The F-one foil family offers a diverse selection of various mast lengths, fuselage lengths, mast base mounting types and multiple wing sizes to optimize the performance to your skill level and style of riding. The combo that we tested is F-One’s general freeride foil package mated with the sandwich style construction TS foilboard.
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.

Day one heats were posted and every heat was stacked. The odds weren’t looking good for the average Joe, John, Phil, or Jeff. Bluerush and F-One ripper, Phil Tressenrider started off the day with a good heat nabbing some good waves on his way to a solid second. Then Haakon went to town on his heat with a newly styled and neatly manicured facial growth, clearly a sign that teenaged Haakon is gone and man Haakon is here. Zane Schweitzer was in my heat and he was a bundle of nerves looking at my hat. He knew he was in for a tough heat and I had him dead to rights when the heat started on account of getting a wave right at the buzzer. Unfortunately, there were still 18 minutes and 49 seconds left for him to dismantle the next five waves which meant the heat went to him. I was happy with second.
The F-One 51 TS foil board is a unique model blending the great qualities and resilience of a tough top sheet construction with the ease of use and performance of all F-One foilboards.
“Very quick, lots of depower, loves to jump, a bit punchy but fast responsive boost and really fun kite on the more aggressive side.” // Dray Murray

With three constructions and two sizes, there are a few decisions to make before you purchase a Slice. As long as you choose the right board in the range for you, we think you’ll be impressed. The pop of the carbon board is incredible, while the smooth, snappy lines you can draw with the other two will bring endless smiles to your face. The new Slice from F-One is one of the best all-round wave boards out there at the moment…
The F-One Bandit is now in its 11th year of production and is still taking names and kicking ass when it comes to three strut all-round kites. It’s been the benchmark for some time now and with many brands trying to emulate the success of the kite. At one stage it was F-One’s only kite, and arguably some of its success can be attributed to that. However, you can’t understate just how good the kite has been over the years.
