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.

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.
After 14 years of development of the Bandit we always get the same question: how will you improve it again? Our passion is to improve things and for us even when we go into the validation process, it’s just a step in the evolution process. Every season we choose to work on a specific point that should be improved. Let’s take the automotive R&D example to illustrate: one season they work on the engine and gain power, the following year, they need to improve the body to allow it to fit the new engine power, then they have an issue with the shock absorbers and so on…
