GO WINDSURFER 175
A variation of the iconic GO series with more glide in non-planing conditions. The GO Windsurfer 175 also features 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. The shapes are carried-over, with their wide nose, long cut-aways, optimized profile and efficient rocker line. This together contributes to more glide, traction and ease of planing
A best-seller and our recommendation as a windsurfer’s first board.
The GO Windsurfer 175, Using a highly efficient and low rockerline, with an even volume distribution, 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 GO Windsurfer 175 use our Clipperbox daggerboard system that clicks in and out and can be removed without tools, by positioning the daggerboard at 45 degrees and pulling up. The water-sealing rubber lips are ultra-durable and can also be replaced without tools. Learning to windsurf with a daggerboard or centre fin makes it easier to stay upwind while providing additional roll stability.
FULL EVA DECK
The deck has a large soft EVA finish, comfortable for your feet, knees and elbows. You get the grip without the cuts or rashes.
The EVA deck is raised above the edges of the board to allow the water to flow freely around the board and jibe smoothly without drag.
The GO Windsurfer 175 feature a nose carry handle, making them easy to carry for kids.
They also feature a center carry handle for easy carrying under arm by an adult.
Every second GO board has an inverted color scheme. By inverting the colors we can save EVA that otherwise would have been waste. A more sustainable approach brings awareness, life and variation to the range.
DRAKE SLICK FOOTSTRAPS
The Drake Slick footstraps are made with FSC-certified, sustainably sourced and plant-based Yulex foam. With 85% natural rubber content, CO² emitted during the manufacturing process is reduced by 80%. The remaining 15% of synthetic neoprene is kept to improve UV resistance.
Carefully sourced with the smoothest fabric for a comfortable feel.
The Go boards feature an additional 6mm thick padding at the footstraps, bringing added comfort to the full EVA deck.
In the Starlite construction, a significant step up from the standard construction typically used in this price category: lighter weight, stiffer construction, tougher against impacts and with a crisper, more high- performance feel on the water. It uses 0.6mm Australian pine wood with glass fibers to combine premium technology and a quality finish in a value package.
