Starboard Rio M Longtail - – Easy Gliding, Easy Planing
The unique longtail design of the 2019 Starboard Rio series focuses on easy learning and easy planing qualities to foster rapid progressing and a fun learning experience. The Medium size and volume is ideal for riders under 200 lbs. The longer shape provides greater directional traction and easy gliding associated with longboards. However the unique extended Long Tail has a combination of both batwing shape and tail rocker. The fin box is also set further forward, combining these characteristics allows the rider to experience easing onto a plane and more rig steering sensitivities verses conventional longboard designs. These Rios not only plane earlier, their noses won’t tilt up as riders transition on to the plane easing riders to avoid learning to overcome this hump in transitioning technique.
The Rios feature a contoured deck shape to help riders gravitate to the inboard footstrap positions developed for this board design. Its wide nose combined with boxy rails improves stability and allows for a flat deck area around the mast track for easier uphauling and light wind sailing. Large EVA soft deck area provides excellent grip and comfort where needed. The Rio's have a Clipperbox daggerboard system that's both efficient and easy to use. Fitted with Starboard’s Clipperbox system with easily replaceable and ultra durable lips and a new daggerboard with integrated handle for carrying the board under-arm. The daggerboard itself is extra soft in the tip for more performance and lift.
