Freeride is one of the most popular windsurfing disciplined and gathers a huge number of fans. A dedicated freeride enthusiast needs a reliable sail which can handle various wind and wave conditions with ease. And one of the most versatile freeride sails available today is the Gaastra Pilot. The Pilot blends power and control in a unique way and suits beginner and intermediate riders alike.

It is designed using a refined shape which allows the rider to power it up easily in light winds and experience a smooth and fast glide. At the same time the sail is stable and easy to handle if the wind picks up. The sail is built using a no cam design and a four or five battens skeleton, depending on size. This structure makes it very light and significantly improves stability. It allows it to generate a balanced power delivery and keeps the rider in control at all times. It is the perfect tool to perform your first waterstart or jibe and it can get you planning fast and easy. It is very easy to rig and once it is set on the water it feels light and agile. The sail is perfect for beginners, but it can keep up with them as they progress and need more power to perform new tricks.

The Gaastra Pilot is designed using high quality Clear-X and Teijin fabrics and reinforced in critical areas. It is a very durable and light sail and it also has a decent price.

Race performance in a no cam package. The Pilot is fast and stable. Kinda works like the Matrix, but it is lighter and faster. It runs great in high and light winds.
