OCEAN MINDED

KEEP IT GREEN

CAD SHAPING

Fanatic has an Ocean Minded ethos; protect what you love, which is why every board proudly displays the Fanatic Ocean Minded Logo. We promise to build boards for a greener environment, using ethically sourced and sustainable raw materials wherever possible. Fanatic is one of the few brands to use eco friendly Cork. Our mission is to improve our manufacturing process by constantly fine tuning and researching our construction techniques, packaging materials and distribution methods – all for a fresh Fanatic future.

Whilst creating new products, our primary goal is to reduce ecological impacts on the environment and use ethically sourced raw materials. Advancing in our construction techniques, significant performance gains have been achieved. In 2016 we continue to use the ultra stiff, impact resistant Innegra instead of Kevlar for lighter layups, and maintain the use of recyclable Basalt, Bamboo and Cork.

Sebastian Wenzel has achieved great things in his shaping career and with over a decade of CAD experience under his belt, there is no question that he is one of the leading experts on computer aided board design. CAD shaping provides board builders with a platform to accomplish unprecedented levels of precision in the designs they produce and Sebastian does just that. CAD also allows us to store every board built since 2004 on a digital data­ base so we can evolve, push boundaries and innovate, rather than recreate. Sebastian’s decades of board building knowledge and experience is funnelled into every design created. Through Sebastian’s lead and the collaboration of every Fanatic team member, we continue to build on our already existing library of facts, figures, successful shapes, proven rocker lines, volume flows and rail lines. As we advance it’s clear to see that Fanatic CAD shaping techniques work as our boards keep getting better. FACT.

  Top quality, high spec Biax Carbon has an impeccable weight to stiffness ratio, including a fantastic dynamic flex as result of its very fine weave. Used for all Falcon 12’6” and 14’0” models as well as the Strike, maximum stiffness, along with a new matt finish optic, results in maximum weight savings.

  A lightweight, yet robust, wood and glass fibre construction gives a great strength to weight ratio and combined with some extra glass reinforcements absorbs high impact forces. The outcome is a very durable layup with a lightweight and unique wooden deck visual.

  Innegra Carbon Sandwich is a new, strong and super light layup perfectly suited to all our ProWave LTD, Stubby LTD and AllWave LTD models. Innegra Carbon is a lighter and more impact resistant material than Carbon Kevlar which, when combined with a single PVC / Wood Sandwich and Wood / Carbon heel reinforcements, guarantees the most efficient construction in terms of lightweight and maximum resistance against impact.

Our high performance wave SUP range comes in seven different shapes and sizes. From the small 7’6”, up to our 9’10” Semi Gun we’ve got everything covered. Whether you’re going for those radical hacks in sloppy beach breaks, shredding fast and powerful reef breaks, or charging the massive Shipsterns Bluff, we’re sure there’s a ride for you in our ProWave line. The ProWave line has evolved over the last couple of years into one of the widest ranges we offer, and underlines the needs of our international Team Riders who are pushing the boundaries of powerful performance surfing. Balanced and easy to paddle, they remain radical once unleashed onto a wave offering a responsive ride with quick acceleration and great speeds. The single into double concave bottom, surfy rocker line and biting rail shape allows for deep gouging carves, whilst the squash tail enhances tight arcs in the pocket. An increased nose width and evenly distributed volume flow gives the ProWave superb paddling efficiency, handling mushy day’s with ease. As you charge down the line its flow is unprecedented, providing you with confidence and comfort even on the biggest days. The 9’10” Semi Gun is a stretched out and narrower version of the ProWave, designed for charging big waves with speed and control. Its famous reputation remains as the first SUP to conquer the monster Shipstern’s Bluff, Tasmania! The ProWave comes with five boxes to give choice for either the Quad or Thruster Fin setup, for flexibility to adapt the board to your style of riding or suit the conditions on the day.

