Is North Sails Curve a good sail choice for me?

Posted by Inge 
Hello!

My used 6,5 sail got a big hole in it after my last ride....

I must therefore get me a new one.

Do you think that a North Sails Curve 6,4 is a good choice for me?

I started windsurf for about three years ago at the age of 40, my weight is 95 kg and I have got a RRD Evolution 360 155 litres (until I get better - then I might buy me a more advanced board).

Or is it better to get a North Sails Natural 6,6 instead?

What is positive and negative about thos two sails?

Hope to get some response before I decide what to do. Hopefully there is someone who has experience of those two sails and can give me some good advice.

Thanks in advance.

I think that no matter wjat You go for it will do the work for You.

They're both freeride sails, both are simply constructed and offer similar performance.

Hello Inge,

there are some differences between the two, looking at the text on the north sails website. I think the Natural is a (lot) better sail than the curve. Features a stronger construction, has seen 5+ years of refining/design improvements. It also should be more powerful than the Curve, early planing and freeride/speed. The curve is more a lightweight sail for light persons in my opinion. Hope this helps,

kind regards
Thank you for your advice!

I finally decided for a new 2011 North Sails Natural 6,6 which I bought today for 4 000 swedish crown (about 400 Euro).

Now I really hope that I made the right choice and that I don't brake this sail for many, many years to come.
