Whatever the terrain, the Antic can handle it with its incredibly durable construction. A high performance hybrid wakestyle board designed for riding with boots that enhances your performance when hitting kickers and sliders behind a kite or a cable. Let the results speak for themselves.

Designers Notes on the Naish Antic with Product Designer, Lars Moltrup

When did development first start on the Antic?
Development started when the dub was being developed in the beginning of 2012.

What inspired the design/concept behind the Antic?
At Naish we are always aiming at being on the forefront of innovation. We started observing how urban kite communities have embraced wakeboarding at cable parks over the past few years and found that riders are getting more and more into wakestyle kiting and spending the windless days at the cable park. So we discovered a demand for a hybrid board in our range that embraced both wakestyle riding and wakeboarding at the cable park with sliders and kickers.

What features separate this board from the rest in the lineup?
The Antic has the same basic bottom and deck shaping as the dub, although the board behaves very differently due to the difference in flex, rocker and outline. The construction of the Antic is very unique compared to the rest of the range due to the amount of carbon fiber used in the construction; combining the 2 full length top and bottom carbon strips, and the radiated carbon V. The Antic is a very responsive board that provides a stable ride, unprecedented pop and direct feedback from rider inputs. The heavy duty wood core has been beefed up to increase strength in order to withstand the great force applied when landing powered wakestyle tricks. The grind base bottom sheet is also extremely durable and built to last even when riding up on the beach or hitting sliders.

How will wakestyle riders benefit from the construction of the Antic? What will they feel?
This board has been through an incredible amount of test hours; all done by our team riders around the world through kiting and riding in cable parks. The Antic is built very tough so when you ride with boots, you get a very direct power transfer and a huge pop due to the stiffness coming from the heavy duty pop wood core and the carbon construction.

Was the end result what you expected?
When a board is being designed, the first thing we do is outline overall design objectives. These objectives decide how we want the board to behave. So the finished product is what we first set out to make, and in this case, we met our objectives through hours of testing and modifications.
