Freewave boards are amongst the best selling on the market. The SUPER SESSION has been developed specifically for this category. It combines easy handling with a surprisingly immediate riding feel, giving the rider absolute control and confidence in all situations. With the SUPER SESSION, even the more brutal wind and wave conditions can be handled with confidence. Freewave and Bump&Jump have everything that makes windsurfing so fascinating. This explains why this class is so popular. SUPER SESSION is the perfect sail for this, covering the wide range between flat water to waves. A power wave design with planing potential, speed and outstanding control. Rapid strokes, smooth jumps and full-throttle turns flow seamlessly into one another, whetting the rider’s appetite for endless SUPER SESSIONs. Acceleration, draft position stability and handling are what sets the balanced, five-batten design from the competition. Because the draft position is further forward, the riding feel is more responsive and the profile remains stable even when the wind picks up. For even more control, the sizes 5.6 and up now feature more pronounced loose leech increasing the control in overpowered conditions. This is supported by the HOLLOW LOWER LEECH, preventing leech flutter and guaranteeing confident rig control. All this makes the SUPER SESSION a versatile, competitive Bump&Jump craft, especially under high winds and choppy conditions. All SUPER SESSIONs are also available in the monofilm-free HD design. However, the extremely hard wearing mix of materials has its price, which we will of course make clear.

NEED TO KNOW

MAST COMPATABILITY

At Duotone we use a Medium Constant Curve for our masts (our bend percentages range between 61-63 bottom and 75-77 top depending on model and length). As this curve sits right in the middle within Constant Curve masts it offers the biggest compatibility of any bend curve. This makes our masts and sails the most compatible on the market.

Here is how good other brand masts work with our sails and vice versa:

  1. Challenger Sails, Ezzy, GA (2017 on), Goya, Gun Sails, Hot Sails, KA Sails, Loft Sails, Naish Sails, RRD, S2Maui, Sailloft, Sailworks, Severne (2014 on): 80-90% (depending on model and size)
     
  2. NeilPryde, Point7, Simmer Style: 70-80% (depending on model and size)
     
  3. Avanti, Gaastra (until 2016), Maui Sails, Severne (until 2013), Vandal: not compatible

QUIVER COMPATABILITY

Most customers change their individual sail and mast sizes according to demand and therefore own a quiver with different brands. When building up your sail quiver, you should try to combine sails that have a similar feel and behavior. The one decisive factor defining how similar or different one sail feels/behaves to another is the position of the draft, in both levels, vertical (high><low) and horizontal (forward><back). 

  • Freeride and Slalom sails from the different brands nowadays feel quite similar since at least the horizontal draft position is forward oriented on nearly every sail.
  • The biggest difference though you find with Wave sails.

Basically there are 2 different kind of wave sails:

  1. Draft further back (= balanced pull on both hands) and low (to keep the sail controllable). These sails are the ideal companion for multi-fin boards. Since the balanced pull on both hands makes them super neutral in your hands they shine especially in real down the line conditions. On the other hand they feel very different to modern Freeride and Slalom sails (which are very forward pulling). So if you are using such draft back/low Wave sails only very occasionally as your high wind flat water sail you might be better off with the second type of wave sails. 
     
  2. Draft forward and up (to still generate enough low end power): these sails work on both single- and multi-fin boards. With the forward pulling feeling they are more exiting/direct to sail and have a very similar feeling to modern Freeride and Slalom sails. In addition they are the ideal choice for side-onshore jumping conditions as the higher and forward oriented draft helps/accelerates rotations in the air (especially forward loops).

So when mixing your quiver with different sails/brands you should try to combine sails which have a similar draft position and thus feeling and behavior.

Just follow these guidelines:

  1. You are mainly sailing on flat water. Try to combine your Freeride or Slalom sails with a draft forward/up wave sail. Typical examples are: Duotone Super Session / NP Zone / NP Combat / NP Atlas / Severne Blade / Simmer Icon
  2. You are looking for a wave sail which is super neutral for down the line riding. Try to get some of these: Duotone Super Hero / GA IQ / Goya Banzai / Goya Fringe / Simmer Tricera / Simmer Blacktip
     
  3. Try to avoid combining draft forward/up- with draft back/low sails in your quiver as these feel and behave extremely different.
