Source: iksurfmag.com At A Glance Brand new and eagerly awaited from F-One for 2018 is the WTF!? V1. A true C kite, the WTF!? is for non compromising freestyle riders who demand only the best pop, slack and control from their kite. The WTF!? or, Win The Freestyle, is five strut, high aspect ratio kite. […]
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.
It’s the time of year again when iKsurfmag ask its immense army of readers to take the time to cast their vote in their annual Readers Awards. Over the years these have grown to be the most coveted awards in the industry and the Brands, Riders and Videographers are all after your vote. This is […]
Well built, with a good flex the Signature Series is a very comfortable board to ride. Perhaps not as forgiving as the Mitu it excels when it comes to rail-to-rail carving and also does well in blown out choppy conditions. Big, Fast waves are where it comes alive, and when the going gets tough we are big fans of this shred sled!
F-One have really stepped up their hydrofoil game for 2017 and they were pretty devoted to it last year too. They now offer a huge range of foils not just for kitesurfing, but also for SUP and windsurfing! The Freeride 90/800 set up is an easy to use platform that has been designed to offer enough performance to keep you interested for a long period of time, while still being very forgiving.
This kite completely blew our minds! It flew in barely any wind and performed incredibly well. Foilboarding on the BREEZE was so flowing and felt so easy, the power delivery from the BREEZE for foiling is ideal. Riding on a twin tip was smooth, user friendly and doable in light conditions. This kite should be on your radar if you’re a freeride, foiling fanatic. Likewise, if you’re a school or are at the learning stages then this kite flies in anything and is well worth a look.
On the water the ride through chop is sublime, the HRD rail tech works well to smooth out the bimps and reduce spray. Combined with the softer flex of the glass version you are rewarded with incredible pop and release off the water. The wide outline of the 137 and the deep channels in the bottom of the board then help to smooth the landings. We found the Trax HRD to be a very easy and forgiving board to ride.
