NORTH KITEBOARDING the world's largest kite brand and NORTHSAILS Windsurf Riggs market leaders have joined forces to develop the most innovative rig ever. The result - the first inflatable surf sail - is the best of both worlds: incredibly low weight and packing dimensions achieved with kite technology combined with the attractiveness and safety of a windsurf rig. The iRIG makes learning to windsurf a piece of cake, as the inflatable sail is a whopping 70% lighter than a conventional windsurf rig. A heavy traditional rig (if not constantly kept in its balanced position) though generates a lot of leverage which literally lifts or pushes the rider out of position ending up in the water.
And even the biggest board won’t be able to avoid that. So the only solution to an instant learning success without falling into the water is a stable board in combination with the unbeatable low weight of the iRIG.On top the feather-light weight and the ability to float onto the water make starting a piece of case as you can literally lift the iRIG out of the water with just two fingers.
Since the iRIG is not only ultra light but also comes without any hard materials, the risk of injury is reduced dramatically. As well you don’t have to fear drifting off wind anymore. Since the whole rig floats on the water without any additional water resistance even paddling back home means no extra effort.
