We are offering a board designed for SUP, Windsurf and foiling: the PAPENOO FOIL convertible !
With its compact shape and planing hull, the PAPENOO is the ideal to build up speed and ease the transition to the flying phase. As a SUP to foil over the waves, or as a windfoil board to fly with boom in your hands, the PAPENOO is ready for any challenge! It is also perfect to learn how to foil behind a boat. Starting from a stand-up position is much easier than having to deal with the water start. All it takes is wait for the boat to reach the right speed and then trigger the flight!
The compact shape naturally provides the right balance over the foil and makes it more maneuverable in flight. Its 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 rocker is fast with a deep single concave to emphasize the speed. The bottom of the board features a Deep KF Box located perfectly to optimize lift off and in-flight balance, as well as twin US tracks to mount any foil fitted with a top plate. Equipped with inserts for 4 foot-straps and a mast track, the board can also be used as a normal windsurf board for light wind wave riding.
The PAPENOO WINDFOIL convertible 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 reinforcement.
BAMBOO DECK VERSION:
The BAMBOO DECK 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.
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 sensations are totally new and absolutely gripping. Surfing the waves or a non-breaking swell up on a foil is truly magical. In windsurf mode everything becomes so silent and so smooth. 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 & extremely versatile board, proving excellent in so many different disciplines: SUP, Windsurf, Supfoil & Windfoil! This board is available in the following size: 7’11” x 30.5” - 123 L

Featured on all the 2016 SUP 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
5 - 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 tool can be opened in two parts to reveal an Allen key which can be used to easily fit all your F-ONE SUP fins (US or FUTURES® Box) without looking everywhere to find a tool.
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.
F-ONE kitefoils are equipped with the fully conical Deep KF-BOX.
All of our SUP benefit from our Bamboo Sandwich Technology construction. Every layer of bamboo is reinforced with two layers of fiberglass. 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.
The top deck of the board is lined with a layer of bamboo.
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.
