The Bandit S continues to deliver that perfect mix of surf characteristics that offers a really tight handling feel that is both controlled and precise. The Bandit S is hands down a top-tier surf kite, but it’s progressive power delivery, crisp steering and depower makes it a great option for all-around freeride for fun boosting as well as foilboarding.
Maybe some you have already heard of this ocean accident in the news, a huge container vessel named the ONE APUS that lost more than 1800 containers in the pacific; something of that scale is unheard of. And unfortunately, two of our inbound containers that should have arrived in our warehouse in the next several days were on that vessel. At this time, we don’t know if our containers are lost or if they are still on the vessel and/or intact.
LIAM WHALEY – RED BULL KING OF THE AIR 2021 VIDEO ENTRY
DECEMBER 4, 2020
F-One’s Liam Whaley is stoked for the Red Bull KOTA 2021. He’s been training more than previous years. Recently injured at the latest GKA event in Brazil, he’s going to do everything possible to get come from his knee injury in time to compete.
TKB Magazine put together a comprehensive list of what’s new for F-One this upcoming year, they did the same with Manera very recently and they always provide a great wealth of insider information on the products, the why, the when, for who, etc… a must read.
That was just a matter of time, F-One Team rider Maxime Chabloz just won his first ever World Tour event in Brazil, well deserved Maxime! Not easy to run a kite event during a pandemic but the GKA pullet it off. Liam Whaley suffered an injury and couldn’t finish, we wish him a super fast recovery and hope to see him soon on the tour.
100% owned and run by the same French family since its inception, Manera products are made to brave the worst conditions and abuse. With major changes to the wetsuit line, tweaks to its harness offerings and unique new booties specifically designed for kiters, Manera’s Julien Salles is super excited to share their 2021 collection.
2020, a year like no others.
A year where life as we have known it doesn’t exist anymore.
Luckily we are passionate about the ocean.
This means that even when we are stuck at home not being able to ride, we always have something to look forward to.
The new MANERA boots come in two models, the MAGMA 5mm and the X10D 3mm. Both are designed in 3D for a perfect fit and with no velcro, which is one of our favorite feature (no more flapping and sticking to your wetsuit when in a bag or a bucket). They are very easy to put on and off and dry very quickly. The grip is also top notch, overall great boots.
