Been a while since I visited :-)
I've been on a Kona for the last year and a half but was always a little frustrated with its early planing capabilities with my largest sail, a 9.0 superfreak, so recently I traded it for a 2006 Go170 and an old F2 Lightning, to try to get the best of both sub-planing and planing worlds.
Looking at the Rio boards, they look quite interesting. How do they stack up against boards like the Go's? Are they like most hybrids, in that they are good at most things but not great at anything?
