MauiSails Sign Ellis

The MauiSails team is now complete and ready for action with the recent signing of Dan Ellis from the UK...

Dan has been part of the strong UK contingent for the past few racing season’s, winning the Asian Windsurfing tour, and finishing strongly at PWA Race events.

Ellis now spending the majority of his time on Maui during the off season and will be assisting with testing, and will be able to join in the Team’s vigorous training sessions on Maui.

'I’m really excited to join the MauiSails Team.' said Dan speaking from his new base in Hawaii.

'At the end of last season I packed up all my belongings in England and moved to Maui so I could train and be in the best possible environment for success.

At today’s PWA events you need the best possible equipment to make it to the top, and MauiSails provides that.

The chance for me to work alongside Barry Spanier and Phil McGain, two of the best race technicians in the sport, is what excites me the most.

They have been making world beating sails for longer than I’ve windsurfed and I’m looking forward to joining them at the beach, testing and making a contribution to the development.'

Dan’s crucuial first event on MauiSails will be in May at The 2008 PWA World Cup in Ulsan, Korea.
