Our Heritage

Designed for the water, battling the wind.

NeilPryde Windsurf | Waterwear & Accessoires has been a legacy in the wind water sports for nearly 50 years. 

What makes the brand so unique is not only the constant innovation and cutting-edge technology that flows into each single product we make, it is for its most the passion that we share with our founder Neil Pryde for the sport itself, knowing the elements water as well as wind like no other brand.

At NeilPryde we design to win; each product is made with the ambition to help athletes as well as recreational riders get the most out of their session on the water, having the most fun out there and still staying warm and safe at the same time. 

A Lifestyle

You might ask, what makes us at NeilPryde most proud? In the end it isn’t only our premium quality products, it is more so the happiness we see in the faces of our customers when they make use of our products, put them to test on the water and in wind, rig a sail, get all suited up in their new wetsuits and go out there to battle the seasons. It is the victories that we see our team riders bringing home, and the unique way they bring out the very best in our product.

NeilPryde is more than a Windsurf and Waterwear brand, it is a lifestyle...
