Windsurf (UK) March 2011 – Fanatic Falcon 111 test

The Fanatic Falcon 111 is very quick to accelerate and the increased volume in the tail enables you to get back into the straps early. The Falcon feels like a freeride board in terms of comfort and ease of use, delivering a lot of plug & play potential for such a hardcore race board…

…but it’s in the cornering and the acceleration coming out of the tums that the Fanatic Falcon will pull you ahead of the pack.

Windsurfing (US) June 2011 – Fanatic Falcon 111 test

Instant acceleration once on the plane. Big speed without big scares. Favored top-speed over instant planing. Best siutes light to moderate weight slalom blasters.

If you are looking for a more durable and forgiving board, have look at Fanatics Freerace board Fanatic Ray 2011 or the more Freeride oriented Fanatic Hawk 2011.
