This surf hybrid (aluminium-carbon) foil is made to lift off as early as possible on a wave, an outside reef or soft wave. Its maneuverability and controlled accelerations provide good steering to remain in the right section of the wave when surfing.
The Foil is made of:
- Mast Aluminium 65 cm
- Front Wing Carbon Surf 1 200 cm²
- Fuselage SST Carbon Freeride 42 cm
- Stabilizer Carbon Freeride 300 cm²
- Deep KF-Box
Accessible and really progressive, the F-ONE FOIL is the new weapon of choice to not only ride, but truly fly over the water.
Foiling is more than a new discipline; it’s a whole new world. The F-ONE foil has been developed with the most experienced foil riders and every element of the foil has been designed to deliver the best imaginable experience out on the water whether you about to start or if you already master the magic of foiling.
With innovation deeply rooted into its DNA, the F-ONE team has worked tirelessly to design, engineer, test and optimize this new piece of equipment. The shapes and profiles have been carefully selected and optimized by F-ONE’s in-house naval architect and the foil assembly concept was completely thought back towards ease of use.

The F-ONE HYBRID ALUMINIUM/CARBON foil masts are very user friendly offering both ease of use and performance. Using a specific aluminum extruded profile designed to be fast but forgiving and a medium chord length of 11 cm, its lightweight makes the foil easy to carry and move around both on the shore and in the water. Equipped with the patented connecting system FAST CONNECTION DEVICE and constructed from PRE-PREG carbon, this mast offers a unique and innovative assembling concept and comes with great modularity and ease of use as one single bolt is all that’s needed to assemble the main parts together. Compatible with all F-ONE wings and foil parts, it is also completely watertight and corrosion free.
The Hybrid masts are available in many different lengths: 55 / 65 / 75 / 90 cm, to fit everyone’s need from the beginner to the advanced foil rider, among all the disciplines: Wakefoiling, Supfoiling, Windfoiling & Surf Foiling. Easily fitted to an F-ONE FOILBOARD thanks to the all conical DEEP K-F BOX, this mast offers great potential to enjoy the thrills of foiling.
This mast is available with a KF or Deep KF-BOX.
Area: 1 200 cm²
Aspect Ratio: 3.15
Weight: 1.15 Kg*
Designed for wave riding, the generous surface area and compact aspect ratio of this wing offers easy and immediate lift. It is specifically shaped to lift off at very low speed and surf the most marginal waves. Thanks to its controlled flying speed this wing lets you follow the wave without excessive pace and remains very user friendly.
Maneuverable and very intuitive to enter the curves and bends, it remains stable and is ideal for surfing or for learning how to foil behind a boat. This wing is perfect with our MAGIC 8’6’’ and 9’6’’ boards, as well as with the PAPENOO convertible, but can be adapted on any surf or Sup wave board.
Area: 300 cm²
Aspect Ratio: 5.8
Weight: 0.24 kg
Solid, versatile and progressive, the Freeride stabilizer can be combined with any of the freeride or carving front wings and fits a very large range of practices.
Equipped with generous winglets, the stabilizer blade offers fantastic control with enough surface area to provide full confidence in all situations.
Built in Carbon Composite and designed to be securely mounted on F-ONE fuselages, its profile and angle of incidence were tuned to achieve a very intuitive balance which will help you get your foiling maneuvers in more easily.
Weight: 0.47 kg
Built out of Pre-preg carbon fibers around a steel core, the F-ONE fuselages are designed to be extremely stiff and provide perfect control with a low drag sectional area.
With a full stainless steel tail, the assembly with the stabilizer is solid and very reliable. The tail matches the angle of incidence required onto the stabilizer to guarantee an intuitive balance whatever the wing combo selected.
The 42cm fuselage provides better directional and pitch stability which helps a lot at lower and medium flying speeds. Recommended with Freeride 800, 600 wings.
We have developed and patented a brand new concept for the assembly of the mast, fuselage and wings because this is a critical aspect of the kitefoil. It drives the reliability and ease of use for assembling and taking the foil apart for transportation, as much as the repeatability of the trim between the front and rear wings.
The main benefit of the system is the one and only screw that maintains all the parts together: mast, front wing and fuselage.This screw is placed longitudinally and is therefore only stressed in tension instead of shear or bending. The whole foil can be tightened up with everything working in a sound mechanical way.
To gain some precision, robustness and packed-up volume, the screw is combined with a squared, conical assembling system, which has been proven as the best mechanical setup to lock any motion or degree of freedom between the parts, while also contributing greatly to tensional resistance.
With Pre-preg fabrics, the carbon fiber is directly impregnated with epoxy resin by its manufacturer; this guarantees a perfect ratio between epoxy and carbon, and represents the highest quality process. The material is stored in cooled rooms and catalyzes at 120° C in a mold.
The Pre-preg fibers must travel in refrigerated trucks and be stored frozen. The refined ratio between carbon fiber and epoxy resin provides the lightest weight with the best mechanical properties of carbon fiber.

