Banzai Pro

Powerwave 4 Batten.

Stock Model

Banzai Pro

Powerwave 4 Batten

Developed in collaboration with Goya Windsurfing top team rider champions Marcilio Browne and Kai Lenny, the Banzai Pro is our worldwide wave sail. Outstanding power is paired with excellent control.

The 2022/23 model features an improved flex feel throughout the entire size range, well balanced for maneuver style riding, with an extra bit of power available off the backhand at all times, for really loading up into big maneuvers or just for a burst of speed.

Unique to the Banzai Pro design concept is the back-hand throttle control. The sail pulls forward from “low RPMs” and is very balanced, but there is always a little “extra” available off the back hand for when you really need to juice up into a jump or maneuver. This tactile back-hand feel gives you a direct connection to how the sail is loading and releasing and allows you stay connected throughout your maneuvers.

The Banzai Pro is simple to rig, yet highly tunable to rider style and preference. Its Poly Clew out-haul system, offering a high and a low boom attachment ring, in particular expands the wind range of this bestseller even more. The Banzai Pro is the answer and solution to all demands of a light weight, direct power delivery, wide range sail with heaps of flex feel and control. Its adaptability is unparalleled.

Developed from years of focused collaboration with the team and a worldwide following, the work continues.

Quality features such as folded edges and leech protection against fraying remain alive and well even in the context of the sail’s most massive weight drop to date.

The Banzai Pro window material is Bi-Ply film. A massive step up from mono film, Bi-Ply is two layers of laminated clear film, lasting about 3x longer than mono film. It is UV protected and highly resistant to hard creases. Endlessly supple when unrolling your sail, and endlessly valuable when falling and not breaking it.

The yellow sail is Marcilio Browne’s personal Pro Model.

The new Goya Windsurfing sails now come packed in recycled cardboard and paper tape only. No redundant plastic bags. Your sail bag is that protective bag, 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.

Pro Construction, Bi-Ply window, Scrim panels.

Available in 3,15, 3,4, 3,7, 4,0, 4,2, 4,5, 4,7, 5,0, 5,3, 5,5, 5,7, 6,0, 6,3 square meters.

Available in Fluo Yellow & White or Red & Fluo Yellow.

Développée en collaboration avec les champions du team Goya Windsurfing, Marcilio Browne et Kai Lenny, la Banzai Pro est notre voile de vague passe partout. Une puissance exceptionnelle associée à un excellent contrôle.

Le modèle 2022/23 offre une souplesse améliorée sur toute la gamme de tailles, un bon équilibre pour les manœuvres, avec toujours un petit extra disponible dans la main arrière afin de prendre de la vitesse ou pour charger lors de grosses manœuvres.

La commande d’accélérateur de la main arrière est unique au concept de la Banzai Pro. La voile pousse vers l’avant même à bas régimes et reste bien équilibrée et lors de sauts ou en grosses manœuvres vous pouvez profiter de la commande d’accélérateur arrière si besoin. Cette sensation dans la main arrière vous donne une connexion directe avec la façon dont la voile se charge ou se libère en puissance, et vous permet de rester connecté et en contrôle tout au long de vos manœuvres.

La Banzai Pro est simple à gréer et reste très adaptable au style et aux préférences du rider. Son système de point d’écoute Poly Clew offre deux positions d’œillets, un en haut et un en bas, augmentant la plage d’utilisation de ce best-seller. La Banzai Pro est la réponse et la solution à toutes les exigences d’une voile légère, délivrant une sensation de puissance instantanée et ayant une grande plage d’utilisation avec toujours beaucoup de souplesse et de contrôle. Son adaptabilité est inégale.

Développée sur des années de collaboration avec le team et les retours de nos clients du monde entier, le travail se poursuit.

Bien que le poids des voiles ait considérablement diminué, les caractéristiques de qualité, telles que les renforts contre l’effilochage sur les coutures et la chute, restent les mêmes.

