Flat Earth Trade Wind .80 Sail

Flat Earth Trade Wind .80 Sail



The Trade Wind is the all-rounder sea kayak sail, and the 0.8m is designed for single kayaks if you're looking for a very user friendly design.

The Trade Wind sail is the signature design based on the simple idea of putting a sail on a sea kayak.

Made from a mylar/scrim/mylar tri-laminate, designed to be both tear & UV resistant, with a very cool modern look which also allows you to see through the sail at the approaching conditions.

Flat Earth sails are made out of a new Trilaminate sail cloth, giving amazing shape holding properties, available in a range of colours.

Flat Earth Sails are manufactured in Sydney, designed by the late Mick MacRobb, and meet all of the rigorous quality targets we would expect from a paddling aid that in the right conditions can supercharge your kayak. The video below gives a rundown on the Flat Earth of sails, and Mick's thinking behind the design

There is a fantastic article Rob Mercer wrote about Sea Kayak Sailing & safety, which was published in Britain's Ocean Paddler Magzine HERE. It's worth a read if you're considering getting into kayak sailing..

Douglas Wilcox has written a comprehensive review of the sail on his excellent sea kayaking blog Sea Kayak Photo, which you can read HERE.


Note, all Flat Earth Sails come complete with all fittings & fixtures required to fit your sail. You don't need any extra hardware.

PLEASE NOTE, transporting any of our sails on the roof of a vehicle will void any warranty. Please take it off the kayak and stow it inside your vehicle if you’re transporting.
