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.
A highly efficient and low rockerline and an even volume distribution 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.
The GO Windsurfer 165, 175 and 195 use our Clipperbox daggerboard system that clicks in and out and can be removed without tools. Position the daggerboard at 45 degrees and pull up to release. 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.

The Classic describes the rig package that uses a two-piece mast and a two-piece boom.
1.2, 2.0, 3.0: The 1.2 and 2.0 features a mini-mast that replicates the right stiffness and flex of a larger sail for these tiny sizes. Drastically lighter and perfectly adapted to kids.
4.5, 5.5, 6.5: improved sail design with a longer second batten, stiffer boom clamp and a more durable universal joint.
4.5, 5.5, 6.5: The compact version of the sail package. With its four-piece mast and three-piece boom, everything collapses into a small bag that’s convenient to carry and store. Improved sail design with a longer second batten, stiffer boom clamp and a more durable universal joint.
UPGRADED BOOM HEAD
The boom head clamp has been redesigned for a better fit around the mast, thus requiring less pressure to grip.
The lever is also slightly longer, stiffer and more ergonomic to allow riders of all ages and sizes to close the boom head easily.
BOOM CLIP WITH DOUBLE PINS
The boom clips with double pins are secure and durable. The boom end uses a loop-n-go system. Loop the rope through the sail and onto the hook. Pull the end and lock it in. Just like on the extension, correct settings for light wind and high wind conditions are marked on the boom adjustment holes to make rigging easy.
The Classic uses a two-piece reduced diameter 20% carbon mast and the Compact uses a four-piece reduce diameter carbon mast.
The RDM masts are more reliable and make the sails feel smooth and light on the water.
With the adapter collar, you get an SDM extension. Remove the adapter collar and you have an RDM extension: 2 in 1. The top adapter collar is a screw cap so it won’t get lost. This external lever clicks on in a snap: great for those who want to be able to release the rig from the mast foot and board without getting sore thumbs.
The R+SDM aluminium extension is included for the Compact and Classic 4.5, 5.5 and 6.5 m2.
The downhaul 3-roller hook pulley makes down hauling hassle-free. Downhaul line comes connected to the hook pulley for even faster and simple rigging. Just hook it to the grommet and downhaul all the way.
The mechanical universal joint is great for inflatable boards as it puts less stress than a conventional rubber joint on the board when the sail is lying flat in the water.
The SUP WINDSURFING Sails come with a bag made of a RPET 450D outer fabric layer made from recycled plastic bottles, in partnership with Waste2Wear. The bottles are chopped into flakes, washed, melted and extruded into yarns and then spun into a fabric. Between 30 to 50 bottles are used per bag. Bottles that now re-enter the market again, without risk of polluting the environment. Ripstop weaving technology improves wear and tear resistance.
The SUP WINDSURFING Compact bag is just 120 cm long
