Ezzy Taka 3 Windsurf Sail

The new Taka 3 is an evolution in wave sailing feel and freedom. This sail manages to give ultimate control in both the waves, and in the air.
With it’s smooth power load it allow you to really do what you want!


Taka 3 Review:
This is my third set of Taka sails. After falling in love with the smooth feel of the Taka 1 the Taka 2 was a refind version that seamed to have and increased wind range in both the bottom end and top end of the sail. I often use it on it’s low wind settings, and could tweak it through out the day depending on the conditions and water state.

My new Taka 3’s have only had a few outings but  got to say these sails feel great. This new sail seam to have a even larger range than the previous model, I’m 88kg to 90kg and normally hang on to larger sails to get me going especially in on shore mushy south coast conditions. However I was amazed at how my 4.7 pulled my on to the plane in relatively low winds. With this in mind you may want to tweak your quiver a bit to suit this new huge wind range. In the top end these sails perform really well with no unstableness at all!


Ezzy’s rigging calibration couldn’t be easier to get it right first time. This definitely speeds up you rigging time, I can rig these sails super quick with the softer luff panel and easy tuning cords at the boom end.


To summarise, if your looking for a wave sail that will get you going quick, and have almost a ‘’no weight feel’’ when gybing and wave riding…. this could be a winner for you. It also doubles as my go to sail for summer windsuping!

What Dave Ezzy says:

On Maui is a shed full of Taka-3 prototypes that we will neither sell nor sail. Influenced by both the scientific method and the intuition gained after 35 years of making wave sails, we tested and tested and re-tested tweaked versions of last year’s sail trying to make it better. A bad prototype taught us what not to do. And we followed the ones that felt great until we had a sail worthy enough to carry on the “taka” tradition of being a lightweight, easy-to- depower, 3-batten wave sail. We called it the Taka-3.

The most obvious of the technical changes made to the Taka-3 is the strategically placed scrim luff panel for a softer, more forgiving feel. “Oh behave, baby!” The Taka-3 does just that in strong wind: no flutter, no movement of draft–just a well behaved, super smooth ride.

But what really sets the Taka-3 apart from any other sail is the awesome low-end. We found ourselves moving around on the 4.5 when other sailors were sinking on 5.3’s. Just set the downhaul to the “min 2” with our calibrated downhaul gauge and use the shortest outhaul guide cord to make the Taka-3 ride like a sail one or two sizes bigger. You get the power of a larger sail with the control of a smaller sail. What more could you ask of a wave sail?

Funny you should ask… We did too, and we focused our R&D on finding just the right amount the profile should adjust during wave riding. The Taka-3 luffs when you sheet out, so you can smoothly kill the power in a cutback and push harder on your board. When you drive into your next bottom turn, the Taka comes back to life with power.

We meticulously cut, stick, and sew the Taka-3 in our very own factory. After sewing, we rig, calibrate the downhaul gauge, and thoroughly check every sail before we slip it in the bag.
