When the Kona Windsurfing team began the development of a new school sail line
the ambition was clear – create the best school sail ever. To achieve the goal Tinho
Dornellas was given the responsibility to head the development process, putting his
30 years of professional windsurfing experience into the process. Previously this
season his latest school board design Kona Hula, was successfully introduced.
The sail design is built upon Tinho’s unique concept of “balanced power”. Kona Spark
has a unique sail plan shape. The goal is to shorten the mast and produce as much
power as possible, for each sail size, targeting each sailor weight and size with the
proper sail so they can experience “balanced power” as soon as possible. It makes the
board surge in speed without any effort. It means that performance and enjoyment
goes hand in hand and ultimately results in a fast learning curve. It is exclusively
made of x-ply which makes it stronger and lighter.
