Maciek Rutkowski con Neilpryde

di - 23/03/2024

La notizia che il fortissimo polacco Maciek Rutkowski, ex Campione del Mondo Slalom, aveva lasciato il suo sponsor storico Challenger Sails aveva colto tutti di sorpresa, e altrettanto sorprendentemente Neil Pryde ha appena annunciato l’entrata di Maciek nel loro team!

Neilpryde Windsurfing and Maciek Rutkowski are proud to announce the

collaboration between one of the fastest windsurfing brands in history

and a PWA Slalom Champion.


“I grew up idolizing the Neilpryde team, collecting VHS tapes and

catalogues, I actually wanted to be a freestyler like Josh Stone or a

wavesailor like Polakow, but being from Poland I had no choice but to go

into racing… like Antoine! Or my now friend Wojtek Brzozowski who at

the time just won a Formula World Title with the RS1. I won a Junior World

Title in Formula with the first Ultra-Cam RS:Racing in 2007 and that made

the dream even stronger. 17 years later I feel the same way – Neilpryde is

the Ferrari of windsurfing and I feel super grateful and honored to join

such an illustrious team. It goes without saying that the goal is to win

together but I’m also ready to contribute in any way possible. Having

spent a few days on the sails I’m as impressed and stoked as that kid

back in the day and can’t wait to take them racing around the world! It’s

gonna be a fun year!”


“Maciek has shown his potential in many ways over the past few years.

Since Covid he’s been one of the strongest and fastest racers out there,

culminating in a World Title in 2022. Maciek’s energy and passion for the

sport are unmatched which makes him an asset not only on the

racecourse but also on the beach, promoting our sport with all his

passion. His knowledge, experience and talent make him an incredible

racer to add to our team. The Pole has been hard at work in Tenerife and

we’re hearing he’s ready to challenge for the World Title once again. We

can’t wait to see what he will be achieving on our gear. Welcome to the

team Maciek!”
