    ELITE

    All-around 4 Batten Wave Sail

     

    DETAILS

    The Elite carries 35 years of Hookipa heart and soul: a sail that is strong and light, planes quickly, and remains ultra controllable even in the most hardcore conditions.

    Ezzy sailors trust the Elite. It has the power to drive through currents when the wind is onshore, but it is maneuverable enough to rip ip the waves on the way in—and land backloops on the way back out. And, the sail remains balanced and stable both on the wave and also over the chop in bump-n-jump seas.

    Each year, the Elite changes in small adjustments that combine to create an elegant evolution over time. By adjusting the construction, this year we are able to make the sail feel lighter while at the same time being stronger in the clew, a traditional area of weakness for hardcore wave sails.

    We work on every aspect of the Elite to be perfect from rigging to carving. We developed the calibrated rigging system so that anyone can get perfect tuning in seconds. Like all our sails, we build the Elite in our very own factory because that is the only way we can insure 100% Ezzy quality.

    Each Elite is rigged, calibrated, and inspected in our factory before going out the door to sailors all over the world.

    We treasure the trust you place in us, and in return we give you the Elite.

    FEATURES

    WHAT MAKES THE ELITE DIFFERENT?

    The Elite is our #1 selling sail. The Elite is built for purpose--to perform in every kind of wave sailing condition. The Elite is a balance of power and maneuverability.


    All-Around PERFORMANCE

    The Elite is made to perform no matter the conditions. We test the Elite in Gran Canaria, Denmark, Hawaii, Japan, South Africa, and in every kind of wave sailing imaginable.


    HARDCORE CONSTRUCTION

    The Elite is built to withstand the daily beatings that a hardcore wave sail must endure, like big waves, sharp rocks, and coral reefs. The Elite comes from a lifetime of sailmaking knowledge applied to get maximum strength while reducing weight.


    CALIBRATED RIGGING

    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 Elite'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).
