Goya Proton Pro – Race Single
Goya have been working super hard on this range of boards and are having success in a lot of the PWA events, Defi Wind and other international competitions. Even though the Proton is a full on slalom board it still has that Goya feel and control that you would expect from their boards.
The third version of the Proton Pro has an extremely wide wind range. The rockers have been substancially reworked, with a slightly lower entry rocker, improving planing and top speed significantly.
The outlines have gotten more parallel, meaning a wider tail for more power and a more comfortable stance as well as a slightly wider nose that gives a bit more lift and early planing. The deck has also been closely re-ex- amined and gotten flatter, so when you are gybing the boards are more stable. The deck around the footsteps has been made more comfortable so you can ride for longer and push harder.
The bottom shapes have been reworked with quite a lot more V and V-Concave through the entire board, giving it more power and easier railing possibilities, plus extra control. The double step cutouts are still very generous, but occupy slightly less area, less area meaning less resistance and therefor more speed, while the wider out- line delivers the lift needed in lighter winds. Specific size constructions for every size deliver a customized build, with carbon fibres going in specialized directions. Were the bigger boards demand more stiffness for increased efficiency, the small board come with slightly less, for more control. The rear 3/4 of the bottom come sanded bare.
