The MADEIRO is the board for all riders looking to perform in all wave types.
This year we have made considerable changes in order to increase the performances of the board in all wave types.
We have increased the volume of the nose and added more rocker towards it.
Having increased the volume of the nose brings more stability and a better longitudinal balance. Take-off is easier and this volume helps during the bottom-turns for very intuitive carving.
The MADEIRO has now a round/pintail which brings more fluidity and manoeuvrability. Rail-to-rail surfing, easy top turns and less speed loss.
The hull keeps its simple concave with thinner rails thanks to the bevels. F-ONE Surf SUP boards have quite some width for their given volume. It allows to get the necessary stability whilst keeping thinner rails. The MADEIRO surfs better with thinner rails and more width than with thicker rails and less width.[CARBON ONLY] The smaller sizes (< 8’0”) are genuine high performance surf boards, very well balanced and especially responsive to perform the most explosive surf. They have new width 6’8 x 23.5 – 7’2 x 24.5 – 7’5 x 25.5 – 7’7 x 26.5 – 7’9 x 27.5.
The middle sizes (8’0” / 8’3”) offer a very dynamic behaviour with enough volume to let all types of riders express themselves with some progressive and committed surf. Available in 8’0 x 29 – 8’3 x 30
The larger sizes (8’5” / 8’8”) are very accessible wave boards with a lot of stability. They remain very responsive in the waves and offer a lot of possibilities for the heavier riders or those less experimented. This year they are narrower and have the new shape, available in: 8’5 x 31 – 8’8 x 32
The BAMBOO DECK construction is available sizes from 8’0” to 8’8”.
This robust construction has been proven for many years of production and offers a weight to resistance ratio with great reliability. The deck features a layer of bamboo to provide a tough impact and crushing resistance while the many layers of reinforcement on the bottom ensures solid strength.
The top deck of the board is lined with a layer of bamboo.
BAMBOO Sandwich technology
Our SUP boards benefit from the BAMBOO SANDWICH TECHNOLOGY construction. Every layer of bamboo is sandwiched between two layers of fiberglass or between a layer of carbon. This allows the sandwich technology to emphasize the characteristics of the bamboo. The final result is a light structure that is super strong and extremely reliable.
For all surfers one of the inconveniences of a SUP is the large size of the rails, too big to dig into a turn. So, how do we make a sup with a thin rail without losing the volume of the board? The answer is the Beveled rail.
They are small flat lateral sections in V shapes, which allows us to reduce the thickness of the rail in certain sections (1). The other advantage is that they reduce the planing surface of the board (2) which therefore reduces drag. The combination of a thinner rail and slightly narrower width allows the board to get a better edge into the turns and a tighter arc.
Featured on the whole F-ONE SUP hard boards range:
the innovative and multifunction handle developed by F-ONE.
The SMART HANDLE includes the following features :
1 – Decompression valve
2 – Multifunction tool compartment
3 – Recessed volume
4 – Screwdriver head
– Allen key
More comfortable with advanced ergonomics, it is completely recessed and makes it easier to carry the SUP. The new handle helps a lot to grab the boards easily when lying flat on the ground or on the water.
A groove has been added onto the thread of the valve so that you only have to unscrew by a few turns to let the air out. No need to unscrew it completely and therefore no risk to lose it.
The handle already includes the screw for the decompression valve (1).
A specific multifunction tool has been created and fits neatly into the handle (2).
The top part of the tool was designed to serve as a screwdriver to open or close the decompression valve.
To prevent from oversight and to make sure the decompression valve is always closed when the SUP is in the water, a reminder has been included: you cannot fit the tool back into its place nor can you carry the board if you haven’t closed the decompression valve. Furthermore, the tool finds itself clipped on in this position. This was made to ensure the board can be transported without losing the tool. You therefore don’t have to look for the last place where you left the tool and can be sure that anyone grabbing your board will notice that the valve is not shut.
