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, […]
Thanks to Dan Corbett and and his mighty crew of the SCKA and Friends for laying out a great weekend of demoing on the beach . Dinner on Saturday night , provided by Ruth Corbett was outstanding – simply delicious ! Conditions varied for the two days, and overall provided for prime hydro foiling conditions .
Join us this coming week end May 16/17 in the Los Angeles area, in Long Beach, at the BELMONT SHORE KITE EXPO to demo all F-One gear, new 17m Bandit + other sizes, Mitu and Signature Surfs, Fish, Trax, Acid & Spicy Twin Tips; and the new F-One foil (only for foilers, no beginners please) !
Joey has been racing in San Francisco for years, won last season San Francisco Thursday Night Racing Series and recently finished 5th at the Gold Cup in La Ventana, an event where none of the world top racers were missing. He started the 2015 racing season in San Francisco by winning the first night with 2 bullets and one second place ahead of Johnny Heineken on the new F-One foil kites. He is a natural fit for the new F-One & Manera USA Racing team and with him as the leader of this new burgeoning team, not only we do have a top competitor, but we also have a great ambassador for foiling in general, and he will be able to answer all the technical questions you might have with regards to the F-One foiling gear, whether it’s the hydrofoil or the foil kites. We wish Joey a great season !
F-One Owner & CEO Raphael Salles explains why F-One is going all in with the Foil program and the origin and designing choice behind the new foil kite
Boardsports California (formerly known as Boardsports School) has been a F-One dealer since 2007; they were one of the very first Kiteboarding shop & school to carry F-One in the States, even before the avent of the Bandit 1; their first board was a F-One Legend (a hybrid twin-tip and surf) and their first kite was a Tribal II!. We have a great relationship with Rebecca & Jane and they have been the go to kiteboarding school in the Bay Area for a long time. Their Alameda Crown Beach location in the East Bay is arguably the best spot to learn how to kiteboard, and they have also another retail shop on the other side of the Bay, on the beach of Coyote Point, with access to jet skis to go to the channel where the chance of getting enough wind is close to 100% during the Spring and Summer. With their 2 locations, they can service Peninsula and East bay kiters all at once.
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.
