Hitting the waves at high speed to pull out new school aerial wave moves, whether you are jumping or going for aerials. The right mix between drive on the bottom turn, but at the same time a neutral on/off performance going for the cut back. Our Point-7 Black Team together with Josep Pons have worked on the development over the year to prove what The SALT PRO can do. It's not only going to podiums, but it's about being the most radical out there in any situation and conditions. With this sail we want to make sure that you feel confident in trying anything out! Scoring quality points on the water will make you stand out from the rest.

THE TESTS ON MAGAZINES SAY
With masses of useable power and a fun active nature, the efficient and dynamic on/off profile is designed to be radical on the wave and allowing the enterprising sailor to get away with the smallest sail possible. It?s a versatile wave sail which can be used in all conditions by tightening or loosening the clew. Fast, agile and supremely comfortable to use, the Salt Pro?s soft delivery style makes its spirited rearward rider-focussed power both useable and stable across a far-reaching tuneable range. A manoeuvre machine. All this at an amazing price!
The Salt is the Point-7 all-out performance orientated four batten wave sail. Fast riding on the waves, quick to respond in new school wave sailing moves, and ultra-light in your hands. A pure new school wave sail. Adjust the back-hand power, and it's ready to offer precision, according to the wind strength, the board we use, and what we want to do. We can flatten the profile in Side-Shore conditions to neutralize the profile of the sail in high speed surf, which can give more power in the back hand to get more support in on shore conditions, or when you want quick acceleration to hit the lips of the waves. It's fast, it's agile, it's up to you to let the next move be or dream, or to make it happen. The Salt is ready to stand out!
ON THE WATER
The Salt translates to plenty of useable bottom end grunt, the large luff panel expanding to significantly increase the depth of the draft. The delivery is soft and forgiving, and comes through both hands, the centre of effort focussed around the rider. Used in properly powered conditions, this transforms into a power-hungry animal, locked in and dancing over the water as it advances in every gust. It moves smoothly around the rider thanks to the softness in the luff panel, enabling to keep the pedal down in attack mode, even in the most uninviting conditions. With speed comes light handling, which combined with the Salt?s on-off capacity when eased out, makes it a formidable weapon on the wave and in transition.
The Dacron has been reworked on each size to calibrate the skin tension of the sail for the different conditions it would be used in. Making the bigger sizes more reactive and the smaller one more comfortable. More upwind performance has been given to the bigger sizes, to get back to upwind in less time to the lineup.
The sail that has brought Ricardo Campello back on to the podium on PWA from 2015 to now. The sail that made Ricardo claim his first wave event victory at the PWA in La Torche, winner of the single elimination in Sylt 2018, and become World Vice Champion 2018 on the Salt Pro zero19
