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!

Manufacturer's Comments:

 

Banzai Pro Powerwave 4 Batten

The 2018 Banzai is the result of nearly 2 years of dedicated R&D Marcilio Browne, Levi Siver and other top team riders. This new design gives you easier flexible power, mindless control, and massively improved range, especially in challenging conditions.

Reduced luff lengths in sizes 4.2 to 5.5 open the possibility to use 370 or 400 mast in 4.7, and 400 or 430 mast in 5.5. The shorter mast option creates a lighter, more flexible rig, while the longer mast option creates more fixed power and drive in the sail. New shape and profile cuts give the Banzai a more progressive threedimensional profile and twist characteristic that give the sail chameleon skills.

New Bi-Ply window shapes significantly increase the viewing area through the sail and make it easier to pick your line across the water. We have updated the material in the tack and foot of the sail, the area that sees the most impacts and damage with stronger film and yarn configurations.

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 blue & red or yellow & black.

Recommended wave mast RDM 90.
Recommended flatwater mast RDM 70.

 

Construction:

Pro Scrim & Bi-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.

Bi-Ply Window Panels. Bi-Ply has the visibility and firmness of monofilm, but lasts three times longer, for multiple reasons. Our 6 mil Bi-Ply is made from 2 layers of 3 mil film, laminated together with glue containing a UV inhibitor which greatly extends the life of the film. By being made from 2 thinner layers, the material is more flexible, stays more supple longer and offers much more resistance to the creasing and eventual breaking that monofilm can suffer. This is really big news as it is a material that offers a more durable alternative to monofilm, with the same perfect clarity. All Goya films, including Scrim, Bi-Ply and X-Ply are made in the USA by Dimension Polyant ® to the highest standards of sail cloth technology. What this means is supreme quality control and film consistency.

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.
