You might remember David Ezzy’s North Zeta from the late 80’s and early 90’s. The original Zeta shocked windsurfing back then by being the first 5-batten wave sail. Fast forward a few decades and some intensive R&D, and the Ezzy Zeta rides again.
The Zeta’s constant drive and easy acceleration make the Zeta the perfect sail for onshore waveriding and bump’n’jump conditions.
In fact, the Zeta is Graham Ezzy’s sail of choice for all professional wave competitions. The Zeta’s stable profile gets going right off the beach:
“When I’m competing, I have only 12 minutes in each heat to do all my jumps, wave rides, and tricks. I need a sail that planes early and flies around fast so that I can make the best use of every minute of my heat. The Zeta has constant power that drives through the lulls, currents, and chop so that I am always planing even when the conditions are tough. The luff panel allows the Zeta to de-power, making it perfect for all my tricks—like backloops, takas, and wave rides.”
The Zeta features the Ezzy calibrated rigging system which means you can rig your sail with exactly the same precision every time. Just downhaul until the line on the gauge lines up with the bottom of your mast and outhaul using the indicator cords.
And like every Ezzy sail, the Zeta is rigged, calibrated, and thoroughly checked before it goes in the bag and out the door of the Ezzy factory in Sri Lanka.
This Ezzy Zeta is powerful, easy to control, and equally at home on a wave at Hookipa or screaming across your favourite windsurf spot on a windy afternoon.
