Starboard Go 2019
What's new in 2019?
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 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 first board.
The GO 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 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.
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.
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 Fin:
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.
The new generation Drake Slick footstraps are made with FSC-certified, sustainably sourced and plant-based Yulex foam. With 85% natural rubber content, COsup2; 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.
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.
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.
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.

It 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 easy to practice my gybes and tacks. It 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.
