Worldsails Blast 7.5

Jun 17, 2009

Luff: 475 Boom: 214

The Blast 7.5 is an easy-to-use power freeride sail. It’s deep draft generates most of the pull while the longer boom makes the power very easy to find. It really shines in the hands of progressing sailors who cannot yet trim the sail like an advanced rider. The large squared-off foot area also makes the Blast a better match on more directional boards that are either of traditional lengths or have a straight outline through the tail. Compared to its powerful competition it does lose stability a little sooner, but with a yank on the downhaul you can get the Blast to have an impressive wind range. As is usually the case, the features that make it so powerful don’t help when it comes to transitions. The Blast feels a little heavy and even though the cams rotate cleanly it takes a firm pump to get them to go. sailworld.com
