Default RE: does the Go go?

I have a go 170 but i am only 63kg, just like to know whether you guys had any problems water start, while beach start is easy, i found that because of the extra volume, it is harder to water start than a smaller board. Am i right?

Maybe a little since it sits higher in the water, but the sail is much more important.

I just bought a GO bd after an autumn of light winds, my carve wasnt that flash in light winds, I have found the GO great with a 7.5 sail in light winds, it can way outperform the carve

The GO170+TR115 guy here again.

I do not think the jump from 139 to rocket 115 is that big. I myself jumped from 170 to 115.

If you just can have one board, the 115 is a good choice in my opnion for your weight. I think you are playing it safe and wise.

For a two board quiver, you would do great with the GO and a 80-90-100 litre freeride/freestyle.

Btw, I sail faster and better over the chops with a seat harness on the GO. The seat really helps to pull down the big sails(6.5 and up) and genererates mast foot pressure, making the ride smoother, giving room to sail more aggressive. I change to waist harness on smaller boards.

Again, just my experience.
