Of all of the Ezzy Sails, the Taka is the one that is the easiest to go vertical into the lip. The Taka is the easiest for landing backloops. And the Taka is also Dave Ezzy’s sail of choice for doing double forwards and wave 360’s. The magic of the Taka is the 3 and 3/4 batten shape that goes neutral when the sail luffs. This means that the sail goes completely flat when sheeted out in a cutback or when it passes through the eye of the wind in a backloop.
The Taka is the sail that Dave rides at Hookipa and at Jaws, so it needs to be strong. You can trust the Taka when mast-high waves are breaking on my head. The Taka can also be ridden extremely full–at the MIN. 2 downhaul setting–for light-wind sessions. This means that the sail has the power to get you out and onto the waves, but because the sail goes neutral so easily, it still is very maneuverable for wave riding.
The Taka is for hardcore wave riders who don’t want to compromise.
