The Elite carries 35 years of Hookipa heart and soul: a sail that is strong and light, planes quickly, and remains ultra controllable even in the most hardcore conditions. Ezzy sailors trust the Elite. It has the power to drive through currents when the wind is onshore, but it is maneuverable enough to rip the waves on the way in and land backloops on the way back out. And the sail remains balanced and stable both on the wave and also over the chop in bump-n-jump seas.
Each year, the Elite changes in small adjustments that combine to create an elegant evolution over time. By adjusting the construction, this year we are able to make the sail feel lighter while at the same time being stronger in the clew, a traditional area of weakness for hardcore wave sails. We work on every aspect of the Elite to be perfect from rigging to carving. We developed the calibrated rigging system so that anyone can get perfect tuning in seconds. Like all our sails, we build the Elite in our very own factory because that is the only way we can insure 100% Ezzy quality.

Quality is our strenght
In 1983 David Ezzy made his first windsurfing sail under the Ezzy Sail black and white eagle logo. He started his custom sail business on Maui in an old shed that has since become a sleek design loft. Back then, custom sails were the means to success for every serious sailor and Ezzy Sails led the sailing revolution. Ezzy made sails that were renowned for their “Hookipa” traits: strength and power.
Now the Ezzy factory is housed in a 20,000 square foot, brand-new building in Srilanka owned by David Ezzy and the factory staff. It is a safe, non-toxic work environment with state-of-the-art computer cutting machines, employee amenities such as a staffed kitchen, transportation, uniforms and a music sound system. The distribution reach of Ezzy Sails has expanded to cover most countries worldwide. Word of mouth spreads the knowledge of the high quality standards behind the name Ezzy and the company continues to grow.Visit the Ezzy Sails website
