The time is right for another way. What do we really need and what do we really want? We asked the right questions first, and fully armed with crystal clear design objectives set to work with the best design team for the job. The result :- we believe a truly purposeful, concise sail range with everything we need , bags of WINDRANGE, hard as nails DURABILITY, EASY to SET UP, EASY to TUNE , gimmick free with bang on PERFORMANCE and a massive dose of ATTITUDE! Windsurfers are alive with Attitude, universal and binding, defined through persistence, emotion, injury, and the euphoria of it all. That’s what we get, the importance of the right things, really great performing sails that go with reliable affordable masts that look sharp and work sharper. We are passionately proud that our first line of Attitude sails is founded on these principles to offer a real choice... We would like to say big thanks to all the real windsurfers who have provided the DNA for this exciting project, and brought Attitude sails to life. Intelligently designed toughly engineered alive with attitude. Like we said, it’s time we changed.

WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH, THE TOUGH GET GOING.

Sander is a busy man as the owner of a construction company. He doesn’t have a lot of time to go sailing, but when a storm hits, his instincts kick in. He drops everything, and naturally you’ll find him on the water. With the car doors still open, clothes strewn across the beach, he’s already sprinting towards the break. There isn’t a second to lose. Giving him true global wave performance with an instant on-off backhand feeling, without losing that important grunt and stability, means the Rebel is the weapon of choice for his riding style and massive airs.

5


A super versatile reformist wave sail, with an even balance between handling, power and on/off control during wave riding. Its wide range of trim settings allow it to function comfortably in both onshore and side shore wave sailing. The Rebel comes with well-defined settings to excel in all these conditions, and has a neutral to slightly soft feeling through the hands. The Rebel will fuel the desire and motivate the senses. From weekend warriors to pro sailors, onshore to offshore, knee high to double mast, the Rebel will not hold back wherever your Ho’okipa is.

HOME IS WHERE THE WIND BLOWS.

Anton decided that a normal settled down life wasn’t for him. He bought a big van. Now he travels wherever it’s windy. His life truly revolves around the beach and the water,…any water. Working as a self-employed carpenter, he is master of his own time and can get on the ride whenever there’s wind or waves. Encountering everything, from mushy onshore European waves, flat blue water freestyle, or his favorite: Clean head high waves with a slight offshore breeze. He needs a sail that can perform in any conditions, but still feel light in the hands. That’s why he uses the ALLSTAR.

9


A true crossover 4 batten all-round sail. Designed to be light and direct in terms of handling, but still quiet and neutral in your grip when riding. This especially suits “light footed” riders who prefer a sail with a precise, refined and delicate feel. You choose the Allstar for true all-round wave/freestyle performance; cover any needs in every session for that perfect sailing day. The Allstar excels whether the water is glass or the surf is class. Whether you want to ride with a firmer leech to balance the power for freestyle, or soften it for ripping down the line surf, the Allstar’s tuning range gives you all the control you need.

THE HARDER THE RIDE, THE GREATER THE PRIZE.

Raoul didn’t start windsurfing too long ago, but he’s totally hooked, and hungry to progress fast! Making the most of all conditions as long as he’s on the water. Blasting up and down, jumping and perfecting his carve gybes. Being a student who doesn’t own a car, he mainly sails at his local lake but, when the opportunity arises, you’ll find him at sea. With the versatility of this 4WD-machine, the Source excels in a huge range of conditions. Raoul knows that the big trim range means that he needs less sails to cover all wind strengths. That’s less weight on the bike trailer, and a great day every time!

13


Whether you’re forming a new habit or re-kindling an old one, the Source is a true freeride sail in the key sizes for driving a wide range of boards. Super light to sail, easy handling & fast on the plane, easy to tune with no concession on build quality and durability. A stable profile to optimize the sails wind range was achieved by adding a sixth batten for maximum stability in the 6.4 and 7.2 sizes. The stability and smooth power deliver is paramount to its performance. The confidence induced from these characteristics let you push your boundaries without hindrance from the rig.

WHEN IT’S WINDY. NOT IF,…..BUT WHEN.

Reinout looks like a white collar guy when you see him walking down the street. But changing suits whenever there’s a glimpse of wind and a second to spare, you will find him at his most important appointment of the day, on the water. Tearing it up, racing up and down and throwing smooth laydown gybes, flying upwind then diving back down on the biggest gusts, screaming fast. Reinout likes it when his diagnosis adds up. He appreciates subtle power and control, durability and classic performance. Living near a gusty lake, he chooses the RPMs for maximum wind range and stability. His RPMs add up, .....next client please!

16

17


The RPM is tailor made for the demanding recreational sailor. There is no compromise with the performance of this six and seven batten no cam engine. It comes very close to the limits of a true slalom sail but without the cams, and the benefits of simplified rigging and handling. The sail adapts to any kind of conditions whether riding in angry chop or ironed flat. A wide variety of trim settings provides a massive wind range. Of course you don’t have to ride RPM stacked to the max all the time, but we’re sure you’ll find yourself searching out the punchiest gusts and pushing the red-line.

LESS TALK, MORE ACTION.

