That was just a matter of time, F-One Team rider Maxime Chabloz just won his first ever World Tour event in Brazil, well deserved Maxime! Not easy to run a kite event during a pandemic but the GKA pullet it off. Liam Whaley suffered an injury and couldn’t finish, we wish him a super fast recovery and hope to see him soon on the tour.
F-One team rider Titouan Galea just won the very first GWA wing foil event in Fortaleza, Brazil. Next up will be the Tarifa Wing Pro at the end of the year. Bravo Titou! and also to Maxime Chabloz for landing the very first perfect backflip in a competition. We are fortunate to have those 2 in the F-One team
100% owned and run by the same French family since its inception, Manera products are made to brave the worst conditions and abuse. With major changes to the wetsuit line, tweaks to its harness offerings and unique new booties specifically designed for kiters, Manera’s Julien Salles is super excited to share their 2021 collection.
2020, a year like no others.
A year where life as we have known it doesn’t exist anymore.
Luckily we are passionate about the ocean.
This means that even when we are stuck at home not being able to ride, we always have something to look forward to.
The new MANERA boots come in two models, the MAGMA 5mm and the X10D 3mm. Both are designed in 3D for a perfect fit and with no velcro, which is one of our favorite feature (no more flapping and sticking to your wetsuit when in a bag or a bucket). They are very easy to put on and off and dry very quickly. The grip is also top notch, overall great boots.
This is the perfect accessory to change before and after riding, plus it will get you warm and dry in a minute. Poncho is a widely used product, but we’ve been looking for a warmer, softer, cleaner and greener product.
This new version features a higher collar that protects your neck from the wind, a larger bottom cut to improve freedom of movement and a hood tightening system.
The F-One & Manera demo tour in Florida will kick off tomorrow October 31 in Jacksonville, at the Huguenot Park. And the forecast looks great!
Come to try out all the new 2021 collection of kites, surfs, twin tips, foils and wing
Those are the little things than can make (our break) your foil session. So it should be a no brainer. Most foilboards are using US Twin Tracks and there is nothing that really prevents the T-Nuts for slipping out of the tracks when not attached to your foil, meaning it’s quite easy to lose them and drive you crazy if you have no spare.
