The following post is the latest press release from Neil Pryde, Ltd.
====================================================

- 60 DAYS AND COUNTING

      Having only been on the market for 60 days, the RS-1 racing sail is
fast becoming the top ranked racing sail on the planet.

      All around the world, Neil Pryde Team Riders have been putting the
sail to the test in competition against some equally tough competitors, and
with the results starting to come in, it looks as though the RS-1 is up for
a killer season.

      The RS-1 began the season by dominating the Asian Windsurfing Tour
(AWT) with the all of the top 5 sailors using RS-1's.

      "I was constantly shocked how fast the sails would go up wind," said
AWT Tour Champion Robbie Radis. " In one race I had a bad start but on the
second upwind I easily passed both Matt and Kevin Pritchard".

      In Taiwan, Antoine Albeau flattened the rest of the field to take the
title convincingly. Jimmy Diaz, who finished the event third, was quick to
voice his contentment:

      "After the performances in Saipan and Taiwan, any doubts about the
sails have been eliminated. They're extremely competitive and I'm really
looking forward to more competitions on them."

      Jimmy's wishes were soon granted at the Mid-Winter Championships on
Cocoa Beach in Florida. With a total of 192 competitors it was by far the
biggest event in the U.S. and a perfect opportunity to showcase the RS-1.

      Diaz came within a point of winning the overall event, narrowly losing
out to Micah Buzianis:

      "Last year I wasn't even close to Kevin Pritchard or Micah Buzianis.
They're currently the number 1 and 2 racers in the world. Now with the RS1 I
'm beating them in individual races and have fallen just a hair short of
beating them at the entire event. To me this is a huge testimony to the
performance of the RS1."

      Across the Atlantic Antoine Albeau has recently demonstrated the
awesome speed of the RS-1 in the first stage of the French Pro Tour. Having
taken first place at the Formula event, Antoine has no hesitation giving his
approval to the sail:

      "This is by far the best sail that I've used in my life. For example
on the slalom sails it's like you're always sailing downwind, even when
you're pointing back to the beach. I couldn't be more happy with the sail"

      Moving on to Italy, the RS-1 recently made its racing debut at the Yes
Spring Cup on Lake Garda. Local Neil Pryde Team sailor Andrea Cucchi won the
event against a fleet of high profile competitors from 10 European
countries, with Team Pryde veteran Patrice Belbeoc'h finishing in third.

      "Anyone who had doubts about our commitment to being number 1 on the
water should think again!" adds Mr. Neil Pryde. "With this kind of success
across this many events, and with the sail in the hands of this many
athletes it's clear the RS-1 is a world class racing sail."

ART sails were ahead of their time Construction was excellent just poor
distribution and no Marketing... It was a REAL shame. Yes, we have to many sail
companies but when a great one hits the can you can't but sigh

I am not sure if you guys know this or not but the Neil Pryde RS-1 was
designed by Neil Pryde's new sail designer Robert Stroj. If you are an ART
fan you will know that THIS is ART's sail designer from LAST YEAR.  Hence,
the similarity.

BTW, that is why the sail is called RS-1, the RS stands for Robert Stroj.
