As expected NeilPryde have followed JP in announcing the signing of the 25 year old Brazilian World Champ. The pics have been floating around the internet for weeks but now its official.

And it looks like we will see some new sails from NeilPryde too. Kauli was clearly seen using a 4 battened prototype and we now learn that this will be his new signature sail "The Fly", due for release later this year. It seems his development impact on NeilPryde will be huge, bringing many new and exciting ideas to the design table.

For more information check out his own dedicated page on the NeilPryde website.

Stay tuned for the upcoming video interview where we will find out exactly what went on at the negotiation tables and how Kauli feels about all his new toys.
