After a successful year on the PWA World Tour, with a superb 5th place in Gran Canaria and an end of year ranking of 16th, Dario Ojeda (F2, Simmer, Mormaii, DaKine, MFC) has just landed himself with a shiny new board sponsor in the form of F2.
F2 are a brand that’s stood the test of time, and is still here today after more than 20 years of research and development, proving that they can still produce world class windsurfing boards.
"I’m really stoked to join F2. I think they’ve always been a great company with a lot of experience having been around since the birth of the sport. They are pushing hard to create a fresh new side of windsurfing, with new faces, who are going to take our amazing sport to the next level", said Ojeda.
"My plans with F2 are to continue doing all of the PWA wave events and also to work on the boards so we can improve them even more. We want to give the rider the ability to feel free on the boards so that they can sail with ease and create new moves that change the history of windsurfing. F2 are also going to allow me to bring my ideas to the table so that together we can find the perfect shapes to suit all kinds of styles and needs. With the support of Danny Aeberli, I’ll be able to fulfill all of my goals and more importantly, I’ll have someone that listens to my ideas, supports them, and guides me in the right direction."
F2 manager Danny Aeberli said of is new acquisition:
“We are really happy to announce our new F2 International team rider, Dario Ojeda. He is definitely one of the most talented new-school wave riders and showed the world this in Gran Canaria with his performance there in the summer. For us at F2, it’s a great step forward to be able to work together with such a talented and motivated sailor.
A huge welcome to Dario and good luck for the forthcoming 2010 season.”
