Design, Construction and Features

The Falcon Air models are exclusively built with Fanatic’s premium signature Double Layer Light Technology. A drop stitch core is wrapped in two lightweight layers of Tarpaulin; a triple layer Silicon rail is added around the narrow outline of the board and then the entire board is covered in beautiful graphics with Fanatic’s signature bold stripes and logo.

The overall increased stiffness and reduced weight of the Falcon Air make for one finely tuned premium racing machine. The top deck of the board features a soft diamond grooved traction pad for increased comfort and grip, along with a carrying handle in the center for easier transport.  Towing eyelets and bungee storage give plenty of room for securing your dry gear and attaching safety accessories.

Included Accessories

The entire Fanatic inflatable range features the standard accessory bundle. Each premium inflatable board comes with a high-end backpack for stylish and comfortable travel, with padded shoulder and hip straps and enough storage for your board and accessories plus grooved wheels capable of taking on any terrain. The Fanatic Power Pump HP2 is also included with every inflatable board with a built-in pressure gauge for getting your board to the optimal PSI.

Taking it for a Spin

The Falcon Air is ultra-stiff and provides an effortless glide across any water condition and can be taken with you wherever your next adventure lands you. The narrower body of this racing iSUP allows it to move speedily across the water and perform just like a composite board would without the hassle of transporting such a heavy piece of equipment. The board itself is easy to carry and inflates effortlessly in minutes. Once the fin is snapped into place you’re ready for a long day out on the water. Packing up and leaving is just as easy thanks to carrying handles and a travel backpack.

Likes and Dislikes

Fanatic’s dedication to their craft shines through each and every one of their beautiful boards. The inflatable line is one of the most well put together collections available, from the core of the board  the eye-pleasing graphics Fanatic really is a master of their craft. If we were to offer one criticism it would have to be the lack of included accessories, adding a paddle to the premium package would put Fanatic at the front of the line of iSUPs.
