PAPENOO

The PAPENOO models can be classified as “short SUP” with a focus on speed, acceleration and maneuverability to rip off smaller waves like never before!

The initial target was to design a board as short as possible to gain in maneuverability and agility. A rectangular outline proved the right solution to keep enough hull area and volume for stability. We have also worked with a lot of attention on the glide of these boards. The shape of PAPENOO features a genuine planning hull which is both efficient and enjoyable to ride.

Technical Specifications

SHAPE / DESIGN :
With its rectangular outline, we have been able to keep enough volume while maintaining a reasonable width. It’s uselessto make very wide boards which wouldn’t have the ability to take on speed.
For a given width the PAPENOO are slightly longer than most of the similar type boards and this was made to ensure a good paddling speed and a super easy take off. The rocker line is tailored for this short shape which resulted in straighter lines to get the speed while maneuverability is provided by the reduced length.
Board thickness remains quite standard to keep some good control. The specificity of this shape comes from its hull which features a deep single concave running from the front third of the board all the way to the tail, with a flat on each side. These lateral flats are tilted into a V shape at the front of the board to soften the entry into the curves. The wide tail has pushed for a Quattro fin setup to keep the fins on each side of the single concave and close to the rails.

SURFING :
Thanks to this new, short outline, you can select a board which is ½ foot shorter than your usual length and still have a board which is impressively stable. You can even drop the width by 1 inch from your usual standard to get a more lively board. At the take off, you’ll be surprised by its ability to catch very small waves. The PAPENOO is made for waves between 0.40 and 1.50 m.
This original shape then needs to be driven correctly: the board quickly takes on speed providing a distinctive feeling of gliding over the water. Once at speed, the board can be surfed softly, as if it was sitting on an air cushion, and will perform any maneuvers without requiring brutal inputs from the rider. Supple steering is more appropriate than forcing the rails into the water.

Very surprising by its maneuverability and its planning sensations, this board is a real booster for your surf.
The testimonials are clear: anyone who has tried it has improved his surfing level.
The BAMBOO DECK construction has been proven for many years of production and offer 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.

  • Smart handle

    Featured on the whole F-ONE 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
    – 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.
