Fanatic introduced this exciting parallel rail concept with its super compact length into the windsurfing world in early 2015, after a secret and intense year of R&D. Soon the market followed and jumped on the train, but the success and feedback on the fully developed, finely tuned Stubby showed that this was something people wanted! Everything is easy on the Stubby; speed and early planing, control and slashy turns. Its characteristics open up the potential to learn all of the latest moves, and with a new sensation for almost every style of wave conditions it has an incredibly wide range of use. Try it to believe it, then you’ll realise what all the fuss is about!
STUBBY VS. GRIP
The Stubby comes with a different feel to the Grip. It’s super controlled planing capabilities and upwind abilities are exceptional, which makes the Stubby the top choice for those days where you’re not expecting much. If it’s small and onshore the Stubby will be your joystick to score a top session when others pack up and go home. The super wide tail has a totally different way of turning when compared to the Grip. It’s snappy and skatey, and turns with a more back footed style. The clear guidance of the parallel rails cut through the chop like a knife, opening its horizon to bigger and better waves with your rising level.
