Performance, speed, accuracy, power. The Gaastra Manic combines them all to offer windsurfers a unique sailing experience. The manic is extremely easy to set up and rig, and once on the water it proves to be highly responsive and has a great power boost. The power is well balanced and delivered, and the sail reached top speeds and accelerates fast in no time. The Dacron luff panel provides a smooth leech tension and combined with the overall flexibility offers nice turn speeds and increased handling and steering. The maneuverability is also increased by the use of a shorter boom. The foot batten profile is flattened to make the Manic feel comfortable and push forward the limits of speed. All in one, the Gaastra Manic is a great choice for wave sailing as well as for bump and jump moves. It features a no cam design and uses a Vario or fixed head, depending on the model size.

Smaller size versions have a four battens configuration, while larger ones use a five battens configuration for increased stability. The Gaastra Manic 2008 is available in 3.3 to 5.7 meters sizes and several color schemes.
