Clip the WindPaddle Makani SUP Sail to your stand up paddle board and let the power of the wind transport you to your destination. Folds compactly to store on your deck when not in use.
  • Simply clip the WindHarness rigging clips to a bungee or deck line for rigging the sail to your SUP.
  • This isn't just a downwind sail; you can tack and maneuver up to 180 degree with simple tugs on the sail lines.
  • The windowed sail is supported by a laminated, non-corroding, highly elastic and virtually unbreakable perimeter batten.
  • Low-stretch 1/2-ounce rip-stop polyester spinnaker sailcloth, the same material used on racing yachts, will not absorb water or become heavy when wet.
  • 56" diameter sail gives you plenty of speed for a stable yet thrilling ride.
  • When not in use, the sail quickly coils into a 20" diameter package that stows flat on the deck. A pull on the control lines instantly launches the sail.
  • Practical, fun and a new challenge!

Comments about WindPaddle Makani SUP Sail:

after 3 years of Paddling experiance on a SUP it is awesome to now add a sail to the Board & recieve a reward after crossing the Lake in a stiff head wind ... I live in Alaska we have constant winds so having a sail in the Trick Bag ... well it is a no brainer = Built well - easy to attach stores well on deck ...Kinda hard to fold up if the winds are strong. I would recomend this sail to any one looking to have anouther fun thing to learn & a great tool for Travel

Afternoon Fun

        Comments about WindPaddle Makani SUP Sail:

        Great to capture afternoon winds when SUPing on Rio Grande. Makani clips well to D rings on deck. You do need to Eddy out to fold sail (takes some practice) and secure under deck bungee. Clear "window" panel helpful but placement a little low, designed for kayak. Can hold sail with one hand and paddle if necessary. Maneuverable to tack upstream, by adjusting hand line and distributing weight on either board's rails.
        Other boaters and boarders are envious as they struggle paddling downstream and see us flying upstream with the wind!!! Make the Best with what you've got!

            Comments about WindPaddle Makani SUP Sail:

            This adds a great new dimension to my inflatable SUP. I found that it requires open space and somewhat strong wind to catch the sail. It was fun to go over 10km/h while passing under a bridge. It is just too bad it just works with rear winds. It would have been nice if we could sail back home. But it is still worth the extra fun!

              Will this work on a 19 foot 2 person Kayak?

                A:

                Richard, it would probably work. However, the Adventure model, Item # 50205.01, is probably a better choice. It's more compact when folded and it's cheaper.

                A:

                You don't have to but holding the paddle And the sail sheets in your hands solves the problem of what to do with the paddle while sailing. Take a look at the video that's linked on the Vista Youth page.
