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

F-One has a long history as a company focused on simple and clean product lines with excellent feel and performance. The Bandit has been the milestone of the F-One product family and has always been designed with the intention of putting it in the center of freeride category, maximizing its balance between multiple disciplines and attempting to create one of the largest spectrums of use with a single kite. Straddling the needs of surfing, generalist freeride and big air/mega looping freeride with one quiver of kites works for most people, but for other more niche focused kiteboarders the ‘one kite does it all’ approach forces implicit compromises between performance values.
