Well... Now my appreciation for Neil Pryde is close to non existent...

"Developing countries bla bla bla"
Developing countries can get into sailing through kites as well.
Single design can be implemented in Kites as well.

What a load of bollocks.

If you want to hurt Neil Pryde then stop buying Cabrinha gear!

It's expensive and he's admitted in an interview he uses the profits from his kitesurfing sales arm to subsidise other areas of the Pryde Group I.E windsurfing and RSX.

I personally don't care whether it's in or not. What I do object to is an indesicive ISAF/Olympic Committee mismanaging something they've had 4 yrs plus to work out and a commercial company defining Olympic policy through pressure.

+1. I agree. Let's boycott Cabrinha & buy smaller brands.

ps: the "developing countries" argument is bollocks, in an other interview he said that his focus customers market (for Neil Pryde windsurf) are CEOs and 40 y.o.

I'm guessing there is no paper trail. If they can say 75% is needed to revote then devote when 68% votes it makes no sense anymore. It is a farce.

It's all "money under the table".
I have a feeling that some of the reps in the different committees are spineless.
