THE 2014 LEGACY SERIES

An all new “stripped down” collection from Ezzy.

At the heart of the Legacy is the bare elements of David’s design philosophy. The Legacy Sails deliver all the power, range and stability you have come to expect from Ezzy but with a twist. We keep a utilitarian philosophy with the Legacy by removing all the extra features present on our premiere sails.

A high performance wave and freeride collection that delivers awesome performance for your more budget-minded customers.


"The Legacy has everything you need and nothing you don't need. The Legacy reminds me of the days when I was getting full-on custom sails built for competition, they had none of the marketing b.s. that people think they need but don't really. This sail is a classic Ezzy design, pure and simple. "

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.

    Hi I am interested in an Ezzy quiver after being very impressed by a used 2009 4.7 Panther I got for grabs – just to try out your brand. Right now I ride North X-Types 5.3, 6.6, 7.8 but I hate the monofilm.
    I would like to cover 4-8m. Less is more style.. What do you think of 4.2, 5.2, 6.5 Legacies and a 8.0 Cheetah? I think the 4.2 – 5.2 spacing could be somewhat too big? What do you say? Cheers

    • ezzysails

      thanks for asking Anton!
      I love that quiver! Only suggestion I might consider is the following:
      4.2, 5.0, 6.3 Tiger
      8.0 Cheetah

      Otherwise, the quiver you selected works great too. The 4.2 to 5.2 jump is just a little big for folks like us out here in the Gorge…but based upon your local conditions it might be just the ticket!

      • Anton Puttemans

        Alright thanks for the suggestion. I was interested in the Legacies though. What about the 6.3 Tiger vs the 6.5 Cheetah? I guess the Cheetah pulls a tractor in flatter water and the Tiger would be better in choppier conditions right? How does the 6.5 Legacy compare to the Cheetah or Tiger? I am specially interested in the 6.5 size as it is my most used sail now.

        • ezzysails

          your analysis is spot on. The Cheetah is going to pull better and feel nicer in flatter water. The Tiger is more manuverable, as it has one batten below the boom instead of two. The Legacy is a great option as it is right in the middle of the two sails. It has one batten below the boom, but has a fulller profile more like the Cheetah. It sounds like the Legacy might be an exact fit now.

          • Anton Puttemans

            OK thanks for the information about the profile! The Legacies in the middle of the range might be exactly what I am looking for indeed. How does the wind range of the Legacy compares to Tigers and Cheetahs?
            Rethinking my 2 boards | 4 sails quiver, how about a 8.0 Cheetah, 6.5, 5.2 Legacies and than to make the jump a little smaller I could go for a 4.5 Tiger. My smaller board is a Tabou 3S 96L which has a sail range of 4.2 – 6.6 anyway, so not to push it.
            Hey what about the 2015 Legacies? When are you guys updating the website? I see the new colors already on some surf shops sites, but no pictures…

          • ezzysails

            hi Anton,
            The wind range of the 4.2-5.2 Legacy should be exactly the same as the same sizes in the Tigers. That is because the Legacy is the same shape exactly. The Legacy just has less extra “bells and whistles” to keep the cost down. The 6.5 and 7.5 are like the Cheetah, but with one less batten below the boom.

            The 2015 Legacy will remain exactly the same design. There is always different colors coming out of the factory in the Legacy model because we reserve the right to use excess color stock (all in an effort to keep costs down).

      hi Anton
      I believe we answered your question…but the formatting on the forum can be hard for me to understand. If we didn’t answer your question, please shoot me an email to ezzy@gorge.net

    Hi, I own a cheetah 6.5 and elite 5.3 2014. I would like to buy a new legacy but I don’ t know what would be a better drop size: 4.7 or 4.2?
    I don’t wave sail, the most of the time I sail in rough conditions. I sail on a 106 L and my weight is 62 Kg.
    Eventually for the 4.2 I would use a powerex 400, could it be a good idea?
    Thank you!
    Nino

    • ezzysails

      hi Nino, thanks for asking! I might suggest the 4.7 as a nice next step in your quiver. It is important to realize as you get smaller sails, the difference in wind power and sail range becomes more and more critical. The leap from 5.3 to 4.7 will feel more critical than say the leap from a 5.3 to a 5.9. I also feel like sailing a 4.2 on a 106 L board might be outside of a comfortable configuration…the board may be too big for that much wind. I would strongly suggest you discuss it with your local windsurfing shop who can really help you with local conditions and your equipment first hand.

      • Antonino Girone

        Thank you so much for your good advices!
        Best regards,
        Nino

  • Ernesto Villalba

    Hi, I have an Ezzy Legacy 6.5. I do not have a 430 mast but have a 400 and a 460 ezzy skinnies. What’s best, rigging the sail with the 460, leaving 15 cm on top? Or using the 460 top and the 400 bottom, which would make a 430 mast? Thanks

    • ezzysails

      great question Ernesto! I would suggest you first try the 460 tip/400 bottom combination for your Legacy 6.5. It should feel really nice!!!
