THE RIOS ARE THE ULTRA-STABLE CRUISERS FOR BEGINNERS AND PROGRESSING WINDSURFERS, DESIGNED FOR LIGHTWIND CRUISING AND FAMILY FREERIDE FUN.

Like the Starts, they guide novice windsurfers from their first step onboard to easy planing in the footstraps. Ultra-wide, the Rios are extremely stable to make learning a breeze and planing easy. With its daggerboard and full deck EVA, the Rio offers lightwind family-cruising fun in total comfort. As the wind picks up, the Rio's fast bottom shape design delivers plenty of excitement for everyone to enjoy.

It's the ultimate all round funboard to share and enjoy.

Special shapes details include extra voluminous rails for maximum stability and a wide tail for easy, early planing. The user-friendly Clipperbox daggerboard system is totally sand-proof and the footstrap insert options cater for the total beginner through to the advanced rider.

What's new? For 2007, the new Rio M and L models feature a larger Clipperbox Daggerboard 570 that replaces last year's smaller daggerboard for improved upwind ability and stability.
