Gabriel Browne, PWA team rider
The line has three sizes and is totally focussed on racing performance. We talk about winning races, wherever you want, no matter the condition. These three sizes cover any wind range. During testing on Maui we sailed in all different kinds of conditions, from heavy swells to flat speed places, strong onshore squalls to morning offshore breezes, and I’m absolutely happy with how these boards came out.
The 96 is a strong wind machine, focussed on offering ultimate control and precise jibing, along with maximum speed. When racing in strong winds with the PWA we need something very easy and comfortable to handle, so that we can focus on our tactics. The 116 has a incredible wind range and suits sails from 6,5 to 8,5 perfectly. It is designed to be in the top level of efficiency and performance on any race course.
The 136 is a light wind killer. With the wider tail shape this board planes very very early and jibes like nothing else. The Proton Pro range has been refined to the T, with rail shapes designed to deliver the best performance and control. The bottom shape is a pure slalom powerhouse, with every single millimeter dialed to make sure these boards are perfectly accurate. No compromise. The concave deck shape allows the sailor a maximum level of comfort and reduced friction, within the spectrum of the discipline.

Founder Francisco Goya,
I work together with a team that been focusing their whole life around windsurfing, the office, showroom, loft and factory are in Haiku, 5 minutes away from one of the most consistent and mixed conditions in the world to ride on. The mixed conditions that Maui has to offer along with a huge amount of visitors from all over the world, allow us to test the gear ourselves and receive direct feedback from our customers. So everyday we ride and hear feedback that is put back into the products, business and sport. All revolve around our passion and development for the ultimate ride, company and sport. When the new years gear arrive I’m just as excited about it as I was with my first board 25 years ago.
