Tactik 320 x 76cm high volume, Light wind fun/race with large Carbon Dagger Description: Our design brief for the ’AHD Tactik' was clear and simple; to allow you to have real sailing pleasure in 0-15 kts (20 kts max) winds with the ability to enjoy the light wind fun and performance of a Race board, without their known disadvantages, and give the rider a Freeride board feel and performance, in planing winds!
Our Tactik glides extremely well when heeled in light winds, thanks to its 'ship-bow', Large Carbon Fibre Centreboard and light weight. In the 12 to 20 knot wind range on a reach/broad reach with dagger retracted, its planing hull will take over, offering speed and feel not dissimilar to a large Freeride 'short board'.
It is ideal for those with limited time who cannot 'chase the wind', but want to enjoy the best Windsurfing when they can get out, or who want one board which will revel in light wind, which is also a modern lightweight performance board that planes quickly off the wind, making it ideal for coastal & lake fun/cruising, as well as buoy racing fans.
Throughout the Tactik development, we have concentrated on synchronizing with the best developments in both boards and rigs of the last few years, and mixed them in a different way to achieve our ambitious original brief.
Shape: High rounded bow forward to break through the chop and improve glide in light winds, blending into a fast 'planing optimised' shape in the aft two thirds. It is ideally suited to 6.5 to 9.5m rigs, but can go bigger and smaller according to ability.
This is a thick (18cm) and wide board (76cm). Its construction is top of the range sandwich allowing a 13kg weight for a 250L volume! The centreboard and system are 100% Carbon and easily operated with a single foot. It has a Deep Tuttle fin box and is supplied without fin, but we can easily supply any fin from the Sellect range and would recommend fins from the S1-XL or Race range for performance, but it will be very happy with a large Ride or Power Edge for recreational play time!
