2017 Starboard Go Windsurfer 175
“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. The Go Board is neither of those things, making it a real game changer.”
– Jason Beach, Kannon Beach owner and founder.
The GO Windsurfer is a variation of our iconic GO series.
Instead of a centre fin box, the GO Windsurfer has a fully retractable daggerboard that makes it easier to stay upwind and learn to windsurf, while being more versatile from light to windy planing conditions.
These new shapes have a lower, highly efficient rockerline. This low rockerline allows the GO Windsurfer to glide smoothly and fast in light winds, with lots of longitudinal traction. It also lets the board accelerate onto the plane smoothly and more easily than before. The volume distribution is also more even now, giving the board more longitudinal stability.
The large soft EVA deck is comfortable for your feet, knees and elbows. The grip without the cuts or rashes. It’s raised above the edges of the board to allow water to flow freely around the board and jibe smoothly without drag.
The GO Windsurfers also feature a nose carry-handle for easy transport by two people. They also benefit from re-designed cut-away shapes for a more efficient water flow, less wetted surface area and better lift control in planing conditions.
The GO Windsurfers have new foot pads with a new square grooving pattern that is more comfortable and durable. There are footstrap positions for all levels of riders, from the entry level inside positions to the outside expert positions.
They’re also fitted with the next iteration of our Drake Slick footstraps, which are narrower than the Drake Wave straps and feature size indicator tabs for easy size adjustments.
