Neal learnt to windsurf when he was 7 and did the national racing circuit for years. The Isle of Wight is a prime wave sailing spot so as soon as the kit came along racing went out the window! He won the amateur nationals in 2000, and then did three years in the pro fleet top ten.
Kite surfing was an obvious progression and Neal switched to the kite pro circuit for three years. His real love is to get out in the waves though which led onto his latest pro title: In 2008 and 2009 Neal took the BSUPA British Stand Up Paddling National Title. He came 4 the in 2011, as well as competes in BKSA national wave kiting tour.
