Sails brand, people have been asking if and when a 5 batten sail would be available - understandable, as a 4 batten wave sail might not be the best choice at many spots around the world. A 5 batten sail still has clear advantages over a 4 batten sail on lakes, spots with extremely gusty winds, chop, etc.
Up to size 4,5 there is not really much places that benefit of a 5 batten vs. 4 batten, but above, depending on your spot, it can make a big difference. This is why we have put a lot of effort in building a 5 batten sail for our range ever since we started. It’s design note was inspired on the Zorro, but it would have to be more useable in difficult conditions. It had to feel more stable in it’s larger sizes and match free wave boards, freestyle and free ride depending of it’s size.

Incredible performance with attention to detail
Flight Sails is born on the Canary Island Tenerife, with the windsurfing capital of El Médano. There’s no better place to create and test new windsurfproducts. After lots of testing and proto’s the Zorro 4-batten wavesail is the amazing result of a journey that once started as a hobby project.
The Flight Sails designer José Fernandez created ‘The Zorro’ together with partners Bjørn de Vos & Bart David. Most of the testing is done by Dany Bruch. One if the most talented windsurfers around. His knowledge of saildesign and sail feel helped a lot by finalzing the final product.
The philosophy of Flight Sails is simple: the best design, with the best materials at an affordable price.Bezoek de Flight Sails website
