THE MOST USED SCHOOLING SAIL USED WORLD-WIDE
The current DRIVE CLOTH features an ultra-modern 2.5-batten design (3.0 m² and above) that offers excellent performance for a wide range of individuals. We worked closely with the most well-known surfing schools and associations, whose knowledge and experience were significant influences on the concept.
The DRIVE CLOTH is an easy planing sail that will accompany any beginner or dedicated improver for a very long time. It’s super easy to get out of the water and very easy to control on all courses as well as during manoeuvres. In sub planing conditions it really gives the rider something to hold on to, offering stability that will come in handy on choppy waters. Once planing, the sail stays very well balanced. The wind pressure can be gradually transformed into speed, so that the rider is always in full control.
With the use of Dacron and vinyl, the DRIVE CLOTH is virtually indestructible, making it ideal for use in windsurfing schools. Thanks to the elastic nature of the Dacron material and its unique shape, the DRIVE CLOTH loads up very gently and develops a full profile. As a result, it generates powerful propulsion and has excellent planing characteristics. Moreover, the draft position remains stable even when far into the planing range.

Improved sail control at higher winds. Designer Kai Hopf originally designed the TT TOP for the WARP. The reduced, concave shape improves tension conditions for a more effective, three-dimensional top twist. This means the top twists not only horizontally, but also vertically under strong winds. By completely neutralising gusts of wind, the rig is kept steady in the rider’s hands, and thus works in a much larger range of winds.
