The 9’6” x 31″ GO Surf was designed for lighter riders and especially for women up to 95kg, offering a board that’s lighter to carry, has good glide and stability, and yet is totally nimble and responsive to turn in the waves.
The design of this model drew reference on other much loved Starboard designs, scaling down an Avanti outline, as well as using the rails and bottom shape of the popular Wedge range.
At 31” wide, the outline and flat deck gives solid stability to paddle at ease, yet the pulled in tail and thin rails make it very responsive to manoeuvre through turns.
The length gets into waves early and is fast to paddle back out to the sets, while still agile to swing the nose around in classic longboard style. For those looking for a board that can cruise, surf and is easy to transport, the GO Surf ticks all those boxes.
DESIGNED FOR SURF AND CRUISE
The rounded nose outline is fairly full to give a combination of stability and good nose riding performance. The round tail has enough area to balance the glide on flats and yet is still responsive when stepping back to turn.
THE FLAT DECK
The flat deck utlises the full width of the board, giving you a very stable standing area for when its choppy. This flat deck makes the board feel like a wider board in stability.
Offers you good paddle speed for cruising, yet has enough kick in the nose to prevent nose diving, and a moderate tail kick to lift the nose through turns. The nose riding performance of the Go Surf really surprised us, feeling super stable so you can ride toes on the nose.
• The rail thickness is fuller in the mid-section to provide float and cruising speed.
• The rails are taken from the popular Wedge range and require less pressure to engage on the wave face.
THINNER NOSE AND TAIL
The nose and tail have thinner rails to reduce both the swing weight through turns and to give you more bite to engage the rail through turns.
Has a vee throughout for easy to rail to rail transitions, and turning the board from the mid point.
On the nose allow you to store gear when cruising. The bungee rope can be removed when surfing to freely ride the nose.
(Only with Lite Tech and Limited Series)
5 FIN OPTION
Offers good drive and hold through turns, while the quad offers more release and speed. Recommended to switch to a single larger fin for flat-water paddling. 170 center fin and 4.7” side fins are supplied with the board.
2-IN-1 SHOULDER CARRY STRAP AND PADDLE HOLDER
• Velcro loop to attach your paddle.
• Easier to carry as the board simply hangs effortlessly on the shoulder and free up your hand to multi-task, hold your coffee, or phone.
• When not in use, the bungee sits flat on the board so it doesn’t drag in the water.
(Comes with the Blue Carbon and can be purchased aftermarket for Lite Tech and Limited Series.)
THE BEST VALUE FULL CARBON CONSTRUCTION WE HAVE EVER PRODUCED
- Top grade 150g Biaxial Carbon wraps the entire board, joining with an overlap on the deck and bottom to create flat stringer, increasing the total breakage strength.
- 2 skins of durable fibre glass form a sandwich around the biaxial Carbon, protecting the carbon by dampening and absorbing the impact.
- The combination of twin T-stringers deck and bottom work together to increase the overall total breakage strength.
- Multiple reinforcements in the standing area, nose and tail increase impact resistance.
