The Taka is designed for hardcore wave sailors: those of us who live with sandy car seats, religious devotion to forecasts, and dreams of dropping into breaking waves.
We need a sail that is effortlessly maneuverable while wave riding but still stable and powerful in a straight line. We need a sail that will withstand the bomb set wave as it breaks on our head. We need a sail that we can trust not to break, especially when the conditions are critical. We need a sail built 100% for waves with no compromise in performance or durability. We, dedicated wave sailors ourselves, know these challenges—and so we make the Taka. This is the sail we choose for easy backloops, wave 360’s, and double forwards.
Performance is not just about easy tricks, so we tweak the Taka to accelerate early and have a massive low-end wind range. Many wave sessions require a sail that can adapt to dropping winds—we all know that the best wave sessions are the ones when the wind drops and everyone else has come in.
Wave sailing is our heritage, and the Taka is the expression of our passion, built for everyone that loves the feeling of bottom turning and flying above the lip’s spray.
Each Elite is rigged, calibrated, and inspected in our factory before going out the door to sailors all over the world.
We treasure the trust you place in us, and in return we give you the Elite.
