iRig – New era in windsurfing

Duotone -(NKB the world biggest Kite brand and NorthSails) market leader in Windsurfing rigs have joined forces to create the most innovative rig ever made.
The outcome is what we call best of both worlds: incredible low weight and packing dimensions achieved through inflatable Kite-technology combined with the appeal and safety of a Windsurf rig.

It is an unbeatable package making it the ideal addition to your SUP as an entry into the fascination of wind- powered sports.

On top the iRIG will revolutionize the Windsurfing Entry and Schooling as it’s 70% lighter than any conventional Windsurfing rig. Combined with the inflatable “mast” and “boom” parts the rig always floats on the water making starting and learning a piece of cake.

–  Super light weight with around 1,5 kg for very easy learning with instant success and for a very comfortable transport.
70% lighter than a standard Windsurf rig. Even the smallest people can use it. Very manoeuvrable & easy handling.
–  Fixed handle positions avoiding wrong positioning of your hands ! facilitates the learning process enormously. Fixed handle positions Identifies correct way to hold the sail, teaches users how to trim the sail. Faster learning, easier learning, more fun.
–  Completely inflatable construction without hard materials !
Reduces effort for rigging up tremendously (Pump & Go within 100 seconds) and gets risk for injuries nearly down to zero.
No fine-tuning, just pump it up & go.
Rigs up within 100 seconds & no parts to lose.
Safe to use for kids and beginners, no hard objects to hit or fall on –> super safe
–  “A3-size” packing dimensions achieved through inflatable Kite-technology ! very easy transport and storage
–  Unlike traditional Windsurf rigs the iRIG floats onto the water ! Very easy uphauling and a relaxed paddling home without drag in case of drifting too far away. Does not sink, therefore easy to lift and super safe. Quick & Easy to pull out of the water.
–  Super simple sizing with Small / Medium / Large (the correct size depends solely on your body height) ! makes it a no brainer to choose the right size.

NEW 2016 Fanatic Standup paddle board – THE STUBBY

The Fanatic Stubby represents a new approach to wave board design. Inspired by modern surfing concepts with a compact outline and more parallel rails.
The Fanatic Stubby combines good stability and ease of use of a bigger board, but with speed and radical responsiveness of a smaller board.
A new sensation that will give you a blast!
THE CONCEPT –
Fanatic Stubby -The wide nose enables a longer and cleaner rail line, which gives loads of hold on the wave face and through the turns even though the board is quite short 

The wide nose and tail enables the rider to select a slightly smaller board in terms of length and volume (as an example, the Stubby 8’2″ is comparable to an 8’9″ ProWave).
The extra stability allows for less volume and a slightly narrower centre.
Straighter, more parallel outline for a cleaner waterline and reduced dragShort and wide “Stubby-Nose” – reduced to the boards effective lengths […]
