Fanatic Quad Team Edition 86 liters 2011 :
am really looking forward to when they get here have a 93 quad, 110 skate on order
Just saw and held the new Fanatic Quad 79litre at Wind Surf and Snow. It really looks dam sexy and the gloss coat on bottom looks unreal. At 55.5cm wide and able to carry a 5.8m sail it looks like a great east coast one board solution for a 70kg rider - can't wait to try it and compare it to my twin!
I love the colours! finally they got rid of that drab old grey stuff and have jumped on the colour bandwagon. but they still look unique and awesome! thumbs up Fanatic.
Fanatic Wave / Freestyle 2011 now on line :
The tail on that quad - please explain!
Have they put the fins inthe right spot??
i'd preorder an 86L quad in an instant... only thing stopping me is i really haven't got around to selling my current waveboard.
yet again... another manufacturer that completely overlooks the market for light wind wave boards for heavier riders.
I really thought they would finally wake up and realise that there is definitely a market for that.
couldn't help myself and pre ordered the 86, worth a look at the video on the site to hear the explaination of the design concept.
My two cents worth "opinion" purely on face value.
They seem to have looked back at the colours and designs of the old Bic and other late 80's boards and ruthlessly sprayed colour all over the place.
until these images I was a huge Fanatic fan - based on design, ride and conservative sprays (got a 104 Freewave 08 and 112 skate that I love)
I'm glad they look so ordinary cause there is no way I am parting with a hard earned dollar on these 2011 babies - can't wait to see the reapirers face when asked - can you match the spray - I reckon the 09/10 resale value should hold well
I am sure they probably go well and those that purchase them will be stoked - but the first expression that comes to my mind is fugly
Repairs would be a nightmare but no worse than the wave graphic new wave & freewave of a few years back.
In the flesh the graphics do look fantastic though, the bottom is not all gloss the wavey lines going out from the symbol on the bottom is a matt texture (like textured glass).
Wow, it certainly looks like what's old is new again when it comes to graphic design. It reminds me of my old Tyronsea 330. Mine was pink, blue and white. I found a picture of something similar in the buy / sell area to what I had - I think you get the idea.
I've got a 2010 Fanatic Freewave 95 litre - which has conservative colours which suits me fine. Brilliant board, good to see they didn't mess with the shape!
The bottoms look good, but the decks are pretty retro bad.
I totally agree, I think the bottom looks awesome

I really wish I hadn't seen the release of these boards, now im Jonesing for two new boards: A Twinny 79 and Skate 100. From what I understand, there have not been any wild changes (shape wise that is) from 2010 with these boards in particular.
the 1980's Kmart surfware brand is back in disguise
when I was 12yo i had a pair of boardies with a design that looked just like that
awwwwyeah! picking up my two new toys tonight! will also be checking out the new quad too while im at it
Fanatic Falcon 111 2011 :
these boards were meant for me, they even have my name on them (Carbon T. Stringer) thats the uinderside of the 111 with the 134 off to the side... you can't really see the tail vee or the double concave further up the deck but they are there... will take some better shots later.. cant wait to give it a fang at leighton on sunday
