HAKA ST

Haka ST_LR

The Haka ST is replacing the Haka. The Haka ST is probably Witchcraft´s most allround wave board. Faster and looser than the Haka, the Haka ST is the best choice for sailors who both sail on and side shore conditions. The bottom shape of the Haka ST was also updated, it now has more V in the nose going into double concave into double concave V in the tail.  The V breaks the chop and the double concave gives grip. The tail was cut off some 2 cm, making the straps and fins sit further back on the board, making it faster and looser. Combined with the rounder rails, a faster rocker and slightly narrower outline makes that it can handle chop very well. With the straps more back, moving the straps back or forth has even more influence on the boards performance. The Haka ST also features our special pretwisted trifin system, giving less drag, handling more power and a wider variety of angles of attack without losing grip. This link explains it all.

In comparison to the Haka ST, the Wave is more riding orientated, it gets more speed out of the wave and has more grip, drive and precision on the wave. The Haka ST, planes earlier, is faster sailing out and absorbs chop better. The riding style of the Haka ST is more skaty with less grip than the Wave but still good grip compared to most wave boards.

In comparison to the Haka ST, the Shaman is less technical to sail, planes earlier and keeps speed better. The Haka ST is the more radical version of the Shaman: turnier, faster and jumps better.

The HDD construction comes in luminous red, the CBC in luminous green and the SDT in yellow.

Production HAKA ST

Since march 2008, all the boards are being produced by our new, highly innovativ CAD/CAM production system. This allows us to step away from the model by year system, since any changes can be put through quickly without any further costs. We no longer have to wait till the new models are due NOR do we have to take hasty decisions if we would like to test a little longer………  We have the same system in our R&D centre and custom board factory on Fuerteventura as well as the production board factory in eastern Europe. All boards are built by hand like a full on custom board but the CNC system makes sure that the shape, reinforcements and inserts are always perfect. Together with the small steps in size they are half way in between serial production and custom: semi-custom.

*All boards have in principle the same shape but they are not simply scaled up or down proportionally. The smaller boards have been designed for both stronger winds and/or smaller sailors, the bigger boards for lighter wind and/or bigger sailors.
Deck graphics:
As standard, the SDT construction will come in yellow deck graphics, the CBC in luminous green and the HDD in luminous orange/red. On the CBC and HDD a color change is possible against a fee of 50 euros per color. Custom designs are also possible upon request with a minimum fee of 100 euros. 
**Weight +/- 5%
***When ordering a board you have the following options of Tri Fin set-up: SDT.) The Standard Fins are an entry level Tri Fin set up. Comes as standard with the SDT construction but can be chosen freely. HDD.) Pro Fin set up. Intended for the same windrange as the standard but for a modern upright sailing stance and more experienced and/or lighter wave sailors with who want it looser. Comes as standard with the HDD construction but can be chosen freely.
 
****All prices incl. 3 straps and 3 G10 fins with pretwistet side fins.
