Starboard Rio The Starboard Rio is the go-to windsurf board when you are learning to windsurf. Their straight outline of the board provides good upwind drive ensuring a successful first day on the water. Their longer waterline combined with Long Tail Technology provides wonderful glide and easy, early planing. Once up and planing, the Rio windsurf board feels exciting and free as you push onto the contoured aft deck where the cutaways maximize planing pleasure. 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 Starlite construction is light with a nice crisp feel on the water. It’s ideal for the new windsurfer looking to buy their own progressive entry-level board. The Rio Rhino and the Rio Starlite have a soft EVA deck finish and two rows of footstraps: one row positioned for progressing riders and the second for full-planing performance. It uses 0.6mm Australian pine wood with glass fibres to combine premium technology and a quality finish in a value package.
Aerotech Motion Rig The Aerotech Motion Rig gives you high quality beginner gear at a great price! The Aerotech Motion windsurfing sail is composed of 100% x-ply for a lightweight durable rig. You have the option between two different sail/rig sizes to go with your sailboard; a 5.5m or 6.5m rig. Both sails options are slightly shorter than standard 5.5m or 6.5m sails which allows them both to fit on a 400cm mast. This is very convenient because you can have a bigger range of sails that will fit on the same mast. Cost efficient and saves space in your garage! A smaller windsurfing mast also help make the sail feel lighter and is easier to handle for the progressing or beginner windsurfer. The Motion windsurfing rig comes with the sail, mast, boom, uphaul, outhaul, mast base and extension.
