The Karma is our 5 BATTEN all-round power wave-on shore wave-Bump & Jump sail.
The Karma was designed along with the Slayer to be a more all-round sail for a wider range of use. The use of 5 battens is supported by a monofilm and PVC free construction with extensive use of X-ply with uni directional Kevlar fibers along the stress lines, giving a stable sail to offer the biggest windrange. The medium deep pre-shape in the sails gives both a lot of grunt in lighter winds plus a more stable shape in higher winds. The pre-shape in combination with the higher aspect make the sails very effective so you can rig 0.2 to 0.6 m² smaller. The power delivery is very smooth. Similar to motocross where they moved away from the nervous 2-stroke engines to 4 stroke engines.
As we are very experienced sail repairers as well, we can safely say that you will not be able to find a better built sail. The sail is built to handle getting washed by waves, without ripping or overstretching and loosing it´s crisp feel. A sail that keeps its shape feels lighter than a physical light sail that can´t keep its shape as well, either because its overstretched, less seam shape or because of less battens.
-biggest wind range
-can be set very grunty for super early planing and the sail still feels stable
-smooth power delivery
-More drive and control in the bottom turn
-Highest durability with average weight
The Karma works best with our Chakra, Shaman, Haka or Wave V4 boards.

The pre-shape in the sails combined with the higher aspect make them very efficient so you can rig 0.2 to 0.5m² smaller.
