Surfboard manufacturers appreciated the excellent quality of Basalt Fiber long ago, since 2013 a lot of big-named brands have been producing surfboards based on basalt technologies, constantly improving and developing manufacturing processes.
Fanatic is no exception; in 2013 the brand launched two lines based on LTD technology: Fanatic Hawk и Fanatic Gecko.
“On the basis of the LTD boards, Fanatic features the innovative Basalt Cloth, a material that is not only technically superior to standard cloth but also environment-friendlier in both its manufacturing and recycling processes,” said Fanatic.
The board is a Cork Sandwich construction which combines Basalt Cloth with glass and carbon cloth reinforcement. It provides a perfect weight to stiffness/flex ratio.
Fanatic surfboards, wakeboards, and kiteboards are called iconic for every rider, each board is unique in its kind. In 2004, a leading engineer Sebastian Wenzel introduced CAD / CNC software into the production, so the process became automated, and the quality dramatically increased.
