In the fifth episode RIWmag tried to understand what is happening in the zone presses, What is the compaction and how they work the autoclave and extraction (www.riwmag.com/riwmag-italica-5to-episodio-dalle-presse-allestrazione/).
In the sixth episode along with Rossano RIWmag and’ was able to reconstruct and to submit to its public testing post-production windsurfing trees and measurement/verification of’ IMCS (www.riwmag.com/riwmag-italica-6to-episodio-i-test-dellalbero/)!
In the seventh episode Alberto Salazar tackling the subject of the comparison between the trees produced by sailmakers and General trees’ products from brands that do not produce sails (www.riwmag.com/riwmag-italica-ep7-alberi-a-confronto/).
Mostly these video episodes are divided into two categories, commercial and technical. In the eighth and final episode MALL Alberto Salazar tackling the subject of duration and performance windsurfing mast.
At the express request of Alberto his interventions were recorded in English, to follow the dialogue transcript in Italian.
RIW: Dear readers of RIWmag, Here we are again with Alberto Salazar and with this RIWmag's special mission to visit Italica. In this episode we would like to develop the topic of how often one end user should change tree.
Alberto Salazar: Once a week and’ the right answer? (NdR – laugh) Seriously the main point and’ Today the tree from windsurfing and’ the component more’ ignored until it breaks! Everyone always control your sail, its extension and its boom making sure that everything is working properly, but with the wind shaft until it breaks people don't realize they have a problem! When we are with some of our clients more’ important we enjoy the windsurfing and tree’ just a stupid tube in sailing and windsurfing becomes a tree only when it breaks! Dear readers of RIWmag and end consumers in general you don't take very good care of your tree!
But seriously, from a production point of view, We know that the tree from windsurfing should be changed depending on the amount’ spending time in the water. Take the example of someone coming out 80 times a year in windsurfing, Lucky him, We think that in this condition the tree should be changed once every two years.
Browsing 80 times a year, will probably change all the sails once a year, Why’ at the end of the year the sails begin to be consumed, the monofilm it’ more’ in the same State as when you and’ just bought the sail, but looking at the tree looks still pretty new. And then you hold the tree and changing the sails more’ times.
And’ an example of fun to see so’ many people in water use still-standing trees as Powerex, Fiberspar or trees or Roto (for those people who still remember those trees, but the reality’ and’ your sailing and’ designed around a tree. That tree and’ been updated constantly over the years, Why’ We take care of that evolution, our customers make their developments, and then trees improve.
This is not’ the only factor to consider. The other important factor and’ that trees from windsurfing work so’ (NdR – hand movements simulating the dynamic bending of trees) along with sailing. CIO’ means that the fibers and resins fulfill a job, then there are the direct rays of the Sun and those reflections from the water, more’ any impacts, all these factors create a kind of degeneration of shaft materials, I apologize for this error in spelling.
In any case, the tree becomes more’ soft and loses its properties’ mechanics and then you, the tree and’ still new, He didn't’ still broken, but the user is losing a great part of performance for which we've been working really hard to get, as the reflex, speed’ and all the performance of a tree.
And so my suggestion is: You can change the sails every year, the table every year, You can’ keep the tree for 2 or 3 seasons, but please, do not change any outfit every year keeping the same tree for 10 years!
Ok, and’ true, There are strong trees, they do not break nowadays, This and’ a fact, We know from our warranty statistics.
Si puo’ change tree really frequently so as to safeguard provision in the water to get them to the level that should be!
RIW: So what are the factors that decrease the performance and durability’ of the trees?
A.S.: To be honest it works like the monofilm, just wish the monofilm deteriorates more’ fast of carbon masts. These factors are: the Sun's rays, the salt water, the sand, continued pressure from receiving the tree, arm and disarm, the tree bends and then returns to its initial position. All these factors consume trees. This does not mean that the tree should break, most likely not break’ right, but over time they will reduce performance and fun on the water for sure.
You might complain that you invest some money and the tree doesn't break, and then you can’ still use, and in fact and’ true, There are surfers who do so’ for years, But if you get a chance’ to have a new tree, and possibly a tree from the same brand of sailing, then you can’ really notice that the wing will be working’ differently than the old confidence Powerex or Fiberspar.
RIW: Ok, This and’ all for this episode, Thank you so much Alberto for your explanations and for sharing your experience with us.
Readers: stay tuned on www.RIWmag.com, Thank you for your attention and Hang Loose!
A.S.: Bye bye.
