Stable and easy to handle, the F-One Shadow is designed to surf any kinds of waves and conditions. It benefits from a very well balanced and really intuitive shape. This board is able to carve short turns as well as long and fast curves effortlessly.
Designed to inspire confidence in every turn and rail-to-rail transfers, the camel deck and its moderate volume deliver the perfect amount of control. You get a lot of feedback from the board underfoot which gives you the flow to engage big or super snappy vertical-style turns.
Perfectly balanced, changing feet, turning and jibing are easy and effortless and surfing becomes such a pleasure when you can focus on the waves and not on how to get your board moving. The bottoms are as easy as they are incisive and the momentum towards the top turn has never been so good.
Unlike a Mitu, it is not made to jump or land freestyle tricks. However, thanks to its light weight and reduced volume, it is fast and precise on the wave.
The width, the volume and the outline of the tail differ between the 5’4 and the 5’6 to suit the different riders and conditions. Manufactured in HD Foam Flex composite, this construction improves the balance of flex and stability. It offers lightness and provides a similar feel to classic surfboards. Shock absorbers are placed under the pad to provide extra comfort as well as to increase durability as the absorbers reduce the formation of dents.
The Shadow will let you charge like never before and will allow powerful vertical turns. Take your surfing skills to the next level.
When the water starts to roll and become 3D, it is important to have the right tool. F-One Surf Boards are designed in style that will make you stand out on the water and with an attention to detail that will help you take your riding to the next level.
When the waves are not up, you can stilll use the power of the wind and ulitimate carving shape of this surf board to your advantage. Jibing, speeding, pointing upwind – it is all great fun and freeriding starts to take on a new meaning when one of these Surf Boards is between you and the water.
Generally kitesurfers are used to having straps that attach you to the board. Well it is no longer that simple and obvious. Riding strapless is just unbelievable fun. Standing freely on the board that is moving very fast brings much more emotions to the whole aspect of riding. The challenge of just riding and cruising make it so different and challenging that everybody should try it. The carving feeling when everything relies on the riders position and balance is multiplied by 10. Pure fun.
When the wind is dead and the waters are moving and rolling, there is nothing better than just paddling those waves to surf them. You can use F-One Surf boards to do so and this will be a great experience.