The Stubby represents a new approach to Waveboard design. Inspired by modern surfing concepts with a compact outline and more parallel rails, the Stubby combines stability and ease of use with speed and radical responsiveness. A new sensation that will give you a blast! Since the beginning of the year 2014 we started experimenting with the concept of shorter, more parallel outlines with super wide nose and tail sections. What started as a fun project quickly became an exciting reality. 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 extra stability allows for less volume and a slightly narrower center. The double diamond tail – which we reduced over time to a functional width – provides the grip to dig deep in tight carves and hacks into the pocket. A surfy rocker line offers all the fast reactions and flow you’d expect from a high performance wave toy. 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). Both sizes are available in our incredible Carbon Innegra LTD construction to round off this powerful package.

The name say’s it all! The AllWave range will give you a blast wherever you decide to take it. Available in seven sizes – from the snappy 7’11” to the floaty 9’8” – we guarantee unbeatable fun in all types of waves. It’s easy-peasy surfing action with surprisingly radical performance attributes. The 2016 AllWave range is built on the success of the three, new smaller models we introduced in 2015. The wider, thinner and more compact shapes provide an easy yet highly responsive ride. Thinner rails and less volume deliver a grippy carve, while tight arcs and supreme slashing abilities are supported by the wide, compact outline and the snappy squash tail. The fast rocker line and stable stance offers straightforward wave catching characteristics and good speed, leaving you to focus 100 % on the wave. The four new larger sizes follow these design attributes, but feature a different rocker / bottom combination to please the heavier rider and offer the easiest possible entry into the waves. These models smoothly increase in length and volume per size, with minimal additional width. The result is smooth waveriding and flow all the way up to the 9’8”. Whether conditions are choppy, small and testing or true overhead perfection, the AllWave is the ultimate tool for your enjoyment, ease and progression. We offer the AllWave in our lightweight and high performance LTD construction, coming with a five box Quad and Thruster option across the range for maximum adaptability. It is also available in our impact resistant and top value HRS or Pure constructions, with five boxes in the smaller sizes and a Thruster setup in the larger sizes. All boards are equipped with a mastfoot insert for windsurfing option.

Heads up Longboard riders! If you’re into the classic style of Longboard surfing, this beauty will win over your heart after the first ride. A Stylemaster from nose to toe, with an insane glide! As a classic noserider, this board is more influenced by Longboard surfing than any other board in our range. A low entry scoop-rocker line, harmonic surfing curve, lightly domed deck and zero compromise surfboard rails are the ingredients for the Stylemaster’s flow. The wide nose leaves plenty of room for creative riding, while its single concave into double concave / V bottom towards the tail supports the incredible wave catching potential of this crowd pleaser. The drawn-in tail is complemented by a 2 + 1 (sidebites plus Single Fin) Longboard fin setup. Easy to paddle, its super advanced surfing potential allows the deepest carves and flow, whilst you style up and down the wave with your toes ›hanging loose‹. Available in our beautiful and supreme Wood Edition and classic length of 10’0”, the deluxe deck pad for cushioned steps is strategically placed in the main stance area for added comfort.

