MANIC

HARDCORE WAVE

The Manic’s inimitable combination of controllability, power and handling will fascinate you both when blasting down the line in side-off conditions and during onshore sessions in gusty winds and small waves.

Planing performance and responsive handling are guaranteed throughout the whole spectrum with the bigger sizes providing increased power in light winds and the small sizes maximizing control in stormy weather.

The newly introduced one-piece mast sleeve enhances the Manic’s lightness and optimizes stretch for a precise shape and flex characteristics.

Refined positioning of the four battens in all sizes leads to an advanced combination of profile stability and soft on-off handling during wave rides.

The new Manic feels more neutral than ever before, but still provides great power and control for wave windsurfing in all conditions.

SAIL FEATURES

Our goal is to provide every surfer with the perfect sail for his or her demands, which is why we implement the right materials and features for each application area. Depending on the sail model we use the suitable combination of different materials of highest quality to achieve the perfect mix of lightness, durability, power and handling. Quality, advanced technology and innovation means everything to us and each step in the development process is extensively planned to offer unique windsurfing performance.

ONE-PIECE MAST SLEEVE

The one-piece mast sleeve makes the Manic lighter and improves stretch characteristics.

CARBON RADIAL LOAD TAPES

Carbon tapes spread from the clew across the center of the sail for a stable profile.

EXTRA LIGHT AND DURABLE 2-PLY

1.75 mil 2-Ply in the center and 2.5 mil at the leech provide perfect combination of lightness and durability.

4 BATTENS ON ALL SIZES

Lightness paired with profile stability in all sizes.

CONTINUOUS LUFF PANELS

Two continuous luff panels ensure a strong and efficient load distribution.

COMPACT WINDOW DESIGN

A more compact sail window provides great visibility, while eliminating unnecessary seams and interferences with other materials.

INTEGRATED BATTEN TECHNOLOGY

All battens above the boom are integrated into the overlapping panels for maximized symmetry and stability.

X-PLY

The best in the business and the best for us. We have been working closely with Dimension Polyant to ensure we have the toughest sails on the market including our top of the line 4MIL X-Ply which is lighter and stronger than ever before.

Reinforcement Batten Pocket

Light and durable reinforced area, to help protect against all types of wear and tear!

Integrated Tensioner

Very light and durable for the perfect trim.

Double Seam

This heavy duty reinforcement area through the windows on the wave sails gives solid durability at these critical areas.

Vario Top

The GA Vario top will not slip. Designed for maximum performance the GA vario top is easy to use and strong enough for the PWA. With set and forget system that means you only have to adjust it once.

Vario Pocket

A simple pocket on the top of the luff sleeve allows to to store away any excess webbing from your Vario Strap. No more flapping Vario Tops in the GA Sails range.

Radial load tape

Comes on Manic, Manic HD, IQ and Hybrid. In addition to our radial panel layout, this reinforces the sail along the load lines whilst reducing the stretch of the material, allowing the sail to hold its shape longer when you get hit by stronger winds.

Rollup Leash

Quick, easy elasticated system that keeps sails roll up nice and tidy. Perfect when storage space is at a premium.

Vario Protection

This little add-on for the top cap on the Vario Tops protects the adjustable webbing from breaking down from wear and tear on rough ground.

Mast Sleeve Opening

The GA Silicon patch above the boom cutout opens the mast pocket just a little, allowing the rider to insert the mast with just one hand, without having to move up the luff.

Tack Fairing

A redesign that makes the fold flow much easier. It is clean and just how it needs to be: Perfection!

Downhaul Storage Pocket

Downhaul storage pocket – Our simple downhaul storage pocket makes rigging faster and easier.
