Umi, one of windsurfing’s most elite media collaborations, has recently released its latest clip from the 2009 PWA Pozo Event. Filmed in stunning HD quality, this clip combines jaw-dropping action with behind-the-scenes interviews from top names such as Jonas Ceballos, Kauli Seadi, Victor Fernandez, Thomas Traversa, Dario Ojeda, Alex Mussolini, Ricardo Campello and the event winner Philip Köster.
