The Inertia tested a F-One Rocket Wing V2 5’10 along a F-One Phantom Carbon 1480 foil with a pack alu mast 75. The Phantom can also receive a full carbon mast.

Nelson Pinto is a respected Gaucho freesurfer in Brazil, but also an excellent film producer, shaper and more recently kitesurfer. What qualifies Nelson’s lifestyle is freedom and passion… He has made his own way to become the person he is now, and he is not afraid to go off the beaten tracks.
Calm and devoted, Nelson has a degree in advertising and knows how to use his skills and how to express himself through his creations. The surf industry definitely needs more of this kind of personality to add a little bit more to it.
We had this idea to bring them all to a place where we could (legally) fly a drone, get some footage from the water (thanks GoPro) and the shore too (check out the album here) and Treasure Island that day (Saturday Sep 19, 2020) was the spot to go. There is no beach per say, more like a windsurfing spot, but who needs a beach when you wing foil?
To me, this suit redefines the category of a year-round daily driver suit. Your daily driver suit (which for me in Northern California is a 4/3) is going to wear out faster than your winter or summer suit, simply because you’ll be using it the most often, so the cost shouldn’t be exorbitant. But, because you’ll be using it the most often, you don’t want to saddle yourself with a low-quality suit, either. Both of these problems are fixed with Manera’s Seafarer, and in answer to the question printed on the inside lining, I am looking to build a serious long-lasting relationship with this suit and many Manera suits to come.
We have just received our first batch of BANDIT S2 and because of Covid, we have had no opportunities to test it out with the F-One team ahead of its release. So we were pretty excited and mother nature was nice and rewarded us with strong wind and a good first swell of the fall season. That was my first time going back to Waddell in a while and the devastation after the fires that have engulfed so many areas in the state and on the San Mateo and Santa Cruz coastline is pretty shocking. We have had numerous people we know that have lost a good chunk of their properties and for some their house and I could not help but think of how crazy this year has been. Going to the water is always the best way to clear our minds. So here are our first impressions with the S2 and they are GOOD!

The ECLIPSE, a skilful balance between stiffness & flex that brings support where you need it and the freedom to move the way you want.
Thanks to a stiffer center area, the EXO 2.0 perfectly supports the back. However, it allows greater freedom of movement thanks to its different levels of rigidity, especially its flexible outline.
