Borås, Sweden, 18th of August 2010

Windsurfing brand Fanatic recently released their boards for 2011 and amongst them is the FreeWave TeXtreme board built with the market leading Spread Tow Fabrics TeXtreme®.

Spread Tow Fabrics are known for its ability to reduce weight with maintained or improved mechanical performance, thus TeXtreme® being the leading brand in the category, the choice of material comes naturally when wanting to build an ultra light but still stiff application.

The FreeWave TeXtreme board is an ultra light model and is one of the most innovative constructions Fanatic has ever produced. On their Website, Fanatic describes the new board:

- High tech materials and top of the line engineering have led to arguably the lightest and stiffest FreeWave board on the market. Coupled with a stunning optic, this is the ultimate toy for every day on the water, waves or flat water!

TeXtreme® carbon fabric is used in many applications with high demands on performance, such as Formula 1, Ice hockey sticks, racing, and action sports.
