The Custom Thruster from Goya is an amazing wave/bump and jump board! It has a flatter rocker than most wave boards, but still a very aggressive outline, tail, and rails- so it planes up early and is super fast, but still turns like crazy! It is equally at home in side off and side on waves, as well as general high wind bump and jump locations.
This particular board is in excellent condition, with only one tiny little paint chip to show that it's ever been out of the box! (See Pics)
Custom Pro Surfwave Thruster
The ALL NEW 2018 Goya Custom Thruster is designed to fit right in between their Quad wave board and their One freestyle wave board. If you're looking for an all out hardcore wave board, but prefer the feel of a single fin or thruster setup over that of a quad, then this is the board for you! The Custom Thruster still has a flatter rocker than many other pure wave boards, so it planes up super early and is quite fast, but don't be fooled- the amount of maneuverability that Goya has packed into this shape is second to none!
Our new dedicated Thruster wave board shapes finally unite the spice of our Custom Quads with the added thrust and full turns that a thruster fin setups are known for. These new shapes increase speed and forward drive as you turn either at the top or bottom of the wave, opening more doors to your sailing. With the fine adjustments of the bottom shape, outline and faster rockers, the Custom Thrusters maximize the feel and ride in side-shore or on-shore conditions for all riders.
The Thruster features a slightly fuller outline than the Quad and runs a shallower Vee/Double Concave through the whole bottom of the board. It comes with a three-phase Medium/Fast Rocker and very balanced volume distribution. The biting Thurster fins are positioned slightly back to improve forceful maneuverability. These boards are instant and true favorites.
The wide points naturally move back a little this season, not by increasing the tail area but through narrower nose outlines. This change makes the Custom Thruster more agile and fun.
The bottom features a vee with concaves, with the strongest concaves between your stance for grip, and Vee Double Concave toward the front, basically a hybrid between the Custom Quad and the One Thruster. The Custom Thruster comes with a bump wing at one foot off the tail.
Like all wave boards in this season’s line the Thruster is more buoyant by giving them a modern volume displacement through the middle compared to what are by now traditional wider, flatter wave boards.

Pro Carbon & S-Glass
Fused Cell Core. The Goya Pro Carbon & S-Glass construction comes 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.
Hyper Skin HD. The entire board is covered in Hyper Skin HD. Hyper Skin is Goya’s proprietary High Density Foam Sandwich, delivering an immensely rigid structure at an extremely light weight. Covering deck, rails and bottom in it, gives Goya Pro boards their incomparable flex and longevity. A third stronger, stiffer and lighter than conventional boards.
Biaxial Carbon & Unidirectional Carbon. Extensive patches of biaxial carbon connect the peak loads of your feet to the rest of the deck, distributing the forces resulting from jumping and waveriding evenly. Additionally, a long and wide deck carbon patch acts as a superior backbone, making you board stiffer and eliminating distortions.
Full S-Glass Hull. S-Glass covers the board 360°. S-Glass provides higher strength and elasticity compared to standard glass, while maintaining more flex than Carbon. Flex is a super important secret to an outstanding Wave board. A full Carbon Wave board would be too stiff to deliver the agility required by radical modern wavesailing. We use a highest quality full S-Glass hull in combination with a highest quality Carbon stance monocoque and core axis reinforcement to meticulously control the flex in our boards. Controlling this flex is a key to what makes Goya Pro Wave boards special and inimitable.
