The board to enjoy the greatest sport on earth.
The Volar Carbon is our ultimate user-friendly Windsurfing board to grow, learn and enjoy the sport at all levels. The board is fast, stable and accelerates with each gust of wind.
On a straight line or gybing, the Volar Carbon rides naturally giving the rider all the confidence to push their level on every move. With its thinner profile on the water or in the air, the new Volar Carbon feels glued to your feet.
Each size was individually created to match the specific conditions giving the larger volumes a proportionally wider and longer outline, with added balance and the early planing needed for the lighter conditions. The smaller sizes have a smoother bottom curve for the added control needed on the rougher days.
You can also alter the character of these boards by simply adjusting the straps, using single or double footstrap on the tail or in its three levels from inboard to outboard settings.
By positioning the volume flow further back, reducing overall length, keeping the rails more parallel further back and most importantly modifying the rocker and flat spot helps adjust the initial entry, control, and speed of the board.
Refinements to find the magical combination of these changes resulted in a line the whole team is stoked on! The new Volar Carbon is easier to stand on when not planing, faster to get going and quicker to respond to rider input to stay in control and push yourself from beginner to intermediate as fast as possible.
Take off in the lightest breeze and fly through the lulls. The whole board sits just on top of the water and from the footstraps you can maintain total control and perfect trim.
Entry into jibes as well as exit speed out has also improved significantly, making these boards a blast to drag race against your friends on the weekends.
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 that much fun to ride or race with your friends.

La planche pour profiter du meilleur sport du monde.
La Volar Carbone est notre planche conviviale ultime pour progresser, apprendre et s’amuser à tous les niveaux. La planche est rapide, stable et accélère dans chaque rafale de vent.
Sur une ligne droite ou en jibe, la Volar Carbone ride naturellement en mettant le rider en confiance afin d’améliorer son niveau dans chaque manœuvre. Avec son profil plus fin sur l’eau ou dans les airs, la nouvelle Volar est collée à vos pieds.
Chaque taille a été créée individuellement pour s’adapter à des conditions spécifiques, donnant aux plus gros volumes un outline proportionnellement plus large et plus long, avec plus d’équilibre et le planning précoce nécessaire pour les vents légers. Les plus petites tailles ont une courbe inférieure plus douce pour plus de contrôle dans les conditions plus difficiles.
Vous pouvez également modifier le caractère de ces planches en ajustant tout simplement les straps, en utilisant soit la configuration d’un strap centré ou bien de deux straps excentrés à l’arrière, ou bien à ses trois rangées en configuration interne ou externe.
En répartissant le volume plus sur l’arrière, en réduisant la longueur totale, en gardant les rails plus parallèles et plus sur l’arrière et surtout en modifiant le rocker et la zone de plat, cela aide à améliorer le départ au planning, le contrôle et la vitesse de la planche.
Des ajustements ont été faits pour trouver la combinaison magique de ces changements et ont abouti à une gamme dont laquelle toute l’équipe est très fière! Il est plus facile de tenir debout sur la nouvelle Volar Carbone lorsque l’on ne plane pas, de démarrer plus vite ainsi que de garder le contrôle, répondre aux commandes du rider et de progresser le plus rapidement possible.
Les planches décollent à la moindre petite rafale et traversent les molles de vent à pleine vitesse. Toute la carène se cale juste à la surface de l’eau, et à partir des footstraps vous pouvez garder un contrôle total et un équilibre longitudinal parfait. La vitesse d’entrée et de sortie dans le jibe se sont également considérablement améliorées, procurant beaucoup de plaisir en ridant ces planches ou en faisant la course avec vos amis.
Ces nouveaux shapes augmentent la plage d’utilisation et la réactivité. Inspirées par le succès qu’ont eu les Proton Pro, nous avons pu atteindre nos objectifs en répartissant le volume plus sur l’arrière, en réduisant la longueur totale, en gardant les rails plus parallèles, plus reculés et surtout, en modifiant le rocker et la zone de plat pour ajuster le départ au planning et le contrôle global de la planche.

