A message from British slalom maestro, Dan Ellis…
In 2009 I fully left the shores of England and relocated to the slightly warmer island of Maui, married my sweetheart Jessie and set to work building a solid foundation so I could make a full assault on the PWA Race Tour in 2010. 2009 was a great year and a welcome break from the years of travelling. However, not racing on the PWA Tour has made me hungrier than ever to compete against the best windsurfers in the world, which is exactly what I will be doing with a full comeback this year.
The year off gave me the space to look back over my past seasons highs and lows and see where I need make changes in order to step up to the next level. I decided that I would only go back and race if I had the best equipment, so I know that when I get to the start line I have nothing left to do but race and joining Mistral have given me the boards to do just that. I will not have an official sail sponsor and have bought the sails I think are the best.

With the help of Kurosh Kiani I’ve put together this little teaser video:
