GOYA CARRERA CARBON: FREE-RIDE/FREE-CARVE ON JET FUEL
The Goya Carrera Carbon Freecarve sailing experience prioritizes agility, packing horsepower into the board’s supreme build. The new shapes are shorter with a wider tail, yet narrower than the Volar Carbon, giving the new Carrera Carbon a wonderful touch of new school single fin feel. The Carrera Carbon boards fit between the One 3 Carbon and the Volar Carbon. Very fast to plane yet easier to gybe than the Volar.
The Carrera Carbon free-carve models are slightly narrower than their Volar free-ride siblings. They target advanced riders looking for a lively board that’s easier to trim on the tail, and while on rail.
There was a time when only race boards were built like the Carrera Carbon. There is no other Free-carve board built like it today. It utilizes a full carbon deck construction bringing the ultimate speed and lightness sensation to a broader audience. A sensation that up until now only racers could experience.
The Carrera Carbon is best matched with the Nexus Free-ride sail, Mark or Mark X. From rough seas to lighter winds to calmer lake conditions, the Carrera Carbon is jaw-droppingly fast and fun to carve. The new 2023 shapes expand the boards’ wind-range and responsiveness. Inspired by the success of the Proton Pr, we moved moved the volume flow further back, reduced overall length, keeping the rails more parallel further back, and most importantly, modifying the rocker and flat spot to improve overall control of the board.
The Goya Carrera Carbon Freecarve takes off in light of breezes and fly through the lulls. The whole bottom sits just on top of the water, and from the foot straps you can maintain total control and perfect trim. Entry into jibes and exit speed out has also improved significantly, making these boards an absolute joy to ride or race with your friends.
