F-One has a long history as a company focused on simple and clean product lines with excellent feel and performance. The Bandit has been the milestone of the F-One product family and has always been designed with the intention of putting it in the center of freeride category, maximizing its balance between multiple disciplines and attempting to create one of the largest spectrums of use with a single kite. Straddling the needs of surfing, generalist freeride and big air/mega looping freeride with one quiver of kites works for most people, but for other more niche focused kiteboarders the ‘one kite does it all’ approach forces implicit compromises between performance values.
Stable and easy to handle, the SHADOW is designed to surf any kinds of waves and conditions. It benefits from a very well balanced and really intuitive shape. This board is able to carve short turns as well as long and fast curves effortlessly. Surfing becomes such a pleasure when you can focus on the waves and not on how to get your board moving. Sizes: 5’4 & 5’6
Available in 5 sizes 5’2, 5’4, 5’6, 5’8 & 5’10 and 3 x constructions (Pro Carbon, Pro Flex & Pro Bamboo). Different graphics per construction, and carbon models are colored by size. The Pro Bamboo is also available in a Foil Convertible version with twin tracks in sizes 5’6, 5’8 & 5’10
Listen to Billy’s podcast with Erik Antonson’s The Progression Project. Erik is hosting this popular podcast that is currently focusing on foiling and has invited select people who are part of the foil industry and pushing the limits of what foiling is. Billy recorded this 5 days ago and is part of Episode 10. Billy is an accomplished foiler, whether on a surf, with a kite, and very recently with a wing. There are a lot of things to talk about when it comes to foiling gear, and F-One has one of the most complete foil collection anybody can imagine. It’s not always easy to figure out which foil, or which board volume you should get so hopefully this podcast will help you out!
