Goya FXR 145

Jun 18, 2009

V: 145 L: 258 W: 75
Last year’s “easiest board for getting into the straps” retains its title. The Goya FXR, with a wide tail and perfectly placed inboard strap setting, provides plenty of stability and a decent rider position to all first-time shortboarders. Even in choppy water it does its best to dampen the ride and accelerate at a pace that won’t force progressing sailors to lose faith. As the rider gains confidence in his or her new skills by moving the straps outboard they can push themselves to higher speeds. In this setup the quality of the new MFC Liquid Pro fin is noticeable as we found more speed in the FXR than we did last year with a weed fin. First-time jibers will gain confidence from a wide-arcing turn and find that a full planing jibe is easily within reach. For advanced jibers, it feels almost too easy as there is no added reward for finely tuned technique. goyasails.com
