CONTOURED DECK SHAPE
With the contoured deck shape the board remains the easiest board in the world to get into the footstraps. Thanks to this as the rider progresses and moves back on the board, windsurfing faster and with more and more power in the sail, the feet line up naturally with the inboard footstrap positions.
LONG TAIL DESIGN
The Rio features a long tail design. It allows the board to transition easy and smooth into planing without having to overcome technical difficulties. The long tail design also allows for better glide in light wind conditions.
The extra wide section of the tail is relatively thin, forming what we call Bat Wings, first used in the Phantoms. This width also helps improve glide and directional traction by allowing the designers to draw more parallel lines. It also creates more planing power.
Retractable dagger board that clicks in and out without tools. Use the daggerboard for more balance and to go upwind easier. Remove for more speed and control in planing conditions. Fitted with Starboard’s Clipperbox system with easily replaceable and ultra durable lips and a new daggerboard with integrated handle for carrying the board under-arm.
The Rios are supplied with a Drake Shallow fin. This compact fin delivers as much power and directional traction as possible in the shortest fin. The ideal fin for learning.
