40 years with a Blast! We celebrate 40 years of Fanatic with the return of some of our iconic graphics on special editions of our most successful shapes - like the Ultra Blast Rat Edition.
"The parallel rails allow the water to flow free of turbulences allowing great acceleration, top speed and easy gybing characteristics.
Just like its Mamba Wave siblings, the narrower width compared to equivalent freeride boards gives the Blast an increased level of efficiency. The wider nose and pulled in tail offer blistering acceleration, but also a stable platform to drive from, giving you tons of speed and control over chop. Push as gentle or as hard as you want in the corners, the Blast responds immediately keeping the speed right through the gybe, with ease.
Performance has never been so easy!"
Choose the Gecko over the Blast for:
The Gecko is easier and more stable to sail, particularly when off the plane. It planes earlier and with less technique than the Blast and will keep planing for longer through lulls. The Gecko is the easiest board in the Fanatic range to achieve planing carve gybes on and rides more freely than the slightly faster Blast.
Choose the Gecko over the Viper for:
The Gecko offers a lighter board weight and more responsive planing performance. The Viper will perform better off the plane, whilst the Gecko would be the better choice once progressing to carve gybes and waterstarting.
Choose the Blast over the Jag for:
The Blast requires less technique to reach its maximum potential and is designed to perform equally well with both rotational and cambered sails. The Blast is easier and less physical to sail than the Jag, with a very controlled, locked in ride and is more forgiving in the gybes.
Wide tail and nose
The wide tail and nose make the Blast a very stable platform when off the plane
At speed the ride is locked in, very stable and comfortable
Can be gybed aggressively in experienced hands thanks to the thin rails, but also very easily for less experienced riders due to the wide tail
Amazing acceleration from the wide tail and low drag characteristics of the parallel rails
Equally comfortable with rotational or camber induced rigs
Tuttle Box for strength and approved for foil use in all sizes
Grippy and shock absorbing dual density diamond grooving footpads
Comfortable and easy to adjust Fanatic footstraps
1 HRS finish and weight saving graphics
2 Glass HRS layer
3 Heel Glass patch
4 Wood sandwich from tail to center
5 Glass reinforcement layer

High Resistance composite technology is a durable construction for everyday use. A thick, durable outer skin gives the hull maximum strength, as well as making it ding and impact resistant. Strategic use of fibre reinforcements ensure adequate stiffness. In combination with the user-friendly EVA deck, HRS can be seen on the standard Gecko, as well as the Viper / Ripper ranges.
