The boom is what we feel with our hands when sailing. It’s what makes us feel the wind in the sail. We develop sails - we have developed the racing sail which has won the PWA Slalom World Title, and a boom is an integrated part of the rig, which brings a winning performance to the rider. A boom curve needs to allow your front and back arm to sit in a natural ergonomic position while sailing, automatically positioning the sail at the right angle for the wind to enter and exit the sail. This position varies with the wind strength and windsurfing discipline, so each boom size needs to be developed accordingly.

and windsurfing discipline, so each boom size needs to be developed accordingly.

The first target from the Point-7 Black Team when developing a boom is the curve. This is not about having a curve from the new generation as many might call it. It’s about having a curve which allows your front and back arm to sit in a natural ergonomic position while sailing, automatically positioning the sail at the right angle for the wind to enter and exit the sail. This position varies with the wind strength