Got Volar-130 pro (carbon) in 2020, this was my first 'smaller' board after I learned to windsurf and plane on my first board (large Techno 185) and also got to ride superlight wind JP SLW 165 (also foiling on it). Actually, I was looking for Startboard Carve 135, but that was not in stock for too long and I settled on Volar that got in stock first. And I don't regret it! Volar Pro/Carbon is very light and gets planing effortlessly, generally it does not even require pumping. Friend of mine got Carve 135. Carve is somewhat wider (82cm vs 77cm) and thicker at the tail, so it is more stable, but you have to pump it few times to get planing, and it is somewhat bumpier on chops and slightly slower (due to width?). I do like Carve too, but Volar would be my choice (maybe because I got used to it...) In Indiana wind is gusty and you have to be prepared for non-planing conditions, so smaller volume sinkers are not suitable most of the time. I used Volar with 8.1 (most of the time) and 6.7 Ezzy Hydra Sport, as well as Ezzy Elite 6.1, 5.3, 4.2 - works well, except for lighter winds and 8.1 sail I got a longer fin (51cm Select V-Max V4), makes huge difference, gets planing quicker and with much fewer spin-outs. Also paired it with Tectonics Weed Demon II 41cm fin for weedy condition for 8.1and 6.7 sails, so far it is far the best compared to my other smaller weed fins with larger sails, though with stronger winds / smaller sails BlackProject Hydro Antiweed 45cm and even Blackproject siren 22.5cm work well. This year my friend got the newer 2022 version of Volar 130 carbon. It is similar to mine, but slightly wider and thicker at the tail so it feels more stable. Other friend of mine got Volar pro 145 for light wind and large sails, got tired of using his 2012 72cm wide Tabou Rocket 130 in light winds, he was always the last one to get planing on that narrower board even with his sail being the largest (8.5 Turbo GT).
Disclaimer: I learned windsurfing by watching youtube tutorials, so I am not an expert.
PS: photo is from Canadian Hole (Outer Banks, Avon). To my surprise I was the fastest on my Volar with 8.1 amongst others on wingfoils and windsurfs, though I was losing on jibes, need to watch more youtubes...
We have been enjoying riding the new gear this year. We took a trip to Bonaire for the 1st time, and rented gear from the Dunkerbeck center specifically to try the Goya stuff. First, that is a magical place for flat-water cruising! We had good wind the week there and got to sail everything from 5.3-7.4. I was duly impressed with the gear, and have to say one of the most memorable & surprising sessions was on the last day when the wind had dropped off. I decided to rig big and take a last sail before leaving the next day on a Carrera 130 & Nexus 7.4. I hadn't sailed gear that big in a long time, but had an absolute blast. I believe the larger 5 battened recreational sails to be one of the most challenging to design and build well given its natural constraints. Hats off to Jason & the team though, as that was a very impressive sail. I tried a couple of the other brands side by side against it just to see if all sails had become that good, but it really stood out with its balance, power, and stability. It was good coming home knowing we were getting into some great sails.
I ended up going all in with sails from 3.7-6.6, masts, and four boards. I figure no time like the present, right. Boards like the Quad 89 I assumed would just rip, which it does, & the Volar 110 virtually jibes itself, but the big stand-out is the One3 105. Hands down, one of the most fun boards I have ever sailed! I had tried one of the older versions in Bonaire, and honestly was not super impressed. It was decent, but felt very traditional in terms of planing up and quickness. The new version feels very updated & does everything amazingly well. I've sailed it lit 4.7 up to 5.9, and can't wipe the smile off after sailing it!
Here's a pic from our last sail of the year Dec 12th - water temp was in the 40's, air temp in the 30's, occasionally snowing, but blowing 20-30. I probably would not have gone, but my son was home from school & really wanted to get a session. Man, I am glad we went - super fun session with him & a friend on the water!
I hope you are well, and enjoying the holidays. I just wanted to say hello, and let you know all the hard work you & the Goya team have put in on the '22/'23 gear is appreciated.
Hallo, I was in El Medano a and used your board Volar Carbon, it was really good, thank you, it helped me a lot to enjoy my stay, I´m beginner in the ocean windsurfing and it was really easy to ride the board, it jumps quickly to plain and it helped me in jibes. I was sailing in moderate conditions up to 25 knots and as I have 100 kg, I used 145 l version with 7,8 sail. Next time I will try a smaller one 🙂
is Volar a good board for the intermediate sailors looking to grow with the board? Is it held back in the speed department compared to similar boards in this category? The Volar is advertised as a learning board for the entire family which is my concern. If this is true it does not make sense that it is an intermediate sailor board that wants to push to more limits.
Best regards, Al
Thank you for reaching over.
The Volar shares the same rocker as our Carrera, Bolt, and Proton, our full-on racing board, so you got nothing holding you back here.
