The Tushingham Bolt - No Ordinary Sail Range

Windsurfing Magazine



No Ordinary Sail Range

Tushingham Sails have just released the brand new sail range: The Bolt...this is no ordinary sail range though.

1 range. 4 variations. 13 sails.

Here’s 5 things you need to know about the Bolt:

Chris Murray on the Bolt

1. This is a real world sail, for the conditions you are most likely to encounter.

“Rather than simply amalgamating the four outgoing sails, we’ve stepped back, taken a long hard look at what the real world windsurfer requires and then redesigned the total windsurfing experience. Here we have a sail range that changes in style and configuration as it increases in size but maintains a lightweight, smooth feeling throughout. We have given you the right tool for the right time!”

2. No more wading through sail comparisons, the Bolt is simple. 

“Can a customer really wade through all the ‘guff’ and flowery text that’s written in brochures and tests and make the right decision? When windsurfing was popular it was simple! If you’re out on a 5.5m the conditions will change; you simply need a sail that will work whatever you throw at it. The ‘Bolt’ is that sail, it will do the job; and for the shop, with less sails in the range, you may even have one on the shelf!”

3. The range is made up of: 

“The Bolt range consists of 13 sails, progressing from a nimble four batten 4.0m all the way up to a seven batten twin cam 9.5m powerhouse. Full details of each sail can be found on the following pages but the global overview of sizes and configurations is as follows:

4. The sail looks good, especially with Chris Muzza Murray and his shiny blonde locks on it. 

5. This is a freeride range, which will replace some other Tushingham classics.

“It’s goodbye to our trusty test winning classics; the ‘Storm’, ‘T4’, ‘Lightning’ and the ‘Edge’. Now there’s one sail range that changes style as it increases in size; creating the ultimate freeride package.

BUT, for customers with specific requirements we’re keeping our specialist sails. The popular Rock for hardcore wave, the X-15 for speed/slalom and of course, the championship winning XR Race together with the full range of entry level sails (Start, Dino, Concept and Easy).”
