Great idea, I hope it takes off.

Still the issue of traveling with a waveboard. Seen good concepts for freeride and SUP boards that are a mix of inflatable and epoxy, just waiting for the same in a good waveboard design.

Makes packing the car easier and leaving room for all the rest of the family.

I saw John skye with this last August in Tenerife. This was all he was using for wave sailing and had his full quiver in the one bag. Looks like he goes well on it! He reckons its awesome and feels very close to his normal wave gear! The gear feels a bit heavy to me, but maybe everything does when you've been using severne Would be good combined with an inflatable SUP or one of those inflatable free ride boards for easy travel and storage.

Even better would be the availability of sail sizes between the already 4.6 and 5.3
Imaging having a 4.2, 5.0 and 5.7 quiver

It may be a great concept that hasn't been asked for. Create a new market. North made a 3 piece mast , that broke.
This is has 5 pieces, that maybe all aren't used in smaller sails. The sail looks like a Naish Chopper , the twin batten arrangement has some look to the HSM KSSpiders, none of which is bad.

The pack that it comes in is pretty big, depending on what other luggage is involved it looks oversize to me, so could be subject to oversize charge, and or weight.

I reckon its to go along with the inflatable boards, and put inside a ultra compact car.

I would love to use just the sails .... travel with the 4.0 / 4.6 / 5.2 ... and rig them on 2 piece standard masts ... So potentially - boardbag with a mast(s) & enigma boom (easily under 20kg ) ... and couple of sails in a SUITCASE with boomend (kick the wifes clothes out :-) )... makes the difference alot of time boarding between cold sweats , and relaxed knowing you shouldnt get stung ...

I think the sails would be as good as anything ... rigged on their own ... and normal mast / boom
