STAY ZEN

Year after year the A-H-D Zen has adequately fitted the requests of many large and small sailing-schools and stood up to the challenge of endurance thrown by its plastic forerunners.

Why should we change anything to a well found product? We prefer to retain the same proven model.

The Zen range has the added advantage to offer a well planed progression from the very stable - yet planing - 230 to the true free-ride 170 and its zest of performance and smooth gybes, through the 190 on which the aspirant rider will start realising consequences of his feet placing and pressure.

ON THE WATER:

These school or family boards are aimed at getting you surfing on your own within a few hours, without forgetting that you get on for pleasing times and some sensation building. Wrong-footing friendly, they very quickly offer gliding sensations due to their good speed in moderate winds.

SHAPE:

Our Zen range regroups 3 different shapes which follow an evolution from beginners-tuition to a true free-ride sailing. Their volume repartition has been carefully researched and the scoop lines, we use, will guarantee smooth accelerations to maintain stability and comfort the beginner.

Our 3 Zens have a full EVA deck, both comfortable and reassuring for kids and older beginners, their centre-boards are all fully retractable.

SHAPE SPECIFICS:

Scoop line: progressive, ideally designed for getting smoothlyinto a plane without that disrupting on/off effect and for optimal gliding at slow speeds.

Outline: long and homogeneous for more stability, more lift and more forgiveness.

Double concave bottom: higher the speed, lower will the wetted area be, your board will be gliding effortlessly (on Zens 230 and 190)

Deck: full EVA, soft and comfortable.

Dagger-board: fully retractable
