The sail is super light weight with only 3 1/2 battens. This low aspect arrangement allows even a 6.0 to set on a 400 mast. With its 100% grid construction it offers a nice combination of durability and low end punch. The sail is more than just a low aspect wave sail, as it complements an SUP perfectly. With just 3 full length battens it depowers on a wave face instantly. It also depowers when waiting outside for that next set to roll in. Sheet in and the acceleration is instant. The Vice is a very versatile off-the-beach sail that will work on a large variety of boards.
