THE GO 141, 151, 161

Progressive boards for improving beginners to advanced windsurfing. 
The 2019 GO shape carry-over from 2018. The centre fin box for beginner windsurfing is featured on all sizes, helping you keep upwind and provides extra stability as you learn to windsurf. Remove the centre fin, fit the plug in and you have a full performance freeride board. They also feature a center carry handle for easy carrying under arm by an adult.

THE GO WINDSURFER 175 AND 195

A variation of the iconic GO series with more glide in non-planing conditions.
Instead of a centre fin box, the GO Windsurfer features a fully retractable daggerboard that makes it easier to stay upwind and learn to windsurf, while being more versatile from light to windy planing conditions.

The shapes are carried-over, with their wide nose, long cut-aways, optimized profile and efficient rocker line. This together contributes to more glide, traction and ease of planing

A best-seller and our recommendation as a windsurfer’s first board.

ROCKERLINES

The GO’s zero tail kick rocker provides the easiest, smoothest entry in planing. Just hop on, sheet in and go fast. With reduced thickness comes a sharp, more race-like sensation and control in higher winds.

The GO Windsurfer shapes have a highly efficient rockerline, with an even volume distribution. This low rockerline allows the GO Windsurfer to glide smoothly and fast in light winds, with lots of longitudinal traction. It also lets the board accelerate onto the plane smoothly and more easily than before.

CENTER FIN/DAGGER BOARD

The GO 141, 151 and 161 features a centre fin that helps you keep upwind and provides extra stability as you learn to windsurf. Remove the centre fin, fit the plug in and you have a full performance freeride board.

The GO Windsurfer 175 and 195 use our Clipperbox daggerboard system that clicks in and out and can be removed without tools, by positioning the daggerboard at 45 degrees and pulling up. The water-sealing rubber lips are ultra-durable and can also be replaced without tools.

Learning to windsurf with a daggerboard or centre fin makes it easier to stay upwind while providing additional roll stability.

FULL EVA DECK

The deck has a large soft EVA finish, comfortable for your feet, knees and elbows. You get the grip without the cuts or rashes.

The EVA deck is raised above the edges of the board to allow the water to flow freely around the board and jibe smoothly without drag.

Serge Pillonel, head of ‘SW Junior Windsurf School, Western Australia
Sharing my passion of windsurfing with my children is an important part of my life. I need a board to take my daughter out with me that is stable, comfortable and that can also take speed. This way, we can go further, discover new horizons. I can then pass the same gears to my son, who can enjoy a free ride session full speed. The GO offers it all, to me it is the ultimate family board.


Santina Pillonel, age 11 

It’s always Fun to go out with my dad…, on that day we went closer to the outer reef in Gnarabup (Margaret River) and I feel now more confident to go there on my own.

Camillo Pillonel, age 14
The Go is a great board to learn to plane and it’s easy to practice my gybes and tacks. It’s very smooth with its soft deck and goes well with the 4.5 Starboard SUP windsurfing sail. The good thing is that I can share it with my sister and my parents.

CARRY HANDLES

The GOs also feature a nose carry handle, making them easy to carry for kids.

They also feature a center carry handle for easy carrying under arm by an adult.

DRAKE FREERIDE POWER

The GO boards are delivered with Drake Freeride Power CNC G-10 fins with a thin tip for more speed and better lift control. The upright rake and thick base provide maximum stability and traction for all sail sizes.

MULTIPLE FOOTSTRAP POSITIONS

The GOs feature footstrap positions for all levels of riders, from the entry-level inside positions to the outside expert positions.

YULEX FOOTSTRAPS

The new generation Drake Slick footstraps are made with FSC-certified, sustainably sourced and plant-based Yulex foam. With 85% natural rubber content, CO² emitted during the manufacturing process is reduced by 80%. The remaining 15% of synthetic neoprene is kept to improve UV resistance. Carefully sourced with the smoothest fabric for a comfortable feel and features strap-size indicators for easy adjustments. 

CUT AWAYS

The GO Windsurfer (175 and 195) have long, open cut-aways shapes for an efficient water flow, less wetted surface area and better lift control in planing conditions.
The GO (141, 151 and 161) has sportier cut aways, originating from the CarveIQ. They provide a fast acceleration and a better top end speed.

TECHNOLOGY

The GOs are available in our innovative 3DX technology. 3DX stands for three dimensional biaxial glass microsandwich construction. Both deck and bottom are wrapped in 45 degree biaxial glass fiber wetted out with an expanding foam epoxy cured under high pressure. The biaxial glass gives a crisp, stiff feel with flex for choppy conditions. The foam epoxy creates a 2mm skin thickness for a microsandwich effect: tough and strong.

LOOKING FOR A SAIL?

The Starboard SUP Windsurfing sails are a great addition to any beginner and progression board. It is light, powerful and is an excellent choice for entry level windsurfers because of its versatility and durability.