La fenêtre de la Banzai Pro est faite en film Bi-Ply. Une avancée colossale par rapport au Monofilm, le Bi-Ply est composé de deux couches de films transparents laminés et a une durée de vie d’environ trois fois plus longue que le Monofilm. Il est protégé contre les rayons UV et très résistant aux plis. Vous vous rendrez compte de sa souplesse lorsque vous déroulerez votre voile, et de sa qualité lorsque vous tomberez sans rien casser.

La voile jaune est le Pro Model de Marcilio Browne.

What the magazines say

Unbiased praise and criticism straight from the press.

  • Planchemag, France, 2023: Ultra polyvalente, cette Banzai libère plus de jus dans l’accélération.
  • Wind Magazine, France, 2023: La Banzai Pro se distingue par une énorme dose de flex de tous les instants et de la ressource en main arrière à la demande.
  • Windsurf Magazine, United Kingdom, February 2022: The new Banzai Pro has arrived, its clean and eye-catching visuals characterising its riding style well. Lighter in the hands, it has a softer, more accommodating nature, which will find favour with most. A quality product in every sense.

wanted to share two things worth mentioning as continuation of our conversation while on the water the other day about gear that doesn't break ?

The batten tensioners with the hooks on the side is a really nice feature for simplicity of removing the rope and batten vs the half moon shape other brands use, those half moon things force you to crinkle the monofilm to remove and replace the darn thing, these hook type with Goya are really nice ? big win boom shaka

Also the Goya battens are different and feel light, I was told by other brand "they (battens) are all the same" that is hogwash, y un monton grande de mierda, not true at all. I can see with the Goya battens looking in the center area where the batten is cut to size it's solid throughout the diameter, vs other brand is a white flaky dusty almost chalky with visible glass fiber splinters

Lovin those Bonzai's thank you.

Yesterday I used my new Banzai PRO 4.5.
It was a big change from the one from 2016, which I had been using for years. I could feel the work and dedication in searching for the best technology and details for better sensitivity and enjoyment in the water.
Congratulations to the entire development team.
Thank you very much Francisco, Mariano and Nico for giving us the opportunity to enjoy Goya in Argentina.

Aloha Guys,

With everybody out and about on their summer adventures I just wanted to find a way to thank you all as a team for allowing me to be so well equipped for Fiji. Not only did I have a blast riding those incredible waves but I\'m also really stoked to have won. It was a really special event for many reasons.

I\'m so grateful for the gear, it was on point. The custom board and fins, the sails... as beautiful as the conditions looked, there were also some challenges. Light wind, current, top turn timed a little late... 😉 and I feel like you all helped me overcome them through the gear and your support. So THANK YOU!!

Hi Francisco,

As a point of comparison, I took a 2020 4.7 Banzai out the following day with similar conditions, in the stronger sections I could really appreciate the preciseness of the Banzai (vs the stability of the Eclipse). It was in the transitions that I missed the new construction, since I'm so light the weight reduction really makes a difference.

I keep having days that fluctuate wildly between 5.3 and 4.7, so I've ordered a Banzai 5.0 to hopefully cover that range better. It will be interesting to compare and contrast the new Banzai, vs the Eclipse, vs the previous Banzai.

I was also able to rig the Banzai 6.0 with an SDM until my RDM arrives.

I\'m about to buy a 100 Pro Mast for my new Banzai 5.5.
Which length do you recommend for a 92 kg rider, 400 or 430?
On the sail there\'s only printed mast 400.
Regards, Alex

Response: Hi Alex,

great to hear from you. I believe you will enjoy the sail more on a 400 mast if you have a long enough extension.

Another option would be having the bottom of a 430 combined with a 400 top. This will have a bit of a blend between the draft stability and lightness at the top of the sail.

Please note that all of our masts (Ultra/100%/80%/70% & 50%) are interchangeable except for our XXL 90%. Those are also interchangeable, but not with the other carbon content masts.

All the best winds!

This sail is awsome. I still haven't use it to serious wave conditions, only in bump&jump. It is so light in hands, very powerfyll but very handly. It depowers very quickly when needed, and accelerates like hell !!! It is also very good looking - especially in this orange- red - yelow combination. I love it.

