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?
You can ride without but you’ll always feel better with them! Check out the new Manera 2021 ACCESSORIES collection, jacket, boots, gloves, hoods, poncho, etc.
The ECLIPSE, a skilful balance between stiffness & flex that brings support where you need it and the freedom to move the way you want.

As a pro-windsurfer in his native France, Maxime Lhuillier moved to Cancun 8 years ago to be the National coach for Mexico. He opened up Shaka Vibes, his windsurfing school and has expanded his activity to paddleboarding and kiteboarding, and now wing foiling too.
New 2021 Manera Neoprene collection is out! Make the most of the upcoming winter with high quality, 3D designed wetsuits.
We met Chris & Chris Jr. MacDonald, dad & son early in the spring during the lockdown at Crissy Beach in San Francisco. The parkings were closed but not the beach, which was just a great way for all kiters, windsurfers and wingers to get their daily dose of happy water time, and this is the time of the year where it blows hard every day. Young Chris progression in a few months has been quite phenomenal and we are happy to report he has join our National team program.
We believe it is frustrating to be cold when the weather is nice & warm. This technical wetshirt features an outside layer that prevents the wind-chill effect; and an nside honeycomb plush that keeps you warm without using a bulky neoprene top or a spring suit.
