Magic sail

I'm not sponsored by anyone, I spent my hard-earned cash on this sail and I couldn't be happier.
I sail in side-on serious washer-machine stuff on the Southern Outer Banks with a wide sandbar 50-100ft offshore. You have to make your inside gybe and pick up speed quickly or else you get crushed.
I've been using the 6.3, yes, 6.3. Most of us don't live in Maui or the Gorge, and have to sail in 15-20mph real world waves. Believe me, the 6.3 is more than enough.
The Banzai has real instant power when you need it. I guess because of the long battens above the boom you can sort of wip the mast from a raked windward position to an upright position and bam, you are flying into the wave. It pumps a bit differently then most sails, but wow, the power is strong and quick when you need it. Then, when you are airborne, you can tap into that power again and get some crazy lift and yet, I felt completely in control. I found myself laughing maniacally yesterday sailing in head high waves. I felt like the priest in Caddy Shack golfing the best game of his life just before he got struck by lightning, and I hate golf. The sail is that much fun and different from other sails.
It also can truly span a huge wind range. Just watch the video on rigging, basically use the lower ring outhaul for over-powered conditions.
I love the sail.

 

 

 

 

The Goya Banzai is an incredibly powerful and responsive wave sail, which works equally well for bump and jump blasting as it does for sailing down the line at Ho'okipa.  If you enjoy a light feeling sail that powers up instantly as soon as you sheet in, the Banzai is for you!  The 4 batten frame offers a surprising amount of stability when overpowered, which when combined with the two clew options, allows the Banzai to have incredible wind range both under AND overpowered.

We've used the Banzai on quad and thruster wave boards, freestyle wave boards, and while foiling, and LOVE the pumpable power and responsive nature of the sail!

The Banzai X is the state-of-the-art, full throttle, explosive power, technical jump and maneuver World Cup performance wave sail. Plus added armor.

The Banzai X provides instant yet flexible power with very light handling and a massive range in a wide variety of conditions. Equally at home in straight onshore wind and stormy surf, or brushed offshore reef break perfection the Banzai will give you the speed, control and confidence you need to push your performance level. The Banzai is designed to give you the power and neutral handling you need on the water, and the easy, reactive, finger-tip control you need in the air. It also excels in jump and maneuver sailing.

Construction

Pro Scrim & X-Ply

Scrim Body Panels. The colored Scrim material used in the main panels offers super strong durability, super light weight and a supple and alive feel throughout the sail.

X-Ply Window Panels. X-Ply offers the same weight and feel of a clear window construction. The difference is increased durability through improved tear resistance. X-Ply film reinforced with yarns is incredibly tear resistant, the perfect body panel material for people looking for maximum durability. Featured on Banzai X, Guru, Scion.

Hybrid dacron/scrim luff panels, Carbon Stretch Control, Poly Clew Titanium Clew Rings, Rip Stop Sleeve and a Molded Tack Fairing round off the peak quality package. Sleeve cut treatments as well as tack and foot reinforcements are now folded to increase durability and prevent edge fraying. A wider scalloped upper leech reinforcement prevents breakdown of the leech from fluttering in strong wind conditions such as Omaezaki, the Gorge and Pozo.