The quintessential SUP range for everyone. From newbie to the more experienced paddler, the Fly’s all-round shape provides an effortless, smooth glide across flat water including small to mid-sized waves. SUP fun on the Fly! The Fly family comes in a broad range of sizes and constructions to accommodate every individual’s needs. Evolved from the early days of the sport, these shapes combine all levels of experience. From those first steps on a SUP, all the way through to those who have been taking part in the sport since the beginning. Four classic pintail shapes – starting with the new 9’6” for lighter / medium weight riders, up to the brand-new super stable and floaty 11’2”, that gives the greatest deal of buoyancy – will have you cruising comfortably into every wave you desire. The lower entry scoop-rocker line offers smooth paddling, while direct turning is supported by a more pronounced curve in the tail. A well balanced and wide volume distribution caters for easy steps back and forth on the deluxe deck pad, whilst riding the wave in a Longboard style. The V bottom holds great yet controlled speeds and supports the efficient rail to rail performance, defined by the rail’s shape. These attributes are clean and consistent throughout the Fly line. The medium 10’6” is available in the classic and wide body version (WB), carrying one extra inch of width for additional stability and float. Whilst all Fly’s can be used for windsurfing (excluding 10’6” WB), the 11’2” comes in two versions, one of which features a sealable center fin option, making this board the ultimate transformer from SUP to Windsurf and vice versa. Whether it’s breezy or glassy, you and your loved ones will be out there enjoying that highly sought after glide on the water. All five models are available in our light yet strong High Resistance Skin (HRS), as well as our top value Pure construction. In addition to this, we offer the 9’6” and the classic 10’6” model in our superlight and precious Wood Edition (WE).

The 2016 Falcon is the weapon of choice in all-round SUP racing. From flat water to extreme open ocean conditions, the Falcon will get you there first. Our international Design- and Race-Team invested a huge amount of effort to develop the new Falcon models, which represent a great step forward in Raceboard design. The overall speed during a race is influenced largely by the way the board gets on and over chop while maintaining a clean and long waterline. That’s why we put great focus on the rocker line and the nose area of the board. While the low rocker entry with a smooth curve throughout the board ensures a maximum speed waterline in marginal chop and flat water conditions, the nose area features high apex rails with a rounded bottom that just glides over any chop and skims across the water beautifully maintaining an uninterrupted and incredibly fast glide when conditions get rough. This combination results in a massive performance advantage and at the same time offers easy non self-steering paddling and forgiving re-adjustments when catching runners. Hard edges from center to tail ensure stability and a clean water release. The open flat-V deck allows for quickest manoeuvres, while side wind effects are reduced to the minimum by the new low volume bow. Acceleration and response time of the 2016 Falcon is enhanced by its feather light construction of carbon sandwich. The new Falcon comes in width of 24.75” and 26.75” in both 12’6” and 14’0” – joining our two accessible 29.75” wide Falcons in the respective lengths. The 14’0” features a drop-pintail outline for maximum control and low drag release, while the wider tail of the 12’6” offers great turning abilities – the winning formula when your path to the podium leads through the surf. All six Falcons come with a specially designed RTM Race fin. The 2016 Falcon is incredibly fast from flat water all the way to rough and choppy conditions and an absolute pleasure to paddle in extreme Downwinders – if you are lucky enough to get them.

The Strike is a zero compromise long distance flatwater racing machine. Developed for pure function and top average speeds, it’s the formula needed to win races.

—— Minimum curved scoop rocker line from tail to nose for maximized waterline and clean release

After intense research and development over the last year, including hydrodynamic studies and diligent testing of our Pro Team, our Falcon flatwater line evolved into the Strike. A line that consists of two highly tuned 14’0” feet carbon hulls in widths of 24” and 26.75”.

—— Narrow, parallel outlines for the best combination of speed, low drag and stability

A deep cutting bow flawlessly separates both glassy and choppy waters, whilst the rounded bottom into V releases the tail so it can glide unhindered across the surface. The new nose section is key for the high average and top speeds that are easily maintained with the Strike. The flaps on either side keep the nose up and the waterline clean and uninterrupted with each stroke. As a consequence, we were able to reduce the rocker curve to a minimum, which resulted in a maximized waterline for super consistent glide, a winning factor from start to finish. The new bow design prevents water coming onboard, as a result we were able to reduce the curve of the deck. Less sensitivity to wind and chop are additional improvements to further extend your lead when conditions get rough. A wide squaretail offers quick turning and extra stability in all situations. Our high tech Carbon Technology and a specially designed RTM Race Fin underline our relentless pursuit of perfection in SUP racing design.

