F-One - Foil - Manera - Team

Joey Pasquali joins the F-One & Manera US Team

1 May , 2015  

Joey has been racing in San Francisco for years, won last season BLUERUSH Thursday Night Kite Racing Series and recently finished 5th at the Gold Cup in La Ventana, an event where none of the world top racers were missing.  He started the 2015 racing season in San Francisco by winning the first night with 2 bullets and one second place ahead of Johnny Heineken on the new F-One foil kites.

I believe he is a natural fit for the new F-One & Manera USA Racing team and with him as the leader of this team we are currently putting together,  not only we do have a top competitor, but we also have a great ambassador for foiling in general, and he will be able to answer all the technical questions you might have with regards to the F-One foiling gear, whether it’s the hydrofoil or the foil kites. Joey is spending a great deal of his time at Crissy Field to train (when he is not working on a tugboat helping the giant cargos navigate the waters of the Bay) so feel free to contact him if you want to demo some gear. He is also a Bluerush team rider and with Bluerush as a F-One & Manera dealer, you have your connection to get the latest and fastest gear there is. We wish Joey a great season ! Says Nico Ostermann
