We are offering a board designed for SUP, Windsurf, and foil : The PAPENOO
Just writing these words down seems incredible!!! Who could have thought of it
even a few months ago? Life is full of surprises and this is why our job is so
Yes, 20 years down the road, F-ONE is offering a windsurfing board,again!
After 4 years of work on the kitefoil, we?ve received demand from windsurfers
and we have designed specific wings to offer them the products they need.
Then came along the question of the board and the PAPENOO Foil convertible
appeared ideal for ?windfoiling?.
ts wide outline at the tail provides enough volume to be in the right position
for lift off and the wide width creates plenty of stability. The foil box is
located perfectly to optimize lift off and in-flight balance. Equipped with two
front foot-straps and a mast track, the board can also be used as a normal
windsurf board for light wind wave riding.
This version is further reinforced on deck and around the foot-straps: the whole
area running from the mast track to the foil insert is strengthened by double
bamboo carbon construction. The PAPENOO WINDFOIL Convertible is available in
BAMBOO DECK or PRO CARBON versions.
On the water:
Our team already knew the feeling of foiling with a kite but the first
windsurfing tests brought in some new sensations!
The difference between being on the water or in flight is even more significant
with the windsurfing gear than with the kite. Everything becomes so soft and
silent once in flight. The sensations are totally new and absolutely gripping.
The efficiency of the foil in light winds is a real advantage as it becomes
possible to use a much smaller rig for a given wind strength.
The PAPENOO truly is an incredible and extremely versatile board, proving
excellent in so many different disciplines: SUP, Windsurf, SUP-Foil and
