Luca Falso blazing on the Ezzy
Thank you for sharing this Luca! Keep pushing!
“Please find attached three pics of me with my Infinity and my GPS results for my two fastest days.
Name: Luca Falso
Nationality: Italian living in The Netherlands
Height/Weight: 1.75m/86 kg
Home spot: Oostvornse meer
Equipment: Tabou Manta and Ezzy sails (since 2006)
Windsurfing since 1985: mainly freestyle and freeride; slalom since one year and speed since one month.
Session June 17th
Conditions: Wind ZW 25-30 knots, hard chop Equipment: Tabou Manta TE 69, Select SL7 35, Ezzy Cheetah 6.0
Max speed 31.2 knts (see GPS results)
Description: the board was way too big due to the nasty hard chop but it was the smallest one I had; I rigged the sail with 2 cm downhaul beyond the maximum recommended setting and the outhaul at the maximum: I was overpowered but always nicely in control, the sail felt very light, friendly and controllable; I have not missed one jibe and I closed a nice and fast one hand 360.
Session June 23rd
Conditions: Wind ZW 22-25 knots, choppy Equipment: Tabou Manta TE 69, Select SL7 39, Ezzy Infinity 7.0 2011
Max speed 32.3 knts (see GPS results)
Description: I was overpowered but my goal was to go faster than my previous session; I did my fastest run at the very beginning when I set the downhaul 2 cm beyond the maximum recommended setting and the outhaul at the maximum; later I pulled the downhaul 2.5 cm more but I lost 2.5 knts of speed as the sail was over downhauled; it was very hard work but worth! “
