2014 FANATIC Shark / Shark LTD - HIGH RESISTANCE SKIN (HRS)
From smooth, graceful cruising to lightning speed super-tight turns. Forgiving to intermediates, the Sharks lack no bite in hard-carving or top-end control. A CAD-proven scoop rocker, comfy domed decks and compact outline offer a sweet sensation that’s both easy to use and push to the limits. 5 durable shapes supply awesome value in High Resistance Skin (HRS) with Powerbox fins, and the key 135 and 150 LTD models are also available bio-friendly Carbon/Kevlar Basalt Sandwich light construction.
- Compact outline and efficient volume flow and easy-to-use feel
- 80° pintail for drag reduction, top-end control and jibing
- Full rails in the front for smoother, forgiving ride and thinner rails in the tail for tight jibing and grip
- Double concave for cutting through the chop with max power and control
- Deluxe deck doming for maximum foot-steering pleasure
Fanatic’s CAD shaper Sebastian Wenzel
“With short, wide outlines and an 80Deg pintail I’ve given the Sharks a perfect blend of low-resistance and top-end control that’s easy to carve. The rails in the nose are fuller and forgiving, but thinner and sharper in the tail to bite in turns and cut through the water effortlessly once at top speed.”

Biax and Carbon Kevlar/Basalt Sandwich Light Technology
Top quality and high-tech specification Biax Carbon has a perfect weight to stiffness ratio as a result of its very fine weave, plus has fantastic dynamic flex. In combination with PVC Sandwich Technology and Glass reinforcements, it provides a perfect stiffness / flex / weight ratio on the Falcon Slalom line.
We used the same basic construction for our Freeride Limited Edition boards, except that on the deck we have a full Carbon Kevlar layup which has a better shock absorbing character than pure carbon, for more comfort, whilst offering a very stiff and light performance, which is needed for these high performance Freeride/Freerace boards (Shark LTD / Hawk LTD / Ray LTD). On the bases of the LTD boards we have the new innovative Basalt cloth, a cloth which is not only technically superior to many other standard cloths, but also environment friendlier in both the creation and re-cycling thereof. All of these models are produced with the light finish sanded look, for extra weight
savings, whilst the new polished and airbrushed rails and bases are the ultimate optic for 2012!
High Resistance Skin
High resistance composite technology – an optimum weight and durable construction for every-day use. A thick, durable outer skin gives the board hull a high strength, ding and impact resistance. Strategic use of glass reinforcements ensures an adequate stiffness. Used on the standard Shark, as well as on the Viper/Ripper ranges in combination with a user friendly EVA deck.
