"Mitu rides the same board on flat water, small onshore waves, extreme offshore conditions and just free surfing "
The level of strapless riding has increased so much for both the professionals and also for the average rider.
When riding strapless, any weight loss translates into a direct advantage for the wind to keep the board pressed against your feet. From the very first prototypes, the feedback on the carbon built Mitu was excellent!
We have focused our development work on the technology and materials to offer the best possible construction. This was done following two main criteria:
- The Weight: everything has been done to get an extremely light and reliable board. We have decided to use a HD FOAM CARBON COMPOSITE construction with a brushed finish that allows for a lighter weight. This sandwich construction (High Density Foam / Carbon) has been used for several years in our SUP range and allows us to reach an ideal weight/resistance ratio.
- The Comfort: we have worked specifically on the flex of the board as carbon tends to naturally bring more stiffness. We have selected a 45° bi-axial carbon fabric, to get rid of any longitudinal fibers and to keep the flex of the board.
With its exceptional shape and this HD FOAM CARBON COMPOSITE technology bringing significant weight advantages, the Mitu is transformed and provides incredible sensations.
How many surfers have broken boards and wished they could replace it with a new one and get the same sensations they are used too?
Mitu once asked me:
Raph, can you try this board and make me the same one; it feels really good under my feet
I went out and tested this strapless board and was astonished by the control and sensations that the board gave me.
After a few runs, I started analyzing what was giving me this sensation of control. I realized that my front foot was nestled in a heel dent and that my arch was fully supported on the rounded deck. I could see that Mitu had spent so many hours on the board, that it had taken the shape of his foot.
I then understood that I needed to make a board with the top deck pre-shaped to get this sensation on a new board.
With its unique design, the CAMEL DRIVE DECK will offer multiple advantages: It will lower and stabilize the heel of the surfer and lock its arch on a rounded center line. It will improve stability, maneuverability and increase the rider’s board control in any conditions.
The introduction of this new construction represents a major change into the F-ONE surfboard range: the two Key products (MITU MONTEIRO & SIGNATURE) are now dispensed with bamboo.
To face the ever higher constrains applied by the riders on their surfkites, F-ONE has engineered a new foam composite construction with optimized flex, for maximum reliability, comfort and maneuverability.
The mechanical characteristics achieved by this construction provide a lighter weight and a perfect surfboard feel.
The deck has been recessed by 5 mm on a wide area underneath the front foot in order to add an EVA shock absorbing foam layer.
This foam layer absorbs effectively all impacts for the rider and makes the board even more durable.
