FREEDOM OF CHOICE SURF FOIL
Ride waves the way you want to not the way you have to.
Easy to catch a wave. Once you are up it rides waves effortlessly without the need for excessive “monkey pumping”. Unless of course you want to pump, then go for it on the way out. IMPORTANT NOTE: There are plenty of foils out there with tons of lift, but they tend to be super slow and can’t keep up with most waves without pumping to generate speed. Faster foils, meanwhile, need more speed to get going and don’t really work for the small, rolling waves foilers love so much. The FSurf package, equipped with our new INFINITY 76 wing, is the best of both worlds. A large outline provides all the low-end lift and pump-ability you’ll ever need, while its unique inverted gull wing shape allows for much faster top-end speeds than foils with similar surface area.
For wake foilers, The FSURF is ideal for those with the foil fever who already know how to handle more lift at slower speeds and hope to ride every wave in sight, both large and small. 3rd wave is a breeze, 4th and 5th are calling your name too. Surf ANY boat, and even ride the flats with a little whip and the power of the pump. This foil is also suggested for heavier riders in the 200 + lb range.

ENDLESS HOVER SUP FOIL
The Hover Glide FSUP Foil is total control over how far and how long you want to ride a wave. The Infinity 84 is the most efficient wing that allows you to glide rather than endlessly pump. Front wing has a large outline providing all the low-end lift you’ll ever need to catch every lump that rolls by. Downward turned wingtips on the rear wing stay in the water providing gripping stability when you are really leaning into your carves.

With 363 liters, the Searcher is our largest SUP and is incredibly versatile. It’s perfect for heavier riders and will float virtually anyone…and their dog. The displacement bow cuts through chop and boat wakes. The round rails and performance rocker line make it perform much like a race board, but much more stable. Going on an expedition? The Searcher has 4 sets of tie-down inserts in the tail and 3 sets in the nose so you can take everything with you. Also for 2016 we’ve strategically placed 5 RAM mount inserts to give you the option to turn the searcher into the ultimate fish catching platform.
Comes with 8″ JL tracker fin.

The story of the DIABLO is first of all a man story. When F-One decided to start the foil kite program it was only because we were able to collaborate with a state of the art designer and factory from the paragliding industry, namely Mr Gin SEOK SONG.
GIN GLIDERS PARAGLIDING is a leading brand of high end and competition paragliders. The DIABLO was designed by Gin SEOK SONG and then tested and developed by two previous paragliding world champions: GIN test pilot Hans BOLLINGER and the F-ONE designer Robert GRAHAM. They used advanced design and manufacturing technologies that have been acquired through many years of paragliding. The experience of this collaboration has enabled us to quickly build a kite that has already placed F-ONE team riders on the podium of international competitions.
The collaboration between F-ONE and GIN GLIDERS was natural because both the companies and the founders GIN SEOK SONG and Raphael SALLES are driven by the same passion. Passion for their respective sport as well as for high end products and innovation.
The DIABLO was a success right from the first few races as Maxime NOCHER was present on the podium with impressive multiple 1st places.
The performances were of course there but the entire team was also focused on the other features that the kite must also have:
Quality: the choice of the fabrics, the construction, and the high quality controls are direct descendants from high end paraglider production.The need for control is greater for foil kites because the body and bridles are more complicated and demand high precision.
Stability and ease of use: our philosophy is not only to target high performance but also to have a kite that is easy to use for everyone.
Bar feeling: for some riders getting into foil kiting it is a new experience so we wanted to have a bar feeling as close as what they are used to having with inflatable kites.
Handling and turning: the way the kite turns and the bar pressures during the turn are key positive aspects of the DIABLO.
Look: because a high end product should also be beautiful the DIABLO has an incredibly majestic presence in the sky.
It’s quite difficult to quantify all of the design and construction features present in the DIABLO, but when flying this incredible wing you will feel the passion, energy and knowledge that the work of the R&D team have achieved.
Mr GIN, two world paragliding champions Hans BOLLINGER and Robert GRAHAM, racing world champion Maxime NOCHER, top foil riders Romain CASTEL and Joey PASQUALI and our experience: only such incredible competences could enable us to enter the top level of foil kites in such a short time.
