With the Delta wing series we have introduced a completely new category of fins. Inspired by the aeronautic Delta wings, Rick has transferred the special aerodynamic features to windsurfing applications:
– very short wing span combined with a large area
– very thin and stiff profiles
– high rake of 55 degrees
– additional lift due to leading edge vortex at high angles of attack
All these features make the Delta fins the ultimate tool for shallow spots, extremely weedy conditions and speed sailing. Compared to a straight freeride or slalom fin, the fin length can almost be halved. Combined with the high rake, the danger of injury by touching ground is greatly reduced. Speed sailors can finally use the flat conditions of tidal waters for even higher speeds.
Our Delta wings are fast, easy to control, have great upwind abilities and jibe great in wide and medium arcs.
