There's a new kid on the block; the airborne Pozo local Dario Ojeda E211 just joined the Simmer squad.
The young Spaniard didn't get off to an smooth start, when arriving at Cabo Verde for the PWA event he had some passport dramas and got put straight in jail, without passing go.
"To make a long story short, they locked me up in Praia police cell for one day before the Spanish embassy sent through all the necessary paper work and they could let me out to Sal. It was a frustrating time but now its all good and I'm amped to be here," Dario reveals.
"I am really happy to be part of the Simmer team. I've been on the Mission X here at Cabo Verde and also before home in Pozo, it suits my style of sailing perfectly! I am stoked to be working with Tomas Persson, with the Simmer team and also with my close friend and travel mate Jonas Ceballos E40. After Cabo Verde I'm going to the Fuerte Wave Classic for some more action. It's going to be a awesome year," Dario finishes off.
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 its 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."
