BS: You’ve released this clip about some of your finest moments during the PWA Aloha Classic, can you tell us what made this event so important to you?
Ezzy: I learned how to compete in the 2014 Aloha. Competition windsurfing is a mind game. Up till now, I was hit or miss. But in this Aloha, I sailed a ton of heats and gained a little more wisdom with each. I competed against many of my heroes–like Levi and Polakow–which took away some of my nervousness because I didn’t care if I lost. And when I beat them, I gained confidence. Coming out of that event, I have loads more contest knowledge and a bit more confidence.
