Fanatic Ray 2019 Touring
The Ray delivers the ultimate touring experience. With outstanding stroke efficiency, racing style waterline and exceptional stability it truly is a great all-round cruiser. The 2019 Ray is available in two performance oriented touring designs of 12’6” and 14’0” long, both in the manoeuvrable width of 29.5”.
The Ray’s deck has a simple deck spine for dry feet paddling, front cargo tie down points, a long deck pad, a deep ledge handle and a wider tail than last year. The volume is further forward and slims down the further you go back, the main difference this year is the lower cutting nose and very hard boxy rails, which provide a stable secure platform. The tail has a slight vee and a neat 22cm glass US box fin.
This is the board you should aspire to try if you’ve only paddled inflatables so far; it’s rewarding, sleek and silent to ride – it’s a very smooth board – and there’s plenty of space on the deck for the basics. We tested the Ray this year in the heavier Pure which was a similar weight to other tourers, the lighter LTD, not only looks far nicer but comes in very light at around 2kg less, well worth saving up for if you can find the extra cash. In a nutshell this tough, refined new shape from Fanatic will give you years of sleek cruising experiences ahead.
