Carrera Carbon

Freecarve Single

The lightest Freecarve board. Freeride on jet-fuel. The Carrera Carbon line is uncompromisingly built for Freecarve riders.

The Carrera Carbon sailing experience is focused on agility, packing torque and the board’s supreme build.

The new shapes are shorter with a wider tail, yet narrower than the Volar Carbon, giving the new Carrera Carbon a wonderful touch of newschool single fin feel. The perfect board to fit beween the One 3 Carbon and the Volar Carbon. Very fast to plane yet easier to gybe than the latter.

Our Freecarve boards are slightly narrower than our Freeride boards, designed for the most advanced Freeriders looking for a livelier board that is easier to trim on the tail, rail and carve.

There used to be a time when only Race boards were built like the Carrera Carbon. And there is no other Freecarve board built like it even today. We set out to create a Freecarve board with only the very best composites applied, racing composites with a full carbon deck construction bringing the ultimate speed and lightness sensation to a broader audience. A sensation that up until now only racers could experience.

You can also alter the character of these boards by simply adjusting the straps to inboard or outboard. There is a single back strap option and two options for a double back strap.

The Carrera Carbon offers high-end performance whenever and wherever you want it. Matching best with the Nexus Freeride sail, Mark or Mark X, it covers all bases from rough seas to lighter winds to calmer lake conditions where it is just as fun to carve as it is jaw-drop-ping fast.

These new shapes increase the overall wind-range and responsiveness. Inspired by the success of the Proton Pro we were able to accomplish our goals by moving the volume flow further back, reducing overall length, keeping the rails more parallel further back, and most importantly, modifying the rocker and flat spot to adjust the initial entry and overall control of the board.

The boards take off in the light of breezes and fly through the lulls. The whole bottom sits just on top of the water, and from the footstraps you can maintain total control and perfect trim. Entry into jibes and exit speed out has also improved significantly, making these boards an absolute joy to ride or race with your friends.

Refinements to find the magical combination of these changes resulted in a line the whole team is stoked on.

Cambié la Carrera 130 lts del modelo anterior por este modelo. Me sorprendió el peso de al tabla, es muy liviana, pero lo que más sorprendió es que si bien parecen muy parecidas a la vista, está tiene una navegación mucho más suave. es como si absorbiera el chop del mar y queda extremadamente estable

La tabla es increíblemente liviana! Flota muy bien y reacciona muy rápido!
La quilla 42 es muy pequeña para Velas 8.0 o 9.0, pero con una 48 anda muy bien!

Took my CARRERA 116 for a spin at Alarcón, close to Madrid. 20 to 22 knots I used my 6.4 Nexus. Magic combination. High speed with absolute control. Loved every minute of it.

Great! 130 fast and so light! Rides like a much smaller board. My only concern is durability. All the new boards are feather weights and this is no different. Hope it lasts!

Took my new 130 out; 12-25 mph wind, flooding. Stock 44cm fin, Sailworks Retro 6.5 and Sailworks SDM 460-75. Doesn't look like 130lts, doesn't ride like 130 either. Light, thin and wide. Simple pin tail design. Surprising amount of nose scoop that inspires confidence in heavy SFbay chop. Board hauls ass; on all points of sail. Other riders vanishing in a hurry. The carbon construction is stiff and responsive. Acceleration is immediate and it pulls with every gust. For a huge board the ride is lively, comfortable and responsive to foot steering. Jibing with a big 460 and 6.5 of course takes commitment. All or nothing with this beast. Not enough rail pressure and it wants to straighten out so pick a gust to initiate. Not a beginner board. Just the right mix of uncompromising speed and handling. Haven't found the top end yet. Love everything about this board.

He probado la 130 con 6,7 y 15-18 nudos y me ha encantado... planeo rápido y fácil en las maniobras... perfecta para freeride con poco viento

I've been testing the 130 with a 6,7 free ride sail in 15-18 knots and I loved it!!! Fast planning, easy in the jibes... perfect for light wind free ride

Wow, I love my Carrera 116. It is absolutely easy and neutral to ride, smooth jibes, jump & bump - everything is possible.

It is amazing how fast it runs on the lake - maximum speed with Banzai 5.7: 28,87kn (33mph, 53kmh). - left behind a lot of racing pilots with their slalom stuff.

Hola Francisco y Lalo,

Ayer día de mi cumpleaños recibí la Carrera 116 que mi familia me ha regalado.

Os escribo solo para deciros que la tabla es preciosa, me encanta lo ligera que es, unas formas preciosas, y unos colores muy bonitos. ¡Me muero de ganas de que haya un poco de viento por aquí en Madrid!

