The new Fringe Pro is quicker, more stable and more quiet than ever. This year, the foot batten joins the clew of the sail.
A bit of a story here. 3 batten wave sail designs have had foot batten configurations one of two ways. Back ends have either been above or behind the clew. The latter provides a more Freeride sort of feel, not the driven wave setup we were after. Neither was the traditional foot batten ending well below the clew.
The new Fringe Pro is different. Our foot batten connects right to the clew. With the outhaul basically attached to the foot batten, rider input to the sail is mega direct, quick, and easy. This means you get the full effect of attaching your outhaul to the clew point and the foot batten end at the same time. Quickness, lightness, directness, and this is the important point, you have full dynamic leech twist all the way down to the clew, to the point you are hanging on to directly. It’s a very cool feeling. Gutsy, deep sails that are flexible and opening properly, so that you can be comfortable and confident especially in breaking waves.
Still the Fringe Pro is awesome to freeride, being such a fun and light sail, easy to rig and maneuver.
The 2019 Fringe X Pro is virtually the same sail as the Fringe Pro, except for it’s window material being X-Ply film with spectra yarn reinforcements for maximum durability.
The 2019 Banzai Pro is holding tight to the concept overall, being Goya’s maximum modern, explosive power, technical performance World Cup wave sail. Introducing scrim film material luff panels for more depth and flex in the sails.
The Banzai Pro traditionally delivers tremendous tunability, from light downhaul load and a flexy feel to high downhaul tension, finer foil, open head feel with that coveted Goya Windsurfing loose leech.
Special size notes for the Banzai Pro include the beautiful new smaller sizes 3.15 to 4.2, which have become shorter, deeper, more stable and more flexible hot rod sails, quiet and comfortable even if you want to sail super strong winds, hold a line, and just enjoy. The boom on the 4.7 is a touch shorter and this size now really exemplifies the Goya Mix & Match rigging range mast concept. We don’t aim to make the sail feel as same as possible rigged on 370 or 400, but rather we desire the 370 to offer the full flex feel, and the 400 to give the best of that open head locked in feeling. The enormous rigging range and resulting conditions range is an unrivaled plus with these sails.
The 2019 Banzai X Pro is virtually the same sail as the Banzai Pro, except for its window material being X-Ply film with spectra yarn reinforcements for maximum durability.
The Banzai X Pro is for rougher days, riskier jumps, bolder experiments. It still feels at home in Hawaii, but this sail loves to travel, go places, get out and sail, for days, weeks or years.
Other than that this sail is holding tight to the same concept of a maximum modern, explosive power, technical performance wave sail.
The new Surf encompasses a comprehensive line of beginner and school boards, covering all needs in seven sizes. The Surf is a board that will get you through your first days, and that you will keep coming back to, even after you have mastered all the basics.
The Surf guarantees anyone a fun and fast entry into the windsurfing world, while still offering enough possibilities to progress and have fun for more advanced riders. Getting in the straps, jibing, trimming upwind or racing downwind is all possible on these boards. The bigger 160, 200, 220 and 260 feature a fully retractable Allgaier ® dagger board for maximized stability, while the smaller 115, 130 and 145 feature a regular center fin instead, for easy advanced learning.
The Surf covers a full beginner board range and the 260 is among the biggest beginner boards on the market. This entry level board is crafted to your family’s needs and school requirements. A new base insert in the nose of the deck allows you to attach a mini tandem rig for kids and is available on the 200, 220 and 260. The Surf features an EVA deck, keeping both your knees and your board in healthy shape. Further its bigger sizes feature EVA rails, while the smaller sizes come with clear rails.
All sizes feature an area coded deck, with the dark gray being your uphaul zone and early stages stance, and the white pad area representing your advanced stance and entry strap zone.
