Volar

Freeride Single

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.

Wood Sandwich Construction.

Available in 110, 120, 130, 145, 160 liters.

Comes with the latest generation MFC footstraps.

In-board and out-board footstrap options.

Available in Bright Red & White.

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,
Alex

Aloha Alex,

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?

Kind regards
Johannes


Aloha Johannes,

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,

Hi Pascal,

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!

Best wishes,

Tobias

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.
