2019 NeilPryde Glide Wind
GLIDE WIND is NeilPryde's friendly, easy cruising and carving foil. Also suitable for waveriding in small waves and freestyle. With an early take-off it flies at low speed, allowing first time foilers to feel safe and comfortable. This all-round foil focuses on extreme stability, early flying and surprisingly even allows you to ‘zig-zag’ around while foiling.
Ever dreamed about foiling but felt that it might be too dangerous or difficult? GLIDE WIND is the perfect tool to get into foiling. It is designed with round edges on the wings for safety and engineered so that the lowest possible speed is required for take-off. We recommend using small sail sizes and any bigger freemove, wave or freestyle board as well as medium size freeride and freerace boards.
GLIDE WIND front wing shape prevents catapults and softens landings. Ideal for early foil stages from schools to clubs. GLIDE WIND is the foil that will finally let you experience the amazing sensation of foiling and see why it is the latest craze in watersports around the globe. Our innovative Powerbox system, the Aluminium mast and perfectly blended fuselage offer the best connection to most windsurf boards. Specifically designed to work on narrower boards (from freestyle-wave 100L to large freeride boards). We actually chose this board combination when testing and developing. GLIDE WIND creates foilers. This foil is easy and, most importantly, SAFE.
