Fanatic Fly Air 10 4 Construction

Inspired by the Fly range, it responds to the storage and transport problems associated with rigid paddles thanks to its ingenious construction.

The Fly Air model’s Stringer Technology (STR) uses the best Drop Stitch materials available on the market and a state-of-the-art manufacturing process that offers an exceptional value for money. It is manufactured by the most renowned manufacturer in the world.
The STR technology is characterized by a lightweight single-layer construction with the addition of a PVC stringer that allows a weight reduction of 20 to 25% and a considerable gain in stiffness on the central part of the board.

Its pressure-stiffness ratio allows it to be stable at all times and makes it an ideal all-round board for beginners to intermediate riders. The two additional side fins provide the grip required in small waves. The board includes high-end tow rings and a comfortable carrying handle.
