The trend is to have less battens. The challenge is to maintain the same drive and stability. The answer is a refined blend of experience, skill, talent, technology and ultimate materials. What you see is yet another range of meticulous sails that stem from the same pedigree which saw Marcilio Browne to win the 2013 PWA at Klitmoeller, Bernd Roediger and Junko Nagoshi to win the 2013 AWT at Hookipa respectively and Levi Siver to win the 2013 PWA at Hookipa as well as the 2014 AWT at Pistol River and Pacasmayo.
Less is more. Less but better. We’re excited to see what less battens can do in terms of more champagne and more podium time. Feel free to take a bottle to the beach while you inaugurate your own Fringe, or Banzai, or Eclipse, or Guru, or any one of our new sails.
Goya sails are famous for their ultimate build quality, combining light weight, crisp feel and outstanding durability. Jason Diffin evolves and improves the Goya shapes and constructions constantly, driven by his own research and passion as well as that of our worldwide team and customers.
We take pride in not only delivering outstanding function, but equally elaborated form. Product and Graphic Designer Björn Zedlick works closely with both riders and staff in creating the look of each Goya sail as well as the brand as a whole.
Jason Diffin: “The all new Fringe is a lifting type sail that is best used in a smaller size on a higher volume board. It’s an incredibly light yet very stable sail that is a joy to take into radical new school wave maneuvers and elegant down the line surfing alike. Because of its light weight the Fringe makes for a great beginner sail but don’t be mistaken, it works equally well for heavier riders in hard core conditions, and handles well for them because of it’s super light weight.
No compromises have been made in its build quality simply to achieve weight goals. The light weight is achieved through a combination of superb materials and clean design, feeling light when new and staying that way as the sail cycles through the hours of prevailing loads and shocks, getting you out there more often and keeping you out there longer.”
The Banzai is a PWA World Cup winning wave sail that’s equally suited to double loop training as it is to casual weekend sailing. Take the new one for a spin.
