2015 Legacy

Click on sail image for zoom view


David Ezzy’s design goal with the legacy was to develop a pure and simple sail while at the same time retaining the performance and durability that he demands in a sail.

By removing some of the extra features present on our premier sails, the legacy is sure to fit anyone’s budget. The smaller Legacy’s are wave designs, while the larger sizes are freeride.

The legacy tack fitting uses a removable D-ring, that can be replaced with our premier pulley. Optional mast pad, batten tensioner key and head extender can be purchased from our dealers or our web site.

"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

The Ezzy Hookipa Mast

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.

  • Love the two new colors, especially the green.

  • Jonathan

    Have a NP Fusion 6.7, looking for something when that gets overpowered. Was thinking 6.0 Cheetah, but now am thinking 5.8 Legacy may be better to prevent overlap. Which would be a better downsize. Sailing great lakes in Ontario and also in a harbor. Lots of chop, 20kt+ is when the 6.7 Fusion is overpowered. Should I get 5.8 Legacy or 6.0 Cheetah? Is there a massive difference between the two? Don’t wan to drop down from 6.7 and then be undpowered. Riding a 125L x-cite ride. After this purchase should I drop down to 5.0 for my NEXT sail?

    • ezzysails

      man, what a great question Jonathan. This is tough without knowing more about your sailing style. I grew up sailing the great lakes myself. I remember when things got windier than 6.0, the water texture started to get interesting for jumping. If you are into jumping a bit, I would suggest you go with either the Legacy or Tiger 5.8 or even a Tiger 6.0. If you aren’t interested in jumping as much, and are more concerned with having adequate power and control, then the 6.0 Cheetah is my favorite. The Cheetah is going to have more power and range than the same size in the Tiger. The Tiger is going to have a lighter and freer feel as it has one less batten below the boom. A jump from a 5.8 to 5.0 is perfect in my book. The jump from a 6.0 down…I think I would consider a 5.2. I hope this is helpful!

  • Erwan Couëdelo

    Hi, I’ve got an old Ezzy mast (430 rdm 90% carbon) that I use with my Ezzy panther II 6.0.
    Do you reckon that I could use that mast with a legacy/tiger 5.2?

    • ezzysails

      thank you for the message Erwan. You can use the 430 Ezzy mast with the 5.2 Legacy or 5.2 Tiger. If your mast is old and looking “tired” you might consider getting a new one. Nothing is worse than breaking a mast! Just check its condition and consult your local shop if you need their opinion. The Ezzy Mast specs and curve has not changed, so it is a great technical set up.

  • Erwan Couëdelo

    Is it ok to use my old 430 rdm Ezzy mast (90%carbon) with a 5.2 legacy?

    • ezzysails

      yes, absolutely. The bend characteristics have been the same since our initial mast release

  • Michael Buckley

    Hi David, from Perth in West Aus. Have been getting out after about 3 years off and remembered what I was missing out on…unfortunately my old 5.8 Ezzy Carve (1999 ?) is looking a bit worse for wear so it might be time an upgrade (s). Could you recommend a couple of sails and mast combination mainly for flat water freeriding – have a slightly older Starboard Carve 111 and weigh about 80 kgs the last time I looked. I’m definitely no pro, so need something easy to use + can take a bit of rough treatment (don’t need top of the range but am prepared to spend a few $ to get quality gear). The 5.8 has been good for most conditions I sail in – a recommendation for something similar and sail for lighter conditions would be much appreciated, thanks, Michael

    • ezzysails

      welcome back Michael! Stoked to hear you are eager to get back out. A sail that would match up nicely to the 5.8 Carve would be the 5.8 Tiger. It has a similar design concept, but it is a much lighter and more durable sail than the Carve. The Carve had monofilm, and the Tiger has all vinyl or laminate material instead. From a 5.8 a very nice sail to consider would be a 6.5 Cheetah. You could rig both on an Ezzy 430cm mast. You can see the sails and specs on our site at http://www.ezzy.com. I would also strongly suggest you reach out to your local shop for personalized service! Hope this is helpful!

  • Michael Buckley

    Thanks a heap … Very helpful and definitely will have a chat to the local dealer…cheers

  • Alexander

    Can I use 460 SDM mast with Legacy 5.8?

    • ezzysails

      absolutely! The newer Legacy models come with a longer head strap, so you can simply extend the top cap. No problem using a SDM with any of our sails as well.

  • Alberto Lovison

    hi just a quick question for a customer of ours. what are the difference between legacy 6.5 and cheetah 6.5 (2016 models)? the price is different is huge. i read on the webside that materials are different as well. can you please give us some more details. thank you very much for your help. br, alberto lovison (Detour SURFandSNOW.it – Peschiera del Garda ITALY)

    • ezzysails

      great question Alberto. There are many differences.
      The Legacy is based upon the Cheetah and Tiger designs from 2012. The Cheetah is the very latest in seam shaping and profiling.

      The Legacy uses slightly less expensive materials in sections of the sail. The battens aren’t all RBS. The Cheetah has all RBS. The Cheetah has much nicer printing, and more technical pulley, mast pad, and sail bag.

      I believe the Cheetah is a much more “serious” sail. The Legacy is more of a recreational sail.

      • Erwan Couëdelo

        I understand that the legacy doesn’t have RBS battens. What difference does it make on the water compare to a tiger (5.8 in my case)?
        Are there any other significant differences on the water? Thanx.

        • ezzysails

          The Legacy has some RBS battens. The overall construction quality isn’t as high as the Tiger. I think the Tiger will last longer overall and handle more wear and tear. Performance would be extremely similar in a head to head test.

  • Lee Newell

    I would like to buy a one of your older sails. I would like a suggestion on what size, and what one I should get. I have a 115 letier starboard. I have a 4.2 hot sails Maui right now and it’s too small for me. I sail on flatter water and I like high winds like 20+ knots. If you could get back to me that would be very appreciated

    • ezzysails

      thanks for the message Lee. This is one of those situations when your local windsurfing shop will really come thru with their regional expertise. They can really fill you in with some good information. Where do you live? I can help get you in touch. From the sounds of it, a Legacy 4.7 might be a nice place for you to start.
