OUR MISSION WAS CLEAR
We have developed a new profile range using advanced CFD software developed in-house, to specifically match the conditions experienced by windsurfers, without any drag penalty over a conventional design.
See the following graph (see gallery) which compares standard foil designs with the Tribal design.
A clear example of this is in the direction the industry has taken with regard to large area speed fins. This big area is a necessity with the profiles they used. Our designs have a smaller area for the same length because we get more lift capability in that area, and lower drag at the highest speeds, whilst maintaining even greater stability.
This is really a breakthrough in designing profiles specifically for windsurfing needs. The design has been proven in testing over several years, before we introduced it into the Tribal line.
