TRIWAVE

Meet the brand new TriWave. Completely redesigned for 2014, each of the six sizes features a tuned-up shape that begins with an overall wider and more compact outline. You need planing power? We’ve got it with a decreased tail rocker and a V bottom shape. Combined with the flatter deck, we’ve created a more stable stance, while still improving the turning capabilities thanks to the shorter shape and a snappy tail outline. Super easy and user-friendly. This is the board for all-around Wave conditions.

The best part? Ride your TriWave as a Thruster and enjoy the full performance of a radical Waveboard, or turn it into a Single Fin, to give you maximum planing power and drive down the line. Versatility is the name of the game with the TriWave. Whatever the conditions, whatever your style – the TriWave will deliver pure fun.

Key Features
- 6 new shapes with a new outline, featuring slightly wider fishtails for better low-end performance and snappy turns
- V bottom shape with light, tuned double concaves for smooth flow, compensating for the wider tail and helping accelerate out of turns
- Proven rocker line with slightly less tail rocker – the perfect combination of performance and surfing capability
- Wider center with flatter deck for early planing and easy balance and stance
- Full and soft rails up the nose for balance and control – these rails never catch - sharp and crisp rails on the tail for projection and grip
- Side fins with slight tow for perfect water flow, maximizing grip and projection
- SlotBox sidefins with US Center Box offer maximum tuning abilities
- TriWaves perfectly fill the gap between FreeWaves and Quads

Fanatic Wave R&D Manager Klaas Voget about the new TriWave: “The 2014 TriWave is a completely new world in terms of planing power, turning abilities and its ease of use. Its element is pretty much any spot with a breaking wave. I’m looking forward to get these boards in my quiver for the 2014 Wave tour. They are so easy and so fun!”

TECHNOLOGY

IC/LF - INNEGRA CARBON LIGHT TECHNOLOGY (DOUBLE AND SINGLE)

Innegra Carbon will be used again on the 2014 Wave- and TE Freestyleboards. After seeing it work in our boards over the last year, we’re confident in saying that this material is lighter and more impact resistant than the Carbon Kevlar that it has now replaced on all TE boards. Combined with a double PVC/Wood Sandwich and Wood/Carbon heel reinforcements, it guarantees the most efficient construction in terms of weight and maximum impact resistance. The Waveboards benefit from Innegra Carbon sandwich layups. The Skate 85 and 93 Team Editions have a Single Sandwich deck of Innegra Carbon and a Carbon T-Stringer Glass bottom, the Skate TE 101 and 111 come with a Single Sandwich deck of Innegra Carbon and a full Carbon bottom. Each Team Edition model is produced with the Light Finish look, were the primary board color gets mixed into the laminating resin, for extra weight reduction.
