looking for these features:

light wind planing
easy to learn water starts
easy jibe carving
robust skin and not easily damaged

Think I answered my own question. The Go 131 looks like a board that will help me get into the straps, water start, and getting carving jibes. I can already plane pretty readily and have done 1 water start so far, and am pretty comfortable getting hooked up to my harness but haven't been able to get both feet into the straps yet.

Any thoughts on this board? I'll probably go new but if there's a used market out there for these, I wouldn't mind saving a buck or two.

seems more advanced though one feature I like is the tufskin surface on the Go
