If you have the chance to go to Maui, you will see a lot of F-One wing on the water. It’s a testament to the success of the F-One wing program. Maui riders are tough to please as they are constantly on the lookout for the best gear available and to push the boundaries of every single wind water sports you can imagine. A lot of wingers were patiently waiting to see what the all new STRIKE was all about and the feedback has been phenomenal. We asked our local ambassador Christian Barcellos what he thought of the new wing; and also Paige Alms, better known for riding giant waves, although she loves to wing when the wind shows up. Both of them know the Swing very well, so it’s always interesting to her them talk about the new STRIKE.
With silky smooth yet reactive handling, the Breeze feels really light in the air, staying put through the biggest holes in the wind. Its bar pressure rings in at light to medium with nice smooth progressive power and its airframe exhibits really good canopy structure, stability and control. One quality we particularly savored is the design’s unloaded turning characteristics that allowed the kite to turn while sheeted out with little line tension. Often in foiling, you want to change the kite’s window position but don’t want to heat up the magic carpet ride and the Breeze allows you to make those changes without pouring fuel on the fire.
