"Mitu rides the same board on flat water, small onshore waves, extreme offshore conditions and just free surfing "
Iconic and best-seller, Mitu Monteiro pro Model’s range keeps on improving whilst keeping the qualities that make it so successful: 100% dedicated to strapless riding, developed by a legendary rider for a very versatile use, whether in the waves or for freestyle, and adapting to all riding levels.
Strapless pioneer, Mitu has an incredible level of ride and an amazing experience which keeps growing every year. He has been extremely involved in his Pro Model’s development from the start and has pushed the limits of this board to make an all-in-one ripping machine.
Accomplished waterman, he is testing loads of kitesurfing and surfing boards with a lot of curiosity, feeling and a very advanced analysis of them. His approach therefore stays true to F-ONE’s ethos of creating products that are high performing but always remain ultra-versatile.
With its compact outline, its rounded nose and a round rocker along the rail combined to a very deep concave on the bottom, the Pro Model keeps its shape’s DNA. The Early planing, sharp accelerations and directional stability which make the board’s great success in freestyle as in surfing can be felt right away. Besides the single concave which also provides great comfort, the bottom features a channel at the front of the board to help while landing or riding fins front.
4 sizes are available from 5’4’’ to 5’10’’, all with a pretty large outline to make the most of the wave’s energy, make the tricks easier and provide better handling. The whole range now has the more pronounced rocker which was previously only on the small boards. The boards’ volume has therefore been increased to make it easier to ride in average conditions and improve the durability.
The Camel Deck shape on the deck helps nesting your feet into the board for an incredible control. The Mitu Monteiro Pro Models have a thruster fin setup for a better glide and reduced weight in the tricks.
HD FOAM COMPOSITES: Our standard in terms of design. This construction offers great flex and is very enjoyable in the waves, and also has deck stringers for durability. These boards have shock absorbers as well as a full deck pad for a unique comfort. They can be equipped with straps and with our F-ONE FLOW fins.
As the strapless discipline develops and grows, so does the demands it puts on the boards. With higher jumps and tougher landings, the stresses applied to the boards have migrated towards the rails and we have reinforced some of our constructions with lateral deck stringers to make the boards more robust in these areas. These stringers are not full depth to keep the flex and feel of the board.
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.
To face the ever higher constrains applied by the riders on their surfkites, F-ONE has engineered a 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.
