Yesterday we showed you a first time sneak peak of the new 2014 Goya Windsurfing boards; the Goya custom pro and the Goya One Freewave. Today we have a sneak peak of 2 new sails from Goya that perfectly suit the atributes of those boards. Goya Windsurfing have a world wide reputation for making bombproof, world class wave sails and improving on them each year is a massive ask! But Goya manage to do it year after year and with a brief look at their new sails, things are looking promising for 2014!
With the bar already set so high making better sails will be a tough ask. But with Goya, the quality of their sails is never questioned and their new offerings will be no doubt mind blowing out on the water!
The 2014 Goya Banzai Wave Sail is probably one of the most eagerly anticipated sails of this year! With the previous Banzai models being such a hit with amateur and pro riders alike the 2014 Banzai from Goya Windsurfing will have to be awesome! The Banzai was and is Goya Windsurfing’s first and only 4 batten wave sail, the lightweight and immediate power have been terrific attributes that have been sailed to the edge of wave riding performance by team riders like Marcilio Browne and Levi Siver. The Banzai is all about the low, locked center of effort which delivers incredible light wind performance as well as high wind control. The Banzai is for generating as much lift as possible in a smaller sail size. Because of the tight leech and central draft profile, the Banzai provides extremely quick planing, plus quick and responsive handling in maneuvers. This means you can take a smaller sail onto the water when wave sailing, EPIC! The 2014 Goya Windsurfing Banzai will carry on this purpose and we cannot wait to get it out on the water!
Jason Diffin had this to say about the 2014 Banzai:
“It is lighter, more flexible and has a better forward feeling in the hands, plus the new Banzai offers better high wind control in all sizes. A new size of 5.5 has been added. The Banzai has explosive low end power and a very direct feel. All wave and wave style sailing conditions are a blast with this sail, from down the line waves to onshore waves and freewave sailing. The Banzai is a top level progressive performance sail delivering ultimate power waveriding and jumping. Very well suited to mulit fin boards.” And BRAWZINHO adds “I have been riding the Banzaia lot flatter at Hookipa, which helps to de-power, but it still holds a shape and drive forward when the strong gusts hit. For on-shore conditions I have been riding it more full with amazing power and early planing. This sail is very easy to move from one side to the other, backside to frontside.“
Another Sail that has been ever popular and proven the world over is the Goya Eclipse Wave Sail. Dubbed the power wave sail in the Goya Windsurfing range, the Eclipse is a full 5 batten power orientated wave sail that is an awesome all rounder and easily the best sail in the range for massive airs! A personal favourite for team rider Levi Siver, the Eclipse offers the perfect blend of low end power and high end control ideal for Levi’s highly technical style and big carving top turns! The Eclipse comes in pro and pro mono Goya Windsurfing constructions and when in the pro construction is literally bombproof! If you were gonna windsurf your way into Armageddon this is the sail you would want in your hands! A real favourite among amateurs and pros for big airs and power on tap the 2014 Goya Windsurfing Eclipse is a truly exciting prospect and will surely be one of the most popular sails of 2014!
Jason Diffin has this to say about the 2014 Goya Eclipse:
“Lighter and easier high wind handling in sizes up to 5.0. Sizes 5.3 and larger put an emphasis on quick stable power alongside easy handling. The Eclipse has great low end power, a massive high wind range plus unlimited speed potential. 5 battens make the Eclipse a very stable sail with easy handling when very powered up. All wave and wave style sailing conditions suit the Eclipse just as well as freewave and freestyle sailing. The Eclipse gives stability and range, along with a highy durable construction. Well suited to single fin and multi fin boards.”
