RS:X and Olympic Windsurfing: Neil Pryde’s View

Very shortly Boards will bring you all of the information regarding the RS:X, the future of windsurf racing and the Olympics from the press conference with Neil Pryde himself and other members of the NP team.

But first, we cannot help notice that throughout these Games the performance of the athletes has at times been overshadowed by the possibility that windsurfing will not return as an Olympic sport. Whilst, we all want to know what is happening next, which current RS:X windsurfers will turn to kiting, if we may see any of them on the PWA tour and their views on the decision, at times looking to the future I feel took away from the tremendous accomplishments of all the Olympic racers, particularly the medalists. So, before we bring you Neil Pryde’s view and inevitably the focus returns to reinstating windsurfing in the Games, lets take a little longer appreciating and admiring the success of the RS:X competitors.
