The friendly fun board that makes any paddler feel pro
The perfect introductory/ beginner paddle board for first time paddlers who want to paddle fast and stay dry. A progressive, versatile shape sporting a big bottom concave and boxy rails for unmatched stability, speed and glide potential.
The GO board range accommodates all rider weights and abilities with sizes that range from the longer & faster 12’0” to the more maneuverable 10’2” length size option. The bigger sizes offer the most stability from the wider outline, while the shorter narrower boards are suited for lighter riders offering greater tracking and maneuverability. It’s one of the best stand up paddleboarding experiences you can have on flat water or in light wind & choppy conditions.
WHY WAS THE GO VOTED 10/10 BY SUP BOARDER MAG
ALL ABOUT EASY PADDLING
The GO is all about making it easy for you to get into paddle boarding. You can paddle fast, while feeling comfortable and staying dry, securing your ultimate first time SUP experience.
STABILITY AND SPEED BALANCE
The looks of a classic surf shape with performance and stability DNA from our award-winning race boards.
WIDE TAIL AND NOSE
Provides an entirely smooth and balanced trim for efficient paddling over distance. You can step back for a snap turn or count on the nose area for added stability in chop.
DEEP CENTER CHANNEL
Creates a flatter middle rocker for the most efficient and long-lasting glide. Similar to our award-winning All Star race boards.
BOTTOM SIDE PLANE
Creating a stable platform for unmatched balance. It’s really the catamaran concept with volume further out from the middle enhancing stability.
Larger sizes are perfect for yoga and fitness.
2-IN-1 SHOULDER CARRY STRAP & PADDLE HOLDER
• Velcro loop to attach your paddle.
• Easier to carry as the board simply hangs effortlessly on the shoulder and free up your hand to multi-task, hold your coffee, or phone.
• When not in use, the bungee sits flat on the board so it doesn’t drag in the water.
(Comes with Tikhine model and can be purchased after-market for Lite Tech and Rhino)
THE BOXY RAILS
Increase the stability of the board and limits water flowing onto the deck, keeping feet and gear dry, essential in cooler climates.
FLAT STANDING AREA
For extra comfort when paddling and doing yoga.
BUNGEE TIE DOWN
On the nose for storing your gear.
FAR BACK FIN BOX POSITION
Improves tracking and reduces the amount of times you have to switch the paddle from side to side when paddling. The further back the fin sits in the box, the more directional stable the board will become.
On the nose to attach accessories like a GoPro, phone holder, compass or GPS

|Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP) Categories|
|All Around / Recreational / Planing Boards |
All-Around boards offer a traditional planing bow, rounded and are generally 10'-12' in length and 30"-36" in width. These boards are great for beginners, but also great for any paddler who is not looking for paddling long distances or racing environments. Planing boards offer stability for yoga or fishing.
|Touring / Race / Distance / Displacement Boards |
Touring boards have a displacement bow, pointed to displace water as you paddle. Displacement boards are generally 12'-14' in length and generally narrower than a planing board. The displacement bow is more efficient and requires less effort to paddle longer distances. There are also hybrid displacement boards which are wider and thicker that provide more stability in a displacement hull.
|Hard Boards versus Inflatable Boards|
|Plastic (rotomolded) Boards |
These boards have a durable exterior, least expensive but very heavy. These boards are great for when multiple users will be using the board and likely to be dragged or dropped. These boards do not have a center core, and over time may bow in the center or become water-logged.
|Hard Boards - Most common boards |
There are various Hard Board construction so weights may vary also. Construction may include Fiberglass/Epoxy, Graphite and Carbon. These boards are great for individual users who will be able to control the usage of the board.
|Inflatable Boards |
There are various Inflatable Board constructions, but weights do not vary as much. These are very popular boards. They are quite durable, great for families and guests, traveling and storage is not really a factor. These boards generally come with a storage bag and pump.
