The Banzai is the state-of-the-art, full throttle, explosive power, technical jump and manoeuvre world cup performance wave sail.
Banzai provides instant yet flexible power with very light handling alongside massive range in a wide variety of conditions. Equally at home in straight onshore wind and stormy surf, or brushed off-shore reef perfection – Banzai will give you the speed, control and confidence you need to push your performance level up. Banzai is designed to give you the power and neutral handling you need on the water, and the easy, reactive, finger tip control you need in the air. Banzai also excels in wave style flat water / chop jump and manoeuvre sailing. Banzai matches well with single or multi fin boards.

The Banzai 2018 is the result of nearly 2 years of dedicated R&D Marcilio Browne, Levi Siver and other top riders. The new design gives more of all the best features of Banzai-easy flexible power, mindless control, and massively improved range, especially in strong and challenging conditions. Reduced luff lengths in sized 4.2 – 5.5 open the possibility to use 370 or 400 mast 4.7, and 400 or 430 mast 5.5 shorter mast option crates a lighter, more flexible rig, while the longer mast option creates more fixed power and drive in the sail. New shape and profile cuts give the Banzai a more progressive three dimensional profile and twist characteristic that makes the sail like a chameleon that can adopt and excel in whatever conditions you encounter.

Simon Bassett took a trip to Tarifa to visit Goya & Quatro to find out more details about the new range. Take a look at his photos and also a video of Keith Taboul discussing some of the new elements.
