Unregistered The C4 is Demon Designs slalom/speed sail simon.
The VG5 is the full on raceboard sail, wins most of the time if racing is your thing

Roger Hi Crash,
Well, I used a 65 cm Deboichet Concept, a 40 cm Lessacher Duo Weed, and a 42 cm Tangent Dynamics Reaper Weed.
It was really neat to get planing so early on such a light rig.
Hope this helps,

Jean-Marc Check this out :

Looks like there is a dedicated Race-Board class sail in 9.5 sqm size available for 2008. I'm sure Rmi can tell us more about that.

Cheers !

The thing I already noticed was how light it feels in your hands...

Because my weight (+95kg) I will try it first on a 490cm 100% mast instead of the recommended 460cm mast.

"for king and country"

demon c-4??importing one from the UK to Canada would be cost prohibitive, did that with a used set of sailboat sails, cost me big time ,
but thanks

Unregistered If you want low end punch and tune-ability the Demon C4 does a great job. Ultra light weight too.

Cheers

I've used the same sail on the Apollo and managed to use the added low end power to get the Apollo going really early for a 7.5 m2.
They are making a 8.5 m2 for 2008.
Hope this helps,
THANKS roger, i am looking at possibly doing the longboard racing thing again after many years,
and the info is good.
