#25 - Graham Ezzy „There are rules. But Im a local” - The Windsurfing Podcast

Graham Ezzy is Hawaiian windsurfing royalty. Son of sail designer and brand owner David Ezzy, Graham was pretty much destined to be involved in the sport one way or another. He did however get a Princeton degree and interviewed for a finance job in New York. Why he decided to change course, what the sport means to him, how he decides which wave is his, and much more on the new Windsurfing Podcast.

Welcome to ‘The Windsurfing Podcast’ this is where we are going to dive deep into the world of professional windsurfing. World Champions, legends, shapers, activists, industry members, media people… they will all get grilled by Maciek Rutkowski – a professional windsurfer himself, PWA race winner, podium finisher, and, by his own admission, the sports biggest fan. Sit back, grab a drink, and enjoy an exclusive look into the minds of windsurfing’s most interesting people.
