Cascade Sailboards Wave Series

Waveseries


The Cascade Wave Series is designed for the sailor who requires a high performance wave board for use in ocean surf or large swell bump and jump conditions; anyplace where a smooth, tight turning, or snappy board  is desired. The Wave series incorporates several design concepts to achieve it's top performance level. 1) A flat to V bottom with soft, tucked under rails forward allows the board a maximum amount of roll or looseness for quick, tight arcing turns. 2) Hard edge and low rails in the tail help the board track deeper and bite hard in the turn. 3) The wide point is pulled slightly back from center, mast track and foot straps are also positioned slightly back, the outline is widened in the tail and narrowed in the nose, overall thickness profile is also shifted back. The result of the 'back' movement in these shaping points tightens the pivot or swing weight of the board increasing the snap in the turn while at the same time decreasing the turn radius. 4) Increase in the nose rocker keeps the nose from pearling or digging in when sailing out through white water, or during off the lip reentry maneuvers.
