LONG SESSIONS WITH MINIMAL FATIGUE.

The new Guru is the product of many years of steady design evolution. A consistent favorite among discerning riders worldwide, it delivers smooth, easy power and effortless handling in strong wind. The cut of the sail, combined with the PVC window make the sail feel soft and light in the hands, allowing for long sessions in challenging conditions with minimal fatigue. In addition to delivering a flexible feel, the PVC window, can stay clear for the life of the sail.

The Guru excels in all wave and wave style sailing conditions, pairs well with the full range of fin setups, and matches best with the Custom Powerwave and the One Freewave.

Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to test the Guru 3.3-it really saved me on those high wind days and made for some epic sessions. I thought I would give a little feedback.

Here are my thoughts on the sail/mast:

Overall, it was incredibly stable and consistent. While it felt really similar to the Banzai I definitely noticed a softer, smoother delivery of power, especially in the gusts. I was able to handle the sail really easily in rougher wind and water. It was steady yet responsive and allowed me to sail when no on else would brave the conditions.

I didn't get to play around with different out-haul settings as much as I wanted to because my boom was a few cm too long. I ran it through both holes and it delivered the traditional Goya feel.

The combination of the light-weight sail and 99% carbon mast was really surprising at first and I found that I didn't need to be as aggressive as normal. I did try a few tricks and was really impressed by how easily the sail came around.

One thing I noticed was that the sail pulled on my mast hand much more than any of my other sails (is it correct to say it has a very forward draft?). I ended up moving my harness lines forward and this fixed it. At times I would have liked to have a little more power but this can most likely be blamed on the gusty conditions.

Although I don't have a lot to base comparisons on, I hope I at least expressed my excitement and appreciation for your sail designs. I look forward to hearing back from you and am always willing to test and review!

Thanks Again!
