I wanted to take a minute and fill everyone in on the new 2020 F-One Wing Board series and my experiences so far. Get excited, because this series is going to be a HIT and will be available soon! We are just back from a week in Punta San Carlos for our annual Kitesurfing camp hosted by Solosports, and I had a great time with the Swing, the Gravity foils and the new Rocket Wing we had received a few days prior. So much fun wing surfing the waves of PSC!
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 SLICE has become an all-out strapless freestyle machine and is as well an easy and intuitive board to ride in the waves! Available in three sizes 5’1 , 5’3 & 5’5 and three constructions (Pro Carbon Comp, Pro Flex & Pro Bamboo). Get all the details on our 2020 Slice Collection!
Take a closer look at F-One’s Bandit-S, a dedicated strapless and surf kite and the choice of champions and riders who truly value surfing with a kite.
