F-One - Foil - Kite - Products


15 Dec , 2016  

While F-One has been around since the very beginning, it is now celebrating 10 years of production of their signature Bandit kite. As the company continues to improve and refine the 2017 Bandit, this year it has added a full line of Foilboard products that explore every niche of the hydrofoiling market. In addition to a new kite and some tech tweaks to the twin tips, F-One is also launching the Mitu Surfboard in a long awaited and exciting carbon construction. Owner/Founder/Designer Raphael Salles walks us through the highlights of F-One’s 2017 lineup.

NEXT LW: The best of both worlds

22 Jul , 2016   Gallery

This is the LW version of F-One’s popular Next twin tip with an all new pad/strap system and fresh graphics for 2016. The Next LW is a biaxial glass and wood construction deck with F-One’s unique reverse profile surf rail and rounded template. The Next LW comes in two sizes; we tested the larger. It takes the upside of a skim board and combines these traits with an easy-to-use kiteboard that works well in the lightest of conditions.
