This is the LW version of F-One’s popular Next twin tip with an all new pad/strap system and fresh graphics for 2016. The Next LW is a biaxial glass and wood construction deck with F-One’s unique reverse profile surf rail and rounded template. The Next LW comes in two sizes; we tested the larger. It takes the upside of a skim board and combines these traits with an easy-to-use kiteboard that works well in the lightest of conditions.
Foiling is more than a discipline, it’s a new world !
F-One vision is now clear, Foiling is not just a sub category of kiteboarding, or paddleboarding or even windsurfing, it’s emerging as a new watersport entirely, the same way we have surfing, kitesurfing, paddleboarding (SUP) or windsurfing, now we can add Foiling in the mix.
To that effect, F-One is launching a dedicated website for foiling: f-onefoil.com.
2017 will see the release of the tenth edition of the BANDIT. Our sport has evolved quite a lot since the launch of the first Bandit 10 years ago, yes 10 years !! To celebrate this milestone, F-One has decided to develop “satellite” kites around the BANDIT, which will remain at the core of our range.
The number of disciplines within our sport is now quite amazing and hydro foiling has opened a wide array of new possibilities. The swift development of foils requires the development of new kites to optimize the ride. This is the main reason why F-One developed a foil kite last year: the DIABLO. This kite was designed to meet the demands of the foil racers or riders who wanted high performance racing kite This year we have used all the know-how of our R&D department to offer a kite designed specifically for foiling and light wind riding: the BREEZE
For the rest of JULY and early AUGUST F-One & Manera will be visiting the NORTH WEST region ! Stopping at all the top kiteboarding locations along the way, we are very excited to bring the entire collection to a spot near you! Look for the White Dodge F-One van at your beach and come say hello.

Lots of passionate kiteboarders from around the globe came together for a great cause this past weekend in beautiful Hood River, Oregon on the banks of the mighty Columbia River to celebrate the 10th Anniversary Kiteboard 4 Cancer event and fundraiser. F-One & Manera were a proud supporting sponsor and we had the opportunity to participate as a team in this special event. It was a lot of fun! We wanted to thank everyone who made KB4C 2016 possible, especially Tonia Farman and her team!
