Freeride is one of the most popular windsurfing disciplines. A dedicated freerider needs fast and reliable board to power his drives. The Hawk is Fanatic’s premier freeride board and offers a perfect blend of speed, power, control and stability. The Hawk has a special shape which borrows features from the slalom and freestyle board models. It feels very dynamic and has exceptional low down grunt. It reaches an impressive speed and performs fast and accurate carves without hassle. The board is quite powerful, so it is perfectly suited for advanced riders who perform technical maneuvers.

The narrower profile improves speed as well as high wind maneuverability. The thinner profile assures accurate carves and better feedback at high speeds. The 75 degree pintail reduces drag and provides improved turning and jibing performance. Fanatic Hawk features a power V bottom combined with a double concave nose section. This way it generates a fluid drive in chop and assures increased early planning performance as well as top control. The rider can perform the most amazing tricks without effort. The board also accelerates quickly and heads upwind like a rocket. It is the perfect machine for high speed cruises and spectacular freeride maneuvers. 

The Fanatic Hawk is available in standard and Ltd editions. The standard version is designed using a Wood Sandwich structure plus additional glass and wood reinforcements, while the Ltd version is crafted using an eco friendly Aramid Carbon Sandwich structure. The Hawk Ltd is lighter and offers high end performance for demanding riders, while the standard version has a lower retail price and offers a perfect strength to weight ratio.
