AHD SEALION XL RATIONALE
The original version of the Sealion XL, the A-H-D Summerboard has fully EVA padded deck and rails.
This is ideal configuration for Schools and those families who want to have a do-it-all family board, with which to have fun every day!
SHAPE & SHAPE SPECIFICS are exactly those of the Summerboard, without the Full EVA Wrap Deck and Rails. Sealion XL Below.
Originally developed for a more friendly approach to Sealion wind-sup-surfing and for larger surfers, the Sealion XL has proved its worth both in attracting more newcomers, and proving the weapon of choice of heavier riders, as Jeff Henderson's overall win in the 2011 Mondial Sealion on a Sealion XL has demonstrated.
Thanks to this, more and more riders have now joined the Sealioner's Club which has its own community and forum @:
Every year more riders to convene at the Mondial SeaLion just for the fun of it, to sail, paddle and party together
The family atmosphere of these events is the best demonstration of our belief that windsurfing can still be a leisure which kids, men and women can ALL share.
The Sealion XL is a very stable board; it bobs-up on the white-water, thanks to the limited area impacting the wave. With a bottom designed to skim in 1-2 knots winds, it will plane at the very first breeze.
Its surfing curves are neat and stable, thanks to excellent supports on the voluminous rail in a bottom turn and instantaneous pivoting when later putting you weight on the back foot in the cut-back.
On a plane, this board will show a surprisingly good speed.
Both gybes and tacks will be easy to master.
- Larger surfers will finally have found the board they needed to join the Sealion fray on very light winds days - The Sealion XL is an excellent stand-up-paddle board too!!
A 9' long "retro fish" shape, the AHD Sealion XL sports a 152 Litres volume, with a 75.6cm width. It is still a compact board.
As with the Sealion 8'3, the underwater shape is a continuous Vee.
Once more, the twin-fins set-up confirms it's excellence in light winds.
To allow some "further-upwind" action, we have fitted a central Power-Box, just aft of the mast-foot, that small "keel" really helps in light wind sailing and tuition.
Voluminous rails allow an excellent performance in the surf as well as giving very good stability.
A rather curved scoop delivers soft gliding and surfing performances.
" Scoop line: curved
" Wide and compact outline: early planing, manoeuvrability, liveliness, control
" Rails: voluminous and tucked under forward, for more
manoeuvrability, forgiveness and good lift in the surf.
" Continuous V: maximizes glide in the non-planing transitions and manoeuvrability.
" Double concave bottom: helps the board's accelerations by flattening the scoop-line.
" Twin Fins: for manoeuvrability and lightness of the surfing attitudes in lower wind range.
" Central fin/dagger-board (pre-fitted Power Box): Just fit any spare fin for stability, ease of Uphauling and up-wind help for beginners.
