The NeilPryde Wizard sail has been granted the Good Design Award 2012, the world's most prestigious global trophy for new product design and graphics.
Good Design is the world's most recognized and oldest design awards program, organized annually by The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design in cooperation with the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies.
"This is great recognition for the brand and the design team of Robert Stroj and Jamie McLellan who worked on the sail together with the 2011 Freestyle World Champion, Steven Van Broeckhoven", explains NeilPryde.
Good Design covers new consumer products designed and manufactured in Europe, Asia, Africa, and North and South America.
The NeilPryde Wizard sail is the "ultimate sail for new school freestyle riding. More power, more pop, more air. Easy to handle, early planing and a lot of drive. You lead and it will follow. Works like magic".
"The increased curve in the upper luff gives good power and sail body tension while keeping the leech relatively tight and stable", adds Robert Stroj, sail designer.