So you can set the straps on the outer position and trim on the rail and fin as on a race board. Or you can set the straps to the inner position, and through the added width, you can have an intermediate or beginning rider have a great time, too, with a fast and early planning hull.
Let me know if you have any other questions, and thank you for considering our gear!
Dear Goya staff,
I\'m wondering if the 130 l Trainer is adapted to the lesser weight of people who start with a 130 l board. Are the larger Trainers more ding resistant, more resistant to foot pressure than this board I assume is designed for light-weight beginners?
Thank you for reaching over and considering our VOLAR & SURF models.
Yes, we have the VOLAR/SURF shapes in 3 different constructions.
VOLAR PRO is the lightest and tightest of all, with a full carbon deck lamination, top-of-the-line fin, sanded paint job, Carbon Fin, etc.
VOLAR is the middle ground, with a more ding-resistant shell, and fiberglass fin.
SURF is the school/trainer option with a center plastic fin, full EVA deck pad, carrying handle, etc.
If you are an intermediate to advanced rider, I will go for the first two options.
The SURF option is ideal for people learning the sport, kids, schools, etc.
I hope that I was able to answer your question. Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any other.
All the best winds,
I just realized I never got back to you last year when you helped me locate a Volar - I just wanted to let you know that I found what was probably the last 160 for sale on the mainland and I have been using it since last September. What an awesome board! I had my best session ever on it the first time I took it out and it just keeps putting big smiles on my face every time I ride it. I just ordered an Airbolt Pro 155 to try out foiling this year and cannot wait to give it a go. Saving for a foil now... 🙂
Thanks again for helping me with my switch to a modern board last fall!
I used the Goya boards at Bonaire, Dunkerbeck Pro Center at the end of February 2020. the 115 volar is fabulous, used with 7.2 and 7.8 sails. I liked the 130 avev 8.5 sails less, a little sluggish.
the 115 reminds me of another fabulous board, the 115 fsw fanatic of the 2011 years.
Switched all my boards to GOYA this summer (Volar 145, Proton 116, Air 100) and feeling totally happy with them.
For me, the Volar Pro 145 with a 7,2 Mark 2 is the ideal weapon for light-wind planing.
Put the straps on the outer areas and you will have excellent control even in those choppy waves, we have in my home-area around Fehmarn (Baltic Sea).
Equipped with the absolutely brilliant MFC Liquid Pro 46 standard fin (which comes with the board), the Volar is the perfect toy for a long, enjoyable day on the water.
And back on land: "Tyson, the dog" is always keeping an eye on it.
*** Thanks to Ralph from www.freestyleworld.de for his fine service ***
Used 105 at the Dunkerbeck Centre in Bonaire. Excellent board. Super fast into and out of the turns, rails really well. I thought it was fun than the bolt. Very different from the JP Freeride boards I'm used to. Ordering one...
Man o man. I didnt windsurf for 25 years. First board I tried @Dunkerbeck Procenter Bonaire a
Volar 115 . Perfect and easy to have fun again.
Progressing every dat. Stoked again.
Volar is for us the best freeride board you can have, our customers love it, so far only positive reactions, quality is great, feel that the bond between foam and fiber is outstanding. MFC Footstraps are great also.
I had a incredible wave session on the Volar 105 on Fall… This board I bought you for my girlfriend is simply the best freeride board I ever try! It's so smooth, so easy !!! Her speed is good, jibe abilities are amazing, and with a small wave fin, she becomes a board that allows you to make very good wavesailing!!! Waow!!! Congrats guys !!!
The Volar 130 twinned with a Mark 8.5 makes a perfect combo for all the light wind summer days we get in the UK. The only people going faster than me in a straight line in those conditions are the sailors on the specialist race/slalom kit, but my combo is much more fun to sail and much easier to rig, gybe and handle.
On flat water the 130 remains surprisingly capable down to 6m conditions so it is ideal if the wind is a bit gusty as it has plenty of volume to coast through the lulls. A fun and versatile board.
Did first Volar 115 sail last night with 7.5 Cheetah bagged out and 46 LP fin, in 10-20mph winds. Felt great! Easy to sail along, and really sets you up for a good planing jibe. Definitely tippy at rest compared to Rocket Wide 138 87cm, but only a few falls before uphauling successfully. Hit 23mph, compared to usual 25mph on Rocket Wide and 19-21mph on Hula. Cut through chop better, and felt easier on the knees. The 72 width only felt a little more difficult to get on plane compared to 87 width board. Added NSI medium nose pad.
