ALL TERRAIN FREEMOVE SAIL

We celebrate 15 years of Torro! No other GUNSAILS model has ever accomplished such a milestone. For 15 years, the Torro has mastered all disciplines, whether wave, freestyle or freeride. The All Terrain Freemove sail has always impressed with its versatility and its wide range of use. Due to these and many more reasons, the Torro represents the all-time favorite model of many GUNSAILS customers: a freemove sail that can simply provide more.

KEY FACTS:
> Best all-round characteristics from freeride, freestyle to wave
> Ideal combination of easy handling and performance
> 70% X-ply for durability, 3 mil square ply in top section for a smooth riding experience
> Size-specific design and batten concept from more handling in the smaller sizes to more freeride in the bigger sizes
> Reduced Boom Length: shorter boom for both compact handling and powerful acceleration
> Only RDM compatible (6.6 and 6.9 sqm also tolerate SDM)

As a result of continuous development by our R&D team, the 5-batten Torro convinces with its innovative appearance: robust X-Ply in combination with 3 mil Square-Ply in the top and 2 mil Kevlar Warp Laminate ensure an even lighter sail sensation as well as durability and stability. The integrated Kevlar Lines guarantee consistent sailing characteristics and constant stretch - regardless of the use. Thanks to their compact shape, the smaller sail sizes of the Torro have more bump & jump characteristics while being easy to jibe and well controllable even under heavy wind conditions.
Starting from 5.7 sqm, the profile of the Torro is designed in a more freeride oriented way, partly as a result of an integrated tube batten. Furthermore, this more direct profile generates more drive, speed and acceleration and the Loose Leech works even more dynamically, which shifts the range of use further up. Rule of thumb for the Torro: one trim setting - huge wind range without the need for annoying re-trimming. “The Torro is a must have in the Bump & Jump scene, it is the ultimate all-round sail […]” is what WIND Magazine stated in their conclusion.
We fully approve to this quote without exception and can’t wait to celebrate the Torro’s 30th anniversary.

SURF MAGAZIN 05-2022 // TORRO 5.7 2022

Test Report Windsurf Sail Surf Magazin, Windsurf Journal, Planchemag, Windsurf UK

For 15 years, the Torro has faithfully served its purpose and, as with the GA Hybrid, the larger sizes have been optimized more for planing power and speed, the smaller sizes more for handling and maneuvering. A trim mark in the top of the Torro also helps to find the right luff trim, the further adjustments to the respective wind range are pleasantly small on the Torro - the wind range in one trim is accordingly large. In the early planing phase, the sail stabilizes immediately despite the rather short boom, is well balanced in the hand - even less experienced surfers find it easy to quickly get into planing and achieve a good top speed with the sail. Even when powered up, the Torro convinces with its balance: The pressure point remains stable for a long time, shocks are pleasantly dampened. And how does it look in maneuvers? Here, too, there are no weaknesses, the GunSails lies easily in the hand, rotates nimbly through duckjibes, loops and glide maneuvers and is a lot of fun even for ambitious surfers.

surf verdict: The Torro has what it takes to be a mainstream sail - it works for speeding on fast freeride boards, but also as a playful maneuvering sail for use on maneuver-oriented freestyle waveboards. Only in real waves you have to make small concessions.

WIND MAG #441 // TORRO 5.7 2022

Test Report Windsurf Sail Surf Magazin, Windsurf Journal, Planchemag, Windsurf UK

DESIGN The profile of the Torro changes according to size with a design that varies from wave to freeride. In this compact all terrain design with a short boom, the Torro is equipped with a tube batten from size 5.7 rn2 onwards to further emphasise the freeride aspect and promote acceleration and stability. Designed for RDM.

ON THE WATER The 2022 version retains its outline while noticeably changing the distribution of X-Ply and Q-Ply fabrics. What we love about Gunsails is the simplicity of the trim. Follow the instructions, tension the sail to the guide mark, and you're ready to head out with an impeccably balanced rig. Ashore, the Gunsails shows a loose leech, tension on the boom and battens that are close to the mast axis. Once blown up, the Torro shows an elongated belly with a forward pressure point. Planing is progressive, followed by decent acceleration. The comparatively short boom for this range makes for easy handling. The profile is stable, not as rigid as most locked-in models and offers the desired freedom to play with the rail in turns. This playful motor is not at all bulky when you come to ride the waves or throw yourself into jumps. The 5.7 is the linchpin in this wide range and although it comes with a tube batten, it retains its playful side. The Gunsails is at home in all freewave areas, but can also be rigged on a freeride, freewave or voluminous waveboard.

CONCLUSION The Torro is tailor-made for the typical funboarder who wants to have fun with a single sail in all conditions as long as the wind gauges are spinning. Easy to trim, easy to sail and most importantly easy to have fun with, whether you want to compete, jump or just freestyle. Even though some brands are leaning slightly towards a more one-dimensional 5.7, the Torro remains 100% versatile.
