Starboard Rio

The Rio is all about windsurfing for everyone, everywhere and everytime. Its unique design makes it great for first-timers, great for some lightwind fun and for all-round windsurfing.
Whether you are an advanced rider or a beginner, whether you're looking for a simple light wind board or an all-wind board, the Rio is the easy choice.

It glides effortlessly - the Rio's extended length and slender rockerline lets it glide on a long waterline, giving it more longitudinal stability and glide in light winds.
It gets planing easily and quickly - with its wide tail design, the board transitions quickly and smoothly into planing mode as the wind picks up.
It's easy to learn on - with its relatively wide shape, the Rio is extremely stable, making it easy for beginners to learn the basics and progress from there. The long daggerboard makes the board track upwind.
It's easy to progress on - the special contour deck design with footstraps close to the board's centerline makes it extremely easy and comfortable to step into the footstraps as you progress and start to sail with more power in the sail.
It offers high performance for advanced riders - the longer, narrower shape combined with the inboard heel-recesses and a soft daggerboard allows the board to power upwind off the leeward rail.
