    Ha, Ha, sorry, I’m silly! I’ve just seen that Lion 8.0 doesn’t exist!

        anyway, do you think that my mast is appropiate for the sail?

        • ezzysails

          You mentioned that your mast is SDM 75% carb├│n, constant curve (62% flex base, 75% flex top). Ezzy mast bend curves are tip: 75% to 79% and base: 62% to 65%…so your SDM is within our tolerances. It should work great.

    Hello, I am Federico,

    for the first time I want to windsurf slalom. I’d like a powerful sail for windsurf with light wind up to 17/18 knots. My table is 130lt JP slalom.

    Better Cheetah or Lion? Which size? I am 100kg

    Thank you

    • ezzysails

      thank you for reaching out! I struggle with telling people which size sail they should get, because it really depends upon your skill. I would suggest you work with your local sailors and local windsurf shop for advice. Personally, I like the Cheetah model, as it is easy to rig and de-rig. The Cheetah offers great low end power and easy sail rotation too.
      Perhaps a 7.5 or 8.5.

    I am considering the 9.5m Lion sail in my quiver, but am unsure about which Ezzy mast to buy i.e. RDM or SDM.

    In the recent past I have tended to use RDM masts up to 5.7m and SDM thereafter – the supposed logic being that SDM masts are stronger and make a better aerofoil on larger sails.

    Please can you explain the relative merits of RDM vs. SDM in the case of the Lion 3.

    Many thanks

    • ezzysails

      great question.
      It is difficult to make an RDM at 490cm length. The engineering becomes challenging. We are proud of our RDM 490 performance and strength…but we can’t get it as light as some of the SDM 490’s out there. There are some incredible SDM 490cm masts options for your sail.

      The advantages of going RDM – you can interchange with our other masts…it is easier to thread and unthread the mast in the sail too. Also, the strength of RDM masts is incredible.

      Hope this is helpful!

    Hi, so i am just about to bite the bullet and order my new cheetah but i am stuck on size choice, I have a panther 5.8, 6.5 and am replacing a goya 7.5 which i was often underpowered on and found the 6.5 to 7.5 too close. so am i best with a cheetah 7.5 or an 8 . I read about the great wind range of these sails so I am thinking the 8 is the best way to go? any advice I would be grateful for before I order, there is no way i can try before buy as my dealer is too far away (I am in New Zealand) Thanks

    • ezzysails

      great to hear from you Dean. Excellent question too. To me, once you get up above 6.5 it is a good idea to ratchet up your scaling a bit. In other words, consider going from your 6.5 to the 8.0 Cheetah. Bigger jumps between sails makes it easier to determine which sail to rig. It also encourages you to get into the tuning range of each sail. In theory you will also spend more time on each sail and get to know how to dial it in better. Hope that helps!

        Certainly does, as always thanks for the quick and useful reply Tim.

    hi,i have 2 ezzy sails cheetah(6m and 7m) and i want something smaller.my board is a tabu freeride 115lt.which sail to choose around 5m?i want to resemble more freeride than wave cause i do not have here big waves.which is better?

    • ezzysails

      I would encourage you to look first at the Zeta. It is a 5 batten design, and a little fuller than the Elite.
