PostForum: Windsurfing Discussion   Posted: Fri Oct 08, 2021 8:58 am   Subject: Ezzy Customer Service... WOW !
I elbow punched an 11 inch tear in my 5.8 Ezzy Tiger on a fall in surf. Amazingly, the tear didn't spread on my 3 minute sail back to the beach. Yesterday I emailed info@ezzy.com with my plan to make ...
