Rio S, Planchemag (France), June 2010

“One of the great things about the board is its deck ergonomics, with its raised central-axis deck contour design that allows the rider to ride comfortably with his or her feet close to the centre line. In conclusion, this Rio S package is very versatile: it lets you ride from Force 1 to 5 with a very smooth and easy transition between non-planing daggerboard windsurfing into planing funboard. It is perfect for learning planing and windsurfing in the footstraps, learning to carve jibe and cruising for fun. It is the most stable, the most accessible board in this test. An excellent summer board for the family where everyone will find their need covered.”
