Product Description

By modern standards the New Wave feels sleek and at only 235.5cm is actually now the longest board on test! Again, by modern standards the tail and nose are relatively narrow. However, the board is no old-style, high-grip toothpick – it features single concave from tail to track, giving it a slidey, low grip feel. The overriding sensation of the New Wave is its stunning acceleration and slippery feel through the water. Despite an average waveboard rocker and needing average amounts of wind to unstick, it seems to really shoot out of the blocks once up and going and quickly hit an impressive top speed. You can’t be heavy on the back foot and push too hard either upwind or into take-offs, but with such accessible speed on tap it’s a great jumping board. The ride is pretty lively and although not the most settled through chop for lesser ability sailors it is dynamic and exciting, and high speed gybes with good exit speed can be expected. On a wave it has good bite in the carve and feels very redirectable. It doesn’t have the low speed flow of a wider tailed onshore board or the snappiness of the twinsers, but it’s still fully riding capable and loves fast rides, giving controllable, smooth bottom turns and feels surprisingly easy to pivot off the top

The 75 comes with a good quality 22.5cm fin, suitably large to provide sufficient grip for all-round sailing. The straps too are excellent but be warned that Fanatic use very closely mounted strap inserts (14cm) that can end up wedging wider and/or booted feet too tightly. The deck is quite domed and the pads comfortable
