Fanatic Blitz Carbon 2022
Combining design cues from the Falcon and Strike, the new Blitz is our allround race machine that’s just simply fast - no matter the conditions. For 2022 the Blitz shape is completely redesigned – a team effort between our shaper Kai Nicolas Steimer and our top racers Arthur Arutkin and Christian Andersen. Unfazed by aggressive chop, padding in huge surf, or sprinting for the finish on flat water; the Blitz inspires confidence and excels when the going gets tough. The new semi-recess on the deck allowing a better transfer of power combined with increased grip, balance and positional awareness. The new rail shape results in improved stability and a safe stance in all conditions. The slightly V on top of the nose directs the water better to the right and left and thus avoids unnecessary water inflow into the recess. A new sharper nose on the bottom results in a better flatwater glide and easy paddling against chop and the rounded rails on the bottom bevor and after the standing area gives the board great maneuverability and easy turning. The 14-foot Blitz is offered in two widths, 23.5” and 25.5” with the narrower size being targeted at lighter riders and those pushing for the top. The 25.5” Blitz has its own outline with extra stability due to a longer parallel outline than the 23.5, which works for beginners, heavier riders to open ocean paddlers.
