F-One Signiture Kitesurf Surfboard 2012
F-One Signiture Surfboard 2012 Overview
Radical innovation here, 100% new shapes, two boards that represent the culmination of 15 years of R&D on kite boards dedicated to wave riding.
By giving up some surf principles for creating kite specifics, they are no longer surfboards tweaked for kite use, but real surfboards developed specifically for having a kite in your hands, whatever the conditions.
Because a kitesurfer does not need a lot of volume to take off - as opposed to a paddle surfer - the volume distribution was optimized through a unique new shape: an inverted concave deck. It allows to both lower the center of gravity and to increase the control by reducing the thickness of the board under the front leg, without affecting the profiles of the rails. The result is a significant gain of control in your turns. The inverted concave deck allows the use of pads twice as thick under your front legs to further enhance comfort.
What's new in terms of shape does not stop at the deck: the new double concave V-shaped bottom and ultra progressive rocker allows for improved edging, acceleration, turning radius and radical angles; all this with more control and ease of use.
Comfort is also enhanced by the choice of a double concave with V providing a smooth ride through the chop and faster transition from rail to rail.
Equipped with a quad fin setup, the gain in maneuverability allows committed surfing whatever the conditions. Small or large, the waves do not define your commitment; but the ways you enter in your turns are now open to you. With the quad design, you will adapt the turning radius to your style, whether tight, fast, drawn out or slashed turns. Versatile these are the real kite surfboards.
2 sizes for 2 programs slightly different:
The 5'10: for faster, powerful waves and/or in strong winds.
The 6'0: in conditions less radical, or to gain stability in large surf.
