RE: Difference between Starsurfer M and GO 129
The reason I recommended the Carve or GO is because I have ridden the Carve 133 and liked it, and I have heard good things about the very similar GO 129.
On the other hand, I have only heard complaints about the Starsurfer.
The starsurfer is the same shape as the Kombat / Aero, which, according to some people on this forum, doesn't plane well for it's size. It's also heavier than the Kombat / Aero which probably reduces it's planing ability more. But if you usually have lots of wind, and want a board that has good highwind control for it's size, the starsurfer might be ok. Hopefully someone from starboard will answer your question, too.
