The 3 Batten Goya Fringe is a surprisingly stable, super light, powerhouse of a wave sail. We love the Fringe for everything from side off schlog and surf, through high wind Bump and Jump, and even underpowered foiling! The sail is very compact and light feeling, so it's super easy to throw around and very responsive to changes in sheeting angle.
The BiPly version of the sail includes a scrim perimeter, and Goya's BiPly clear window material- basically two thin panels of film that are laminated together to give the sail a longer life span but with the same clarity and performance benefits of monofilm- light feel, crisp acceleration, and perfect visibility, now combined with a supple feel and enhanced UV protection.
Pure surf wave, and so very much more. The Fringe Pro is the most light-weight, smooth power delivering and effortless handling sail in the Goya wave range, and this is why it is Keith Teboul’s top pick, also a regular go to sail for Loick Lesauvage, as well as Jason Diffin’s personal favorite. The ultra-light weight fingertip handling feel combined with the huge window make the Fringe Pro feel like pure surfing, with a power assist. The “Direct Connect” foot batten back end to clew configuration really adds to the precise feel and handling of this maneuver wave sail. Easy power and finesse with a fingertip. Golden touch really describes the feeling of Fringe Pro in the surf.
But there’s much more than just wave performance that the Fringe Pro brings to the table. With the biggest size range of any model, 2.8 all the way up to 6.3, the Fringe Pro is an equally perfect choice for smaller riders seeking a lighter weight, easy handling rig feel, for training and light air cruising, for easy and effortless Freeride sailing, and also for foil windsurfing where the power to weight ratio is so important for creating lift in the lightest of winds. Recreational foil sailing is pure bliss with the Fringe Pro.
The Fringe Pro has a Bi-Ply window, UV protected, double layer laminated clear film that lasts 3x as long as mono film for cracking and is much more resistant to hard creases. Bi-ply represents a massive improvement in window film technology.

Pro Bi-Ply & Scrim
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.
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.
Scrim Luff Panels. The new Scrim luff panels are making the sails feel super crisp and quick, while still being flexible. It’s simply a lighter feeling in the hands. The beautiful thing about Scrim is the general silkiness of the material, so much the opposite of the hardness associated with most laminates. The practical thing about Scrim is that it comes back to zero after being loaded. It stays the same. Whereas Dacron grows at various rates as you use it.
Features. Carbon Stretch Control, Titanium Clew Ring, 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 wide upper leech Marker reinforcement prevents breakdown of the leech in strong wind conditions such as Pozo, the Gorge and Omaezaki.
