The new Sting Ray TT – Feel the Thunder!
The Sting
Ray range has been upgraded with a proven concept from our innovative Formula
Race winner, the Falcon 100 – The Thunder Tail (TT). The TT is a unique system
of using 2 triangular tail channels, which not only look radical, but have incredible
performance advantages:

  • More direct, performance feeling due to the new trim position and greatly
    reduced drag = even more top speed!
  • Improved control and ease of sailing due to the reduction of surface in
    the tail, allowing an bigger wind range!
  • Better reaction and manoueverability with less tail volume and new direct
    trim position!

All other shape details remain the same on the Sting Ray TT range, the Virtual
Volume and Balanced Shape Concepts, thin Manouever Rails and the Air Cushion
Rocker line – all the details that made the original Sting Ray range both test
winners and personal favourites of thousands of sailors!

Produced in the exclusive Carbon Sandwich Technology, the Sting Ray TT range
has the lightest and stiffest feel of all the Ray´s – and with the TT
system now has a distinct performance advantage too!

Supplied with a Maui Fin Company designed Integral Carbon, Spine Technology
fin and soft and comfortable Fanatic velcro footstraps, the Sting Ray TT is
the ultimate Freeride package – Feel the Thunder!

work while you enjoy your ride!

weapon for blasting all those cool racers away! Handles sails up to 9.5 m²
without a second thought and has a top end speed of a Freerace or Slalom board.

stable and lets you concentrate on just having fun!

– no matter! The absolute light wind killer has the biggest wind range of all
the Rays, pushing early planing to lower and lower levels! Put a 10 m²
sail on it and blast your Raceboard friends to shreds as they fight for control.
Teach your friends and family to windsurf with the ultra stable 80 cm wide mid-point!

Design Features

Thunder Tail More direct performance feeling, improved control
and better reaction and manoeuvrability

Virtual Volume Concept Because the overall surface is so much
larger, stability and early planing are far
superior to traditional shapes – overall there is less volumeneeded for
the same flotation and stability as a much bigger, conventional outline,
with better performance in both lower and upper end

Balanced Shape Concept Outline and thickness work together to ensure
the perfect amount of lift and
volume placement is achieved through a wide mid pointand thinner nose/tail
shapes. No matter where you stand on the board, it is always perfectly
stable and balanced

Air Cushion Scoop Rocker Line
A scoop rocker line that creates incredible
light wind lift giving the Ray’s the
perfect trim position on the water as though they are floating on a cushion
of air

Manoeuvre Rails The thin, tucked rails are a direct influence
from the Freestyle/Wave boards to
allow the Ray´s to be controlled and manouevered like far smaller

Carbon Sandwich Constr. Incredible stiffness and rigidity with
an optimised weight/strength ratio

Dynamic Nose Flex Absorbs stresses in the nose area and makes planing
and control more efficient

Carbon T-Stringer Light stiff carbon cloth inserted between the
tail and mast track to minimise Twist
