Fly with the Eco Friendliest Materials

With the ocean minded spirit and sustainability awareness being the brand’s driving force to create and innovate, Fanatic’s Fly Eco Edition premium boards – available in 9’6″ & 10’6″ lengths – with a unique layup of flax, cork and wood – bring the organisation one step closer to accomplishing an eco-friendly future.

“I look forward to this time of the year to see the kit as it’s always been exciting to see the boards ahead of the game. With the worldwide launch of the 2020 range, what I’m already getting from everyone who had a sneak peek, is just WOW,” commented Jay Manning, who’ll be soon travelling with the new collection across the country for Fanatic demo days and social SUP events. “The 2020 range is funky, fresh and modern which makes the boards stick out of the water even more.

The ProWave is Fanatic’s radical powerhouse design for carving fast turns in solid overhead conditions – no better board for advanced riders to charge hard on. When things are bit mellower, the AllWave is a versatile platform for Intermediates to catch wave after wave, even when it’s mushy and choppy. For an even looser slashier feel, the super compact Stubby excels when the waves are less than perfect, always creating speed and flow through it’s highly efficient parallel rail design. Finally, the Stylemaster is the daddy of them all, offering classic 10’ longboard style riding in a board that can catch even the smallest waves.
