The progressive crossover surf freestyle boards.
The new discipline of strapless freestyle has created riders who do not only desire to smash waves, but delve into the progressive discipline of strapless freestyle. This is our collection of the gear that has been designed to deliver the ultimate performance for this discipline.
Designed for the new and growing discipline of strapless freestyle, they have focused on the aerial throw factor, maneuverability and carving. It has a quad concave that allows the board to plane faster and gives it increased agility. The load and pop is emphasized by the wings creating a narrower tail, giving more control at speed and the semi symmetrical outline make nose riding or landing on the fins easier. The overall result is a board that takes flat-water or small wave strapless riding to a whole new level.
The strike has been designed for small to medium surf and strapless freestyle. Its cut off nose shape makes the board turn sharply and the straight outline makes it more steady in chop. The outline also allows sufficient volume that is centered directly under the riders stance giving him more control of the board. This board is extremely intuitive to ride and really does excel in medium wave and aerial strapless moves. The Strapless comes complete with a self-adhesive EVA footpad and 5 Surf fins.
Developed alongside strapless legend Mitu Montiero, this board is in its 4th edition and remains a best seller. The outline of the board is designed to make it more responsive for tricks, while being wide enough to get a lot of lift and making the most of the waves energy. On the bottom they have kept a single concave that guarantees early planning and quick acceleration. On the 5’8 and 5’10, the concave has been reduced around the fins to make the board easier and more progressive in the turns. For the ESL version, we have elected to use our original BAMBOO SANDWICH CONSTRUCTION, which was an F-ONE innovation. ESL stands for ESSENTIAL as this is all we have kept for this board.
The angry swallow truly is a unique board by shape and design, it has a short stubby nose, wide midsection and tri-fin swallow tail. On the water it is stable with a snappy response that is great for waves and freestyle alike. It is an excellent all round contender but really stands out in marginal wave conditions when a lot of other boards struggle. It comes with the inserts and foot straps but also excels when ridden strapless.
