The Ezzy Wave is our lightest wave sail ever—about 200 grams per sail compared to the Elite. The Ezzy Wave is even lighter than the Taka. Most of the weight saving comes from a more advanced design of the clew reinforcement and a Spectra-reinforced X-ply window instead of vinyl.
The Ezzy Wave is built to withstand the daily beatings that a hardcore wave sail must endure, like big waves, sharp rocks, and coral reefs. The Ezzy Wave comes from a lifetime of sailmaking knowledge applied to get maximum strength while reducing weight.
When the conditions are good, you want to get on the water as fast as possible and have your sail rigged perfectly. Traditionally, this is a tradeoff. But with the Ezzy Wave's calibrated rigging, you can tune your downhaul in seconds. Each and every sail is rigged and calibrated in the Ezzy Sails factory. Simply, downhaul till the bottom of your mast lines up with the desired setting: Max, Mid, Min 1, or Min 2 (for extra light winds).
WHY DOES THE 5.8 HAVE 5 BATTENS INSTEAD OF 4 LIKE ALL THE OTHER SIZES?
"When I set out to design the Ezzy Wave, my goal was to make the best sail possible in each individual size. During the development, I found that the 5.8 felt lighter and more stable with 5 battens than it did with 4 battens. I found that all the sails need to hvae a roughly similar distance between the battens, which means that the 5.8 neeeded another batten. If I made the 5.8 with 4 battens, it would compromise its performance.
The 5 batten 5.8 Ezzy Wave is actualy lighter than last year's 4 batten 5.7 Elite. And the Ezzy Wave is more stable and balanced as well." - David Ezzy
GRAHAM EZZY SAYS....
"The Ezzy Wave is so much better than my old sails that I feel like I have new boards, even though the boards are the same. These sails are so much lighter compared to the Elite, and when a gust hits, the sail simply accelerates without feeling heavy in the hands as it fills up with wind. This sail is powerful enough to get around in strong currents and onshore winds but also light and maneuverable enough to move around effortlessly on the wave—for onshore, sideshore, down-the-line.
The Ezzy Wave is the best wave sail that I have ever used, and it motivates me even more to go on the water because I’m sailing better."-GRAHAM EZZY
