An all new “stripped down” collection from Ezzy.

A light-weight yet powerful beast, the Ezzy Tiger evolved to dominate in all wave and water conditions. Whether charging the biggest waves in the world or blasting around with friends on flat water, the Ezzy Tiger survives and thrives.

Ezzy Tiger Highlights:
  • The Ezzy Tiger is a less expensive alternative to the Panther Limited, using more cost-conscious materials.
  • Both the Ezzy Tiger and Panther Limited handle equally well in stronger winds, while our testers feel the Ezzy Tiger has slightly more light wind power.
  • Ezzy quality and construction standards—the highest in the world, bar none—insure bomb-proof durability.
  • The Ezzy Tiger features Ezzy’s own clear Spectra X ply on the leech.
And, each Ezzy Tiger, like every Ezzy produced, is rigged and de-clawed in the Ezzy Factory before being shipped to your local shop.

Color Choices - Based on Head Color

Blue/Green | Red/Yellow | Gold/Black

Note on Ezzy Masts

Ezzy Sails work great with the Ezzy Mast system, but also work with a variety of other brand masts (RDM and regular diameter). You could contact your mast maker and see if the bend of your non-Ezzy mast is compliant.

Ezzy mast bend curves are tip: 75% to 79% and base: 62% to 65%

Note: this is not carbon content. This is percentage bend relative to the midpoint bend.

For further info on Ezzy Mast sizing, please refer to our Mast Configurator Tool

Our removable, 316 stainless steel tack pulley can be replaced with our 316 stainless D-ring for those who prefer a grommet with a pulley hook.

    hello, sorry for my english, i´m spanish. I have two boards 95 and 80 lt. my question is for the configuration sails. for tiger`s size, i´m thinking buy 6.0 / 5.0 / 4.5 . Or 6.0 / 5.0 / 4.2
    thank you

  2. Anonymous says : Reply

    thank you for the comments Jose. I think you can go 6.0 / 5.0 / 4.2 without difficulty.
    In the Gorge, I go 5.0/4.2 no problem!
    Hope this helps.

    Where’s the Zephyr?

    • Anonymous says : Reply

      in the US, we’re still stocked great on ’11 Zephyrs. The ’12 Zephyr will be exactly the same except for some color options. We don’t have plans to order the ’12 and have it in stock until closer to late spring. The ’11 is the way to go if you are interested (lots of US dealers can get it for you marked down!)

    will my hots sails maui  430 hot rod mast work with the wave tiger 5.5 or cheetah 5.5?

    • Anonymous says : Reply

      Thanks for reaching out!
      I’m pretty sure the Hot bends are pretty similar to our bends. A 430 should rig up great in both a Cheetah 5.5 and a Tiger 5.5. Performance should be awesome.

    Hi,
    first, compliment on your sails. I’ve tried them with Ezzy masts and they were just awesome. I’ve been on North sails the last couple of years and so I am equipped with North Dropshape (Gold – 75% carbon) masts. I’m wondering if they would work with the Tiger? Also, as a friend of mine wants to change to Ezzy as well: what about SDM Neilpryde X6 masts compatibility ? 

    Thank you, Chris

    • ezzysails says : Reply

      thanks for the message Chris.
      Stoked to hear you enjoyed the Ezzy combo.

      North masts work great in our sails. Pryde is a little tricker. I don’t have as much technical info on file about their bends and they seemed to have changed over the years. I’ll email you separately an exact breakdown of our bend curves so that you know what we prefer.

      In General, this is what David has found:
      1) Standard constant curve:
      – ezzy
      – powerex
      – north
      – pryde
      – simmer

      2) stiffer tip:
      – gaastra
      – maui sails
      – severne

    Hi, wondering whether the 6.9 tiger will work well on an Ezzy RDM 430 base and 490 tip, which I read in another post makes a pretty good 460 mast. Thanks, Andrew

    Hi,
    I have a question about the best sail range. I’m currently riding a 2011 Panther size 6.0. Would the next smaller sail still be the 5.0? I’ve read that in the other comments or is there a huge difference between the sails of 2011 and 2012? The next sails would then be 4.2 and 3.7?
    I’m sailing my smaller sails, which I want to change on enemii masts. how do they work with ezzy sails?
    Thank you very much!!!

    • ezzysails says : Reply

      thank you for the message. One of the things that has improved over the years with sail design is range, so take advantage of it! I think going from a 6.0 to a 5.2 is great. 6.0 to 5.0 should work out just fine as well. From 5.0, I think 4.2 to 3.7 is perfect scaling.

      I’ve never heard of enemii masts. Perhaps you could inquire what their percent bend curve is on the tip and bottom? Why not consider Ezzy Masts?

    Hello…can I use your Tiger 6.9 with a 460 100% carbon SDM mast on flat water?

    • ezzysails says : Reply

      thanks for asking Nick. You can use any of our sails with SDM masts without a problem. Some masts have different bend characteristics. What brand is the SDM you are thinking of?

      thanks for reaching out Dominique!
      The Tiger really needs to get rigged on a 400 cm mast to work properly. If you have an Ezzy 370cm mast you can simply rig up a 430 tip with your 370 bottom however, and achieve a great 400cm mast lenth that works well within our bend tolerances. Hope this helps!

