LOFTSAILS 2017 AIRSCAPE
DEDICATED FREESTYLE SAIL

Progressive
Freestyle

Sizes: 4.0 4.4 4.8 5.2

An out-and-out no-compromise, dedicated freestyle sail that’s agile, quick and reactive. The smooth-handling, ultra-light Loftsails Airscape has explosive power, wide wind range and reliable stability in an easy ducking, perfect-to-pop package. The low-end drive is superb thanks to soft forward profile that tames gusty wind with outstanding behavior when overpowered.

Loftsails’ core test team, in their spiritual home of Tarifa – known for challenging freestyle conditions – specified a higher clew and slightly shorter boom for the 2017 edition and signed off on the superior new 3.5-mm. biax cloth that clearly boosted the foils integrity in the full spectrum of wind and water conditions. If you’re hunting for a featherweight, ultra responsive and rapidly accelerating rig that goes neutral for the most acrobatic freestyle windsurfing moves then we recommend the Loftsails Airscape for you.

Pro Tips

  • Airscape
    The new 2017 Airscape has some great improvements with a better foot cutout line for easily ducking the sail. The boom's also a bit higher position for better power with a clean outline, the sail feels super, super light and very steady when doing my moves. I also love using the AirScape for foiling when the wind is very light. When rigging the Airscape it's important to tune it correctly depending your level. If your all about doing the new moves and pops, it is better to rig with less downhaul to have more power in the sail without releasing much wind - if you're mixing old-skool moves up with some slides and power moves, then you can add some more downhaul depending on the wind strength.

FAQ

Will older versions of Loftsails masts be compatible with newer models of Loftsails sails - and vice versa?

Loftsails IMCS mast bend-curve specs have been consistently produced across the range since 2000. The current production technique and component materials have remained unchanged since 2007, so all Loftsails masts and sails produced since then are fully compatible.
