TKB WING REVIEW: 2020 F-ONE ROCKET WING V1

17 Apr , 2020  

The Rocket Wing 5’10” is a dedicated board shape for wingsurfing with a thicker deck, wider template and chined rails specifically designed for the sport of wingsurfing. What does that mean? It offers you sufficient volume for learning with a smaller outline so that you can use that board for performance wingsurfing through intermediate and advanced skill levels. There are no inserts so you will be learning this sport strapless and the deck is nice and flat which we think is the best surface for control inputs to the foil. The Rocket Wing has a handle on the underbelly which is a critical feature for carrying both a larger volume board and your wing at the same time. It is attention to details like this that make these boards worth the splurge for beginners. The bottom features a foil mounting track with visual indicators that help you mount your foil in the same spot every time, and the tracks have a plug that prevents you from losing your hardware during disconnected transport. The Rocket Wing features a full deck pad which will be much easier on your knees.

TKB REVIEW: F-One Swing is the gold standard of wingsurfing

7 Apr , 2020  

“The freshman effort of the F-One team seems to have landed solidly on the nose with a focus on lightweight build and finely tuned performance that gives you a wing that works well for riders of all skill levels from beginner to professional. It’s important to remind ourselves how the historical innovation curve of kiteboarding played out over the first 10 years, which means there is much left to discover here, but it is our editorial opinion that the F-One Swing is the gold standard of wingsurfing’s start.” Tkb Staff

Part III Wingsurfer’s Guide Through Progression | How to choose the right wing, foil and board | by Brian Friedmann

5 Mar , 2020  

This is the third and final blog on my Wingsurfers Guide Through Progression. If you missed the two earlier blogs on getting started you can review them here. They will help to give some context on my experience during the early days (funny, just 3 months ago) and lead up to this final blog. Thanks in advance for reviewing and hopefully this will help some of you out that are learning this relatively new sport. Now well into my efforts to become better at winging I’m very happy with the progress to date. As mentioned in previous blogs, it’s a quick learn if you can keep at it. I’ve had the luxury of getting to try a good amount of the F-One Winging lineup and finding the right gear for the right conditions is helpful and makes the learning curve much quicker. With the right gear you’ll spend way more time up foiling and avoid getting exhausted trying to get up or stay up on foil. After a few months of practice, I can now competently get up on foil, stay upwind, tack, jibe, surf swell and have a great time out on the water doing it. Throughout this time, I started on larger boards, foils and wings and moved to smaller ones as my skills progressed. Here’s what I found works well for me now.

Part II Wingsurfer’s Guide Through Progression | ROCKET WING BOARDS | by Brian Friedmann

30 Dec , 2019  

This is part two in a three-part series on the experiences of a wingsurfers guide through progression. We had a bit of a break in the wind here in La Ventana allowing for some rest and reflection.
As mentioned in part one , I started this winging journey recently and wanted to pass along some of the experiences as new people learn about this exciting sport. Now, with roughly a month of solid riding behind me there has been a lot that has been learned and still more to know. I’m spending this season in La Ventana, a well-known kiting destination that I’ve visited many times over the past 14 years. It’s the perfect learning grounds for wing surfing. Coming from a strong kite surf background and focused purely on wave riding, I’m excited how winging has transformed my perception of a place like La Ventana that has “no waves”. This is true, there is very little in the way of “surf” here but there’s a good amount of deep water swell. Swell that can be easily ridden with a foil and wing which has made La Ventana, do I dare say it, a “surf destination” when viewed through the lens of riding swell with a wing and foil
