More than an icon or a best-seller, the MITU PRO MODEL is first and foremost Mitu MONTEIRO’s own board and this can mean only one thing: the board just as the man behind it remains firmly at the top of its game year after year. Available Sizes: 5’2, 5’4, 5’6, 5’8 & 5’10
David Tonijuan has been competing in the world tour but he needed something else, to feel free in the water again, happy and enjoying every moment like when he started. He has started his own tour, starting in Greece where the place is gorgeous and the conditions for freestyle are probably amongst the best in the world!
On the heel of his win at Nazare a few weeks back and his 4th place finish at Jaws, here is a great interview of Grant “Twiggy” Baker by The Kiteboarder / Brendan Richards, with a focus on his passion for kitesurfing. Twig loves the ocean, no matter what’s under his feet, with a special love at the moment for surf foiling. You can read the full interview here.
The new MANERA Sliding bar offers more freedom of movement and range of motion than the fixed hook. It lets you rotate your body without twisting the harness, for a smoother connection with your kite. The harness doesn’t ride up: as the connection with the kite is closer to the body it doesn’t have the leverage effect of a fixed hook. It is a good alternative for foiling, strapless, surfing.
The new 2019 F-One Touring & Race Collection is now out and available in the North American market. It’s a full revamp of the range, check out the new designs, team riders liek Josh Riccio have been using the new boards during the last 6 months, and they go fast ! You can browse the catalog here or check the F-One website here.
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 !
