About Us

BAKS Logo

BAKS Distribution is the North American distributor for F-One & Manera, run by the same family, based in the south of France and well known for making innovative and premium products for surfing, kiting, winging and foiling. F-One designs, tests and produces the hardware gear you need to practice all these sports such as wings, foils, kites, and boards. Manera makes soft goods such as wetsuits so nobody has to get out of the water because they are cold or uncomfortable. F-One was born in 1996, Manera a little later being an offspring of F-One. We, as the North American distributor, have been in this business since 2006, and both of these brands are currently growing exponentially as they are widely recognized as leaders in their own markets.
