|The design brief was simple: develop a concept board that would make sailing in 2-9 knots exciting, challenging and rewarding. The instant acceleration, totally serene gliding sensation, almost ghosting and alive ride makes light wind areas around the world become the playground for people who take pleasure in the smooth sensitivity of a windsurfing hull.
The partly round bottom shape can be sailed with a fair bit of railing for sailors who are able to appreciate this, providing an especially exciting feel no other boards can match.
The minimalist design has a 70cm daggerfin and the deep V tail-shape provides enough directional stability to eliminate the need for a tail fin. A 40 cm shallow fin is also available for shallow waters, and it makes sailing in higher winds more stable. On the deck a little storing compartment is conveniently located just on top of the daggerfin box. The carry handle makes it possible to carry the board and rig to the water with the daggerfin fully inserted.
The Serenity is a rewarding board to sail for those who have the skill levels or wish to develop the skills to get the most out of light winds, but is it a balancing act which some sailors may find too challenging?
