Manera’s Big Wave surfer ambassador Justine Dupont has been on total fire in her wild tour on the west coast, from Mavericks to Todos Santos then on to Maui where she caught the biggest barrel of her life tow surfing Jaws on Super Swell Saturday (Jan 19, 2021). Conditions have been absolutely EPIC and that all started at Mavericks back in December. Check out her massive barrel and also a recap of her tour (in French) below.

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.
The new MANERA boots come in two models, the MAGMA 5mm and the X10D 3mm. Both are designed in 3D for a perfect fit and with no velcro, which is one of our favorite feature (no more flapping and sticking to your wetsuit when in a bag or a bucket). They are very easy to put on and off and dry very quickly. The grip is also top notch, overall great boots.
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!

Nelson Pinto is a respected Gaucho freesurfer in Brazil, but also an excellent film producer, shaper and more recently kitesurfer. What qualifies Nelson’s lifestyle is freedom and passion… He has made his own way to become the person he is now, and he is not afraid to go off the beaten tracks.
Calm and devoted, Nelson has a degree in advertising and knows how to use his skills and how to express himself through his creations. The surf industry definitely needs more of this kind of personality to add a little bit more to it.
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.
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.
