F-One Ocean SUP Foil Race Board 2017
The aim of the 2017 F-One Ocean SUP foil race board is to surf the ocean swell downwind to lift off with a race supfoil and glide off as far as possible. This type of practice is a little more restrictive as it requires the right logistics and weather forecast, but what a feeling it is to glide above the swell with nothing more than a SUP and a paddle.
The shape of the OCEAN 10’ is not only restricted to downwind racing but is also suited to surfing outside reefs. It becomes possible to catch and surf the waves that rise further offshore and then paddle back to the peak after a long surf, even if that’s going upwind. Race Supfoiling becomes a mix of navigating and flying. What kind of board is required to take-off on a downwinder and what kind of board is required to maintain flight as long as possible?
F-One have opted for a length of 10’ to get enough speed to catch the swell and bumps, while remaining light and compact enough for the behavior in flight. Here again, starting from such a blank page, they were able to unleash our design experience and get out of the beaten tracks.
Outline, volume, rocker, hull and nose shape are all previously unseen on a racing SUP board. Box location and feet position have been optimized for an early lift off to maximize your enjoyment and the distance with your trailing competitors.
