For 2017, the Elite has gone through some fundamental improvements. The new sail inspires us to sail better and to rig up quicker to get more time on the water. The new luff panel makes the Elite more maneuverable without sacrificing overall performance. The biggest change though, is perhaps the new construction process, with makes the Elite feel lighter, allowing it to plane more quickly
Ezzy make two dedicated flatwater sails, the Lion and Cheetah. The performance goals are the same for both–power, speed, and control—but each sail achieves them using different shaping methods. We don’t believe in taking a race sail, de-tuning it, and calling it a freerace sail. The Lion is designed from scratch. David Ezzy draws on his more than 30 years of designing and testing cambered sails to get just the right mix of power, speed and control in the Lion.

The new Zeta keeps the lightness and easy feel of the Taka-3 but adds 5-batten stability and responsiveness. The scrim luff panel keeps the Zeta’s power easy to control. The new Zeta is equally at home on a wave at Hookipa or screaming across the San Francisco Bay on a windy afternoon.
David Ezzy set out to solve the 5-batten puzzle: how to make a 5 batten wave sail feel “alive” and not “stiff”. Instead of tweaking the existing 5-batten sail, the Tiger, David worked on turning the 3-batten Taka into a 5-batten sail.
The most obvious of the technical changes made to the Taka-3 is the strategically placed scrim luff panel for a softer, more forgiving feel. “Oh behave, baby!” The Taka-3 does just that in strong wind: no flutter, no movement of draft–just a well behaved, super smooth ride.
