Fanatic 2014 Flat water race boards

Fanatic flatwater race boards

Fanatic have just released their new flat water specific race boards onto the 2014 SUP race board marketplace, here is what they had to say:

After a very intensive R&D process that went on for well over a year, 4 new shapes will allow our team riders to dominate in all areas of SUP racing. Our successful concept of open water designs, where being easy in all kinds of conditions is the main feature, was the basis for the new boards. The goal was to create a flat water board that would be the fastest in flatwater, but yet be capable of handling slight chop, a situation our riders and everyone else racing is often confronted with. Now, with this new design you can fully focus on your completion as the board just goes by itself.

The new Falcon Flatwater features:
– A slightly curved scoop rocker line from tail to nose makes sure the nose hits the water in the right angle and the tail releases the water cleanly with as little wake as possible
– Narrow, parallel outlines for the best combination of speed, low drag and stability
– Wide tails allow for quick kick turning and add additional stability to the shape
– Cutting bow combined with open ocean design, allowing for neutral paddling and avoiding self-steering
– Flat bottom shape – for stability, quick planing and neutral behavior of the board
– Sharp release edges from center to tail, with a smooth blend to the nose add stability and ensure a quick, clean water release
– Flat V-deck shape in the standing area, for maximum wide stance on the board and quick water drainage
– New lower volume curve in the nose to avoid side wind pushing and reduced nose weight
