The 2019 freestyle championship season just ended with the last event in Brazil with 17 year old teen Colombian rider on top and F-One Liam Whaley 3rd overall. Maxime Chabloz ended 4th and Nicolas Delmas 8th.
Long time F-One team rider Mitu Monteiro ends up the season on a high by holding onto his overall second place on the GKA Kite-Surf World Championship tour. Bravo Mitu! and congrats to Airton and all the competitors to bring kitesurfing to new heights this year. And congrats to Camille Delannoy on his podium finish at the Prea event.

We are just back from one week of multi sports water activity in Punta San Carlos, Baja Mexico where Solosports hosted our annual F-One wave camp. We had a great time with a dozen guys that came from as far as Israel to experience the beauty of Baja and the waves of of PSC (short for Punta San Carlos) and to get a go at the 2020 collection of kites (Bandit-2020 and bandit-S), boards (new Mitu and Shadow boards), Wing (Swing), Foilboards (Rocket SUP, Rocket Wing), Hydrofoils (Gravity 1800 and 2200). This spot is turning into the best playground possible if you want to kitesurf (of course!), but also SUP surf, SUP foil, Wing Foil, Wing Surf, Surf Foil, and more. So much so that we are planning a camp with a focus on Wingsurfing next year. Stay tuned to that. F-One has all the best gear possible for Wing surfing with the Swing, but also its Gravity series foil and multitude of boards

This is how long it took to gather and coordinate the four Kamchatka photoshoot essentials: The best local team, four world class riders, logistics (visas, permits, tickets, boat, tents, vehicles…), two photographers and a cameraman with unwavering dedication.
Twelve kiteboarders took on a never before done Xtreme Challenge in the Dominican Republic! Kiteboarding over 117km along the beautiful northern coastline of the island, from Cabarete to Buen Hombre.
MANERA will be launching its new movie on Monday, October 14th. The trip took place in Kamchatka (Russia) with Maxime Chabloz, Camille Delannoy, Paul Serin & Mallory de la Villemarqué. Premieres will happen around the globe before the launch. Best one to date!
DESIGNED IN 3D
When the industry standard widely develop 2D patterns and try to fit it on a 3D body, we decided to break new ground and take the opposite direction. We used computer design to model good-fitted wetsuits in 3D, then we employ an innovative software that converts it into a precise 2D pattern for the factory. It creates a natural, second-skin fit that makes the MANERA wetsuits stand out.
