The Volar shares all shape and features with the Volar Carbon, except it comes in a rugged and more affordable build, ideal for schools, centers and families, while offering identical ride characteristics. A durable, tough, but still light board.
The Volar 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 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 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.
Considerably more affordable, by using a wood sandwich build around its cubed fused cell foam core, the Volar guarantees for supreme durability, making it a favorite with windsurfing centers around the world.
The Volar features unidirectional glass reinforced rails for extra stiffness in surf conditions. High grade epoxy resin creates an impact resistant outer skin. All other features and inserts match the Carbon version.
Fused Cell Core. Goya boards come with a Fused Cell Core made from EPS. Fused Cell Expanded Polystyrene is a high quality, low weight, rigid, closed cell foam used in advanced modern production boardmaking.
Wood Sandwich. Wood in combination with fiberglass can take heavy beatings over an extended period of time, for example in school or rental scenarios. On top it creates a very affordable construction.
The new Goya Windsurfing boards now come packed in recycled cardboard and paper tape only. No plastic bags. Keeping your planet, our planet, one step cleaner. We figured it’s a worthy trade off, as our love for windsurfing and the planet only grows.

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.

Hello! I'm deciding between a Volar 145L vs 160L wood construction, to work with my 8.7m2 out here on Okanagan lake.
I'm 6'1 and 175 lbs, and intermediate (can water start in big winds, planing in harness is great but i dont use footstraps yet). I think both of these boards would work well with this large sail, but heard in an interview that the 160L model received a graphics update but did not have the same shaping updates as the 145L, that the 160L is unchanged from the 2019 board. I cant find pictures of this model online, could you comment on if it has the new squash tail, and which board you would recommend overall, I have a feeling that the 145L will be a good size that I won't grow out of, but maybe the 160L is better for such a large sail and would plane earlier. I do already have a PB 52cm fin to try to match with the big sail, so that difference between models may not matter so much for me.
Thank you so much,
Thank you for writing over and considering our boards.
Based on your build, I would go for the Volar 145. This new shape is a bit bigger in volume.
I’m sure that you will be using the straps in no time; just start by opening them up big and placing them further forward & inside option, this will make it easier to access them at first, and then you can move them back, and closer to the rail as your confidence builds up.
You can adjust the washers to make the strap wider (to start and with shoes) or narrower for added grip as you feel more comfortable in them.
Like everything, enjoy the whole process as there will always be something to improve.
Try setting the mast foot as far back as possible unless the tail is sinking in too much.
I’m also pretty sure you will benefit from a smaller sail eventually. This will allow you to ride a smaller, lighter mast that I believe will get you planning just as quickly or sooner.
Please don’t hesitate to reach back if you have any questions.
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 like the look, can you email a image of both colors ? Red & Orange/Peach?
Das Board habe ich mir neu angeschafft und als Aufsteiger kann ich es nur empfehlen. Gerade bei Kabbeligen Gebieten steht man sicher drauf und gleitet schön über die Wellen.
Die Testberichte im S. Magazin sind da sehr treffend!
de niño trataba de navegar en rio gallegos, muuuy complicado, luego en mis viajes alquilaba o pedia prestado equipo, finalmente retome seriamente el deporte y compre VOLAR para encontrarme nuevamente con el windsurf, me siento comodo y acompañado por la marca y sus representantes, seguire con GOYA, y seguire navegando, frente a los Glaciares, GRACIAS
Light, fast, carves easily, and handles the chop with no problems. An all round great freeride board that'll last me many many years, and you can't beat the price of these for what you get compared to other manufacturers.
When are you going to make this board foil compatible?
I’ve been drooling over it since the last colourful design but sadly I can’t buy one until it’s a foil board.
