3S ’18

3S

ALL-SEA

 

A compact freewave board for new-school windsurfers who want to have one board for
freeriding, wave sailing, freestyling, and bump-n-jumping.

 

FOR WHO:

Windsurfer looking for a compact all-around board

A full quiver in just one board, the 3S is a board to ride in all sea conditions, similar to the
all-mountain ski in skiing. The 3S planes fast and easily like a freerider but is
maneuverable enough to carve in the waves and to try freestyle tricks.
In 2017, we introduced the new compact 3S. The shorter outline makes turning much
easier and therefore allowed us to use a straighter rocker, which makes a faster board.
The shorter shape also fits better in small cars and boardbags.
The 3S uses a double step tail cutout to increase both speed and maneuverability. In a
straight line, the cutouts have less wetted surface area and therefore less drag and a
higher top speed. On the rail, the cutouts act like kick tail so that the board turns in a
much tighter radius.

How do you choose between the 3S and the 3S Classic?

If you are looking for your first short board, the longer outline of the 3S Classic is better for you. Likewise, you should also go with the 3S Classic if you prefer a board that is more forgiving rather than maneuverable. If you are already comfortable on a short board and want a board to help improve your wave sailing or freestyle while still being fun on flatwater, the more compact 3S is a better shape for you.
