At MANERA, we have decided not to focus our marketing on the “Eco-friendly” aspect, because our strength lies in the performance of our products. Every company must strive to offer less harmful products; this must become the norm. We have therefore chosen to explain, with full transparency, the actions we are implementing for the environment on this page.
Liam has been training like a possessed man for the KOTA (the annual big air event taking place in Cape Town, South Africa) with the new BULLIT kite, specifically designed for this kind of wind and style. Wind window period is now open is from Feb 1 to Feb 16.
He is world bodysurfing champ and the standard he has achieved in the sport needs no further proof. Fred David makes the most of his twofold ability as an athlete and a lifeguard by being Justine Dupont’s “best partner in crime”.
MANERA is proud to welcome Justine DUPONT to the MANERA Surf Team: Justine is an awesome surfer and human being in general, her philosophy and commitment really stick to MANERA values and we are super stoked to have such a character as our women athlete
Today Manera has announced its first ever surf athlete: Brendon Gibbens. We couldn’t be happier to have Brendon as our first ever surf athlete, he is a great person in and out of the water and his talent deserves to be recognized.
Life is made to be lived to the fullest.
We create things that make riders ultimately happy and fulfill their riding needs.
This past year, F-ONE has made several big changes: A brand new visual identity, two Bandits after 13 years of having just one, a completely new sport: Wing surfing; and a huge collection of all the gear everyone needs to spend as much time on the water as possible.
Life is short, and stepping out of your comfort zone only brings amazing things.
This is what we wish you for the coming year.
May 2020 be your year of trying out new things.
The Awata Adventure Team recently completed a road trip around Colombia for one month, taking their school and students to different kiteboarding spots. It was an amazing experience. They also did some community work with kids in the Guajira department.
A French family-business that has been involved in kiteboarding since the beginning, Manera develops kiteboarding gear for demanding riders: “We believe that the product is the heart of a company, and as a result most of our efforts are spent on the research, development and testing of the collection. We create products so nobody has to get out of the water because they are cold or uncomfortable.” Julien Salles answers our questions about the brand’s redesigned luggage collection, additions to the wetsuit line, harness fit and more.