Esperando que todo os vaya bien, os envío un abrazo,

Paco

Sailed our new ( used demo ) from Big Winds yesterday. Was very impressed on my 7.0 Sailworks Retro. Handled beautifully - quick and easy. Didn't feel like a big board - rails softer than my Roberts and faster than my iSonic!! A real keeper! Impressed with the carbon construction.
Well done! Can't wait to get it on our lake back home. Thanks to Eddie Petrocelli from Big Winds - board is everything he said it was! Cheers Tom - Okotoks, Alberta

Goya Nexus 5.9m and Carrera 130L review

Posted on February 18, 2015 by Tez Plavenieks
During a recent trip to Lanazarote I got the opportunity to check out some top drawer Goya freeride windsurfing kit. As the NEly Trade Wind began to fill in a window of opportunity was gifted to me for trying out Goya’s 5.9m Nexus and Carrera 130L combo – here’s how they stacked up.

On the beach
Goya windsurf sails have a very distinct look and the Nexus is no different. With its high aspect cut and six batten configuration the 5.9mn looked ready for action and raring to go. Its perfect partner (for this particular session) a 2015 Goya Carrera 130L freeride sled was also itching to get wet and you could feel the need for speed crackling like electricity in the air.

Both sail and board are well built and super light offering the best balance of performance and robust versatility. Although on the day in question there was minimal (infamous) Costa Teguise shorebreak, we’re no doubt both bits of kit will stand up to a fair bit of abuse – although care should still be taken.

Rigging and tuning the Nexus 5.9m is a doddle and we found the sail set with middle of the road downhaul and outhaul. The Carrera 130L offered a variety of footstrap options meaning everyone from casual blasters to hungry speed demons will be satisfied.

On the water
Costa Teguise’s predominant wind direction is slightly side offshore and therefore very gusty in the bay. Add to the mix an annoyingly placed hotel complexand a couple of breakwaters, further faffing up the breeze, and a bit of extra float is always going to be welcome.

Getting out to the upwind reef, and main Costa Teguise sailing spot, was super easy with the Carrera 130L’s flat deck providing a stable and composed platform that progressing intermediates will find most welcome. The Nexus 5.9m’s reaction to buffeting gusts was also easy going and in the ‘on/off’ bay wind it remained stable in the hands without reacting unexpectedly.

Once at the wind line the true nature of this setup emerged. As soon as clean air filled the sail the acceleration of the Nexus 5.9m was instantaneous. Driving power down in to the 42cm fin and propelling the Carrera 130L up onto the plane in a flash I was off and redlining quick smart.Tez Plavenieks Goy Windsurfing kit testing Costa Teguise

At full chat it’s easy to locate outboard footstraps and in the blink of an eye the rider is skimming along at a fair rate of knots. Although the breeze was still filling in the Goya setup slid through lulls efficiently and accelerated as a new puff of wind hit.

The water state across the reef is quite choppy with Atlantic rolling swell pulsing along the fringes of the island. Potentially confused water states need composed windsurfing kit to make the rider comfortable and the Nexus 5.9m and Carrera 130L stayed flat and locked in at all times. Hurtling over chop and waves board and sail sailed straight and true, never once tail walking or feeling skittish.

As the first corner approached I was apprehensive about the wide (70.2”) Carrera and how it would cope with such a choppy sea – especially on the outside. I needn’t have feared though as once a rail is engaged the Goya cuts through the flotsam like a knife through butter. All the time the Nexus 5.9m drives the nose of the board flat and pushes it round the bend.


To replicate a more intermediate gybe I backed off the throttle a few times but the Goya’s sail and board combo still had me railing round the corner with ease.

Flying back towards shore in Costa Teguise delivers the opportunity of heading down slopey swells – thereby increasing your speed further. Although this set up isn’t full on slalom kit it still keeps on accelerating and experienced sailors will enjoy testing where the boundaries are.

Locking down the Nexus and Carrera is really achievable for most levels of rider, even when smashing through chop – before you know it you’ll be preparing for your next turn.

Conclusion
The Goya Nexus 5.9m and Carrera 130L is an extremely efficient freeride combo that delivers an exciting experience for a whole host of rider skill levels. Mid-intermediates will find it a great tutor for consolidating footsrap technique while advanced windsurfers will love unlocking the kit’s freerace potential. The only slight niggle was the high aspect nature of the Nexus sail which made it feel a tad bigger than 5.9m. That said it really is only a minor point and the pure joy of riding this gear far out ways anything else.

About the Carrera, it's super good planing, super stable on water to go straight...on of big advantage is jibe, curve stability and keep speed...we don't have the performances of Freerace board, it stay a Freeride board, with accessibility, confort and easy to ride...I just test 130 model, I have to put mast foot on back and/or boom higher to lift the board and have more lively, free feeling, more sportive. It was sticking more on water (easier for average people) with mast foot on middle/front and boom low...Super construction/price compare to concurrent models.

Thank you for the lightest fastest Freeride board I have ever rode on, not only I could carry my board around effortless I haven't yet found the top end of it! Keep on making the best gear, Randy.
