“The Go board 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.” Jason Beach KB owner.
The launch of the first GO board back in 1998 started the history of modern
windsurfing. Derived from development on the first semi wide race boards,
the Go brought a new world of accessibility to windsurfing.
The very first EVA covered full sandwich boards were hailed by the press as
“saving the sport of windsurfing”, and these immediate best sellers
redefined progressive performance freeriding.
The Go further became the starting point of the first Starboard Formula
boards. As Jim Drake pronounced that wide boards will truly become popular
the day they are evolved enough to win a World Championship. In 2000 his
wide designs took all the first 6 places in the Formula Worlds.
“The Go, the revolution that made windsurfing accessible, allowing beginners
to become autonomous within half a day. Others adopted it as an everyday
board. Others went as far as to take it out for back loops!” Planchemag,
France, June 2004.
The Go’s cater for all, including beginners who need wide widths for extra
stability, directional stability, and comfort from the full EVA deck.
Combining these features with a crisp lightweight sandwich construction with
shapes that bring impressive speed, early planing, extra comfort and truly
amazing jibing qualities, the GO is the one for all.
* Full sandwich construction makes the GO boards stiff, crisp and light to
sail, with a responsive and exciting ride.
* Multiple footstrap positions transform the board from an entry-level tool
to a high performance freeride blasting machine.
* Racing developed cutaways and flat tails reduce wetted surface to deliver
speed, sharp acceleration and improved trim.
* Full EVA deck with graduated thickness to minimize weight.
* Thin, heavily tucked-under rails in the tail, combined with a rounded,
pinched outline, enabling truly excellent jibing qualities – full planing,
powerful and fast jibes that will blow you away.
