He developed a lot of helpful tools to give the endconsumer the chance finding the right down- and outhaul. Kevin Pritchard, who has joined the team of Ezzy after he has left Gaastra and the Worldtour circuit in winter 2010/2011, did an interview with his boss. David Ezzy talks about how he started windsurfing, how he came to Maui at the beginning of his career and how he started to work on the sewing machine.
