2022 PWA Slalom World Champion - Maciek Rutkowski - joins NeilPryde for 2024

The 2022 Slalom World Champion, Maciek Rutkowski (NeilPryde) has announced he will be teaming up with NeilPryde for the 2024 season in a bid to win his second world title.

After completing the move, Maciek added: “I grew up idolising the NeilPryde team! I actually wanted to be a freestyler like Josh Stone or a wavesailor like Jason Polakow, but being from Poland I had no choice but to go into racing. For me NeilPryde is the strongest brand in windsurfing and I feel super grateful and honored to join such an illustrious team. It goes without saying that the goal is to win together, but I’m also ready to contribute in any way possible. Having spent a few days on the sails I’m as impressed and stoked as that kid back in the day and can’t wait to take them racing around the world!”

NeilPryde also commented: “For 4-5 years now Maciek has been one of the very strongest racers out there, culminating in a World Title in 2022. Maciek’s energy and passion for the sport are unmatched since his childhood days, which makes him an asset not only on the racecourse but also on the beach, promoting our sport with all his passion. His knowledge, experience and talent make him an incredible racer to add to our team. The Pole has been hard at work in Tenerife and we can’t wait to see what he will be achieving on our gear. Welcome to the team Maciek!”
