Fanatic Grip XS - 2022
The Grip xs is the ultimate grom shredder. Fanatic really do take the youth scene seriously and this is reflected in the Grip xs, I think any rider would be stoked to ride this! The Grip comes as a quad set up but can also be used as a twin which gives it an ever loser feeling.
The Grip XS is our dedicated performance wave board for the future stars of our sport. Designed specifically for lightweight riders, every detail is built in proportion so that smaller rippers can unleash their potential without limitation.
Based on our PWA World Title winning Grip TE, the XS is shorter and narrower with thinned out tail and rails that – when paired with increased rocker and quad fin set-up – offer the ultimate in manoeuvrability and control in all wave conditions. The footstrap position and stance are ideal for smaller riders and smaller sails; it is truly the best board out there for groms and lightweights.
Bottom Shape: High top speed and excellent comfort in chop, thanks to the double concave / V bottom shape
Flat deck: Flat deck, great for stability in lighter winds
Trim / Stance: Trim and Stance adjusted for smaller riders and kids
Slot Box: Lightweight and easy to adjust slot-box fin system allows further tuning for conditions and preference. Moving the fins back noticeably increases the speed and drive of the board, whilst moving them forward gives a much looser, more ›surfy‹ feel

Thinned out: Thinned out tail and rail shape to ensure maximum turning and control
FOOTSTRAP OPTIONS: New double footstrap inserts for maximum load and adjustable stance settings for tighter or personal preference
