Do not miss this UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY to learn from the wave master. We are very fortunate to have Mitu back to coach two weeks of wave riding in Punta San Carlos, a right point break, on west coast of Baja, California.

Bluerush, F-One & Manera in North America today announced a partnership to take Standup Paddleboarding (SUP), Kiteboarding and Foiling to the next level in Northern California.

The Bluerush team will now be competing using F-One & Manera equipment and gear.

When you see people fighting over a board it’s a fairly good sign that it works, and this shape and construction feels efficient enough to tick the boxes of a lightwind freeride cruiser, a performance strapless air stick if you’re stuck in the chop and ultimately a great surf option in small and medium sized waves (a note, we also prone surfed the 5’8” in shoulder high waves and had surprisingly fun results.) The Mitu ESL is available in two sizes, 5’6″ and 5’8″ for 2017.
