Neil Pryde Steps on the SUP Scene

As the title says, Neil Pryde got involved in the SUP game. We are not talking about the company, but about the man himself. A few days ago, Mr. Pryde went out on the waters of beautiful Islamorada, Florida, to enjoy a nice SUP session on Imagine Surfer board. Although Mr. Pryde is the owner of Neil Pryde Ltd, company which operates Cabrinha, Neil Pryde Windsurfing, JP and the recently acquired Imagine Surf, he has never actually windsurfed, kiteboarded or stand up paddled.

Not because he doesn’t like these sports, but because he is heavily involved in competitive yacht sailing and doesn’t have the time to learn the secrets of other sports. But it seems that SUP, one of the fastest growing sports on the planet, attracts him, if he had the courage and interest to step on a SUP board and start paddling at the age of 73.

Check him out in action in the video below. Mr. Pryde seems to have great skills and it is no wonder if he grows fond of SUP and will start competing in the SUP Word Tour in the future.
