2012 Starboard Rio Sport
Bridging the gap between planing boards and light-wind longboards, blurring the line between stable entry level boards and progressive freeride boards, the Rio S, M and L are the boards that cover the widest scope of users for all-wind conditions: windsurfing for everyone, every time and everywhere.
The long and wide shapes of these boards are fast with a smooth glide in light winds. For advanced riders, the longer, narrower shape combined with the inboard heel-recesses and a strong daggerboard allows the board to power upwind off the leeward rail.
The Rio M and L were updated in 2011 and are planing earlier and easier. The Rio shapes are longer in the nose: the boards are stretched out to glide faster and transition into planing mode smoothly and effortlessly. As the wind speed increases, the Rio S, M and L's extra wide tail provides the early planing, the high speeds and the high performance racing fun that have made it a best seller in the all-wind windsurfing category.
