Publication Date: July 10, List Price: The Duchess of Alba, known as Goya's muse, recalls the passions of youth on her deathbed in the royal court of eighteenth-century Madrid. A young woman defies the protocols of her arranged marriage and pursues love--and the life of a published writer--until her readers condemn her as a danger to society in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Nina Berberova escapes persecution during the Russian Revolution and flees to Paris, where the intelligentsia naively covet the promise of a Soviet Union.
These three women attempt to find passion and intimacy in worlds that rarely accommodate female desire. 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. Fused Cell Core. 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. 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. 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 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.
Self-portraits: By choronological order
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. The space below is yours to share your thoughts. Find existing reviews below.