The 2022 Banzai Pro ROCKS! Same light in your hand feel, yet all the power when you need. Started with a 4.5 then went all in with a 4.7 & 5.0. Biggest surprise: durability - holding up well after some serious beat-downs - thanks for the beefier luff sleeve material!

I finally got out the gear yesterday at Doug\'s. I am blown away! The Banzai X 3.4 with the 100% 370 and skinny boom felt like a butterfly\'s wing in my hands! And the Cube 81 turned so radically I actually tripped over it when I carved hard upwind for a backside hit! Now I understand how MB makes those crazy turns.

I got my new quiver of Banzai . The sails are amazing. The biggest improvement from 20 version is the light weight , amazing colours and rigging range . The sails respond very well to downhaul adjustments . Awesome job on the 22/23 sails goya team

Hi Pascal,
Still buzzing from my last high wind session- 79 l custom 4 20/21 and 4.0 banzai 20/21. The board ok- superb I have said that before, fast, snappy and very well balanced volume distribution. Imho the secret is hidden in the bottom mix and transition of concaves... But anyway the thing that blew my mind was the Banzai Pro. The next day the wind increased 14- 17 m/s. I skipped my 3.7 and went to my, ink/yellow 3.4. Everyone was on 3.7-4.2 depending on weight. I used the bottom clew eyelet with a very small amount of downhaul-and bang! catch me if you can !!-I hardly felt I had anything in my hands( I have to say that I had the goya rdm 100 340 2022 and the goya superskinny boom. Then next day the wind dropped 12-16m/s but the waves were better- I was lazy and went for the 3.4 again to see what happens. I just changed to the upper clew eyelet- and bang- the moment I stepped I was on the plane blasting, passing my mates on 4.2-4.5 s and I am not that light- 73 kg. Amazing adaptability and reactivity- two sails in one. I think the reactiveness comes from the vast area of biply and xply- if the xply strip was scrim it would not be so... I am so stoked with the banzais. This is it for now. Looking forward to the 2022 goya quads.
Best regards Georgi

New scrim body panel materials-
-ALL MODELS- (except Surf)
...Vastly improves overall sail durability , also this new scrim holds shape better- makes the sails feel more stable,,, much lighter and quieter in the hands while sailing.
Also, one more detail about the new scrim materials is that for 2020, all colors have been re-vised to bring mocha more richness and vibrancy to the appearance of the sails, particularly on the water. Fashion? Yes…,,, but more importantly for me is the safety factor- you can spot and identify the new 2020 sails from great distances and this is huge piece of mind when it’s your partner, kid or good friend out there windsurfing in low light conditions.

This info is already listed in the materials, but I repeat it here so that I can emphasize to all of you here on the team that these scrim material changes alone mark a huge step/change in the sails development.
It bears repeating and reminding.

Also on all sails-
Weight aloft (up high) in the sails has been reduced with new construction details,,, this improves the lightweight handling feel of the sails through their wind range.

Also, Bi-ply is HUGE feature in the sails and it should be mentioned at every opportunity, so I’ll mention it here-
It is a huge step up from standard mono film. Bi-ply is a UV protected laminated clear film that lasts about 3x as long as mono film for UV (cracking) and also is much more resistant to hard creases. Bi-ply provides massive value.

OK, OK, here we go,,,
Model by model-

Banzai Pro and Banzai X Pro-
-Changes/details above, plus-
-More rigging range for more adaptability to changing conditions and different power delivery characteristics.
-Enhanced flex feel and control throughout the wind range with updated mid body shapes.

Hope this info helps!

Please let me know if any of you have questions or comments here…

Kind Regards,

My girlfriend and I are sharing a bunch of 5 Banzais and are really happy with them.
Sizes are : 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, 5.0, 5.3. We have 3 masts : 340, 370 and 400 and 30cm extensions.

Still, we're dealing with an issue : in some rare cases, we want to rig 5.0 and 5.3. Our current set of masts won't allow us to do so, as both sails require 400+ luff (414 and 424). We'd like to extend our masts set with one half mast only.

What do you guys at Goya recommend ? Should we go for a 430 base that we would mount with a 370 top (215+185+15ext) ?

