Mitu is very meticulous and involved when it comes to his Pro Model. There’s no shortcut with his testing. His approach is fueled by a lot of curiosity and a very fine analysis on how the board operates. Totally focused from day one, he invests all his experience into the tests. Offshore, side-off, onshore, Ponta Preta, Kite-beach, surfing, jumping, the board must tick all the boxes to be this all-in-one ripping machine. Sizes: 5’2, 5’4, 5’6, 5’8, 5’10

Awesome first session with the new GRAVITY V2 1200 & 1400 Surf / SUP Foil wings! Targeted at people who want a wing to foil in a variety of waves from small and mellow to taller and faster. Very fluid through the turns, allowing to draw tight or long curves with good speed control and good pumping to go after the next wave.
New for 2018 F-One presents the WTF!? Lite Tech kiteboard. With a fresh freestyle new school outline, this board is designed to be versatile and efficient for greater pop. It features raised tips for smooth landings along with thinner rails associated to the central and tip channels help to get a grip along with edging. The board’s greater width helps with early planing and landing stability. The flat deck with its offset bolt pattern are designed to accommodate boot bindings. Finally, the double concave makes it comfortable and an excellent freeride board too.

The Furtive features a high aspect ratio for high performance and 5 struts to control the profile. The leading edge arc is reduced to develop the maximum of power for a given area. Its profile has been developed to ensure maximum traction at the edge of the window. Its W5 bridle is totally innovative and brings together the function of a bridle and a 5th line! We have called it W5 due to its W pattern which includes a central line to control the leading edge arc, like a 5th line. It provides perfect distortion control and the central line further helps with the depower of the kite.
