2013 HERO

4 Batten Wave

By 2012 it became clear that the HERO will spark a revolution. A year later, and many international tests this is certain: with this 4-batten miracle, designer Kai Hopf achieved a touch down. No matter who got his hands on the HERO no one wanted to give it back. For 2013 it has now been refined again and progressed to become the irreplaceable favorite sail of super hero Victor Fernandez. He does not want to sail with any other sail anymore - it just fits perfectly to his sailing style and the new multi-fin wave boards!

The new Hero is the logical development of the former, ultra modern 4 batten wave sail, which is repleted with the finest components and technical know-how. Regardless of under- or properly powered up, too much pressure or too little, this sail always generates power without becoming unstable. Despite a further draft back position it doesn’t become back handy, even when overpowered. This let’s you imagine, how much the wind range has improved compared to previous 4 batten sails!

The low weight makes for incredible handling. While rigging you can already imagine how light and soft the sail feels. The rotation is as smooth as silk, even with minimal outhaul tension.

On the water it immediately appears that your back hand is the throttle. Just sheet in and the HERO immediately builds up power, speeds up, and gets you going. On the wave it becomes a discreet engine always ready to accelerate when needed. The top is working very effective supporting the power. Therefore, you can safely choose a sail size smaller than with many other wave sails. This applies to almost any rider, regardless of weight.

Kai Hopf developed the BALANCED.LUFF.LENGTH, a precisely balanced ratio of luff length to boom length. As short as possible for most radical throw-ability and as long as necessary to generate sufficient stability for maximum wind range.
Design, processing, shape and features as the new iBUMPER mast protector make the radical HERO a perfect package that can measure up to the future in the competition must.

IMPORTANT: the HERO is exclusively designed for RDM masts due to its narrow sleeve and elastic characteristics. The smaller mast diameter perfectly matches this softer feeling sail and shorter luff.
