In addition to the Severne Fox, which appears to be eagerly awaited by many, it would appear the Nuevo remains the same for 2017, unless I am mistaken. Severne's website refers to the Nuevo as being an 2017 line:

Are any other boards expected from Severne for 2017 ?

Thank you Uweh.

This looks similar to the Dan Thomson surfboards and many of the stubbies etc around from other brands.

Any reviews and indications of pricing, weights and constructions ?

I just went into Zu board sports. They have the the 2017 catalogue. Loads more boards. Much more kit than the website.

It would appear that the Nano made an appearance at the AWT, judging by the video the shot posted by Uweh was from the 2016 AWT Pacasmayo Classic.

Presumably it wasn't the winning board as I believe Forrest Ladkin won on a more classic Fanatic Quad although he did use Severne Sails. The sailor always being more important than the board and sail and perhaps the conditions favour the more classic style shape which it appears he used.

There may be some lessons here as to what range of use is for the Nano as opposed to the Nuevo which also appears to be being retained as the classic board for Severne for 2017.

These are my speculative inferences and I don't have any inside knowledge, ownership nor any experience in Fanatic or Severne gear. Comments from anyone who has more information would be appreciated.

Yeah guys was fortunate to take a test version of a bigger volume Nano to Peru for the AWT event recently,
it is 99ltrs 219 x 57cm.

The board planed earlier than most and is fast, as a quad it had plenty of drive off the bottom and carried speed through
to top turn, where you could either carve off the top or push harder to a controlled slide.

I tried the tri fin setup as well and found it all round looser, but preferred the quads drive on the endless down the line lefts of Pacasmayo.

The short length and narrow width was great in the air and looped with ease.

Expect to see an 83ltr & 93ltr version soon and the 99ltr to follow.

What do you think the prices and constructions will be ?

Would you have preferred a 100 litre Nuevo to the Nano at the Pacsamayo comp ?

I have been using the 83 Nano over the past month and a half in Tenerife: cross on with sails from 3.6 to 4.8. Fin setup was as the thruster option.
This board is fantastic at making less then perfect waves extremely fun.
The board is super easy to keep speed trough the bottom turn, either through long drawn out (clew first switch stance type) bottom turns or on softer less powerful waves.
The top turn though is where this board got me hooked. You can throw the board off the top as hard as you like and always be able to bring it back with ease.
Having a wider nose too makes doing takas and even normal freestyle very easy compared to most other wave board I have used.

Awesome pics FS, great to hear the Nano works in cross on as well, as that's what we mainly get at home in QLD.

Yeah totally agree the top turn is where this board excels on the wave the control is amazing you can jam it late under the lip and it never catches or push harder
to slide the tail and its speed is great for airs.

aribenasher I was going to take a Nuevo 101ltr to Peru which would have still worked great, but am pretty happy went the Nano in the end the multiple
fin option allowed us to dial it in to suit pacasmayo condition, and felt the quad was best option for me.

There is some similarity on the wave between the Nano and Nuevo, and took little time to get used to it.

I've seen Mr Severne out recently at a couple of different local spots, Ben was getting some very nice top turns on his Nano. He looked very warm in that super duper 5/3 Severne wetsuit. The board appears to carry some good speed along the wave face.

Seen him out testing too.

Terrible time he must be having, all that new gear that needs testing.

Hi Uweh

the specs for the Nano are
78ltr 214cm / 55cm
83ltr 215cm / 56cm
93ltr 217cm / 58cm
103ltr 219cm / 59cm

They are supplied as Thruster set ups but can be used as quads. Started as a board for onshore days or smaller waves and better speed for jumping, they have been proving to be good fun in half mast full on waves also up north.

check with your dealer for pricing and availability around November.

cheers

Nano looks and sounds great!

www.starboarditaly.com/2016/09/severne-windsurf-2017-nano.html




NANO ALL-ROUND WAVE

Inspired by Tomo’s new-school surfboards, the Nano is a fresh wavesailing sensation.
Its parallel rails mean the width is narrower than on a traditional board, which makes it feel like
you’re sailing a smaller board. The efficiency of the parallel rails means you’re up and planing as if
you were riding a bigger board.

Initially conceived as a small wave, onshore biased design, the Nano proved to be so much more:

INCREDIBLY VERSATILE
Fast enough for onshore, stable enough for high speed, down-the-line wall rides. And then with the
option of Thruster drive and power or Quad manoeuvrability.

INSTANT ACCELERATION
An efficient rocker with low-drag entry gets the Nano up and moving with the slightest gust.

FUNCTIONAL VOLUME
Volume distribution centres the volume where you need it, not up on the nose or right at the tail.
This makes the Nano really efficient for its size. Small and efficient.

NANO DIMENSIONS
Small. It’s short length and narrow width makes the Nano extremely compact. Sure, it fits in
the car easier, but the real benefit is a smaller rotational space; fits into hollow sections of small
waves, or quick aerial rotations.

PROGRESSIVE RAILS
Blending from thin, refined rails at the tail and through the stance, the rails get progressively fuller
towards the nose. This automatically sets the trim when turning – the front rides safe and high,
while the tail bites and drives through the turn.
