THE BOARDS of the signature series come from our kitesurfing experience and have been redesigned over the years to evolve along with kiting in the waves
The SIGNATURE boards are designed for pure surfing and stem from long evolution of out kite surfboards. Every year, their shape gets better to make your surf riding ever more natural and free.
Stable and easy to handle, the SIGNATURES are designed to surf any kinds of waves and conditions. They benefit from a very well balanced and really intuitive shape. These boards are able to carve short turns as well as long and fast curves with ease and effortlessly. Surfing becomes such a pleasure when you can focus on the waves and not on how to get your board moving. Just look ahead, these boards will follow!
The bottom shape features a single concave which runs towards the back before fading down at the tail. The rocker has a double kick in it to carve some great curves while the speed remains under control at any time. Going from rail to rail is as quick as ever with a board which enters the turns with ease and gains in maneuverability with its round pin tail.
Benefitting from more volume and length, the 5’10 will fit the larger riders or the larger waves. Being much more compact, the 5’6 will be the nimblest to ride shorter, tighter waves. Lastly, the 5’8 will be at ease in all kinds of conditions and will let you carve the most radical turns and rollers.
The rail is thick and rounded towards the nose to make the board more forgiving with more stability and support from the front sections. It gets noticeably thinner and sharper towards the back for unmatched control.
The SIGNATURES are equipped with 5 fin boxes and let you decide whether you want to ride them Thruster or Quattro, depending on your style or on the conditions. For the most versatile setup, go for the Thruster.
With the Camel Deck shape, the volume has been maximized in the middle sections of the boards before fading out towards to tail to keep heel of the rear foot as low as possible for a better control
HD FOAM FLEX COMPOSITE: Our middle construction level built around an HD foam sandwich layup, offering a little more flex for a better feel in the waves. This version includes the shock absorbers and a full deck pad for a unique comfort. The board can be fitted with foot straps and our new F-One FLOW fins.
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.
