Look what Ely has been up to.

A friend of mine, Ely, is on his semi annual pilgrimage to the motherland: Maui. I don't have the time to travel that he does. So I tend to spend my winters in drysuits. Ely never sails in a drysuit. He's smarter than that. He goes to the Dominican Republic, Maui or some other warm, windy, and wavy place. Ely; the world traveling Waterman; makes friends where ever he goes simply by sharing his stoke. You may remember him from the Niel Pryde ad a few years back.
Or from his photos

Or you may of seen the video of him sharing a wave with Kevin Prichard.

If you've ever shared a session with Ely... you'll remember.

I saw Ely in a heavy wetsuit once (the day I met him). He did not look natural in it. But he was smiling!
