NEILPRYDE RSX BOARD

The Objective

To develop a board that offers exciting Formula Windsurfing planing performance, while still performing well in non-planing, light-wind conditions. The board must have a huge wind range, from 3 to 30 knots. It should be suitable for all potential conditions of Olympic and qualifying regattas: low wind finishes, entry into narrow harbour ports, races in disturbed water/air conditions. The board should start to plane as early as possible.

The Design

Carbon Sandwich construction for the best lightweight to performance ratio. Carbon sandwich on the deck provides a stiffer and faster feel.

Narrow outline allows the board to be easily set on the rail for good up-wind performance.

Longer water line with more parallel rails helps directional stability and is more efficient through the water.

Convex shaping of the board's tail reduce the wetted area.

Single concave bottom shaping in the nose further emphasises the bite of the rail for tracking upwind.


The Features

I) Sub-Planing Conditions, Dagger-board Down (up to 8-10 knots)

In upwind conditions, with a little breeze with the dagger-board down, the rider can pump the board onto the rail for good tracking upwind. On the rail, the "Convex Tail" allows the board to be rolled with the gusts and swells. Side footstraps help to give the rider more stability and control. 

In downwind conditions, with the daggerboard up for going downwind, the board provides good stability for pumping (if necessary).



II) Planing Conditions, Dagger-board Up (8-10 knots & above) 

In planing conditions, the board behaves largely like a Formula Windsurfing board, thus giving much faster performance and a more exciting ride. 

In downwind conditions, with the adjustable mast track set to the back, the board sails both with good speed and a very steep angle.


"Convex Tail" shaping improves control while on the rail and tracking upwind. Off the rail, the rounded tail (on the water line) allows for a smoother water flow.


Traditional "Formula" shaping of the nose of the board promotes greater lift for earlier planing. Helps the board to sit slightly higher on the water and as the water flows directly underneath the nose, the board is pushed onto the plane.


"Flat panel to V" shaping in the tail section of the bottom of the board further promotes lift in planing conditions. "V" shaping helps the board to sit on the water in strong wind / rough water conditions.


Adjustable mast track for optimal trim in all conditions.
THE FIN

Used in one-design International RS:X Class Association events. At these events the NeilPryde RS:X fins supplied with the board, 66 cm for men & 60 cm for women, are the only fins that can be used. For more information on the RS:X Class Rules, please visit the ISAF website.
