Monty Spindler gave the 4-batten Loftsails Wavescape an entire redesign for 2017.

Based on the amazing ‘breathing’ shape parameters perfected in the new Purelip, this dynamic foil delivers extremely compact, radical handling. The bottom batten is now repositioned under the boom for a more vigorous sensation with the leech freed up to react and adapt in moves, while the foot profile is steady and reliable and retains drive for the most radical turns.

The aspect ratio is slightly reduced overall for added throwaboutability, all with the familiar light, direct, explosive feel and early-planing benefits that magazine testers worldwide loved so much. Naturally Loftsails have maintained their standards of total x-ply construction that give the green light to push your level with confidence in their absolute durability.

Pro Tips

  • WAVESCAPE
    "If the conditions are super light, rig with less downhaul for extra power, earlier planing and nice power for surfing onshore waves. Trim with an extra 2-cm. of extension for a nice open leech and added control when the wind picks up"

    I LOVE the instant response of the 2017 WaveScape to my body movement when carving. I hardly feel the sail in my hands, but still have such amazing power to accelerate threw maneuvers. I like to rig the WaveScape by adjusting the downhaul depending on wind strength and don't use so much outhaul so I keep a nice amount of shape and some power

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 compatible.
