Product Overview

David Ezzy started making his custom windsurfing sails that were renowned for strength and power on Maui in 1983. Today, Ezzy sails are made in a 20,000 square foot, state-of-the art factory in Sri Lanka. Ezzy Sails has expanded through word of mouth to windsurfers worldwide because of the high quality standards that name Ezzy stands for.

2014 Ezzy LionThe Ezzy Lion is inspired by 8-time world champion Kevin Pritchard, and it’s the best cambered freeride sail out there.

This Freeride / Freerace camber induced sail is powerful, light weight and incredibly strong. For 2014 Ezzy added a new panel layout to improve load paths on the sail surface. The new 5 mil polyester X-film that was added in the upper sections are designed to minimize stretch and reduce weight. Also, the Lion’s twist in the head batten has been reduced, producing “Function Twist”. As a result, the Lion feels “crisper” and goes to upwind extremely well.

The Lion now has a calibrated downhaul system for both Ezzy masts and non-Ezzy masts. The 2 cam system is fully customizable to fit any standard diameter mast and any RDM system.
The Ezzy Lion is light, making jibes snappier and more consistent. The Ezzy Lion also has a narrow mast sleeve that won’t weigh you down with water, making it easy to waterstart and uphaul.

And of course, like every Ezzy sail, each Lion is rigged and tuned in the factory so that it is ready for you right out of the bag.
