Pozo’s airtime junkie joins Simmer Sail’s 2009 line up.
Hailing from the Canarian wind capital of Pozo, Spanish wave sailor Dario Ojeda has recently signed a deal to sail for Simmer Sails in 2009.
Ojeda recently had the chance to put his new foils through their paces at the Cabo Verde PWA World Cup where he finished up in 21st position.
On signing for simmer, Ojeda commented:
“I am really happy to be part of the Simmer team. I’ve been sailing the Mission X at Cabo Verde and also at home in Pozo, it suits my style of sailing perfectly! I am stoked to be working with Tomas Persson, all the Simmer team and also with my close friend and travel mate Jonas Ceballos. It’s going to be an awesome year.”
Chief Designer, Tomas Persson on Dario:
“Dario has a great knowledge and understanding of modern windsurfing. He is perfect for our team. His radical and explosive style together with his excellent product understanding makes him a valuable asset in our r&d program.”
Simmer team captain Kai Katchadourian on Dario:
“Dario will bring some fire to this team straight away. You don't get much more fire than with Dario. It sure shows on the water. He is clearly one of the main players at Pozo along with his close friend Jonas Ceballos, and it’s also clear that he intends to shake it up wherever else he sails. The fact that he is a really well rounded sailor is why we signed him.”
