Fanatic Wave, Freewave & freestyle 2019 Range

Fanatic Highlights Wave & Freestyle Range 2019 from Fanatic International on Vimeo.
Fanatic launches their 2019 range;

The Grip
 Extremely versatile with multiple fin options and
shape designed to work both as a quad and tri-fin, giving maximum adaptability for preference or conditions

› Lightweight and easy to adjust slot-box fin system allows further tuning for conditions and preference. Moving the fins back (in either confguration) noticeably increases the speed and drive of the board, whilst moving them forward gives a much looser, more surfy feel

› High top speed and excellent comfort in chop, thanks to the double concave / V bottom shape

› Flat deck, great for stability in lighter winds
› The exact shape Victor Fernandez won the PWA World wave title on

Stubby

› Easier to sail than a conventional wave board

› Will atter your technique no matter what level you are at

On the one hand, it captivates with a manageable top performance, even in nuking spots such as the the high country lakes (Coleridge / Clearwater ) & Wellington, while remaining perfectly controllable even in fully overpowered jumping conditions.

On the other hand, it offers powerful acceleration at the lower wind limit, as you need for down the line riding on Maui or Mauritius, or grovelling out in onshore Canterbury conditions.

Designer Kai Hopf has moved up the batten above the boom increasing the gap to the foot batten similar to a 3 batten sail.
This FREE.BOOMZONE.CONCEPT provides an incredible on-off switch on the wave.
