Freestylers Antoine Albert and Jay Lee talk about the latest Air Pro, pointing out their favorite facets.
Antoine Albert: “We worked a lot on the speed and pop of the Air Pro. When I tested it for the first time, I was blown away by the limitless acceleration that this board brings, even in super choppy conditions. That speed helps a lot to go higher especially in combination with the slightly changed tail that makes the pop easier. The Air Pro is a bit narrower and slightly smaller than its previous iteration, giving you more control in stronger wind and faster spins in the air, meaning its new shape is more radica. Further, we added a smaller volume to the range for super strong wind, smaller people and kids. The Air Pro in full production spec is following me all over the world and excels in all conditions, from Fuerteventura to Bonaire and New-Caledonia, and it allowed me to be 7th overall in last year’s PWA freestyle champoinship.”
Jay Lee: “The thick square tail design is a blessing, it gives you more grip and confidence to enter your moves faster, its release and pop send you flying higher, and it provides a wonderful forgiveness in sliding maneuvers.The Air Pro comes with an all new MFC GE Freestyle fin that works seamlessly with this new boards.”

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.