This technology takes advantage of the same principles as standard Pre-preg but uses a different type of fiber which is better suited to mold small parts with complex shapes. It allows us to build accurately smaller sized parts that are very reliable.
The advantages of these two technologies are their high end mechanical properties, but also their fast production cycle which allows us to work with a faster and more rational construction process.(1h to cure a pre-preg mast and about 10 minutes for a Forged Carbon part). This is crucial for delivering a high quality product.

F-ONE kitefoils are equipped with the fully conical Deep KF-BOX. Its shape makes it easy to connect and fits well with the thickness of the kite boards due to its moderate height. The Deep KF-BOX offers a perfect, tight support.
Can I setup my foil on any SUP board ?
Any SUP board might not be fit for supfoiling since it requires good aptitudes for take-off and the right box location. The longer the board, the trickier it gets to lift off and to place the box in the right location.
Can I setup my foil on any Windsurf board?
Yes, but the box needs to be located in the right place to achieve the right balance.
Are your foils available with other box standards such as Tuttle for example?
Yes, it is available on demand.
Can you supply Deep KF Box inserts to fit into the boards?
Are all the blades, fuselages, masts of the range SUPFOIL – KITEFOIL – WINDFOIL all compatible with each others?
Yes, thanks to our patented FCD connection system, everything is compatible.
How is it possible to use the same front wing for supfoiling and windfoiling?
From a design point of view, the brief is quite similar: the foil needs to lift out of the water a rider and his/her board with more or less performances or accessibility. The driving force either comes from paddling together with the energy of the wave or from the sail force of the windsurf rig.
On the other side, kitefoiling is different since the kite pulls upwards and carries some of the rider and board weight. But some kitefoil wings can be used in windfoil or supfoil, such as the Freeride 800 by example. And the 900 and 1000 supfoil wings can also be used for kitefoiling.
Why do the Supfoil and Windfoil masts have different lengths?
When supfoiling, it is all about keeping your balance at the top of the foil. The longer the mast, the more difficult it is to maintain the balance. The foil also doesn’t run across a high chop or waves during flight.
When windfoiling, the rig provides more support and more stability. The foil can be used on the open sea and will come across higher chops and waves around 1m or more. More length is therefore required to fly over these.
Is it easier to learn how to foil behind a boat?
Yes! The shorter mast of a supfoil and the Freeride 1000 wing are the ideal combo to learn how to fly. A beginner doesn’t even need to waterstart. All that is required is to stand up on the SUP, feet located in the right place with the rope in hand.
The boat can set the pace accurately to reach the ideal speed for the rider to feel the lift from the foil. He will thereby learn easily how to fly by focusing solely on the foil.
Is it possible to windfoil with a 75cm supfoil mast?
Yes, of course, but doing the opposite (supfoiling with 90cm windfoil mast) is more difficult.
Is there a way to practice sup, supfoil and windfoil with the same foil and board?
Absolutely! Thanks to our convertible Papenoo board which can be used as a normal wave SUP but can also be used for supfoiling and windfoiling if a rig is added.
