Ezzy Zeta 5 Batten Red1
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 Margaret River or screaming across the Swan River 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.
