Presentation of F-One TWEAK Surf-board
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.
|Size||Dimensions (CM)||Dimensions (INCH)||Volume (L)||Weight (KG)|
|5'2||157 x 56 x 5.2 cm||5'2 x 18.1" x 2.1"||20.6 L||3.15 kg|
|5’4||162.5 x 47 x 5.3 cm||5'4 x 18.5" x 2.1"||22.2 L||3.28 kg|
|HD FOAM FLEX COMPOSITE|
To face the ever-higher constraints applied by the riders on their kite surfboards, F-ONE has engineered a new foam composite construction with optimized flex for maximum reliability, comfort and maneuverability.
The mechanical characteristics achieved by this construction provide a lighter weight and a perfect surfboard feel.
|HEEL SHOCK ABSORBER|
The deck has been recessed by 5mm on a wide area underneath the front foot in order to add an EVA shock absorbing foam layer.
This foam layer effectively absorbs all impacts for the riders and makes the board even more durable.
RTM Technology stands for Resin Transfer Molding. This process uses a closed mold to produce accurate composite parts.
The resin is injected in the mold after it is closed, with the dry fiber having been placed inside beforehand. The closed mold injection allows for great shape accuracy. In addition, the epoxy resin used makes the fins or stabs stronger and more responsive, thus providing a sharper feel on the water.
