When F-One Tech Rep Gael Espeche gets the call from locals in Cabarete, Dominican Republic, for a nice swell coming in and 25 knots of wind, it was time to book a ticket and jump in the next plane!
Having the right equipment is key to progression. We see too many wing foilers with the wrong size or board, and foils too. Check out this overview of combo set up you can get from F-One.
The Phantom seems like a great option for wingsurfers who are looking for a little more low-end foil-up speed and some extra stability when up and riding. We’d also choose the Phantom for prone and SUP foilsurfing, specifically for the purpose of bumping up our pump game to get back to the top of the reef. The Phantom creates a ton of drive on pumps that help you stay on foil while looking for the next wave or swell to lock into. For wingsurfers, it’s the same game and the Phantom helps you find that energy and creates drive that will help you stay in the glide zone longer. Overall, the Phantom is a very important and timely addition to the F-One lineup with its super drivey and stable ride matched with lightweight but stiff appendages that deliver the perfect high-performance user experience.