—— Deep cutting bow combined with new rail-flaps for optimized water dispersal and limited nose diving for a constant water flow —— Wide square tail allows for quick kick turning and additional stability —— Lightly round bottom shape for highest speeds, transforming into a V in the tail for stable and neutral behavior —— Flat V-deck shape in the standing area for quick water drainage —— Volume pulled all the way to the rails for maximum stability —— New low volume curve in the nose to minimize side wind effects and reduced nose weight —— CAD analyzed precision

FLY AIR FIT & PLATFORM

On the days when the wind started to exceed 40 knots, we took the Island and Fit boards to the Le Mas camping swimming pool for a peaceful SUP yoga session, floating in a lovely pool with the sun setting in the distance. A perfect compliment to a day spent paddling in the open sea, swell and wind. I must admit, when I saw the strong wind forecast for Marseille and Carro, I was slightly concerned and skeptical about being able to do a SUP-Yoga photoshoot! However, thanks to an excellent team, and fantastically designed platform and boards, there turned out to be many places and possibilities to pump up and do it! Thanks to this great innovation from Fanatic, we managed to find our balance and stable base, to connect with the ocean and elements, and tune up the body and mind.

The Fanatic Island is a very exciting concept, and as a yoga teacher and SUP-Yoga / Fitness developer, I was very keen to get on it and try it out, especially with my fellow Fanatic team mates in the South of France! We found some ideal and stunning locations, coves and beaches around Carro in the south of France, ideal for pumping up and planting the Island and Fit boards, doing a group SUP-Yoga session, then going exploring, paddling around the beautiful coastline and coves, and returning to our Island base to stretch out tight muscles and have a floating relaxation after all that paddling!

A small turquoise river rises up in the middle of the Alps close to Austria, and the cold, wild water rushes through a narrow canyon. The moss covered stones transform the dangerous canyon into a magical fairytale landscape. The river flows from a right turn to a left turn, and then right again like a water slide.

ALL YOU CAN HEAR IS THE SOUND OF THE RUSHING WATER AND THE HEARTBEAT PUMPING. M

The water level was perfect as it had been raining on the previous days. We only had one day, as the dangerous Bavarian Alps thunderstorms were forecasted to return by the evening. In the panorama of the Zugspitze, Germany’s highest mountain, we eventually found our starting point. I paddled down the mountain river on the brand new Rapid Air. The river has a downward flow angle of 12 % – in a class of its’ own. This beautiful trip was once again proof that with the right equipment it is possible to have a really great experience, with minimal danger.

BERLIN ON AIR ”I ALWAYS WANTED TO PADDLE WITH NEPTUNE!” KAI-NICOLAS STEIMER

Pompous, unique and world famous – welcome to the capital of Germany. Fanatic riders Paulina Herpel, Phine Scheibe, Kai-Nicolas Steimer and Klaas Voget paddled the Fat B at the Spree. »Sorry, this is the end«. »End?« »Yes, you are not allowed to paddle further, unless you have a radio set and a motor on board!« It seems like the rules are pretty strict on German Chancellor Angela Merkels’ doorstep … especially when a visit from Israel is taking place. Patrick, our local contact, had already

warned us »if you want to paddle through the government district you have to get up very early!« We turn around and paddle in the direction of the Victory Column, as slowly life around us seems to begin, and the first tourists show up at the riverside. It’s pretty cool to quietly paddle far away from the hustle and bustle we are used to from this big city. Berlin is known as a hip city all over the globe. We stop at the Dome and buy some wraps where we see

tourists from all countries. Before taking the underground to the Technology Museum, we stop at the Neptune fountain for a quick cool down. After that we carry on to the Oberbaumbrücke to paddle with the »Molecule Man« figures. It was not very easy to get access to the Spree, but eventually we hit it directly next to the famous Badeschiff pool. As the sun slowly set over Berlin, we stopped at the Club of Visionaries for a quick sundowner. For sure we will be back Berlin – that was fun!

