Pro tips

What do you like about the Purelip 2018?

My favorite sail for both waveriding and jumping. What I like the most of the Purelip is the big range it covers, thanks to the outhaul and downhaul rigging options. When changing the trimming it literally feels like a smaller or bigger sail size. I’m lightweight and I find the Purelip 2018 the perfect classic wave sail. I use it in every conditions because of my lightweight. For a heavier rider, the choice between Purelip and Wavescape (the 4 batten sail) must be based on the spots and usual sailing conditions. For example, for off / side off / side winds the Wavescape is the perfect sail, but if you need power to pass the shorebreak with side on winds, the Purelip might be the better option.

What do you like about the Purelip 2018?

Perfect balance between control and power to manage the most difficult conditions that you can sail in your home spot. The Purelip 2018 is my favorite sail to ride in the most powerful waves with maximum control, carving and flying high in my jumps in total confidence with the sail, the perfect partner to have fun every session along the years.

Frequently
asked questions?

I can see minor colour inconsistancy in the coloured monofilm material, is this a quality problem?

Loftsails using high quality Dimension Polyant films considered as a leading film manufacturer. The BI-PLY colored monofilm are two films laminated together. During production there is a large temperature difference between the two films at the lamination point. This causes the top film (film with color adhesive) to slightly shrink and the bottom film does not shrink at the same rate. This can cause "a slight minimal wave or impression" in the fabric. There is no concern on laminate quality.

What does 1 Year Unconditional + 1 Year Conditional warranty cover?

Warranty is valid 2 years after date of purchase. When making a warranty claim in the first year the product is unconditionally warranted. When making a warranty claim in the 2nd year the product must have clearly suffered from a manufacturer error.

When unrolling my sail some battens are looking pre-curved?

All windsurfing sails with battens experience batten bending when rolling for transport. The battens will bend because of the curves cut into the sail to produce profile. Loftsails are rolled right side up, this flexes the battens as if the sail is on starboard tack. Battens are made from polyester, carbon and resin. They remember their being curved, which gives the sail a pre-disposition to be on starboard tack. This results in the sail having a preference to be on starboard tack. This asymmetric character is normally not an issue. Rolling the sail port side up will tend to bend the battens in the opposite direction which can minimize this asymmetric character.

Why are there small wrinkels visible in the footpanel of my sail?

Monty comments: Wrinkles in the foot panel are common to my designs! There is always alot of profile worked into the bottom of the vertical seam, I have tried to remove the wrinkles from the lower panel but this results in flatter shapes that do improve performance. Many of our sails do not show such foot panel wrinkles, however unfortunately one could say they are typical of my designs.
