The Cheetah is the fastest, easiest no-cam sail we’ve ever built. The Cheetah’s deep, wing-like profile is achieved by sewing shape into the panels, giving the Cheetah the look of a molded sail. This makes the draft significantly more stable and locked in. So, you get power, speed, and control for fast straights and easy jibes.

David Ezzy has been making Sails for over 35 years—waves sails, speed sails, slalom sails, foil sails, freeride sails. This wealth of experience combines in the Cheetah to create a fast, easy free ride experience that starts when you unroll the sail.

The Cheetah sets up in minutes with rigging gauges that remove all the guesswork from tuning. Just downhaul until the gauge lines up with the bottom of your mast.

Ask David Ezzy how long a sail should last, and he says “forever.”

The Cheetah represents a lifetime love of windsurfing and making sails...so you can go fast.

WHAT MAKES THE CHEETAH DIFFERENT?

The Cheetah is built with broad-seeming that gives it a deep belly of shape that mimics what cambers do to a sail. This means that the Cheetah is stable and powerful, but yet it is camless and easy.


QUALITY CONSTRUCTION

Living and testing on Maui, we have learned how to make sails that survive the the elements. The Cheetah is a freeride sail but it is built with the wisdom of over 35 years of making wave sails. There is no monofilm that will quickly crack and break. The spectra-X is a light and tough solution that will survive longer.

he Cheetah is built with reinforced X-ply, ripstop scrim-X, and a Weft-Stop anti-rip sleeve cloth. Every seam is glued and covered before being sewn. David Ezzy owns his own factory because no other factory can produce the quality he demands.


CALIBRATED RIGGING

The Cheetah is a fast, easy freeride experience that starts when you unroll the sail. The Cheetah sets up in minutes with rigging gauges that remove all the guesswork from tuning. Just downhaul until the gauge lines up with the bottom of your mast. Each and every sail is rigged and calibrated in the Ezzy Sails factory.

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.



A portion of every sail we sell goes to help schools in Sri Lanka.
