We are stoked to have Mitu back for his second Wave Camp down in Punta San Carlos. June 20-27 2015. Do not miss this UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY. Last year was a total blast and we expect the same this year. Mitu is a busy professional wave rider, juggling dates between the Wave World tour (he was in Dakhla, […]
There aren’t a lot of dedicated SUP shop in Northern California and Bluerush is a standout, especially in the Bay Area. We are proud that they have decided to carry F-One and Manera in their new shop in Sausalito. They cater to the flat waters of the Bay (perfect for racing and touring) but also to the wave riding spots such as Bolinas or Dillon Beach in the Northern Coast. They just received a fresh batch of the all around Manawa but also the surf oriented Madeiro and Anakao boards. They will also get soon enough the race boards. Do not hesitate to contact them if you want to demo or get a F-One board and/or Manera accessories.
Accessible and really progressive, the F-ONE KITEFOIL is the new weapon of choice to not only ride, but truly fly over the water. Foiling is more than a new discipline; it’s a whole new world. The F-ONE kitefoil has been developed with the most experienced foil riders and every element of the foil has been designed to deliver the best imaginable experience out on the water whether you about to start or if you already master the magic of foiling.
“The biggest news for this hugely popular board this year is the new construction. Gone is the double bamboo sandwich, and in is a new technique that F-One are calling the HD Foam Flex Composite. The new construction is really tough and provides a very smooth ride in the choppiest of waters and there is plenty of control at high speed.” – Rou Chater, Iksurf magazine

Hosted every year by The Kiteboarder, this PISMO Kitexpo is held every year and is a fund raiser for our friend Kinsley ThomasWong, a kiteboarder who was gravely injured in 2010. This year, a solid 20+mph wind was showing up at about 12 every single day and a lot of kiteboarders from all over the country had the chance to try out tons of gear from the leading brands. At the F-One booth, the day started at 8am with the SUP demo and finished late with either campground parties or fund raising dinner for Kinsley. We were crazy busy and the gear rarely touched the sand ! everybody was enjoying the new Bandit kite, the Mitu and Signature surfboards + Fish, the entire Twin Tip lineup (Trax, Acid, Unik), the MANERA EXO Harnesses. Let’s not forget the SUP boards we did tons of SUP in the morning, we had the wave series (madeiro 8’3-8’5-8’8) and also Anakao 9’1 (I must say that i had a GREAT time on this new Anakao 9’1, right before the crowd started to show up, it’s a new shape for 2015 and it’s an awesome board), plus some Manawa baords as well. Thank you to the F-One crew for helping out Bruce – Christian – Tyler – Jesse – Vincent – Frank
