The BLAST is the perfect partner for freeride bliss – doing everything you ask of it and more! Whether you are just getting comfortable in the footstraps, taking your first planing jibes or want to be the fastest freerace guy at your spot – the adaptability and tunability of the BLAST makes it truly your ultimate freeride/freerace board.

EAGLE or BLAST - which one is the right freeride board for you?

Where you come from >< Where it will take you

1) EAGLE: IT’S ALL ABOUT PLANING

  • Where you come from: you had your first Windsurfing experience and are capable of staying upwind. There is no other board which will help you to experience the gliding/planing sensation in such a short time than the EAGLE. 
  • Where it will take you: besides getting planing, jibing is the second strength of the EAGLE. But it’s not just made for learning to (power)jibe but will even accompany you up to freerace blasting and laydown jibing 

2) BLAST: MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE WITH MINIMUM EFFORT

  • Where you come from: you are comfortable of sailing in the foot straps then the BLAST is your performance machine. 
  • Where it will take you: the BLAST will instantly make you a faster sailor. Since it’s also very easy to jibe it will be your partner from your first power jibes up to pro level laydown race jibes. Partnered with a high performance fin and a freerace sail you might even become the fastest guy at your spot with the BLAST, whilst still maintaining the comfort of a freeride board.


When designing the BLAST, the key concept was to make a board with maximum performance, yet minimal effort that maintains control over the widest possible wind range. But how could we achieve a board that works in such a wide range of conditions, with such a broad range of user levels?

Firstly, the BLAST follows the same VOLUME YET CONTROL CONCEPT like the EAGLE. This means you can easily choose a 10 liter bigger board compared to other brands without losing any control in overpowered conditions. By gaining some more liters, the board feels more stable underfoot in non-planing conditions, and also gets planing sooner than boards with less liters without compromising the high-end performance and control. 

Additionally, due to the thin rails, the BLAST can be gybed aggressively in experienced hands but also feels easy and smooth for intermediate riders due to the wide tail. This allows you a steady progression through all levels of the jibing process, without ever “out-growing” the board. 

And finally, the racier/boxier rails and a further outboard strap position allow the rider to push harder to let the board fly over the fin for increased top speed. The tail cutouts further reduce the drag when going full speed to give you the edge over your friends.

Yet same as with our full-on racing FALCON_FIN boards maximum control and predictable behaviour over a maximum wind-range are also the key assets of the BLAST. 


With this wide range of features, the BLAST has been expertly crafted to provide endless hours of performance freeride><freerace fun and accompany you on your windsurfing journey to become a faster sailor.


The BLAST is available in two constructions: our PREMIUM SLS TECHNOLOGY or the standard EPOXY SANDWICH TECHNOLOGY.

EPOXY SANDWICH TECHNOLOGY

Durable budget friendly sandwich construction for everyday use. Our exclusive superlight EPS core gets covered with a 70% wood sandwich. Additional glass reinforcement patches around the critical impact zones ensure structural integrity. A thick, durable outer skin gives the hull maximum strength, as well as making it ding and impact resistant. 

PREMIUM SANDWICH TECHNOLOGY

The PREMIUM SANDWICH TECHNOLOGY consists of 50 individual parts and components and is our lightest semi custom technology. Achieved through lighter raw materials and a higher carbon content and a sophisticated layup with a much higher amount of load spot specific patches, stringers and reinforcements. Important these weight savings do not go to cost of durability. This is why as the first production brand we offer a 1 YEAR UNLIMITED WARRANTY on these boards when registered online (dents excluded).

Deck Shape

Flatter deck shape for comfortable stance and maximum control during jibes.

Outline

Amazing acceleration from the low drag characteristics of the parallel rails.

RANGE SPECIFIC ASPECT RATIO (length vs. width) 

  • The smaller the board the higher the aspect ratio >> maximum control plus reduced wetted surface for v-max
  • The bigger the board the lower the aspect ratio >> maximum acceleration already at lower speeds


Rail Shape

Boxier medium-radius rails in the center to ensure maximum acceleration and planing power. Thinner rails towards the tail to help jibing or jibe even more aggressively in experienced hands.

Duotone Premium Strap incl. multi-plugs

High quality closed cell neoprene for maximum longevity. Only black Lycra coating guarantees maximum comfort as well as maximum durability. The strap features measurement markings to allow you to quickly set up and replicate your individual size.

DUO RIDING STYLE PLUGS:

  • Inboard position for improved manoeuvrability and a more relaxed riding style
  • Outboard position for a more performance oriented riding style


Duotone Pro Pads

8-10mm thick duo density EVA (depending on the board type) provides best dampening comfort and control. The heat pressed diamond grooving pattern protects the EVA against abrasion and provides an extraordinary grip level. We only select EVA colours which don't look dirty after use and will also resist fading after hours in the sun.

Rocker Line

Rocker lines developed over decades deliver top speeds in all conditions and ensure maximum control. Slightly flatter rocker line than pure (Free)race boards for improved low end power.

Bottom Shape

Most sophisticated bottom shape: double concave in front to double concave Vee in the middle into Vee towards the tail to work in conjunction with the parallel outline. Ideal compromise between performance, manoeuvrability and control.

TAIL CUT-OUTS to reduce the wetted surface: improved top speed, acceleration and a smooth ride even in very choppy conditions.

YOUR PERFECT SAIL MATCH

Quote Daniel Aeberli - Product Manager Boards

»THE BLAST SURPRISES ME EACH AND EVERY TIME: WHEN YOU ARE CAPABLE OF SAILING IN THE STRAPS AND BEING FAST IS YOUR TOP PRIORITY THE BLAST MIGHT BE THE LAST BOARD YOU'LL NEED. BECAUSE THE RANGE OF USE IS JUST INSANE: THE BLAST IS EXTREMELY CONTROLLABLE WHICH IMMEDIATELY MAKES YOU A FASTER SAILOR. ALSO, JIBING IS SUPER EFFORTLESS, WHICH HELPS BOTH JIBE BEGINNERS AND ADVANCED RACE JIBERS TO INCREASE THEIR SUCCESS RATE. AND FINALLY PARTNERED WITH A HIGH PERFORMANCE FIN THERE IS NEARLY NO LIMIT TO THE SPEED POTENTIAL OF THE BLAST.«
