World’s leading surfboard manufacturers have efficiently introduced Basalt Fiber in their production

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.

The main activity of Global Basalt Engineering LLC is creation of effective productions on release of continuous basalt fiber (СBF) with technologies of the last generation and composites on the basis of СBF (Basalt Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Composites as BFRP).

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.
