The sit-kite foil board was developed with three-time Paralympic athlete Thierry Schmitter. Designed around the needs of paraplegic riders, this board has an exclusive shape and an ingenious pivoting foil system. Its slim wood core also brings tailored flotation and flex with great resistance. 

  • Safe and easy to use
  • Designed to receive a pivoting foil system 
  • Shorter length for foiling

Technical Specifications

The combination of a wooden core for reduced volume with the pronounced nose rocker, bringing longitudinal and transversal curvature, makes the design of the F-ONE sit-kite board unique. Using a one-of-a-kind production process, this board benefits from a hybrid system between the twin tip and surfboard manufacturing. 

The heavily rounded nose and rather straight tail rocker bring riding sensation very close to those of a regular board. The rider’s feet are far forward in the sitting position, so it was crucial to have a pronounced spatulate nose. The rail is rounded in the front and rather ‘edgy’ in the back. The winger and swallow tail are reduced to bring even more lift and to offer an easy foil set-up.

The pivoting foil system features a slot that runs from the back of the board to the frame supporting the seat. When the rider heads out, the foil is completely tilted out of the water. The rider can then safely go where the water is deep enough, at which point they can deploy the foil by rotating it to its standard position, hence the need for the slot in the board to allow the mast to pass through.

To make the board indestructible, a small deck elevation has been incorporated to spread the local load of the frame into the board. Further, the deck layout and inserts position of the F-ONE sit-kite board are compatible with the Wolturnus sit-kite frame. The Unibox fins, size 35 or 50mm, enable easy beach landing, and help stabilize the ride when the foil is retracted. 

This board also features stainless steel inserts to fasten the seat frame, foot pads and straps.

Inspired by and perfectly adapted to wheelchair athletes, F-ONE’s sit-kite foil board will bring the pure thrill of kite foiling and of flying above the water.
