Fanatic Viper 80 (2009)

Over to Fanatic: “Short and wide is not the answer! We listened to the experts – the vast network of windsurfing schools – when we were designing this range of beginner / family boards. They have immense experience with all types of beginners and their input directly influenced our Viper range. Long, stretched outlines and a finely-tuned rockerline guarantee a long waterline. This is essential for maximum non-planing performance and paves the way to your first planing experience. The balanced volume distribution makes windsurfing fun and easy – from the very first step on the board. The daggerboard system vastly increases the light wind performance by offering additional stability, and guarantees you stay upwind and come back to the beach where you left from, which is critical for beginners and light wind cruising. Advanced windsurfers can also enjoy the Viper as a light wind freeride board, with plenty of footstrap positions and an optional tuning kit to further boost performance.”

Features: Fully retractable and removable daggerboard, full soft deck, nose handle for carrying and manoeuvring, entry, intermediate and advanced footstrap options, 34cm Powerbox fin, optional tuning kit.

Comment: An absolute bargain, as well as being one of the boards that our gurus praised the most. One of them went as far as to say that the Viper should be the benchmark that all other improver boards are built around! Need we say any more?