Pure fun ready to be taken away. The Fly Air is the ultimate toy that everyone can enjoy. Easy to carry, straightforward to set up, strong, stiff and durable, our neatly packed Fly Air’s inflate into four finely tuned shapes for flatwater fun and small surf action. Inspired by our popular Fly range, the Fly Air is the convenient answer to limited storage, city life and travellers’ demands. The all-round Longboard style outline offers a great mix of glide, stability and all terrain versatility. Optimized thickness provides outstanding rigidity without additional air pressure, whilst the extra volume caters to those looking for an even easier ride. The Fly Air comes in four sizes, 9’0”, 9’8”, 10’4” and the super floaty 10’8”. Additional Side Fins gives extra grip throughout the turns and when riding smaller waves. To underline our leading standards in terms of quality, design and durability, we offer the Fly Air in two constructions; our Lightweight Stringer Technology, with additional coloured rail band, as well as our Premium construction with Double Layer Light Technology, featuring a second PVC layer directly welded to the core layers around the V-Drop Stitch material – the heart of each Fanatic inflatable board. The additional third layer of coloured rail bands round off the highly durable quality and the unmatched optics of the stylish deck print. We save around 20 – 25 % of weight when compared to the standard Double Layer Technology, and offer around 25 – 30 % more stiffness in comparison to a standard construction. Quite simply, this is the best inflatable SUP construction available on the market. Great attention to detail ensures fast and easy inflate / deflate functions, and both constructions are delivered with our ergonomically improved Fanatic Power Pump. While the Fly Air is packed in our comfy standard backpack with included storage compartments, padded straps and waist belt, the Fly Air Premium comes in the new Wheely Backpack combo design, which includes a new easy entry zipper making it the pleasant choice for effortless transportation. All our Premium Fly Air models feature a mastfoot insert for windsurfing option.

Touring, exploring and discovering is part of what makes Stand Up Paddling so fascinating. The Ray Air is the inflatable version of our Ray – a cruiser with immense glide to get you into new territories comfortably. With similar characteristics to its solid equivalent, the Ray Air has a maximized waterline that combines both stability and glide. The two sizes of 11’6” and 12’6” are significantly faster than last years Fly Air Touring, thanks to a reduced tail width resulting in a cleaner flow of undisturbed paddle strokes. The center width of 31” and 32” make both models very easy to paddle and to keep your balance on, even if you’re a first timer. The optimized thickness of the Ray Air has improved it’s rigidity without additional air pressure, while the extra volume keeps you up and dry. We’re offering the Ray Air in two high quality constructions; our light weight and durable Stringer Technology, which comes with additional colour rail support and a lower price point, as well as our Premium construction – the state of the art of inflatable SUP Double Layer Technology. With a reduction in weight of around 20 – 25 % when compared to a standard double layer construction – it’s significantly stiffer in comparison to the single layer iSUP – you won’t find anything better. The Ray Air Premium comes in a new Wheely Backpack combo with easy entry zipper and all the convenient straps and compartments you need to carry your Ray Air Premium. A mastfoot insert for optional windsurfing rounds off the Premium package. The Ray Air is packed in our organized standard backpack with padded straps and all the toys and features in place. Both models are easy to inflate with our new ergonomic Fanatic Power Pump.

A long and narrow waterline, stiff and still lightweight – that’s what counts when it comes to SUP racing. With our new high-tech Double Layer Light Technology we’re as close as it gets to the performance of our Carbon Falcon range – just in a way more convenient way to transport your missile. To povide a race winning machine for the major board classes for every riders size, we’re offering two Falcon Air 12’6” (26.5” and 29” wide), as well as two 14’0”-footer in the same widths. The pre-bent cuttom curve is adjusted to the boards natural bend when the rider is up and racing. Through an optimized thickness we achieved an even higher stiffness, while saving about 20 – 25 % of weight with the new technology. With increased volume the stability and floatation is alltime for such narrow boards. The immense glide and efficiency of the Falcon Air ensures that you are far in front of the rest when crossing the finish line. Produced in our new Premium Construction the Falcon Air comes with the best possible ratio of stiffness and light weight. Transport and packing issues are over with our new wheely / backpack combo includuding an easy entry zipper and all the convenient straps and compartments, accomodating also the new ergonomic Fanatic Power Pump and the moulded tool-free US-Box Race Fin.

