A new sail is born: the Ezzy Wave.
My goal with the Ezzy Wave was to combine thepower and stability of our Zeta, with the lightnessand handling of our Elite.
Getting the Ezzy Wave right was a challenge. Ithad to satisfy both my son Graham’s need for powerin European on-shore conditions and 8x worldchampion Kevin Pritchard, who demands lightnessand maneuverability for side-off wave riding.
The Ezzy Wave is built to my quality standardswhile coming in about 200 grams lighter, per sail,than the Elite. Weight reductions came in a number
of areas. I replaced the vinyl window withSpectra-reinforced X-ply, and the clew design islighter, which in addition to saving overall weight,reduces the swing weight. For comparison, the new4. 7 is now the same weight as last year’s Elite 4. 2,making the Ezzy Wave one of the lightest wave sailsin the world.
As with all of our sails, the Ezzy Wave is riggedand calibrated with a load cell, then meticulouslychecked over in my factory.
The Ezzy Wave comes highly recommended.

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
