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.
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.
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.
This is the perfect accessory to change before and after riding, plus it will get you warm and dry in a minute. Poncho is a widely used product, but we’ve been looking for a warmer, softer, cleaner and greener product.
This new version features a higher collar that protects your neck from the wind, a larger bottom cut to improve freedom of movement and a hood tightening system.
The F-One & Manera demo tour in Florida will kick off tomorrow October 31 in Jacksonville, at the Huguenot Park. And the forecast looks great!
Come to try out all the new 2021 collection of kites, surfs, twin tips, foils and wing
To me, this suit redefines the category of a year-round daily driver suit. Your daily driver suit (which for me in Northern California is a 4/3) is going to wear out faster than your winter or summer suit, simply because you’ll be using it the most often, so the cost shouldn’t be exorbitant. But, because you’ll be using it the most often, you don’t want to saddle yourself with a low-quality suit, either. Both of these problems are fixed with Manera’s Seafarer, and in answer to the question printed on the inside lining, I am looking to build a serious long-lasting relationship with this suit and many Manera suits to come.
We have just received our first batch of BANDIT S2 and because of Covid, we have had no opportunities to test it out with the F-One team ahead of its release. So we were pretty excited and mother nature was nice and rewarded us with strong wind and a good first swell of the fall season. That was my first time going back to Waddell in a while and the devastation after the fires that have engulfed so many areas in the state and on the San Mateo and Santa Cruz coastline is pretty shocking. We have had numerous people we know that have lost a good chunk of their properties and for some their house and I could not help but think of how crazy this year has been. Going to the water is always the best way to clear our minds. So here are our first impressions with the S2 and they are GOOD!
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.
Thanks to a stiffer center area, the EXO 2.0 perfectly supports the back. However, it allows greater freedom of movement thanks to its different levels of rigidity, especially its flexible outline.
