Especially for kids and juniors we have put a huge effort into developing them their own sail range. According to the motto: Just the best for the kids!
Most sail brands use exactly the same materials for their kids sail as in the adult sails (e.g. heavy X.PLY). Surf instructors think about this as completely over engineered and refer to the basic physical requirements. Through years of cooperation with all major schools (e.g. VDWS, Club Mistral, Planet) NorthSails has gained an enormous competitive edge in this area, which is fully incorporated into the DRIVE.GROM line. A very balanced shape combined with lightweight cloths are used to perfectly suit the light weight and lack of power of the target group. The new DRIVE.GROM therefore is likely to be the most specialized kids sail on the market!
The DRIVE.GROM particularly benefits from the sophisticated mix of materials in combination with the iMODULAR.DESIGN and use of lightweight mono-film without compromising durability. Five sizes with individual batten configurations based on the ergonomics and physical power of the youngsters result in high-quality and high-performance equipment so that fun and success of the kids are guaranteed right from the beginning.
Additionally, we developed special mast/boom components for the DRIVE.GROM (see also the brand-new EPX at page 74-75)! That means the DRIVE.GROM is also available as complete rigs!
