Instant

THE CONFIDENCE YOU NEED TO PUSH YOUR LEVEL UP.

The new Banzai provides instant yet flexible power with very light handling alongside massive range in a wide variety of conditions. Equally at home in straight onshore wind and stormy surf, or brushed offshore reef break perfection, the Banzai will give you the speed, control and confidence you need to push your performance level up.

Power and neutral handling on the water, as well as easy, reactive, fingertip control in the air. The Banzai also excels in flat water maneuvers and chop jumps, and matches best with the Custom Powerwave and the One Freewave.

I'm absolutely happy with my new Banzais 4.2 & 5.3, that replace my old sails (3.7, 4.2., 4.7 & 5.3) because the trimm possibilities. I proved yesterday in Denmark with a lot of wind my old 3.7 but my 4.2 ist better. Now i can sail with 2 sails and 2 masts to replace my old 4 sails with 3 masts.
Amazing sails, lot of power but very easy to handle and esthetically a masterwork, beautiful colors in great combination, nice details and top-quality-material.
Thanks a lot for your shared passion

Hey guys

Loving both boards and sails this year. Boards are fast and so easy to
ride, top end is great on the sails - everything feels very
controllable!

Hello Jason.

5 years with Banzai and you did the Magic again.

2016 is the best Banzai you have made so far.

Tried the 4.5 yesterday in very gusty and demanding conditions. From 10ms to like 15/16 ms.
Dead onshore to cross offshore in just one session.

The sail just felt right in the hands from first seconds on the water.
Crisp, fast, with good power and easy depower - when on the wave.

It feels like a Banzai 2014 version with a good twist at the top end - very well done.

I have been speaking with 4 customers - who have sailed theirs as well
- all 4 are over excited by the feeling of the 2016 Banzai.

The simplistic design and bright colors are fantastic as well - it easy to understand, why the warehouse in Spain are sold out 🙂

All the best from Denmark.

Hi Jason,

Many thanks for taking the time to answer my queries, very much appreciated.

By the time i sent the email through Goya website i noticed that the Goya mast section of the website had been updated with all the information, i.e. the 99% and 70%.

All is clear now and good to hear you have no intention of changing the curve, why change something which clearly works.

I have the 90% in 430 and 400 …and just ordered a 370 90%…..I also believe that the 90% made in the US is way stronger than the 70% made in Italy.

Sailing in breaking waves 90% is the way to go.

I’m very very happy with my Banzai 2015…but couldn’t resist and pre-ordered a 5.5 2016, looks like you’ve added more dacron in luff to make it slightly softer in feel.

I use both clew rings when rigging as i sail more side on shore, side shore conditions ..it gives me nice power…if a bit overpowered, i use the bottom ring …and if sailing nice side off conditions (rare) then it’s lower ring.

It was hard choice between 5.5 and 5.3 ..but as both rig on a 430 i went 5.5 for low end performance…the thinking here is that if using lower ring and still a handful then it’s time to go on 5.0 and it makes sail selection easier ..sometimes too much choice is no good.

I switched brand sail earlier this year after 10 years on N.... … when I put my Banzai order in... the shop gave me a S... , so I went on a 5.3 S... on demo…had one full session on it …previously i had a few reaches on my friend ’s Banzai 4.5 and the choice was very clear….no contest Banzai was the way to go.

Keep up the good work

Best
