Bridging the gap between planing boards and light-wind longboards, blurring the line between stable entry level boards and progressive freeride boards, the Rio S, M and L are the boards that cover the widest scope of users for all-wind conditions: windsurfing for everyone, every time and everywhere.


RIO S, M, L

The long and wide shapes of these boards are fast with a smooth glide in light winds. For advanced riders, the longer, narrower shape combined with the inboard heel-recesses and a strong daggerboard allows the board to power upwind off the leeward rail.

New! The Rio M and L are all-new shapes that are planing earlier and easier. The new shapes are longer in the nose: the boards are stretched out to glide faster and transition into planing mode smoothly and effortlessly.

As the wind speed increases, the Rio S, M and L's extra wide tail provides the early planing, the high speeds and the high performance racing fun that have made it a best seller in the all-wind windsurfing category.

The Rio S, M, L special features


  • Contour Deck- makes it easy for everyone to progress into the straps, and easy to rail upwind for advanced windsurfers.
  • Allgaier daggerboard - the new Rios now come fitted with the classic All Gaier daggerboard system. The All Gaier system is a guarantee of reliability and convenience. Extremely easy and smooth to operate, it can last for decades without the need for any special maintenance.
  • A wide and long shape with a wide tail : stable at slow speeds, fast to glide and transitions smoothly from non-planing to planing.

  7. Multiple insert positions offer tuning options for entry level/ intermediate/advanced riders
  8. Extra-wide tails offer easier and earlier planing
  9. Contour deck makes it easier than ever to get into the footstraps
  10. Tufskin construction
  11. Allgaier daggerboard system
  12. Side-cuts improve fin drive and release
  13. Tail cutaways improve speed and acceleration

RIO XL

The Rio XL is our longer addition to the Rio range, offering the most most glide due to its length, most light-wind speed and most longitudinal stability. It has good sideway stability for beginners due to its 82.5cm width and boxy rails , but not as much as the Start M and L.
This makes Rio XL the ideal choice for schools that base their methods on classic gliding speed from the start. First-time windsurfers get gliding right away, and at the same time they'll get hooked to the sensation. This is not a board for planing, but a dedicated entry level board.

The Rio XL special features


  • Nose hole allows the board to be towed or safely locked
  • Armour Tech construction: lighter and stronger than polypropylene blow-moulded plastic boards
  • Extra Long shape offers maximum light-wind speed and glide for beginners
  • All-white finish makes the Rio XL easy to repair and maintain.
  • Moderate width offers sufficient lateral stability for beginners
  • Allgaier daggerboard system
  • Shallow 22cm tail fin to help keep the board tracking straight yet easy to manoeuvre
