2018 Severne Freek

For 2018, my favorite sail still remains to be the Severne Freek! I've also joined the Ocean Air Sports team and we've got them in stock! The video below shows some nice features of the sail. What I personally like the most is it's absolutely top notch handling. The sail remains so balanced and comfortable even when I'm overpowered. Instant power up and depowering are possible without being pulled off balance. Of course for freestylers, we can really appreciate a sail that ducks easy. The 2017 and 2018 Freeks just land where ever you put them. This means you can count on the sail staying right where you let it go for the backwinded tricks and you can work on the actual trick instead of trying so hard to get the duck right. For non-freestylers.... people have told me how much they like not fighting with the rig on the jibes. When they flip the sail, on the jibe they are planing through more turns because the sail instantly powers back up after the sail flip and they stop falling off a plane because they don't need to wait for the sail to power up again on the new tack. EVERYONE will appreciate the lightness and smooth power of the sails. Through use of top grade materials and creative placement of reinforcements, the sails are extremely light and just as durable as ever. No-one will be disappointed with a Severne Freek!

Happy sailing and enjoy the clip!

  1. Hi Mike, I'm looking for the freek 4.4 and from the specs LUFF is 398 and recommended mast is 370 that seems weird to me (need a long extension!). Have you tried it with a 400 mast ? Thanks a lot!
