The new Neil Pryde RS:X to be used in the Olympic 2008 windsurfing events, will be racing soon.
A handshake between ISAF President Göran Petersson and Neil Pryde marked the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding on the production and supply of the Neil Pryde RS:X at the ISAF Mid-Year Meeting in Stockholm, Sweden. The final details on the key issues of price control, production, distribution and availability for the new board were earlier in the day approved by the ISAF Council, ISAF´s final decision making body.
At the 2008 Olympic Sailing Competition in China, the Neil Pryde RS:X will be supplied equipment. With it´s wide hull and centreboard the RS:X offers competitors a combination of sailing, with the Formula style alongside an excellent upwind performance, providing stimulating windsurfing for the competitor and spectator.
The first 500 boards have been allocated to an ISAF Approved Distribution so that there is equitable worldwide distribution based on representation at the 2004 Olympic windsurfing event. The 14 Neil Pryde Worldwide distributors will handle the distribution of the boards, with a target production of 1,535 boards by the end of the year.
