Fernando Novaes alias “Mizo” is a talented surfer from Sao Paulo, Brazil. He started foiling a few years back to be able to spend as much time on the water regardless of the conditions. His ride is like poetry, flawless but powerful with a lot of grace.

LIAM WHALEY – RED BULL KING OF THE AIR 2021 VIDEO ENTRY
DECEMBER 4, 2020
F-One’s Liam Whaley is stoked for the Red Bull KOTA 2021. He’s been training more than previous years. Recently injured at the latest GKA event in Brazil, he’s going to do everything possible to get come from his knee injury in time to compete.
F-One team rider Titouan Galea just won the very first GWA wing foil event in Fortaleza, Brazil. Next up will be the Tarifa Wing Pro at the end of the year. Bravo Titou! and also to Maxime Chabloz for landing the very first perfect backflip in a competition. We are fortunate to have those 2 in the F-One team
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.
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.
We had this idea to bring them all to a place where we could (legally) fly a drone, get some footage from the water (thanks GoPro) and the shore too (check out the album here) and Treasure Island that day (Saturday Sep 19, 2020) was the spot to go. There is no beach per say, more like a windsurfing spot, but who needs a beach when you wing foil?
Since 2015, unbeknown to most, F-One and their head board designer Charles Bertrand have been developing dedicated boards for wheelchair athletes with the help of SitKite godfather Thierry Schmitter. Here is the updated sitkite board collection. F-One is using their know-how and access to technology used on our surf and foilboards collection to improve the previous models. You can download the new specs below.
We met Chris & Chris Jr. MacDonald, dad & son early in the spring during the lockdown at Crissy Beach in San Francisco. The parkings were closed but not the beach, which was just a great way for all kiters, windsurfers and wingers to get their daily dose of happy water time, and this is the time of the year where it blows hard every day. Young Chris progression in a few months has been quite phenomenal and we are happy to report he has join our National team program.
