“This year we tested the Mirage with the 800cm Carbon fiber front wing and the 300cm back wing all mounted on the 85cm extruded aluminum mast and a 60cm kite fuselage. This wing overall has a really crisp very solid feel underfoot and overall handles high speeds with a lot of stability, control and ease.”
The F-One IC6 850cm wing is a durable wing that offers a medium foil up speed and much faster high-end speed with extremely stable performance. We tested the IC6 which uses an injected carbon construction to form its front wing, which makes it more durable (and presumably more affordable) than a wing with a carbon fiber glass layup.

The Trax Lite Tech features the HRD rails which is a reverse rolled rail which you can feel in the way this board smoothly slides through chop and carves. Testers commented on the board’s good overall weight (though it’s not quite as light as the carbon version of the Trax) and excellent scores across the board as a user-friendly twin tip offering solid performance and grip for more aggressive freeriders.
Overall the 51TS has a nice flexible feel. It’s not quite as stiff as some of the surfboard foilboard constructions out there but it offers unparalleled durability with all-around good handling that works for entry-level and intermediate foilers.
The TRAX ESL is all about having fun on the water.

“The F-One Pocket Foilboard is one of our favorite freeride boards at 130cm x 47cm with 21.1 liters of flotation. The Pocket is a super fun foilboard that finds a happy medium between flotation and keeping the volume minimalist for more intermediate to advanced riding.”
“Really light kite, great for light wind and foiling; had great power and was stable when the wind picked up. Medium bar pressure, good turning speed, and great hangtime in the light wind with nice manageable power for foiling.” Breeze V2 available in 3, 4, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17m sizes.
Mitu is very meticulous and involved when it comes to his Pro Model. There’s no shortcut with his testing. His approach is fueled by a lot of curiosity and a very fine analysis on how the board operates. Totally focused from day one, he invests all his experience into the tests. Offshore, side-off, onshore, Ponta Preta, Kite-beach, surfing, jumping, the board must tick all the boxes to be this all-in-one ripping machine. Sizes: 5’2, 5’4, 5’6, 5’8, 5’10
Nine years in the making the LV Classic has been an event to raise money for the local up and coming generation of children in La Ventana, Baja California Mexico.
