First introduced in 2010, the Atom's unique abilities quickly made it a magical hit with windsurfers around the world and demand continues to grow today for this solo board range. As the only ultra thin board currently on the market, the Atom has a wind range and an appeal to a wide range of freeriders that no other board can match.
In light winds, discover the unique combination of power from a 9m sail channeling into a platform of just 99 litres. The wide body and wide tail gives power and leverage to handle larger sails and deeper fins. The Atom in light winds: incredible efficiency to maximize freeriding performance with bigger sails.
In highwinds, the board's small size of 99 litres keeps the board controlled and balanced. The ultra-slim profile makes for an ultra-low centre of gravity that keeps the Atom under control in heavy, choppy, windy conditions. Fit a smaller fin in, and increase the level of control yet another notch. With a wide tail that leverages of the smaller fin, the rider will control power easily and maintain control over chop easily.
For intermediate riders, the Atom is also the easiest and most stable 99 litre board ever. Progressing into more windy conditions and looking for a stable, comfortable and exciting board with plenty of performance? Look no further than the Atom.
For advanced riders, the Atom has incredible maneuvering abilities, jibing and carving like no other board: with its ultra slim design, it carves on a dime like its other super slim cousins of the snowboard/surfboard/wakeboard variety. As a board to carry larger sails in lightwinds, no other board offers as much fun, excitement and maneuverability. If big volume freeride boards make you feel like you're riding a truck, the Atom's ultra-slim 99 litre design makes you feel like you're driving a sports coupe.
Feel the difference, meet the Atom.

Large dual layer monopad: the Atom's joker is its ability to bring you the strapless freeriding experience.