JeanPierre was born as a true waterman. He started windsurfing because his uncle worked in a small surfboard factory. He taught himself how to sail on a small lake, and now 35 years later he’s working as a windsurf board repairer and his love for the sport never dies. Actions speak louder than words with him and only two things count. Being fast and having the most buzzin ride whatever the weather. Seeing all the different sail trends come and go he chose the Hornet because he needs a sail that’s fast, stable and has a massive wind range, yet without the hassles of a heavy slalom rig. Easy choice,….Easy fast

20

21


A 3-cam sail, with a moderate volume luff tube provides the performance advantages of a race sail, but without the drawbacks that come with it. SDM or RDM mean compatibility is not an issue. Summarizing the Hornet: profile stability, top performance, easy and effortless handling characteristics with smooth cam rotation provide the pure efficient sensation and huge wind range. Despite having 3 cambers, the Hornet doesn’t feel heavy in the hands, making it easy and accessible in all challenging conditions. The Hornet, rig easy, trim easy, fast….EASY

S E R U T A E F Y KE

ADS (ANTI DEFORMATION STRINGER) Ultra low stretch tape oriented to maintain a stable forward profile.

RDM & SDM TEK CAMS Hornet model only. Tough built durable cams are supplied for both SDM and RDM masts. RDM for a softer “breathing” rig for increased control and lighter riders. SDM for a taught direct rig with a more powerful feel. TEK cams ensure a locked profile with super smooth rotation. Rollers are bolted in place rather than pinned, are secure through the most aggressive sailing session. Batten angle is limited to 14 degrees by their profiled shape, further aiding rotation.

24

BOOM HEIGHT INDICATORS Five printed markers help you get your favorite boom height setting.

CAM SPACERS Hornet model only. Fit these between the cam inducer and batten pocket end if any vertical wrinkles are present in the mastsleeve. Achieving a perfect, smooth and efficient leading edge profile. To avoid over tensioning the luffpocket and affecting rotation, use no more than 2 spacers per cam.

DACRON LUFF PANELS Rebel and Allstar models use a slightly stretch oriented Dacron luff panel. Benefiting the sails with neutral handling in manoeuvers, smooth power delivery and enhanced trim range.

FOOT BATTEN & LUFF PANEL REINFORCEMENT INTERFACE All Attitude sails feature a triangular reinforcement patch in this critical area. Preventing deformation from both rigging and impact forces which could otherwise cause breakage.

DOUBLE CLEW EYELETS Far enough apart to have a determinable effect between upper, increased power and reduced leech twist, and lower, less power, more leech twist and more control when overpowered.

BOOM / CLEW CUT OUT Hornet and RPM only. The sails release area is increased by the clew design’s ability to induce an s-shape in strong winds. The larger effective leech area created by the cut out clew helps the sail breathe more easily across a range of trim settings.

PVC FOOT STRIP Protects your sail from damage caused by board non-slip and on land abrasions.

3D RUBBER MOULDED TOP PROTECTION Takes the first punishment when your sail is in contact with rough surfaces during rigging or storage.

25


MASTSLEEVE OPENER Easier mast feeding by keeping the upper luff sleeve open at the top of the boom cut-out.

BATTEN PROTECTION PU leather abrasion resistant bumpers, on batten pocket high points. Protection against scuffing and optimized durability.

DOWNHAUL PULLEY SYSTEM All Attitude Sails feature a low friction, stainless steel triple block downhaul pulley for easy tensioning.

BLIND STITCHED FOOT AREA No exposed stitching to wear through. Protects structural seams in the foot area for greater longevity.

CARBON ROD BATTENS To really optimize the performance of our flatwater sails, high spec carbon rod battens are used to ensure a stable profile. Large size Hornet and RPM models use a higher % carbon content for the longer battens.

BOOM ANTI-CHAFING STRIP All sails with a cross-boom batten are protected against chaffing by this PU leather strip.

EVA TACK AND DECK PROTECTOR WITH STOWAGE POCKET All Attitude Sails feature this moulded EVA board protector to save your feet and board from dents and cuts. On the inside you will find a storage pocket for downhaul rope.

LOW FRICTION HEAD CONSTRUCTION Using front to back webbing in the head construction allows the upper sail body to centralize perfectly. Maintains a clean foil shape from port to starboard tack due to easy rotation.

DURABLE LAYOUT CONSTRUCTION All Attitude sails utilize super durable 5mil tri-axial X-ply in all panels with potential for scuffing during rigging. The X-plys used have the highest grade specs for stability, durability and UV resistance.

HOOK AND GO ELASTIC CORD As standard on most quality sails, just to make it easy to secure your sail in its tightly rolled storage mode.

EXTRA STRONG X-PLY AND MONO-FILM For no compromise durability and years of trouble free use, all Attitude sails use 5 mil X-ply and double thickness high quality monofilm. (That’s twice as thick as most of the competition!)

CAMBER METAL SUPPORT CLIPS Provide increased durability and reliability for smooth camber operation due to no contact point degradation.

STANDING BATTENS The Rebel and Allstar in the bigger sizes are equipped with standing battens. These improve performance in the upper end which makes the sail more stable.
