The beginner and intermediate windsurfers out there will love to hear that Gaastra has released the perfect sail for them. The 2008 Pilot is highly user friendly, simple to rig and set up, and once on the water, it delivers great performance. The rod battens design delivers maximum stability and makes the Pilot easy to handle in any wave or wind conditions. The sail’s tension and rigidity are increased with the use of a twin strip X-ply luff panel. Wearable parts are reinforced for a longer life cycle, but overall weight is kept low for better maneuverability and higher top speeds. Gaastra Pilot is great at wave and freestyle, due to the full profile combined with an enlarged boom. Nice low end power makes turning fast and accurate while tricks and jumps become easy and safe. The higher clew grommet offers a smooth leech tension significantly improve steering and response times.

To cover a larger wind range the Gaastra Pilot comes in 4.5 to 7.5 meter sizes. Depending on the size of the sail the construction is based on a four or five battens configuration and uses o fixed or a Vario head. The recommended mast for the Pilot is Gaastra 30.
