Marcilio Browne: “I’ve been riding the Thruster a few times now and got a great fun feeling from it. It pivots more than the Quad and this makes a board with more volume seem smaller while turning, especially when on a smaller wave that’s providing less speed. The Thruster is great to go vertical and release the tail.
I enjoy riding the Custom Pro Thruster on days that are a bit more onshore at Hookipa. It carries speed and feels very loose, which allows me to ride more volume on the board and compensate by having a smaller sail which turned out to be a really fun combo.
When Hookipa is mast high and clean, I personally ride a Custom Pro Quad as I feel like it gives me a bit more control while going full speed, digging into the bottom turn and going for big open face carves. But as soon as the days are smaller, and not super offshore, I have been having more and more fun on the Thruster, it’s a new refreshing feeling for me that seems to fit well with smaller and slower waves.”

Pro Carbon & S-Glass
Fused Cell Core. Goya boards come 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.
