The all new Bolt’s rocker has an almost continuos flat section from behind the mast all the way to the back, with the lightest release off the tail for unlimited speed and acceleration. A concave deck around the mast track drives the power of the rig lower and forward on the water. Tail cutouts bring flotation to lower speeds, out of jibes and reduce the wetted area on straight speeding lines.
The Bolt gets up and planing on the lightest breeze, and paces through gusts, allowing you to forcefully ride on the fin with direct control. The outline curves and rail shapes project you out of jibes like no other board in the Goya line.
“In a couple of words, these are the fastest raceboards still comfortable to ride and jibe that I have ever ridden.”
We really wanted to add more carbon. Or take something else away. Max out one more number. Something. Anything. But we couldn’t. Because the Bolt has been maxed out from day one. There are no editions of the Bolt. The Bolt is ultimate.
Full Carbon layup. Extremely sanded weight saver finish. A bare minimum of graphics. Small pads. In one word the Bolt is the essence of fast windsurfing with barely enough comfort to jibe and go through real life chop. Welcome to a new dimension of the Goya universe. We’ve mastered curves. Here’s to straight lines.

Really Fast and confortable board. Got one 95l for Gruissan (Fr)
Thanks to Lalo who recommend me this board at DefiWind !!
Once again: Mahalo for this great board(s)!
Sunday I had the pleasure to be able to test the brand new Bolt 135 at Lake Walchensee. Thanks to Ralph from Freestyleworld for giving me the opportunity 🙂
It was just great. And I was really surprised about the speed of the board. On my second run I reached 29,5kn in very gusty conditions with a 9.3 freerace sail. Just cool.
My son is riding the Bolt 95 with sails between 5.0 - 6.3. What a dream for him. No problems to control in rough conditions.
Looking forward to complete our range of 95 and 115 with the new 135.

Let's start with speed, the 105 is a quick little beast...35 knots with a 6.4 in the Gorge chop is some serious velocity. The thing is it doesn't feel fast, just comfortable. It's a deceptive board that feels super stiff both in construction and ride. It tracks true and doesn't change direction easily. Once you get acquainted with its characteristics you can start cranking the turns with gusto, drive hard and it will turn fast. The 105 carries speed easily on all points of sail. You have to fin it up to get it working, a 36cm Vector Volt seems sweet but the lack of nose rocker and tail up attitude takes some getting used to off the wind in the channel where steep swells and crazy chop live. Upwind speed is very impressive and it's so easy to sail. In an hour and half session I didn't drop a single jibe! Nice job Goya, can't wait to try the 95.
The Bolt just loves to jibe and goes pretty fast too : ) Have only tried Bolt 105 with 6.6 m sail so far and they match perfectly I'd say. Thanks to everybody involved in crafting this easy to use line of boards.
I want to inform you about the Goya Bolt. Maybe you already know, but this is a superb board range! Mega fast and controllable.
Now I have tested the Bolt 105, I'm just blown away.
Now I'm thinking of buying a full set of Bolt boards.
First jibe was a surprise! Then again, so was the first run. Both had me smiling. The board is fast, forgiving and, most of all, fun! Kudos to the team. Great product.
PS - Last summer, the Carreras were some of our best sellers. They made people realize Goya products are more than wave toys. The Bolt is doing the same - especially with the addition of the Mark. It's great to see you guys put in effort on the free-ride front and find success. It's deserved!

YEAH SUPER DUPER JOB GUYS
Looks like the Bolt is getting some rave reports in Europe! Yes, Bolt got very good qualifications and comments on Wind Magazine (France), Planche Mag (France) and Windsurfer (UK)
Pending to receive the results of test from Surfavela (Spain)
The board is qualified as: Light, exiting, the Goya’s Triumph, quality Free-ride, high speed sensations, physically light, incredibly responsive
All good.!! 🙂
Mahalo for this great board!
On Saturday I picked up my Bolt 115 at my local dealer FreestyleWorld.de. On Sunday and Monday I had my first two impressing sessions.
I don`t like it, I LOVE IT.
On Sunday I took my Mark 8.5 and I have to find the perfect setup and maybe a bigger fin. Yesterday (Monday) the wind was a bit stronger and I choose my Mark 7.2. Wow, what a perfect combination. From the first second I felt as comfortable as I would have never had any other board before.
Get on board – fell the wind – get the power in the sail and the Bolt is releasing early and accelerating quickly.
The question is, who needs a difficult and hard to ride “slalom machine” if you can get the speed of it together with the easy and smooth handling of a freeride/freemove board. I don’t!
Maximum speed on my second session 28kn and just 85% power in the sail. There is a lot more possible.
I really hope more surfers will be able to test and surf the Bolt. I am sure they will refuse to give it back.

Tried the 105 bolt as a demo board using a 5.6m full race 4 cam slalom sail at a relatively flat water sea venue in strong winds gusting 30 plus knots, after having used my own slalom board. Was struck by how fast it was, but also
how it smoothed out what chop there was, and how much more comfortable it was compared to the slalom board I currently own... If its light wind early planing ability is equally as good as its this board is going to sell like hotcakes once word gets out... Gybing is a dream on it...
The Goya Bolt 115 is a real Speedmachine! First try with a Banzai 5.0 Wavesail with a Vmax of 30,674 Knots. With the new Goya Mark it should go easily a few Knots higher.
Good news I picked up my bolt 115, Board looks fabulous. Have had a couple of sails on it now and am very pleased with it. I'am so glad I went for the bolt it's so fast ! Brilliant! !! Thank you.
"Dude that board is unreal, f..... perfect powered 4.8 day"
Hoy me han llegado las tablas y he podido estrenar la Bolt 105.
La he montado con la Mark 7.2 y es un equipo que funciona muy bien, es el tamaño correcto para esta tabla. Ahora tengo un equipo que arranca rápido y que tiene buena velocidad.
La tabla se nota muy corta al navegar, al principio se me hacia rara, pero cuando vas al largo se agradece, porque cuando bajas la ola no se clava.
La tabla es bastante técnica, la trasluchada és como de una tabla de slalom, pero cuando le coges el punto, sale como un cohete.
He hecho varios piques con turistas con material de slalom, y al largo los dejaba bastante atrás…pero no se si el nivel que tienen es muy bueno.
Creo que la aleta de 40 es demasiado grande, seria mejor 38, pero tengo que probarlo para estar seguro.
Ciñe mucho, he remontado el viento con mucha facilidad.
Realmente es una tabla que da muy buenas sensaciones, pero se necesita un poco de nivel para llevarla. La Carrera es mucho mas accesible
Supongo que en los test de las revistas va a salir con muy buena nota.
En la playa todo el mundo estaba pendiente de la tabla
Espero que mañana mas…..