  11. Pat says : Reply

    Hi there, First let me say that I am in love with your sails!. I am picking up a new 6.9 and 5.8 tiger. I have powerex and simmer masts right now and wondered if they would work properly on the tiger sails.
    Also, ideally I would get 460 for the 6.9 and wondered if the difference in getting a 430 bottom and 490 top is noticeable from a straight 460 mast or is it close enough not to worry about. Thanks!

    • ezzysails says : Reply

      thanks for reaching out Pat! Glad to hear you like the sails. Both Powerex and Simmer have very similar bends to our sails, so you should be good to go. The 490 tip/430 bottom is a good combo to go with on the 6.9. What is nice is the 490 tip from Ezzy is very light. It is made from a higher grade carbon than the rest of our masts. A 490 tip/430 bottom will give you a good bend too. Hope this helps!

    Hello, is a 4m rdm mast with Base 62% and Top 75%* (+/- 2%) a good choice for a 2011 4.7 Panther

  13. matg says : Reply

    hello, when i first rigged mi 4,7 tiger 2012 with the ezzy 400 mast i noticed that batten number 4 ( top of the sails) pops in the oposite way that the lower battens. can you explain me why?

    • ezzysails says : Reply

      thanks so much for reaching out. I’m going to send you a direct email and ask you to submit a picture of your sail rigged up. I’m sure we can help you once we have a chance to review your rigging!

  14. Bill Stark says : Reply

    Hi, I was going to get a 5.2 tiger, will my 430 25 19 RDM be ok with that?

    I also have a 430 North SDM 3 piece, but I’m not sure the stiffness or if the 3 pieces are different etc as only the base part has numbers for that, it seems to not work in Neil pryde Combat sails I’ve tried, maybe it would with this Tiger, Cheers!

    • ezzysails says : Reply

      thank you for the inquiry Bill!
      A 430 mast is a workable option, but a 400 will enhance performance a bit. The nice thing with a 400 is that the rig is lighter, the mast is a touch softer, and it takes less downhaul to get the ideal shape. Still, a 430 will rig up okay.

      Our masts are based upon the following bend curves:
      tip: 75% to 79% and base: 62% to 65%

      I’m pretty sure North masts match up with our percent bend curve. Nolimitz likes stiffer tips and softer bottoms than us. You might consider looking for an Ezzy Mast (new or used) down the road. Let me know if I can be of assistance.
      Regards,
      Tim

      sorry about the comments about Nolimitz…I got your post confused with another!

    is there a big difference between a 6.0 tiger and a 6.o chettah .will be used on a 106 kombat in small waves and a 112 xfire on flat water days coastal sailing. Thanks. Martin

    • ezzysails says : Reply

      great question Martin. The Cheetah has two battens below the boom. The Cheetah is going to favor more freeriding as opposed to wave or freestyle sailing. Apart from that, the power will be similar. I think the 6.0 Cheetah would work great in small waves.

  16. Peter P says : Reply

    Hi, I have a Tiger 4.2 2012 sail but don’t have the 370 mast. Am i correct in my interpretation of the sail specs table that i can rig it on my Ezzy 400 mast? How much better would the performance be if i got the base of a 370 mast?ps i am an intermediate level sailor.

    • ezzysails says : Reply

      thanks for asking Peter. You can rig the 4.2 on a 400cm mast. The adjustable strap at the headcap of the sail will allow you to do this. The sail rigs okay on a 400, but it truly brings the sail to life to rig on a 370. The sail feels much more balanced, lighter, and rigs easier on the shorter mast. I began noticing this very big difference in 4.2’s many years back, and I think you will notice a major difference. You can obtain a 370cm overall mast length if you use a 400 tip combined with a 340cm bottom section. It works great! Perhaps you can find a slightly used or new 340 bottom only. Let me know if you need help finding one.

    Hello David!
    I’m looking to update my old quiver(ezzys wave 05)with 12 panther ltd., but is getting harder to find it. If can’t find it, I need
    to go with 12/13 tiger. Can you explain me the basic diference between them? Is It just cosmetic?
    Seze I’m looking for 4.5/5.2 and 5.8(wave). For light wind I’m in doubt, should I go with 6.5 or 7.0(cheeta-with fanatic freewave
    105 lts). Is there a big diference between 6.5 and 7.0? Thank you David!!!
    Leo

    • ezzysails says : Reply

      thanks for reaching out Leo! The only difference between the Limited and the Tiger is cosmetic really. They are the same profile and seam shaping. The ’13 Tiger came out looking just beautiful and has quickly become our best selling sail. On the Cheetah question, I might consider the 6.5 because it rigs on a 430. This would be an incredible light weight rig for your Fanatic, and you’d really enjoy the lightness,maneuverability, and range of the 6.5 I think. The 7.0 would need to rig on a 460. Hope this is helpful!

    Hello, I have a Tiger 4.7. Can I use it with a Gun SDM 430 mast ? Thank you

    • ezzysails says : Reply

      thank you for the message. Rigging the 4.7 on a 430 will compromise performance. The 4.7 would work much nicer on a 400 or our 400/370 mast combo. Rigging the sail on a longer mast is the same as rigging on a much stiffer mast. Downhaul tension will be more difficult, and overall range and balance will be compromised. It will work, but not quite as intended.
