After using the new Ezzy Freewaves in 5.8 and 5.2 quite a bit whilst out coaching in Rhodes and enjoying them so much i was itching to get out on the 6.3 which was back in the UK. The 6.3 had the same attributes as the other freewaves – smooth power delivery, very stable, light in the hands and an excellent tuning range. The fact that the sail has less shape than the 08 wave SE and 09 wave panther meant it was very easy for freestyle and for flipping in gybes. With the boom length coming down in both the freewave and the wave panther in the bigger sizes (6.3 to 5.2) they feel really throwabout.
Out in Rhodes my lighter riders and the freestylers who are part of Team Seasprite were loving the easy power and control through their moves and will definitely be slipping a freewave in to their quiver, alongside the panthers of course.
What also rocks is the new VTS which allows you to see exactly how to trim the sail and this is also present on the new freeride sail from Ezzy.
I am eagerly waiting for my production wave panthers now so i can test them out and enjoy them in full alongside my NEW RRD twinfins out in Baja. I am going there with solo sports for my first trip – excited is not the word.
