I can no longer afford, the across Atlantic paper.
Any insight on the 115 test would be most grateful

2019 115 LITRE FREERIDE BLASTING BOARDS
They’re fast but friendly; the class of 2019’s 115 litre freeride blasters are tested by the team in UK waters. The lineup is as follows:
Fanatic Blast ltd 115,
Goya Bolt pro 115,
JP Superride pro 116,
Severne Fox 120,
Simmer Monster 116,
Starboard Futura carbon 107,
Tabou Rocket Plus ltd 113.


I would like to have seen Fanatic's Ray instead of the Blast as they have tested the Blast before and its not changed since. At least there are 3 new boards I dont think they have tested before in the lineup.
Its a bit of a mix of boards between free ride and free race. I think all except Severne have a free ride & free race in their lineup.


The German mag Surf tested the 115l free ride & free race in 2017, 15 boards! https://www.delius-klasing.de/detail/in ... icle/29704

Thanks I was hoping they leaned more towards the FSW category.

I’ll save you the trouble of reading a 115 litre FSW board test..

Buy a Fanatic Freewave Stubby 115 , it’s the mutts nuts. Or a Severne Dyno.

( get some decent fins for the Fanatic though...)

I tried the freewave stubby and really liked it but others have found it more difficult to tease onto the plane in marginal conditions compared to the normal freewave of the same volume.
Having said that Fanatic have dropped the normal freewave range now so they must be confident.

I’ve recently bought a 105 Fanatic Freewave Stubby. Standard construction so only came with a single fin. Would be interested to know what fins you are using Wully? I am currently running K4 12 Stubby fronts and either a K4 3SW 20 or 22. Was considering ordering a set of the MFC tri fins that come with the higher spec boards to compare but at £200 are they worth it?

I’ve got K4 12 Stubbys (I think, need to double check) and an old Mistral 25 G10 which works just fine for now. I’d like a slightly smaller rear K4 fin to replace the Mistral G10.

(I won’t spend a load of money on fins now, one my Stbd Quad I had stock fins , Maui Ultra fins and K4’s and much preferred the K4s. They work well for normal humans an are realistically priced.j

I’m on the 115, weigh 90 kg and don’t understand the difficult to ease onto the plane comment unless it’s in some way better than its smaller cousins?

Don’t bother with MFCs... as nice as they look, they’re far less durable, far more expensive and not really an increase in performance from K4. I used to think K4 were cheap plastic shite, but they feel really nice on a board, and if they’re good enough for Thomas Traversa to charge triple mast high waves, and win World Cups, they’re good enough for any of us!

Plus, when you run them over rocks (which I’ve never, ever done... or not!) they don’t splinter as easily as the likes of Drake, MUF and other G10 type fins.

In a word 'No' ... Like Ruaraidh said unless you are a windsurfing god you really wont feel the difference.

Except in your wallet.

Since this is morning to a fin recommendation.
I rate
K4
CNC
Black Project Fins
Maui Ultra Fins
Tarifa Fin Co

Makani are ok.

I do have some fins in certain brands and type, like race, weed, that in that niche are good to better.

I should explain . I’m not a Windsurf God, that would be Robby Naish. I’m a Prince however. Lol
