THE EASY CHOICE
The go-to board for entry level windsurfing and schools.
We consolidated the Rio and Rio Long Tail into one range with three sizes: S, M and L. They have long outlines with parallel rails and wide shoulders for more glide, more directional traction and more stability. 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.
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.
