CONTROL WAVE 4 BATTEN
The Guru X is Keith Teboul’s pride and joy. Originally named after him, the 2023 Guru X is the result of a fresh collaboration between Keith, Levi Siver and Jason Diffin. Their quest for a soft, comfortable, power delivery, found in the Guru X, has been engineered over the last decade (or two) to perfection. The Guru X’s extreme durability is almost too much to believe when you think of all the other qualities the sail already possesses.
Francisco Goya claims this as his personal favorite in Maui’s wave conditions. Makes sense, because that’s where the design was born and established many years ago. Continuing its development around the world, from the high winds of The Gorge to Pozo have tuned smaller sizes to work as magnificent as the rest of the line.
The Guru X Pro offers a huge rigging range. With its soft power delivery and smooth progressive twist, you can rig this sail very full and still feel comfortably in control. Rigging the sail flatter is possible for a more neutral handling feel in higher wind and maneuver-oriented conditions.
The Guru X’s secret ingredient to smooth power delivery. The PVC window softens the power transfer from rig to rider. Doing so improves rider confidence, high-wind comfort, and control in any water condition.
The Guru X’s soft power delivery extends sessions. Less muscling, less anxiousness, less fatigue — all of it leads to more water time, fun and progression. The Guru X promotes a relaxed grip in radical conditions.
A high and a low boom attachment ring at the clew enhance sail range. Opt for the high ring to tighten the sail’s leech for more power. The lower ring setting encourages leech twist to improve control.
