The Guru is the ultimate wave sail for easy power, comfort and control in wave and wave style conditions. Plus, it is the definition of armored durability.
The Guru is the product of many years of steady design evolution. A consistent favorite among discerning riders worldwide, Guru delivers smooth and easy power and effortless handling in strong wind. The cut of the sail, combined with the vinyl window make the sail feel easy and light in your hands, allowing for long sessions in challenging conditions with minimal fatigue. The Guru excels in all wave and wave style sailing conditions, down the line waves, onshore waves and powered up chop. It pairs with the full range of fin set ups, single, twin, thruster or quad. In addition to a flexible feel, the PVC window, with a little maintenance, will stay clear for the life of the sail.
Wildly popular with sailors looking for the ultimate flexy feel, easy power, massive range, monofilm free durability sail, the Guru continues to build its legacy. New window shapes increase the viewing area through the sail. Updated tack film materials strengthen the foot and increase the sail’s visual impact and style. New combination nylon/composite leech mini battens stabilize the leech trailing edge making the sail quieter in the hands and also more durable against material breakdown caused by an excessively fluttering leech.

Scrim Body Panels. The colored Scrim material used in the main panels offers super strong durability, super light weight and a supple and alive feel throughout the sail.
X-Ply Window Panels. X-Ply offers the same weight and feel of a clear window construction. The difference is increased durability through improved tear resistance. X-Ply film reinforced with yarns is incredibly tear resistant, the perfect body panel material for people looking for maximum durability. Featured on Banzai X, Guru, Scion.
Vinyl Window. Vilyl delivers a flexible feel to the sail as a whole, and the window, with a little maintenance, will stay clear for the life of the sail.
Hybrid dacron/scrim luff panels, Carbon Stretch Control, Poly Clew Titanium Clew Rings, Rip Stop Sleeve and a Molded Tack Fairing round off the peak quality package. Sleeve cut treatments as well as tack and foot reinforcements are now folded to increase durability and prevent edge fraying. A wider scalloped upper leech reinforcement prevents breakdown of the leech from fluttering in strong wind conditions such as Omaezaki, the Gorge and Pozo.

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!
You make products that are easy to sell!
All the best,
