LIGHTWIND LTD Ultra Efficient Speed Machine
RRD’s new light wind killer proves windsurfing is exciting starting at 8 knots! Inspired by the race machines of current World Champion Antoine Albeau, this new design goes a step beyond by using the physics of light wind conditions and efficiency to maximize performance in these conditions. The shape incorporates; 236 x 91 cm outline with RRD Toro Tail (TT) profile, ultra slim hull thickness, scooped out deck and custom biaxial Carbon construction. With the Lightwind you’ll easily access quick planing, top end speeds, maintain planing in light wind, and have confidence and control as the wind and hull speeds increase. The Toro Tail features; deep cut outs, rolled beveled rails, outside flats. TT diminishes actual tail width feel, while benefiting planing, jibing, and control. TT allows for smaller fin size use, decreases back leg pressure and increases comfort over chop.

Customer Review - Feedback:
I sailed my new RRD X-fire Lightwind with a 9.5 sail in 8-10mph winds as soon as I received it. At 190 lbs I was Planing in 10mph winds. It is so Comfortable and simply a blast to sail. The unique tail shape and cut-out w/ TT is so clean and comfortable through the water. It's a very fast, light, responsive and easy to turn / jibe! I own formula and other smaller RRD X-fire boards and couldn't be happier or more impressed with the performance of this board. I Used a 52 cm pointer blade style fin and it worked perfectly with my 9.5. I can't wait to get out on it again! - Eddy E - FL - 3/20/15
