Zeta - 5 Batten

The Delta Quick Review: Even though there is a new (old) name on Ezzy's 5 batten sail, you can clearly trace back it's evolution all the way to the 2001 Special Edition. That sail was a revelation at the time, with an unprecedented wind range for a wave sail. It was one of the first to really establish the use of wave sails for higher winds even when there was not a wave in sight.

In the 16 years since that ground breaking model there have been a few big stepping stones. In 2007 a higher outhaul tension system was added, which admittedly confused people at first, but has lead to Ezzy's feeling much lighter on the water. In 2009 the Technora sail cloth was introduced and once again in dramatically lightened the sail. In 2013 the ingenious Calibrated Downhaul System was added, finally taking the guess work out of how to properly tune a sail. Now 2017, along with a new name, there is a Dacron luff panel.

This Dacron luff panel gives the Zeta a softness in rotation, as well as feel, that makes the 2017 a significant step forward in it's evolution. All the wind range, ease of tuning and incredible build quality that you'd expect of an Ezzy is still there. Now the sail is just that little bit more responsive in a straight line, and smoother in transitions.

Manufacturer's Info:

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. 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. Get ready for the rebirth of a legend!

The new Zeta keeps the lightness and easy feel of the 3 and 4 batten Ezzy wave sails but adds 5-batten stability and responsiveness. This Ezzy Zeta is powerful and easy to control, and is equally at home on a wave at Hookipa or screaming across the San Francisco Bay on a 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

"To condense our thoughts, we can say that it is a sail which it is a pleasure to go windsurfing with. If possible, this sail's response is even more neutral than that of other Ezzy models (Tiger/Elite), which is also legendary. Indeed, this sail gives a great feeling of lightness and maneuverability in your hands, and it is powerful, never being tiring." - Waterwind, it.
