Todays huge news is the Kevin Pritchard has signed with Ezzy Sails. The implications of the move are just as big, as KP will be quitting racing for at least a year. According to windsurfing US, his plan is to take a back seat from competition, focus on other parts of windsurfing. Video work, brand marketing and mostly just enjoying the sport and getting the stoke back. Read his mini interview here.
