Starboard Rio– Easy Gliding, Easy Planing
The ideal board to get a newbie into windsurfing and start learning!
The combination of a long tail design with bat-wings, thick boxy rails, low nose rocker and a flat deck make it glide better than a conventional beginner board yet with more stability. The long tail design also makes the Rio the board that transitions the easiest into planing without having to overcome technical difficulties.
The Low Nose Profile with wide shoulders and parallel rails increases gliding speed and stability. With its contour deck and inboard footstraps, you can reach the footstraps easily and in total comfort.
