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.
