Rio XL
Hi Roger

I see SB have snuck a new board into the Rio range, the XL. Do you know anything about it?

Hi rod_r
I do not know a thing about the Rio XL.
Looks very "retro" (old style) to me.
I shall ask Tiesda and Starboard HQ about it and report back here.
Thanks for the heads up!

rio xl update?
Roger, any word on the RIO XL? I'm looking forward to getting some new info on this board. Why such a secret, or is it just a case of bad marketing?

Hi Teddy,
I do not have a Rio XL to try, and I'm not going to the photo shoots and board tests lately, so I
really cannot give you any sort of opinion on this board.
I will ask Tiesda You (Starboard designer) about this board and see if he can send more information
which I can pass along to you.
I'd rather not comment on something I'venot sailed and not even seen.

Hi Roger,

Just wondering if you've had a chance to dig up anything on the RIO XL.

Roger 16th December 2010 05:44 AM

Hi Teddy,
I emailed Starboard HQ and they said they are "working on it" but I just looked at the
Rio page under products, and it has not been updated yet.
I started the ball rolling, we will see what they come up with.
Sorry I do not have better news!

There will be an update to the Rio XL info on the website sometime today.
If not, I have some new info I will try to put up tonite!
Thanks for your patience!
