SPY

THE POWER FREESTYLE WAVE

If you’re looking for power, but power which can plane in the lightest conditions and at the same time challenge even the toughest situations, this is the sail for you.

 

DESIGNED FOR

If you’re looking for power, but power which can plane in the lightest conditions and at the same time challenge even the toughest situations, this is the sail for you. Power to either hit a lip, or a ramp. Blasting on bump and jump conditions. Built with quality materials for those who look for perfection in their gear. You won’t find anything else with more control, wide wind range, and power out there. Great for foiling.

THE TESTS ON MAGAZINES SAY

Well-made and eye catching, the Point 7 Spy is much more than its billing as a Power Freestyle-Wave sail would imply. Offering an abundance of power and practicality over a wide wind range, it is a true all-round contender and comes well recommended by us. Particularly in onshore conditions and small waves, to use the power of the sail in the surf and jumping. Really good in Bump and jump also. Punchy and precise, willing to fulfil several different roles and thriving when used by the adventurous and pro-active.

CHARACTER

A powerful masterpiece and a symbol of control. Using a rich forward positioned profile for great drive mixed with good skin tension, the SPY is a powerful yet extremely controllable sail which ensures you stay on top of things in the widest variety of conditions and range of winds. The leech falling away smoothly down to batten four, whereas both it and the bottom batten retain plenty of rotation around the mast. Up-to-date detailing, and the upward geometry of the battens themselves also give an idea of the sail’s intended performance credentials – even when wave sailing, slalom sailors don’t want to sail slow! High-cut foot and high clew eyelet positions give the sail a distinctly beefed-up wave specific appearance. Undoubtedly the right choice for many and most. Power is nothing without control!

ON THE WATER 

Spy is fast, efficiently translating the extra power from gusts into more speed. Whilst always balanced in the hands, as it gathers speed, the Spy feels lighter and lighter, helping to inspire the user to try new manoeuvres or drop into the next set of waves. The Spy generates a good deal of bottom end grunt. The centre of effort is located high and forward in the draft, its power amplified by the high position of the clew, offering the rider plenty of useable feedback. It is a real powerhouse of a sail, giving the heavier or taller rider the impetus to pump and release their board onto the plane early. It has an impressive all-round nature, happily fulfilling diverse roles, from high wind blasting engine, to marginal wind powerhouse for the opportunist. In transition the Spy retains its power and drive rather than going neutral in the hands, yet its stability is unwavering, allowing the rider to rely upon it and reposition at will, the battens rotating positively around the mast. A dependable power source with a wide tunable range. It may not go as neutral in transition as the Salt Pro, and nor is the power as progressive or forgiving, but its stability and appetite is never in question, and the more energy you put into the Point-7, the more performance it willingly returns.

FOR ZERO20

The leach has been reworked to be compatible with foiling, without losing it’s original powerful performance.

DEVELOPED AND DESIGNED BY

The Point-7 Black Team. A team of professional sailors and designers who have proved themselves by designing the winning sail for the World Champion in the PWA Slalom World Tour. It’s not just our wave sailors who have enjoyed testing this model, but a good part of the feedback to refine speed and power is also coming from the Slalom team.

DEVELOPMENT TARGET

Targeting an ideal blend of measured power and balanced handling. Assuring an efficient energy to the board, even with a shorter boom length, making it shorter than what you would normally expect on this sail size. Delivering power efficiently to the board, the Spy remains balanced in the hands with its short boom length making it feel smaller than its quoted area. From light wind wave sail, to high wind straight-line blaster; heavy weight’s power wave sails to intermediates tutor- the Spy displays the manners and practicality to cater for the demands of most. The key attribute is the Spy’s low focused power position, which provides constant usable power without pulling the rider on to their toes yet always helps to pin the board down in extreme conditions and retain control.

 

OUTLINE

Ensuring efficient power transfer to the board, even with a shorter boom length, whilst remaining balanced in the hands. This dependable control remains a feature of the Spy throughout its wind range, allowing it to adapt effortlessly to any number of roles.

BATTENS

5-batten construction, with important profile along the lower 3 battens to satisfy the stability and power in all conditions

CLEW AND EYELETS

Two eyelet positions.The lower eyelet to create more opening of the lower leach to increase control in stronger wind, and the higher eyelet to increase power and acceleration. We do advise the upper eyelet, unless you are a lightweight sailor.

 

LEECH, ROTATION AND PROFILE

a central profile with a thin leading edge.A great deal of shape locked low and forward in the draft, providing plenty of obvious bottom end power and drive. On its minimum setting, the pronounced profile is complimented with plenty of movement in its large Dacron luff panel and luff tube, its structure maintained by the bottom battens pushing forward to sit flush with the mast’s leading edge. Even on maximum setting the Spy displays plenty of shape, the bottom batten retaining plenty of rotation as the leech falls away significantly, to allow speed and fast release.

BODY MATERIAL

100% assembled with X-ply laminates, mixing the base with the 5 mil Anti UV-Black X-ply Laminate, the entire upper body with the 2.5 mil Anti UV-Black X-ply Laminate, and 5mil X-ply transparent window. X-ply batten pockets for lighter weight and improved reflex. All our Ply, X-ply and Scrims monofilm are produced in the Unites States.

RIGGING

The Spy is straightforward to rig, requiring an easy amount of force to counter its luff curve to set the rotation of the profile to obtain a slight loose leach which falls to the front point of the first top mini batten. Playing with the outhaul will boost up power or increase control but do give a good outhaul tension until you find your perfect performance. Tighten the bottom and top batten, but just remove wrinkles on the other battens without overtightening them. If the wind becomes increasingly severe, the Spy can be retuned with more tension, increasing the twist in the leech without losing much shape in the draft.

DEVELOPER COMMENT

“The plan was, having a dedicated wave sail to bring non-pro wave sailors to have an autopilot to go and hit that lip. Not only the power to have the right drive through a bottom turn, but allowing to go radical as being on a four batten sail. The comfort of the sail in rough conditions, the speed in the rotation for executing moves, is making this 5-batten wave sail become an amazing handling and powerful sail also for Bump and Jump and basic Freestyle moves. You ask, it delivers. "
