New for 2018 F-One presents the WTF!? Lite Tech kiteboard. With a fresh freestyle new school outline, this board is designed to be versatile and efficient for greater pop. It features raised tips for smooth landings along with thinner rails associated to the central and tip channels help to get a grip along with edging. The board’s greater width helps with early planing and landing stability. The flat deck with its offset bolt pattern are designed to accommodate boot bindings. Finally, the double concave makes it comfortable and an excellent freeride board too.
The F-one foil family offers a diverse selection of various mast lengths, fuselage lengths, mast base mounting types and multiple wing sizes to optimize the performance to your skill level and style of riding. The combo that we tested is F-One’s general freeride foil package mated with the sandwich style construction TS foilboard.
The Furtive features a high aspect ratio for high performance and 5 struts to control the profile. The leading edge arc is reduced to develop the maximum of power for a given area. Its profile has been developed to ensure maximum traction at the edge of the window. Its W5 bridle is totally innovative and brings together the function of a bridle and a 5th line! We have called it W5 due to its W pattern which includes a central line to control the leading edge arc, like a 5th line. It provides perfect distortion control and the central line further helps with the depower of the kite.
The F-One 51 TS foil board is a unique model blending the great qualities and resilience of a tough top sheet construction with the ease of use and performance of all F-One foilboards.
“Very quick, lots of depower, loves to jump, a bit punchy but fast responsive boost and really fun kite on the more aggressive side.” // Dray Murray

Our team headed down to La Ventana, Baja Mexico to participate in this week-long extravaganza filled with good people, great food, kite races, sup downwinders and much more. We wanted to extend a special thank you to Marina Chang and her team as well as Tim Holter From Palapas Ventana for continuing to put on this wonderful event for a great cause.
“It’s for the kids!” This past week, athletes from all over the world came together in the small town of La Ventana, Baja California Sur, to raise a record number of over $35,000 (USD, not Pesos!). All the proceeds go towards supporting the local schools and education system.
