23 years of trying out new things
18 years of trips around the world
2019 – We are One –
18 years ago we were going on trips to kiteboard
We were looking for places for one particular discipline
Then we added surfboards and SUPs to our boardbags
Foils changed completely our ways to ride and today Wingsurfing has brought a whole new world of opportunities
By bringing all the riders, no matter their speciality on the same spot at the same time, together we are one
We share that one passion which drives everything we do.
We have entered a new chapter and it is all about sharing
From its offices in the south of France, F-One has grown from a small family operation in kiteboarding’s earliest days to a global kiteboarding brand with a complete line of products covering every segment of ripstop-based windsports. 2020 will be a big year for the family-run outfit with a groundbreaking addition to the Bandit line of kites along with a new ram-air all-terrain kite, a wing surfing product and small innovative tweaks to the board and foil lineup.
F-One Kite Ambassador and local Wadell (well known kite surfing spot near Santa Cruz) resident Brian Friedmann is fleeing the upcoming cold and often windless Pacific North West Coast and will be spending the winter in La Ventana, Baja Mexico. La Ventana is a fantastic destination in the winter, with strong daily thermal wind, great vibes, good food, and plenty of outdoor things to do. Brian recently started winging and he is telling us his progression from bigger board to smaller ones, including the rocket air surf, the F-One inflatable foilboard series. Not everybody are or will be able to ride very small boards (<50L) when winging, but that being said the smaller you can deal with, the more freedom you have, whether wing surfing or not. The Wing revolution is marching on and we are all having so much fun with it
The new ROCKET WIND range will make your windfoil experience easier and deliver what is probably the most intuitive performance setup.
Available in three sizes with a 135l for comfortable volume, a 120l for the smaller rigs and a 105l as a pocket shape designed for a free-move approach.
