The 2023 Dragon is the ultimate high performance, progressive wavesail. Supercharged WARP-PATH™ construction with S2Maui’s exclusive, incredibly responsive, extreme strength Carbon WX Spacelight™ blended with ultralight Technora™ Spacelight™ for an ultralight, smooth and reactive feeling without equal. Combining incredible maneuverability and light, responsive handling with excellent power and wind range, the Dragon will draw the most radical lines at Ho’okipa, while also dominating a wave competition during a North Sea storm. Achieving agility and power from its perfectly balanced lower aspect ratio, the Dragon helps you execute the most demanding wave moves in down-the-line and onshore conditions alike, transitioning flawlessly from hard driving bottom turns to neutral off-the-top. Combining the power of traditional sails .2 square meters larger with reduced rotational inertia due to the low aspect ratio and super lightweight, the Dragon has a breathtaking maneuverability advantage that has to be experienced.
“When it comes to performance, the S2Maui Dragon is simply the sail I can trust the most. The lightness and maneuverability made me have good results at contests, especially at the Aloha Classic.”
(Camille career best PWA event results 2nd place at Aloha Classic, 3rd place at Cabo Verde.)
“It’s great to have a wave sail that always has some power available so that I can accelerate on demand, especially when the wind and waves aren’t totally perfect and I need to make last minute adjustments during a bottom turn. The magic is that this “stored power” doesn’t translate into more effort or weight. The Dragon only gives you the good parts: control and speed!
For the 2023 Dragon, we increased the shape stability at the lower 2 battens, while also making the twist more connected in the mid and upper leech, leading to improved overall wind range and a more responsive character. Thorough testing of our hybrid Carbon fiber/Technora™ WARP-PATH™ load oriented construction in Maui’s North shore surf has proven it to combine the ultimate in extreme strength and amazing sail weights 15-20% lighter than the competition.
