Back to the Future...
If you’ve windsurfed for as long as we have,you remember David Ezzy’s North Zeta from the late 80’s and early 90’s. With a shorter luff,a larger head, and five battens rather than four,the original zeta shocked the sail world and became the forerunner of the modern 5-batten wave sail. Fast forward 25 years of intensive R&D: a new Ezzy Zeta is born.
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 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 Hookipaor screaming across the San Francisco Bay ona windy afternoon.
The Zeta features our calibrated rigging system which means you can rig your sail exactly the same way David does. Just downhaul until the line on the gauge lines up with the bottom of your mast and you are ready to sail.
To insure our quality, we make the Zeta in our own factory. And like every Ezzy sail, the Zeta is rigged, calibrated, and thoroughly checked before it goes in the bag and out the door. With the re-birth of the Ezzy Zeta, the future of five batten wave sails is here.
