- 12 January 2011 | Windsurfing
The windsurfing industry and governing bodies are trying to improve everything they can to confirm the sport in the 2016 Olympic Summer Games, to be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. With kiteboarders looking for their own Olympic ticket, it's time to defend windsurfing's place in the event.
Neil Pryde, the official Olympic Windsurfing supplier for the 2012 London Olympic Games, has been evolving the quality of the RS:X equipment and concept. That's why the brand is making several improvements in the sail, board, boom and extension.
Using the latest technologies, Neil Pryde has produced a lighter and cheaper board with Formula Windsurfing performances. Also a new updated more powerful rig, with a bigger wind range and featuring an extremely colorful fresh new look.
The boom has increased torsion rigidity and the extension is more efficient and more durable. The RS:X Evolution concept will be showcased in RS:X Evolution Grand Prix's held in major World cities such as Singapore, Hong Kong, New York, etc, where top 10 RS:X Athletes will race a new course format that is more dynamic and attractive.
The first stop will merge with the RS:One World Tour, in Singapore, on January 17th.
