I guy I sail and SUP with regularly is in between SUP boards. On Saturday he was catching waves paddling a 160 liter Go (and doing well!)

For those who ask if you can paddle a windsurfing board...

with that board, just make sure you go with a really smaller fin.

Good point. Jeff SUPs it with a sawed off fin.

That is AWESOME.

Jeff gets much better rides with a non-sup on real waves than I get with a real sup on non-waves.

i tried it on my older Go.
then dropped quad futures in it.

fun because of the stability, but a beast to haul around.

my 8 year old is supin on a Cross 117....pivot turns and everything

Was out in 4-7 foot waves on Sunday with my friend SUPping his Go. Check out the video of him at the bottom of this post:

http://www.peconicpuffin.com/the_peconic_puffin/2013/11/l-road-best-conditions-in-a-long-long-time.html

I asked Jeff if he was ever planning on buying a 'real' SUP board again (he broke his last one is how the Go situation started). He said "yes, but my choice is going to be influenced by the Go. I want short and spinny."

He catches waves all day long on this thing. Anyone interested in SUPsurfing who has a Go should just pick up a paddle and find a short (or sawed off) fin.

On my SPID trips, since I couldn't bring a surfboard in addition to 3 windsurf boards, I always surfed my smallest wave boards, and in those tiny waves, it almost worked OK, but I like flat deck surfboards.....like the GO.
Because I don't have great balance, I need at least a 69 wide board of at least 140 liters to SUP and ride waves.

Selling my Kona One, 70 cm. wide, 220 liters, footstraps, centerboard, full deck padding, used it for SUP & windsurfing many times, only 8 months old. See "Longboards" here.

How many times are you going to post here pitching the sale of your Kona One? Seems to me that you can't get rid of it fast enough. Now that's not a criticism of the board, it's more of a reflection of you and our style.
