Starboard Go Windsurfer Starlite 2023
One For All
The iconic GO boards kickstarted the modern windsurfing era by introducing the widestyle concept. 22 years later, the GO boards continue to help thousands of progressing and advanced windsurfers through their first steps and their first carve jibes. Today’s GO boards feature the most advanced shapes, new sizes and an all-new Starlite construction. Let’s GO.
THE GO – ONE FOR ALL
Starboard’s popular GO family is fully updated for 2023. Six exciting new designs share the same optimised rail outline as our hugely successful Carve evolution, adding stability and confidence, while enhancing jibe capabilities. Our iSonic’s World title winning Gravity Control System contributes to an even better allround performance in the 2023 GO design; lowering the centre of gravity feels more locked in, stable and ready to accelerate with every gust. A more vertical rig position encourages better control, improves jibing performance by providing more rail pressure and ensures more grip, power and control while carving. The optional Drake Shallow centre fin helps you stay upwind and track in a straight line; great for intermediate conditions and progressing riders.
THE GO WINDSURFER – YOUR FIRST WINDSURF BOARD
Often a great choice for a family with a range of riders or conditions, the integrated daggerboard ensures more confident windward performance, enabling better upwind angles and less drift in lighter conditions, but smoothly folding away to allow for a faster, more responsive ride as soon as planing conditions (or rider experience) are suitable. Explore the coastline in lighter wind conditions using the daggerboard, or enjoy the thrill of carve jibing a responsive board with daggerboard retracted neatly inside the body of the GO Windsurfer. The 165 size is the ideal entry-level and intermediate board for smaller riders, featuring an elongated shape for excellent traction and glide before planing. The GO Windsurfer 175 and 185 are best sellers for first time windsurfers, delivering exciting versatility from light to windy planing conditions. The 2023 shapes are all new and feature a more lively, responsive ride and intuitive jibe. Wider nose, long cutaways, optimized profile and efficient rocker line all improve your ride thanks to more glide, stability, traction and ease of planing.
