The Transwave is a pureblooded power wave sail which allows you to have fun even in bump & jump conditions or on choppy water. Its drive also makes it the ideal sail for meter-high jumps. Compared to Blow and Peak the Transwave has a deeper profile and almost no OFF. Ideal for surfers who love powerful wave riding or even for heavy weight guys. Especially in light wind and onshore conditions and with powerless waves the Transwave goes strong and shows his full potential. On flat water the XXL Power of the Transwave appears almost like a Freeride sail.
Due to the Dacron luff panel, the power ON is never brutal but well dosed. That panel also acts like a shock absorber when speeding over choppy water.

Image

FAST RIGGING EASY DOING

F.R.E.D. will help you to fi nd the optimal luff trim for your sail. The mark is found in the upper sail window and serves as an orientation point to create the perfect luff tension (loose leech).

Image

REDUCED BOOM LENGTH

The Reduced Boom Length design shortens the boom length. The handling is much easier and feels more compact. The sail control is signifi cantly improved. A shorter boom is generally stiffer and will assist in maintaining the sail stability and profile.

Image

TOP GUARD

The large reinforcement at the sail top avoids abrasion and wearing out whilst rigging.


Image

VARIO TOP

The top opening is enlarged for an easier mast insertion. The adjustment buckle is placed behind the mast; unnecessary webbing can be stowed in the top opening.

Image

MINI BATTENS

Lightweight mini battens take control of the leech while twisting and avoid detrimental leech fl utter. In this way, the window fabrics are spared and the longevity of the sail is predefined.

Image

BATTEN GUARD

PVC tabs on the upper batten pockets prevent wearing out and abrasion whilst rigging.

Image

INTERNAL TRIM BATTEN

The Internal Trim Batten system is completely integrated into the batten pocket and the battens can stay tensioned in the sail. The profi led end piece offers additional protection against abrasion.

Image

POCKET GUARD

A PVC braid, sewed on the bottom batten pocket, protects your sail from abrasion while uphauling and waterstarting.

Image

OFFSET CLEW

The Wave sails are equipped with 2 clew eyelets which are set asymmetrically for individual tuning.
▲ Upper eyelet for more power
▲ Lower eyelet for more control

Image

BOOM SETTING

The boom length is printed beside the clew.

Image

BOOM POSITION CONTROL

The printed height scale at the boom opening helps you to easily remember your personal boom position. 

Image

SLEEVE VOLUMER

The Gun Sails logo that is sewn on the sleeve keeps it open at the boom opening area like a clip and thus mast insertion is much easier.

Image

MAST FOOT PROTECTOR

The large mast foot protector can be pulled back whilst rigging. The loop eases the initial pulling down of the sail. The uphaul can be comfortably inserted through an opening in the protector.

Image

FOOT GUARD

All seams in the significantly stressed foot area are protected by Dacron coverings. A PVC edging from foot to the first batten protects the leech edge against your board’s nonslip coating.

Image

COMFORT PULLEY

The integrated triple pulley has large easy turning stainless brass rolls which greatly reduce the effort required for sail trimming. Also, if you prefer, the rolls are removable to allow the use of standard downhaul pulley hooks.

Image

MESH POCKET

On the inside of the protector you will find a closable mesh pocket which can hold e.g. your downhaul surplus.

Image

STRAP ON

For very easy packing away and storage: Just roll the sail up and fix the elastic retainer.

PLANCHEMAG SPECIAL TESTS 2017 / TRANSWAVE 5.3 2017

Image

EXCELLENT FOR SURFING

The most convex of the wave sails in this test with a large leech opening at the head, the Transwave 5.3 was tested this year with a 4m mast. It's made of reinforced monofilm with the weave more widely spaced in the window section and a mast panel made of Dacron.

ON THE WATER: The Transwave has a deep and supple profile and has become a benchmark sail thank to its unlimited power. It tugs hard on the hand before taking off for early planing in light conditions, when there is current on the spot or onshore: more comfortable than average in the chop. It is aimed primarily at those that are in shape, powerful riders that like to keep on planing and change direction quickly on the spot. It moves upwind easily. This relatively advanced XXL power will help to prevent you being overwhelmed on the back hand in strong winds, but be aware that it will tire out the lighter and average weight riders quickly. Perfect for getting up to speed in waves that lack power, the Transwave generates maximum speed in the preparation for the jump. It has the advantage that it can be used in very light winds, with wide boards that need a good push to start planing without becoming overpowered. For pure surfing, it remains more physically demanding than many five batten rivals for the average body weight. So, the Transwave is better suited to beefy builds that will enjoy its lightness of touch under the back hand and good manoeuvrability in the surf.

SUMMARY: A reference board for the heavier rider and those looking for maximum juice and power in the waves, while carrying the smallest possible surface area. Its very stable behaviour means it is very efficient in messy conditions but also for executing Bump & Jump.

+: Price, XXL power, stable profile, good performance, for heavy riders, discret back hand.
- : A little heavier than the average, more cumbersome for light riders.