Regards from South of France,

Aloha! I used banzai 5.7 for the first time today. Light, powerful, and controllable. Thank you for the best sail!

Got my new 2019 4.0, 4.5 and 5.0. Amazing sails as always, i've been blown away by power, control and handling.
But the new 4.0 having a 370 luff on a 370 mast needs a 0cm mastbase, that's not an option when using the US-System, so i got a 6cm gap sailpulley to base that i can't avoid.
A vario top would be nice for this size or a little more lufflength.

I am absolutely loved in this sail from the first touch. Recently I took 4.7 Banzai with Goya mast 90% and I am amazed how powerful and easy to ride with the wind between 25-40 kn and bump and jump conditions. Very easy to calm down when overpowered, exceptional in a power jibe, precise and easy to switch.
Very fast, but fully controllable all the time.
Best sail I used till now.
Thank you guys a lot, I really fealt the passion you embedded in this sail.

The Banzai is an extremely powerful sail. I was really surprised by how much power it gives the first time I used it. It is still light, not a heavy sail as you would expect from a 4 batten sail. It always rig well. It has a big range, you can stand it even with very strong wind. Overall, a great sail.

Hi Jason,

Just great feedback for the Banzais and Fringes, Banzais feeling a bit softer (due to decreased mast length I guess) and the Fringes more stable and therefore having a bigger range.
Much Mahalo,

I'm absolutely happy with my new Banzais 4.2 & 5.3, that replace my old sails (3.7, 4.2., 4.7 & 5.3) because the trimm possibilities. I proved yesterday in Denmark with a lot of wind my old 3.7 but my 4.2 ist better. Now i can sail with 2 sails and 2 masts to replace my old 4 sails with 3 masts.
Amazing sails, lot of power but very easy to handle and esthetically a masterwork, beautiful colors in great combination, nice details and top-quality-material.
Thanks a lot for your shared passion

Thank you everybody to make this stuff so amazing…

Love ya all

Hello Jason.

5 years with Banzai and you did the Magic again.

2016 is the best Banzai you have made so far.

Tried the 4.5 yesterday in very gusty and demanding conditions. From 10ms to like 15/16 ms.
Dead onshore to cross offshore in just one session.

The sail just felt right in the hands from first seconds on the water.
Crisp, fast, with good power and easy depower - when on the wave.

It feels like a Banzai 2014 version with a good twist at the top end - very well done.

I have been speaking with 4 customers - who have sailed theirs as well
- all 4 are over excited by the feeling of the 2016 Banzai.

The simplistic design and bright colors are fantastic as well - it easy to understand, why the warehouse in Spain are sold out 🙂

All the best from Denmark.

Hi Jason,

Many thanks for taking the time to answer my queries, very much appreciated.

By the time i sent the email through Goya website i noticed that the Goya mast section of the website had been updated with all the information, i.e. the 99% and 70%.

All is clear now and good to hear you have no intention of changing the curve, why change something which clearly works.

I have the 90% in 430 and 400 …and just ordered a 370 90%…..I also believe that the 90% made in the US is way stronger than the 70% made in Italy.

Sailing in breaking waves 90% is the way to go.

I’m very very happy with my Banzai 2015…but couldn’t resist and pre-ordered a 5.5 2016, looks like you’ve added more dacron in luff to make it slightly softer in feel.

I use both clew rings when rigging as i sail more side on shore, side shore conditions gives me nice power…if a bit overpowered, i use the bottom ring …and if sailing nice side off conditions (rare) then it’s lower ring.

It was hard choice between 5.5 and 5.3 ..but as both rig on a 430 i went 5.5 for low end performance…the thinking here is that if using lower ring and still a handful then it’s time to go on 5.0 and it makes sail selection easier ..sometimes too much choice is no good.

I switched brand sail earlier this year after 10 years on N.... … when I put my Banzai order in... the shop gave me a S... , so I went on a 5.3 S... on demo…had one full session on it …previously i had a few reaches on my friend ’s Banzai 4.5 and the choice was very clear….no contest Banzai was the way to go.

Keep up the good work