Following the success of our Fly Air all-round boards and the Falcon Air, we offer two smaller kids models – Ripper Air and Ripper Race - so the whole family can now have fun together and take pleasure in the ease of these SUPs. At 7’10”, the Ripper Air is the perfect Inflatable for all-round fun on the water. The size and width creates the ultimate stable platform for first timers, and those looking to ride their first small waves. The innovative design makes it especially user-friendly, whilst our lightweight and high quality Stringer Technology will guarantee that the kids love this little toy. The 10’0” Ripper Race is based around our Falcon Air design. With only 26” total width, they will be the one to beat around the race course. The wider tail provides a great deal of stability and balance whilst maintaining playful turning capabilities. Produced in the highest inflatable SUP construction available - our Double Layer Light Technology – the Ripper Race is of equal stiffness, design and high tech quality as its larger role model. The Ripper Air comes packed in our convenient all-in backpack, while the Ripper Race comes in our premium Wheely Backpack combo. As both models come in lightweight constructions, these SUPs are easy to transport even for the youngest of riders who wants to carry their own. Our new Fanatic Power Pump caters for super quick and easy inflation. The handy deck net enhances the feeling of freedom for your mini adventurer, so they can take those added extras with them.

PADDLES WITH POWER FANATIC UNION JOINT SYSTEM VS. CLASSIC JOINT SYSTEM UNION CONNECTION

You’re only as fast as your weakest link – and with the new reworked and highly tuned Fanatic paddle range, we can guarantee that link won't be in your hands. With precision and care we have designed paddles in new materials and new optics which are strong and light, with the perfect amount of flex to deliver maximum power while allowing you to paddle in total comfort and style. We offer the perfect choice from beginner to pro – for both genders, every size and age. Grab a Fanatic paddle and take a stroke!

CONSTANT CURVE FLEX

CLASSIC CONNECTION

PRO MODEL – CARBON PRO 100 FIX LENGTH

FLEX ON ONE POINT

In the past, all paddle flex patterns were made up of two parts: the blade, and the shaft. These two flexible parts were disrupted by an oversized stiff joint, where paddle and shaft were connected. The Fanatic Union paddle has revolutionised the unified flex pattern. It now runs seamlessly from the tip of the blade all the way to the shaft. By moving the connection joint further up the shaft, it tapers perfectly into a RDM joint, resulting in constant flex for an unmatched spring and response with every stroke. From the moment the blade enters the water your energy is converted into forward drive. The Union paddle is available in four construction styles for a straightforward selection of paddles to match your performance and budget.

Combined with our Union paddle design and its 100 % 3 K Carbon shaft, it is strong yet one of the lightest paddles around. With a reduction in swing weight, this paddle has an ultra fast flex response from the tip of the blade right through to the top of the handle, which also shines in precious 12 K Carbon. The Carbon Pro paddle is available in both 7.25” and 8” blades. Each has an integrated ABS blade protector and is available in fixed or adjustable shaft lengths.

Our Carbon 80 is the high performance choice for the ambitious paddler. Top flex and response is guaranteed for effortless handling through an 80 % Carbon blade and shaft plus additional Kevlar shaft webbing. Available in 7.25” and 8” blades, the Union system has the most supreme flex pattern running from the top of the handle to the tip of the blade. Fixed or adjustable shaft lengths, or even as adjustable 3-piece version, with a built in ABS blade protector, you’re sure to have the most effective paddle stroke on the water.
