We could not be more proud of Grant ” Twiggy” Baker, who earlier today claims the Nazare challenge in Praia do Norte in Portugal in epic conditions. Twig is a member of the F-One foil team, an accomplished watermen and now considered a veteran in big wave competition. He has done it for so many years, his last win was in Puerto Escondido last year. He won Mavericks twice already, last time in 2013. There are so many young chargers who are gunning for the top prizes nowadays. big congrats Twig !
Winter is all about strong wind & colds days, this is exactly what the Blizzard jacket is made for. This 3 layers vest is light, waterproof & windproof. The two side-pockets let the spreader bar go through to be used when kiting. That jacket is also perfect for kite instructors. The Blizzard jacket creates a cocoon around the Kiter that allows a far better resistance to cold even with a standard wetsuit. Whether you are on the water or debriefing the session on the beach, the Blizzard will keep you warm & comfy.

Check out this sneak preview of the new Eclipse Harness coming Fall 2018. This is Manera’s version of a hard shell harness featuring an Adaptive Shell Concept, Low-profile cut and a perfect balance between stiffness and flex.
Race One started with all but Johnny Heineken (1,1,1) and Joey Pasquali (3,4,3) starting on starboard. Johnny and Joey just squeaked across the fleet and headed out. As the fleet tacked out Joey and Johnny were looking launched, but as we got closer to the lay line the fleet inside clearly had more pressure. At the windward mark it was Joey, then Johnny but followed by Daniella Moroz (2,2,5) and Kai Calder (4,7,9)

With three constructions and two sizes, there are a few decisions to make before you purchase a Slice. As long as you choose the right board in the range for you, we think you’ll be impressed. The pop of the carbon board is incredible, while the smooth, snappy lines you can draw with the other two will bring endless smiles to your face. The new Slice from F-One is one of the best all-round wave boards out there at the moment…
The F-One Bandit is now in its 11th year of production and is still taking names and kicking ass when it comes to three strut all-round kites. It’s been the benchmark for some time now and with many brands trying to emulate the success of the kite. At one stage it was F-One’s only kite, and arguably some of its success can be attributed to that. However, you can’t understate just how good the kite has been over the years.
