Forward to the roots. Forward to what matters. Family, friends, and time on the water is what it’s all about. To us, and to our Ohana of distributors, shops, and loyal riders around the globe.
Life’s short, so when you actually have time to get on the water, we want to make sure you enjoy those hours as much as possible. We love to windsurf, and we love blending the best of surfing into it. The 2022/23 board range, from shape to design, is about the pleasure of surfing, empowered by the wind.
Speaking strictly for us, we have the most pleasure, the most fun, when we’re on gear that rips, when we feel in control, when we’re in our element. The new 2022/23 Quatro range puts you in your element. It’s not about being the fastest, or the highest. Been there, done that.
This range is about maximum grip, maximum downforce, maximum confidence. And it’s about you. Your session. Your moves. Your style. The absolute you, not the realitive you, when comparing yourself. Not relative pleasure. Absolute pleasure.

We started the company back in 1994, with four partners, from 4 different corners of the world, we called it Quatro.
At first, we just wanted to make better boards for ourselves, but before the end of the year, we had 7 of the top 10 riders in the world cup on them. Quatro remained the Custom board brand developing the first Vacuum Sandwich, CNC shapes, Quad Fins, and the board with the most undercover wave world titles.
Ten years later in 2004 we launched Goya Windsurfing, the fully integrated windsurfing brand, from world cup Wave to Freeride and Beginner boards, sails & components. Today Marcilio is the only rider on the top of the wave tour choosing stock models to compete on, the same straight off the rack products that any of our customers are riding on.
Another ten years later, in 2014, all the while building surfboards, we launched KT Surfing, our surfers wanted their own thing, their own story, so Quatro, Goya, and KT are now all brands under the Forward Maui umbrella. We also do the European and American distribution of MFC Hawaii.
Why we do it? Because we love it too much, we want people to experience what we feel when we ride. Good gear changes the experience of a sport a a whole, and creating a culture with our values is our dream, this is our way of bringing the best of us to the world.

"I've been sailing Simmer Sails for years now, and they just keep getting better! After 30+ years of wave sailing, I have tested and gone through plenty of gear. Simmer now makes some amazng waveboards, booms, masts, and bases. I sails at Waddell primarily, and I sail a lot. I will continue using Simmer equipment. Now I am buying equipment through James at Van Surfsports, and he really makes it a pleasure to do business, and at very fair prices.
Keep sailing, and stay young."
