Lieuwe Shotgun Paradise Series Board

Discover the thrill of strapless freestyle and the pure feeling of wave riding with F-ONE’s 2023 additions. This year, the TWEAK makes its debut in their range, while the revolutionary Magnet Carbon and the legendary MITU Pro Flex have been enhanced for even greater performance and fun! In addition, nine kitesurf boards are now available, ranging from the Magnet Carbon, a strapless revolution, to the Shadow, a highly reactive wave board.

Here’s everything you need to know!

The Tweak

Waves / Strapless Freestyle
5’2” / 5’4”

The new TWEAK surfboard follows your every move in total control. Responsive and intuitive, it planes early, turns quickly, and offers great manoeuvrability for amazing sensations onshore conditions and small to medium-sized waves.

The TWEAK is precise and turns incredibly well with very little effort. It pivots on the fins efficiently, and simply goes where you look. It also offers a great recovery when the wave loses power. Most particularly, this board will perform at its best in onshore conditions when you’re looking for tight turns and easy accelerations. It is also great to surf in mellow and small to medium-sized waves.

Inspired by the design of fish surfboards, the TWEAK has a compact shape and tight rocker line with a marked channel for early planing, good accelerations, and great maneuverability. Its fairly parallel and elongated outline leads to an easy surf with incredible control. The diamond tail provides lift for smooth starts, and helps in effortless turns and rail-to-rail transfers to achieve amazing top turns in the waves.

Moreover, our R&D team was looking for a compact, versatile board that could also work in competitions where heats combine surfing and freestyle. Designed to inspire confidence, the TWEAK thus performs incredibly well in freestyle. It brings a natural pop and excellent maneuverability, and each landing is soft and stable.

Overall, it is a fantastic board for intermediate to experienced riders and remains accessible to anyone already familiar with kitesurfing.

This board is constructed using the HD Foam Flex Composite technology, with optimized flex for maximum reliability, comfort, and maneuverability. The mechanical characteristics achieved by this construction provide a lighter weight and a perfect, classical surfboard feel.

Shock absorbers are placed under the pad to increase the board’s durability and provide extra comfort since they effectively absorb all impacts.

The TWEAK is available in 5’2 and 5’4 and is equipped with a set of F-ONE Flow Carbon XS fins.

The Magnet Carbon

Strapless Freestyle
4’11” / 5’1”

The strapless revolution continues with the MAGNET CARBON V2. Discover a new shape for an even more electrifying and sensational ride, and better accelerations, pop, and handling. It is stunningly lightweight and ultra-resistant.

Jump higher and immediately land all the strapless tricks you have been training for months. With its surreal lightweight and extremely thin profile, this state-of-the-art board levitates to your feet during airs. As if surrounded by an invisible force field, you will be able to go for trick after trick with the board following your every move.

For this V2, the width of the board was lightly reduced, and the nose is slightly rounder and more progressive for even better handling in the chop, faster accelerations, and more comfort overall.

The reduced thickness brings improved control and an innovative flex to provide more comfort and precision while riding and landing, even in the harshest conditions. Thanks to the thin rails and compact shape, your centre of gravity is lower, leading to incredible responsiveness and balance in the air. It’s a totally new feel in terms of control, with more direct feedback.

The MAGNET CARBON V2 has a mind-blowing pop and accelerates effortlessly with you into the air. The straight rocker line combined with the parallel outline offers the speed and stability you need to boost huge aerial tricks. The landings are controlled and smooth thanks to the combined deep channels precisely carved on the bottom of the board with the right amount of flex.

F-ONE brought a revolution to the strapless freestyle world with the MAGNET CARBON and its unique and innovative SLIM Tech Carbon Custom construction, which tremendously reduces the board’s weight, increases its strength, and improves its flex. This construction makes the board both light and incredibly robust, probably the two most important aspects of a strapless freestyle board.

The pad covers enough area of the board so you get the extra grip you need in all situations, and a grab rail has been recessed into the deck so you can easily grab the board during those tic-tacs.

This board is available in 4’11 and 5’1. It is equipped with a set of F-ONE Flow Carbon M for the front fins and of F-ONE Flow Carbon XS for the rear fin.

Transform your ride with the MAGNET CARBON V2, the most innovative strapless board on the market.

MITU Pro Flex

Waves / Strapless Freestyle
5’2” / 5’4” / 5’6” / 5’8” / 5’10”

Known for its super agile and reactive outline, the MITU PRO FLEX and its improved shape offers the sensation of a traditional surfboard with incredible versatility and durability for unrivalled comfort and flow on the water.

With the compact outline, the single concave remains the DNA of the MITU PRO models. Its unique shape helps the board start planing early, accelerate in an instant, and brings stability and predictability in all conditions.

The shape has been improved this year with lateral flat sections on the bottom, as well as a flat section on the bottom between your front and back foot to give directional stability. The rocker line allows a better edge control and an overall improved feeling in all conditions. Its distinct swallow tail makes it very easy to initiate turns and carve with.

Volume, stability, and float are perfectly balanced for a board which surfs better than ever before. It smooths out rough situations and makes you ride longer.

The MITU PRO FLEX is constructed using the HD Foam Flex Composite technology, with optimized flex for maximum reliability, comfort, and maneuverability. The mechanical characteristics achieved provide a lighter weight and a perfect surfboard feel.

Shock absorbers are placed under the pad to increase the board’s durability and provide extra comfort since they effectively absorb all impacts for the riders.

This range features five sizes and goes from 5’2 all the way to 5’10. The larger sizes have a bit more emphasis on the planing abilities and general stability, while the smaller sizes focus more on maneuverability. All share the same shape features, with their specific outline to make the most of the wave’s energy.

All sizes are equipped with a full pad and have deck inserts built-in so they can be equipped with foot straps. The 5’2 and 5’4 come with a set of F-ONE Flow Carbon XS fins. The 5’6, 5’8 and 5’10 come with a set of F-ONE Flow Carbon M fins.
