Technical Details


Product Description

All WindPaddle sails connect to your existing desk hardware and are made with durability in mind. Made from rip-stop nylon sailcloth. The same material big sailing boat spinnakers are constructed of. The clear window allows for good visibility. Seams are triple-stitched and the perimeter batten is made of a virtually unbreakable composite material. Out in big winds on a large body of rough water is not where you want your equipment to fail. These sails will be pulling hard long after you are ready to head into shore. We stand behind our sails with the statement, "IF you can figure out a way to break it, we'll fix it for free."

I really wanted to like this product. I carried it on or in my sea kayak in Puget Sound, the San Juan Islands in Washington, and the Gulf Islands in British Columbia for five months. Most recently, I had it on my kayak at Lake Powell in Utah and Arizona. In that time, I just couldn't find the ideal conditions needed to use it effectively. When I could get a strong enough wind to use it, I found I could generally paddle faster downwind than the sail could carry me. But when the wind was variable, I'd get it up and the wind would die or change direction. I spent most of my time folding and unfolding it. It would get caked with salt from seawater splashed and dried on the sail material while on deck. The see-through plastic yellowed after awhile. Eventually, I thought it was more trouble to bring it on long trips than it was worth. On really windy days where I would expect it to excel, the wind was either too gusty or too directionally variable to deal with, and I was afraid to use it. I haven't given up on it yet, but I think it's more of a toy than a tool, and you need very steady, stiff downwind conditions to make it worthwhile to deploy.

Works well. It took a few tries to fold it the first time. Definetly need to practice folding on dry land before trying the fist time. Other then that, it's easy to use.

I've used the WindPaddle with my 10-foot kayak about 15 times now, in all levels of wind, and it has worked even better than I hoped. It is more durable than I expected, showing no signs of wear or tear, and I don't baby it. I use it nearly every time I go out kayaking now. Before I would let the kayak sit on days with moderate to heavy wind. Now I look forward to using my kayak -- and WindPaddle -- on those days. I get a good workout paddling up-wind first, and then I use the WindPaddle to sail all the way "down" the lake, then store the WindPaddle on deck and paddle home. I can use the WindPaddle on a reach -- at up to a 90-degree angle to the wind -- by using my regular paddle as a rudder, but certainly there is no taking up wind like with a sailboat; that's still where the exercise comes in. Using the WindPaddle Adventure Sail (mid-weight model) is so fun and rewarding, I'm contemplating buying the large, canoe-size WindPaddle and using it with my canoe -- and for some really high-speed downwind sailing on my kayak on a windy day!

Very well designed and constructed, simple to use and the damn thing actually works, unlike all the others I have tried. I am gonna buy another for my tandem kayak.

I feel like this is a good product but I do not see $140 value. The sail is mainly for down wind or up to 20 degree but the further you go to the side of the wind the harder it is to steer in that direction. The wind is always trying to push your hull into the down wind direction. It is very easy to get set up and deploy and works pretty well although you have to be in a 15 mph plus wind to get you up to a speed you could paddle. I would recommend this sail if you can find it for around $110.

There is a bit of a learning curve with this. At first I could only sail predictably downwind ... As I've gotten more time using it I find I'm able to sail off wind reasonably well.
It excels at being a compact , lightweight piece of gear that is very easy to take along. If you feel like going where the wind is going or if the wind is going where you want , it is A+ in a fairly good wind. You can go off wind but I generally paddle to get me precisely where I'm going after riding with the wind. I added better clips, a compression strap & a carabiner to make it work best for me. I've sailed a canoe for 20+ years with leeboards & a lanteen rig & I did not want all that . I like it and it is close to being mostly what I wanted. It's simple to carry, set up & fold away. The more I use it , the more I like it.

Need much higher winds than what they say. Works ok. Ease of use is great.

I have used this several times, without any great benefit as far as moving. I am 230 pounds, so that may be part of the problem. I took it out in a good wind yesterday. After struggling with it getting water in it, and the line falling under the bow, I got it going. I went downwind about a mile. The trouble is that I could probably have paddled downwind more easily. It requires a lot of work to keep it inflated. You must continuously readjust your course. I will try it again in an even stronger wind. It may be that I am just too heavy for this sail to pull well in a moderate wind. Possibly the largest size would work. I have always enjoyed paddling downwind, and this sail proved to be a real distraction from just enjoying the ease of paddling downwind. The kayak and your body and clothes provide a fair amount of push.
