“The Starboard Go changed the sport of windsurfing. You can now have one board that can work for beginners and excel in the intermediate stages. The beginner boards we had to learn on
years ago where heavy, 10-12′ long’ and narrow, making learning to windsurf very frustrating. The Go is neither of those things, making it a real game changer.”
– Jason Beach, Kannon Beach owner and founder.
The Starboard Rio is the go-to boards for entry-level windsurfing and intermediate windsurfing.
The combination of the Long Tail design with Bat-Wings, thick boxy rails, a low nose rocker and a flat deck make the Rios glide better than conventional beginner boards yet with more stability.
Thanks to the Long Tail design, they’re also the boards that transition the easiest into planing.
